Stoke House is a spacious and beautifully presented detached family home, set in a peaceful location just outside the village of Cold Ash, two miles north of the Berkshire market town of Thatcham. The property features five bedrooms, bespoke fittings and attractive décor throughout, while there are also splendid southfacing gardens. On the ground floor there is a wellproportioned, comfortable drawing room, with wood flooring, a fireplace fitted with woodburning stove and elegant, stylish light fittings. Beneath this room there is a modern spiral wine cellar, with the capacity for 1200 wine bottles. There is also a useful study and a light and airy sunroom verlooking the rear gardens, while the heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen, dining room and family room with cabinetry from Neptune design. The area has a part-vaulted ceiling with skylights, and bi-fold doors opening onto the rear gardens. The dining area and family room are separated by a chimney column and dual facing fireplace with a wood burning stove, while the kitchen benefits from wooden units in grey, limestone worktops and a central island, plus a stainless steel range cooker. The ground floor also benefits from underfloor heating throughout, and all floors benefits from multi-zone/separate heating control. There are four double bedrooms on the first floor, including the master with its bespoke and handmade fitted storage/ wardrobes and en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor with a freestanding bathtub and a separate shower unit. On the second floor you will find a fifth double bedroom, which benefits from an en suite shower room.


To the front of the property there is a gravel driveway, which provides plenty of parking space, and access to the detached double garage, which also offers studio space on its first floor. The rear gardens are south-facing and welcome plenty of sunlight throughout the day. There is an area of paved terracing and a shady pergola, plus a good-sized lawn, bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds and a variety of plants, shrubs and hedgerow. At the end of the garden there is a gravel seating area, centred around a small pond.


The property is situated just outside the small village of Cold Ash, two miles north of the bustling market town of Thatcham, and its train station. Cold Ash itself has a village store and post office, plus a local pub. There are two primary schools in the village as well as the popular girls’ school Downe House. Nearby there is an excellent range of independent schools including Brockhurst and Marlston, Bradfield, St Andrews, and Elstree to name a few. The nearby and attractive market town of Newbury has a choice of restaurants and cafés, with excellent shopping, leisure facilities and a choice of supermarkets. Newbury mainline station offers fast and efficient rail services to London Paddington (50 minutes). There are superb road links in the area, with the M3 and M4 both close-at-hand, providing access towards London, the M25, Heathrow airport, and west towards Bristol and the southwest.


Head North on the B4009 out of Newbury, continue to follow the B4009 for just over two miles, before turning right onto Fisher’s Lane. At the junction, turn right onto Hermitage Road, and then after passing the cricket club on your right, turn left onto The Ridge. You will find the entrance to the property on your right-hand side after three quarters of a mile.
