Castle House is a magnificent Grade II Listed Georgian mansion built originally circa 1770 and converted into apartments in the 1980s. Number 6 is the largest apartment, located on the ground floor and boasting wonderful proportions which are typical of the period, with large sash windows and high ceilings throughout which enhance the natural light. The drawing room is simply stunning with ample space for a dining table, and featuring a beautiful fireplace with gas fire. The room is dual aspect and overlooks both the front of the property and its own private patio to the side. There are two double bedrooms, the master being an impressive 24' in length, featuring a wide triple aspect bay window. The kitchen has been completely refitted within the last three years to a very high standard with fully integrated appliances including an induction hob and gas oven.
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. Newbury Station provides access to London Paddington in under an hour. 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.
Castle House is set back from the road, with a large gravelled area to the front with visitors' parking. Flat 6 is unique in that it has the advantage of its own entrance to the side of the property via its own patio garden. To the rear is a garage, accessed from the adjoining lane, plus there is an additional allocated parking space to the front. A well tended communal garden is located at the rear of the property, which is laid to lawn with a central paved footpath and is for the benefit of all the residents.
The large basement provides communal storage (ideal for storing large items / bicycles etc.).
