Tenure: Freehold

Beautiful family house in this lovely village, built by respected local builders Rivar and with planning for further accommodation.


Birch House lies in the pretty village of Burghclere, just to the south of the market town of Newbury. The village itself has a church, public house, primary school and secondary school. Newbury and Basingstoke, both of which are within a short drive, provide a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities.

Communications in the area are excellent with regular fast train services to Paddington from Newbury and to Waterloo from Basingstoke. The A34 bypass, M4 and M3 give excellent road access to Heathrow airport, London, the Midlands and the West Country.

There is an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways in the area giving access to excellent countryside. There is racing at Newbury, Salisbury and Bath and fishing on the Kennet and Lambourn. Private schools in the area include Cheam, Elstree, Horris Hill, St Gabriel's, and Downe House.


Built in 2011 and benefitting from the remainder of the NHBC guarantee Birch House occupies a lovely setting in this sought after village.

The property is ideally suited for modern living with the generous double height hallway providing a fantastic feature. On the ground floor there is an excellent kitchen/dining room with a breakfast bar and space for sofas and a dining table. The dining area has doors out to the garden as do the family room and sitting room. Also on the ground floor there is a study, cloak room and utility room offering access to the garage and garden. The property features under floor heating throughout the ground floor.

The first floor offers two en-suite bedrooms and two further bedrooms served by an excellent family bathroom.

The property also benefits from planning permission to convert the loft to additional accommodation comprising a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom with a new staircase in place of the cupboards on the first floor landing.(Ref: 15/00037/HSE, granted 26/3/2015).

Outside, there is a paved parking area in front of the attached garage. The garage also features a large loft area.

The gardens surround the property on two sides and are private and feature shrub borders and a paved terrace area for outdoor dining.

Square Footage: 2,554 sq ft


From Newbury, take the A339 south passing St. Gabriel's School. At the roundabout at the bottom of the hill take the second exit passing The Swan on the left. Continue along this road for approximately 2 miles and at the roundabout take the first exit signposted to Burghclere. At the 'T' junction turn left and follow the road past the memorial chapel on the left and through the chicanes. The Laurels will shortly be found on the left hand side.
