About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Kennet House is a handsome Grade II listed double fronted period property thought to date from the 17th Century with a Victorian addition to the rear. The property sits proudly and prominently in the heart of the village. Grace and charm abound with enviable proportions and some wonderful period features throughout including an inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, which together with the dining room offer elegance and warmth. There is a large sociable kitchen/breakfast room to the rear beyond which is a utility/boot room and a further family room. Two staircases enable the flow of the house to offer versatility, with excellent family accommodation arranged over two floors. The master suite has an ensuite bathroom and a good range of fitted cupboards. There are four further double bedrooms which are served by a bathroom in addition to a shower room. The cellar offers useful storage for a variety of uses including a wine store.

Kennet House sits in the heart of the village of Kintbury, being in a conservation area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of facilities including Post Office/store, butchers, church, school and several pubs. Kintbury sits on the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal and has a train station on the outskirts of the village, with trains to London Paddington taking approximately 1 hour. The location enjoys wonderful surrounding countryside offering a wealth of footpaths and bridleways. The historic market town of Hungerford lies 4 miles to the west and provides a wide range of shops and services. The larger centre of Newbury is 7 miles to the east with both centres providing a train service to London Paddington. The M4 is to the north and can be accessed at Junction 13 or 14. There is a good range of state and private schooling in the area, including St Gabriels, Cheam and Marlborough College.

The property is approached from the High Street via a period tiled pathway to the front door with attractive porch. To the rear is a quite delightful mature cottage garden, which is well stocked with a good area of lawn being flanked by shrubs on both sides along with some hedging which offers a good degree of seclusion and is perfect for families and outdoor entertaining. At the end of the garden is a pretty bricked courtyard area with electric wooden gates which provides parking for a number of cars. Planning permission exists to erect a two storey timber framed three bay garage.
