The Location
Ambala is located overlooking the village green in the popular village of Cold Ash which lies about 4 miles north east of Newbury. The surrounding countryside is rural and primarily woodland
providing a network of footpaths. The village has a pub, post offce/stores, church and village hall together with a well-regarded primary school. There is a good selection of schools in the area both primary and secondary, private and state.

The Property
Ambala was originally a modest house believed to have been built circa 1960 which has since been extensively extended and refurbished to create an outstanding family home set in superb gardens and grounds. The accommodation is beautifully and
immaculately presented with exceptional space and flexibility. From the panelled entrance hall doors open into a spectacular and light living space which includes the sitting room and breakfast/dining room both opening into the orangery and the vaulted
kitchen/breakfast room with hand-made American Oak units beyond. All the ground floor rooms on the rear elevation have either bi-folding doors or French windows (all double glazed) opening
onto the south facing terrace. In addition to this modern living space there is also a formal dining room and study, and to the other side of the hall is a family/sitting room and large offce with separate
access which could easily be converted into a self-contained annexe subject to the usual planning consents. On the frst floor, as well as comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, is an exceptional master
bedroom suite with ftted bespoke oak wardrobes throughout the bedroom, dressing room and bathroom.

Ambala is approached from the lane to parking in front of the house and garaging. A wide and generous terrace runs along the rear and south facing elevation which is slightly elevated and looks
down onto the outstanding private gardens. There are some deep and mature mixed borders, ornamental trees and shrubs, and on the eastern boundary an enclosed and beautifully designed kitchen garden with greenhouse to one side. There is an irrigation system throughout the gardens. To the east side of the terrace is a charming summer house which is used for entertaining.

Communications are excellent with major road networks easily accessed via the A4, A34 and M4, and there is a mainline station at Thatcham (Paddington line).
