Spring Cottage is a substantial family home set back from the road and approached via a small lane flanked by the woodland of Bucklebury Common, being within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Originally two cottages, the property has been extended over the years to provide exceptionally spacious accommodation arranged over two floors and comprising the main house with an adjoining cottage. The rooms are of generous proportions with a warm and welcoming feel and a great deal of light filtering through. The arrangement of rooms flows exceptionally well, being ideal for entertaining. A number of reception rooms are found on the ground floor as well as a leisure complex which the current owners have added, comprising a large games room with an indoor putting green, swimming pool, changing rooms, shower room and sauna. The first floor comprises the master bedroom suite with adjoining dressing room and en suite, 2 further double bedrooms, one of which also has an en suite, a family bathroom and a fifth bedroom/den with adjoining sitting room (perfect for a nanny or teenager). The Cottage adjoins the main house and is accessed either through the house or from its separate entrance to outside, thereby providing the opportunity to incorporate it into the main house or to utilise it as secondary accommodation. The Cottage comprises two bedrooms, kitchen/breakfast room, double reception room and bathroom.
Chapel Row is one of the most sought after village locations in the locality, due to its rural, yet extremely convenient position. Local amenities include doctor’s surgery, tea room and interior design shop, whilst nearby Upper Bucklebury has a shop, pub and garage with more comprehensive amenities being found further afield in Newbury and Reading. The area provides opportunities for scenic walks and country pursuits, and access for educational facilities with primary schools nearby, and a range of private schools within the area such as Bradfield College, Brockhurst, Pangbourne College and Downe House. There is good access to the M4 and A34, and mainline rail services to London and the west country are available at Thatcham, Newbury and Reading.
Tucked away from the road down a small lane through Bucklebury Common, Spring Cottage sits well in its plot of about 3 acres. Approached via a drive flanked by wonderful mature rhododendron bushes, there is a lawn to the front of the house and a well established pond, with a gravelled parking area for several cars. The drive continues around the side of the house, with further parking. Boundaries around the gardens are self-evident with mature hedging, shrubbery and trees offering seclusion and a stunning aspect from the house. A natural spring runs under the grounds, which is pumped into the pond. There is a substantial adventure playground / tree house, which together with the tennis court and indoor leisure facilities make this a self sufficient home for a family. Fruit cages and a greenhouse form part of the productive kitchen garden, and there is also a large timber framed garage with store room.
