A Grade II Listed period property situated within a Conservation Area; a hidden gem tucked behind hedging opposite the grounds of Shaw House. The property was formerly part of Shaw Rectory which some years ago was divided into 3 dwellings and now is a home of character adapted for modern day living. The ground floor has an entrance hall which leads to the principal rooms. The drawing room is an elegant room with a fireplace with wood burning stove and a bay window with doors to the courtyard garden, as does the adjoining garden/dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with ample space for dining.
On the first floor is an exceptional master bedroom with a wonderful bay window with views over gardens and the River Lambourn beyond. In addition to the well-appointed ensuite shower room there is a dressing area, the perfect vantage point to admire the grounds. Two further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom whilst on the top floor there is a study and a further studio/loft room.
Church Road is a quiet No Through Road in Shaw, opposite the grounds of Shaw House and situated just on the north side of town. The extensive amenities of Newbury town are within convenient reach. Newbury offers a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants to include the Parkway shopping centre. The town is dissected by the Kennet and Avon canal offering lovely walking and also offers a great day out at the Newbury Racecourse. The town offers mainline rail services in under an hour to London Paddington and good road links including the M4 and A34, with regular buses into town.
