Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Choctaw Cottage is an outstanding 5 bedroomed detached property built in the American colonial style, offering excellent commuter links as well as doorstep access to Stroud Green itself. First built in 1908 by an American family from the Mid-West who evidently wished to have strong reminders of home, Choctaw Cottage was significantly extended in the 1980s with the addition of a new wing and has further benefited from numerous refurbishments under the current owners. Situated on a corner plot of a desirable location with excellent access to the outside world, as well as boasting around 176 sqm of floorspace across three floors, the property would be well suited to large families. The property has also previously been used as a HMO and thus has clear potential to be re-converted for this use.

The ground floor boasts two sizeable reception rooms fitted out with traditional wood-burning stove fireplaces, one of which leads via French doors to the outside courtyard, as well as a small WC and frontal entrance with a sizeable porch. Also situated on the ground floor is a large, open-plan kitchen-diner with brickwork features complete with its own pantry, Range oven and AGA, with access to both the back courtyard via a traditional stable door as well as the rest of the ground floor.

The first floor contains the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, two further double bedrooms one of which has access to additional loft space, a walk-in wet room with accessible facilities as well as a balcony which offers stunning views over Stroud Green.

The second floor has two double bedrooms with sizeable eaves storage space and horizontal beam features, as well as a further bathroom.

The outside of the property has a small frontal garden as well as a gated courtyard at the back, complete with its own water feature and brick shed that can be used as either a further storage space or utility room.

Choctaw Cottage has gas central heating and double glazing throughout, as well as off-street parking and cleverly-designed storage spaces on every floor that utilise every inch of available space. The property has excellent commuter links and is within 10-15 minutes' walk of two railway stations and a bus station. Other nearby locations include Stroud Green (doorstep access), Newbury town centre (0.7 miles), Newbury Racecourse (0.8 miles) and Greenham Common (4.1 miles).
