A period four-bedroom family house in the heart of Newbury in need of modernisation

Foscote Lodge is a handsome detached property with many character features including tall chimneystacks and original sash windows. Inside the accommodation is flexible and comfortable, and although the décor could benefit from some modernisation throughout, each room is light and airy, with elegant original features that offer plenty of potential. The ground floor has the family room to the front, and the drawing room to the rear, both of which provide splendid living space for relaxing as a family or entertaining guests. There is also a study and a formal dining room, while the kitchen and an adjoining utility room sit to the rear. The groundfloor is finished with a shower room.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, including a generous principal bedroom. Three of the bedrooms have washbasins, providing the possibility for installing an en suite bathroom or shower room if required. The family bathroom and a dressing room can be found off the landing.

Outside

To the front of the property, wooden gates open onto a gravel driveway, which provides parking for several vehicles. The garden wraps around the house on three sides, which is mostly laid to lawn, border with flowerbeds and a variety of mature trees and established hedgerow and shrubs. At the foot of the garden is further off road parking for one vehicle and providing access to garage.

Foscote Lodge is in need of modernisation. There is also potential to develop the site further and possibly build another property in the garden. This would be subject to the usual planning permissions and any interested parties should make their own enquiries into this.

Situation

The property is located close to the centre of the historic and highly sought-after market town of Newbury. There is an excellent choice of shopping, with the likes of Waitrose, and Marks and Spencers located within walking distance from the property as well as numerous pubs, restaurants and leisure facilities nearby, including the famous Racecourse and several golf courses.

The town is surrounded by beautiful countryside, offering wonderful walking and riding opportunities, along with all the advantages rural outdoor space have to offer. It provides direct access to fast transport links for the commuter. London is easily accessible from the town’s mainline station, with direct services to London Paddington taking less than an hour, while the M4 and A34 are just a short drive away.

The town and area surrounding is home to many good schools, including Cheam, Downe House, Elstree, Thorngrove, Brockhurst and Marlston, Horris Hill and St. Gabriel’s, amongst many more. There are the local primary schools of Robert Sandilands, The Winchcombe and Speenhamland, as well as Trinity School for secondary school education.
