Castle House is a splendid Grade II Listed Georgian mansion built originally circa 1770 and converted into apartments in the 1980s. Number 2 is located on the ground floor and features a beautifully proportioned drawing room with large Georgian windows overlooking the front aspect. The two double bedrooms are located to the rear of the apartment, with windows and lovely views over the rear communal garden. In addition, there is a bathroom with white suite and tiling and a fully fitted kitchen. The apartment has a certain elegance to it withwonderful high ceilings, typical of the period.
Castle House is on the northern side of Newbury town and offers access to rail and road communication routes including the M4 motorway (junction 13) via the A34 Newbury bypass.

The town boasts excellent shopping facilities including the Parkway shopping mall, its own theatre and cinema, a choice of restaurants and the Kennet and Avon canal runs through the heart of the town. The apartment is conveniently placed for Waitrose and other local amenities, with a direct walk to the centre of the town via Goldwell Park opposite the property.
