Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1908 this unique Edwardian home offers the best of town living.

Prior to the land being purchased in 1906 to build Choctaw Cottage this plot was home to the local wheelwright. With the Coach House opposite, travellers from London to Bristol would stop off in Newbury to rest for the night, take in some supper and ale and get their carriage wheels checked or repaired ready to continue their journey the following morning.

Built in the American colonial style by a family from Minnesota, Choctaw Cottage is so-called after their local native american tribe back home in the USA. As one of the area's most interesting and older properties Choctaw Cottage sits on a corner plot overlooking beautiful Stroud Green.
Its charming exterior is traditional red-brick with white painted windows and doors, a balcony, picket fence and small front garden.

The internal space is well laid out for family life: the back door leads straight into the family kitchen-diner complete with pantry, lobby, aga and access to the rest of the ground floor. There are two large reception rooms off the entrance hall currently used as traditional lounge and living spaces. There is also a downstairs WC which has a slight step down leading to what was possibly the old cellar!
The front of the property faces the green and has a good-sized porch with space for hats, coats and the wellies!


The first floor is home to three double bedrooms, one ensuite and a family wetroom (which is equipped with accessible facilities);
The balcony is on this floor where the current owners like to sit and watch the world go by on the green. The views are delightful - you can just see the Plough on the Green pub which is a long-standing watering hole used by locals and visitors alike. It's within easy staggering distance, too!
The second floor has the last two double bedrooms and a small bathroom. The rooms are in the roof so there is adequate eaves storage, lovely views again over the green and it's very peaceful up there.



Outside there is a gated back courtyard garden with room to develop your green-fingers with plenty of pots or to use as off-street parking.
There is parking available directly outside the rear gate.


Gas central heating throughout.
Double glazed throughout
Wood burning stoves in two rooms.
Back courtyard garden with shed with electrical supply. Gated and secure.
Accessible wet room


Stroud Green is part of the parish of Greenham in Newbury and lies to the south of the town and is home to the famous Newbury Racecourse. From here you can walk pretty much everywhere easily. It is ideal town living with train station a 5 mintute walk away and easy road links to the A34 and M4. This part of Newbury is very popular because of its history, location and green spaces. Catchment area for Park House secondary school.

The property could also work well as a flat conversion so any investors out there looking to build a rental portfolio should consider this a great opportunity.
