The Property
Welcombe is believed to date from 1928 and has been extensively refurbished and extended to create a beautifully presented and comfortable family home. The accommodation is spacious and well laid out with a central hall leading off to
the reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room with Aga is the heart of the home with the dining area looking out over the gardens. Like the ground floor, the first floor is well laid out with a generous master bedroom suite.

The garage block is a substantial addition to the property and is currently used as offices/studio.

The Location
Welcombe is located on the edge of the village of Burghclere which lies about 4 miles to the south of Newbury with its wide range of shops, services, pubs and restaurants, including the new Parkway shopping centre, a multi-screen cinema, sports club, golf courses as well as the famous racecourse. The village has both a primary and a secondary school, a church, village hall and recreation ground. Burghclere and Crookham Commons provide a wide choice of walks.

Gardens and Grounds
Welcombe is approached from the road via wooden gates to a large gravelled parking area in front of the house and studios. The house is situated well back in its plot with most of the garden lying to the rear and east. The gardens are beautifully laid out with some mature and specimen trees with different ‘compartments’ all designed for a party lifestyle. There is a wooden cabin/pub furnished with a bar with doors opening out onto decking overlooking the swimming pool and further decking and a sitting area beyond. To the south of this is a charming woodland copse with a log cabin, to the front of which is a sitting area around a fire-pit.

Closer to the house and accessed from the kitchen is a covered decked area with barbeque and lighting. A decked path leads through a charming ‘harmony’ garden to an octagonal sitting area enclosed by a plant-clad pergola.

The path continues to a large area of lawn bordered by a line of mature oaks with views over open pasture beyond. To the rear and south of the house is a brick garden store and a timber
storage shed, a kitchen garden with raised beds and a greenhouse to one side. On the south-west elevation of the house is a large orchard.

Communications are excellent by road to major road networks, and by rail via either Newbury (Paddington) or Whitchurch (Waterloo).
