Cranbrook House is a fine example of a substantial detached town house from the late Victorian / early Edwardian era. Set back with a driveway that fits up to 8 cars from the road in a 0.3 acre plot, this property offers flexible family living with further potential to add both reception and bedroom accommodation subject the usual planning consents. On approaching this property you are welcomed by a grand portico with traditional stained glass and floor tiling. The front door opens into a lovely light and generous hallway off which the sweeping staircase leads, giving the entrance a double height ceiling. The original tiling has been thoughtfully restored leading from the portico through the property off which all the rooms are accessed. On the ground floor there is a huge L-shaped, triple aspect, dual access kitchen/family room running front to back of the house with lovely bespoke cream units and granite work surfaces. There are also two large cupboards either side of the first entrance to the kitchen, one being the utility area and the other a larder/pantry. A door opens out to the larger than average garden creating a light and airy feel. At the back of the property there is a WC and a lovely playroom/study, with French doors into the garden. A large patio area connects this room to the kitchen. To the front of the property is the double reception room with dual aspect bay windows which let in a plethora of light; to one end is a working fireplace. Original features are in abundance which contrasts beautifully with the contemporary Farrow and Ball wall colours throughout. Upstairs the high ceilings and period features continue with four large double bedrooms, generous family bathroom with separate double shower; this was originally two bathrooms as well as a seperate WC. There are FIVE loft spaces in total which subject to the usual planning consents can be transformed into further bedrooms and bathrooms. Architect drawings have previously been commissioned and the next door property has set a precedent.
Cranbrook House is conveniently located in Howard Road, within walking distance of both the town centre and the railway station. Local facilities are close by and the property is well placed for both primary and secondary schooling. Newbury offers excellent access to the road network with the A34 and the M4 (Junction 13) both within easy reach plus a railway station with regular connections to London Paddington. The town itself offers good shopping and recreational facilities, whilst the surrounding countryside offers some glorious walks and country pubs, including many along the Kennet and Avon canal which passes through the town.
Approached by one of the two entrance ways, Cranbrook House is set back from the road by a parking area and a large hedge. The driveway and side return to the right of the property provides parking for plenty of cars as does the space at the front. There is also a separate graveled road running the whole way along the side of the property leading to a timber garage at the bottom of the garden. The rear garden has been landscaped and is mainly laid to lawn with beautiful borders and mature shrubs, there is also a fish pond placed centrally within the plots. Running the whole way along the back of the property is a pretty patio perfect for entertaining and a great sun-trap. At the other end of the garden a children’s play area has been laid with soft ground and a two story Wendy house under the cover of the most beautiful copper beech. At this end there is also the timber garage and side entrance.
