Full description

A completely refurbished and extended 1930's family home with stunning gardens on a no-through road in a unique setting.


Having recently undergone extensive renovations including a vaulted oak extension across the back of the house, Meadow View is now an exquisite family home with spacious living spaces bathed in endless natural light and with stunning views from all rooms.

The 40ft kitchen/dinning/family room is triple aspect and enjoys far reaching views across the garden to the woodlands beyond. It leads, through bi-fold doors, to the new raised hardwood veranda. The whole space is perfect for families and entertaining. The room includes a new wood-burning stove with a portland stone surround.

The formal sitting room also has a new wood-burning stove and bi-fold doors offering access to the veranda.

Reception three is used as a playroom but would make a wonderful formal dining room.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, a luxury en-suite and a large family bathroom with under floor heating. The master bedroom and bedroom two are vaulted with floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the glorious views.

Adjacent to the main house is a double garage with a room above and full bathroom. Making it a versatile space, whether it is a home office, games room or additional accommodation.

There is also a useful and sizeable cellar, various sheds and a greenhouse.


To the front of the house is a gravel driveway with plenty of parking for a number of vehicles.

The south facing gardens, originally planted and landscaped by a Royal Horticultural Specialist over 40 years ago, are now abundant with mature and architectural trees and shrubs. The gardens have recently been enhanced by extensive updated landscaping to create a truly epic and magical space.

There is a newly laid large Italian porcelain tiled patio area with newly created brick and hardwood planters.

Power sockets and lights are located around the garden and down to the woodland.

Generous lawn terraces wrap around the sides and rear of the property with elevated views over the gardens.

There is a network of paths and trails around the garden leading to a private woodland with fruit trees, a tree house and zip wire.

The gates at the rear of the woodland lead directly onto a public footpath providing access to the ancient woodland of Cold Ash and Westrop and reaching toward Bucklebury Common.

Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the desirable village of Cold Ash, Meadow View offers unrivalled access to woodland trails and open countryside. The welcoming and friendly village has amenities including a shop/post office, two public houses, two well-regarded primary schools and Downe House, one of the UK's leading independent girls' schools. There is a well-tended village green with tennis courts, playground, cricket and football pitches. There are buses from the end of the alley which go to local, well regarded secondary schools Trinity in Newbury and Downs in Compton. Additionally, there are buses from the village to independent schools such as Abingdon, St. Helen and St. Katherine's and St. Gabriel's.
The nearby market town of Newbury, boasts a comprehensive new shopping area, its famous racecourse and historic pedestrianised high street, offering a range of amenities, including a theatre, cinema, leisure/fitness centres, and a wide and growing choice of restaurants and bars. The M4 and A34 are on the outskirts of the town, and give excellent access to London, the West Country, the South Coast and the Midlands. Rail links at nearby Theale and Newbury service London Paddington in 41 mins and 51 mins respectively.
