Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine example of a Grade II Listed Queen Anne house with 18th century and Regency additions, which enjoys an elevated position overlooking wonderful grounds and boasts a wealth of original features including a majestic sweeping staircase rising from the entrance hall to the first floor. As one would expect with a property of this era, the rooms are of generous proportions, being wonderfully light with sash windows and high ceilings. The house exudes a feeling of warmth and comfort whilst catering for modern day living requirements. Many of the rooms including the formal drawing room and dining room enjoy far reaching views over the extensive grounds and the church and fields beyond. The country-style kitchen has an adjoining breakfast room which leads through to a further sitting room, bedroom and bathroom which together with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor could potentially serve as secondary or guest accommodation if required, with the benefit of its own front door. The bedrooms on the upper floor are all well proportioned with delightful aspects and are served by the four bathrooms on the first floor.
Outside

Approached via wooden electric gates which provide privacy, there is a gravel turning circle to the side of the house with a central circular feature and the drive continues past the house to the rear, leading to a further set of wooden gates back to Speen Lane. There is ample parking in front of the garage block and the coach house. Adjacent to the house is a large flagstone terrace. The wonderful grounds extend to just over 2½ acres, south-facing, thereby enjoying the sun all day from east to west. The house is elevated with the grounds sweeping downwards with splendid far reaching views over the church and green fields beyond, mainly lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees. The garage offers a utility room and a shower room (with external access) and offers further scope, whilst opposite is the coach house with a courtyard in between. In addition, there is a timber shed and dog kennel.

Situation

The Grange is located in the popular area of Speen on the western edge of Newbury, within a conservation area and offering locally a church, village hall and a public house. The property is within walking distance of Newbury and amenities. The town itself is a very convenient location as it offers access to rail and road communication routes including the M4 motorway (Junction 13) via the A34 Newbury bypass. There is a pleasant walk through the park and town centre to Newbury Station which provides a service to London Paddington in under an hour. Excellent shopping in the town includes the new Parkway shopping mall. There is also an excellent Waitrose and the town has its own theatre and cinema, a choice of restaurants, the Racecourse and the Kennet and Avon canal runs through the heart of the town. Glorious surrounding countryside is accessible, much of it designated as being
within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area offers an excellent selection of highly regarded schools including Cheam, St. Gabriel’s, Horris Hill, Bradfield College, Winchester, Marlborough, Downe House and Elstree.
