Full description

YOPA are delighted to offer for sale this chain free and recently renovated four bedroom fully detached home. Situated in the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac and close to the centre of Kintbury, this property is within walking distance of several local shops (village baker, butcher and corner stores), Kintbury CE Primary School, three outstanding pubs, a GP doctors surgery and a mainline train station with direct trains to London.

Surrounded by stunning countryside views and walks, Kintbury was voted number one in the Telegraphs’ top 10 of Britain’s Best Villages (2014). With the towns of Hungerford and Newbury both within a 10 minute drive and also on the trainline, Kintbury is accessible and perfectly located for the best of local country living combined with the more vibrant experience of town life.

This spacious property has a recently refurbished entrance hall and downstairs WC, with a well fitted and generously sized modern kitchen. A large utility room with a second sink gives access to the rear garden. The dining room is also of a large size and features double glazed French doors which open out to the patio and garden. A large bay window enhances the family feel of the living room which opens up through double-doors into the dining room.

The rear garden is substantial (1900 square foot approx.) with an extra side yard area housing the brand new 1000 litre double bunded oil tank and outside boiler, which would also be perfect for a side shed, wood store or bike rack. The garden has recently been completely landscaped with over 40 tonne of high grade topsoil and grass seed. The garden also features a wood cabin (3m by 4m) which has cabling and pipework ready to connect power and water.

The first floor of the property enjoys three good sized bedrooms and one smaller room ideal for a nursery or office. The master bedroom features his and hers built-in wardrobes and a south facing view. The main family bathroom has an extra long bath and matching tiles with the downstairs WC. The loft space has been boarded and can be accessed via a built-in loft-ladder.

At the beginning of the year the central heating was fully converted to an oil system as there is no gas in Kintbury. The brand new, Grant external oil boiler saves space and reduces noise whilst providing efficiency and a huge cost saving when compared to electric storage heaters. A new 250 litre combination water tank in the fully boarded out loft allows for heating from the oil boiler or electric heating should the need arise. This frees up the airing cupboard for extra storage.

The front of the property has a driveway with space for 3 to 4 vehicles which is bordered by a decent sized front garden.

The seller has also applied and had approval for planning permission on the property (planning permission ref no: 18/01011/HOUSE). These plans allow for the garage to be converted into habitable space, the Kitchen to be opened through to the utility and widened into the rear of the garage and a second floor extension above the garage to allow for two double bedrooms.

The plans describe a bigger master bedroom with an indulgent, fully fitted, walk-in wardrobe space. This would also allow for the smallest bedroom to be converted into the main bathroom turning the current family bathroom into an en-suite. All in, the property would end up as a five bedroom House whilst making the front symmetrical with two full height bay windows.

 This is a fantastic home for a growing family with enough space for any eventuality. The garden could easily take a large conservatory, greenhouse, vegetable garden and still have space for children to play.  The property is within 15 minutes of the M4 (junctions 13 and 14) and is just over an hour away from London by car.

NB:  On the page where the floor plan is located, there are drawings of both the proposed ground and first floor layout if the current planning permission was used.
