Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Parsonage is an impressive period house situated on the edge of Curridge, a small village to the north east of Newbury and within easy access of A34 and M4. EPC Rating: G

It is a fantastic family house believed to date from
the mid 19th century; it is located within the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but is not Listed.

The rooms are well-proportioned with good ceiling heights, good natural light and wonderful views across the garden and paddock beyond.

A one bedroom annexe provides excellent staff or guest
accommodation but could easily be incorporated into the house.

The Old Parsonage was once the home of the famous cartoonist, H.M.Bateman, and the current owners have collected some of his work, which may be available to the purchaser as part of the sale.

The beautiful gardens are principally laid to lawn with a variety of borders and mature trees. There are external lights and an irrigation system. There is an attractive rose garden with ornamental pond and a rhododendron garden.

French windows from the orangery provide access to a sheltered terrace and outdoor heated swimming pool.
To the north of the property there is an orchard area with pear, plum, apple and cherry trees and a soft fruit cage.
The house is approached via a pair of gates which lead to a gravelled drive and parking area.

The paddock has water troughs and amounts to about 1.5 acres; the stables and tack room have power.

The accommodation includes: Reception hall with oak floor, light and airy kitchen made by Mark Wilkinson with granite worksurfaces, French limestone tiled floor, central island leading into the adjacent orangery.
