A picturesque country cottage, with potential in a quiet rural setting

Periwinkle Cottage is a charming period property, set in a peaceful location four miles south of Newbury. The property has one bedroom and three reception rooms, and requires some modernisation throughout, offering the potential for renovation or further development to create a thoroughly pleasant home. The cottage features red brick and tiled elevations, with a storm porch at the front entrance. You enter into the drawing room, with its fireplace and built-in storage, while a door leads to the dining room, which connects to a cosy dual aspect sitting room. There is a kitchen fitted with wooden units and worktops, as well as a range cooker and space for all of the necessary appliances. To the rear there is an entrance hall, with a door leading to the gardens, which could be used as a boot room or a utility room. Upstairs there is one double bedroom, with fitted storage and a cast-iron fireplace. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor, plus a useful cloakroom on the ground floor.


To the front of the property there is a driveway, which leads to a detached single garage. There are gardens to the front and rear, which require some work but offer the potential to become delightful, peaceful country gardens, with rolling lawns and a variety of shrubs, trees and hedgerow. The gardens to the rear back onto open fields and woodland.


The property is set in a rural location just outside the small village of Burghclere, four miles south of Newbury. The village has a local pub and a village hall, as well as several schools, including Burghclere Primary School, The Clere School for secondary, as well as the independent St. Michael’s School. Further afield there is an even wider choice of schools available: Cheam, Horris Hill, St Bartholomews, and St Helens to name a few. Local amenities can be found in the bustling market town of Newbury, with its excellent choice of shopping in its vibrant town centre, as well as a number of supermarkets and leisure facilities. Newbury mainline station, four and a half miles away, offers services to London Paddington (51 minutes), while the A34 is within easy reach, providing access towards the M4, just nine miles away.


From Newbury town centre, head west on Oxford Road, Western Avenue and Bath Road, joining the A34 heading south. Follow the A34 for four and a half miles before taking the exit for the B4640 towards Newtown/Burghclere. At the roundabout, take the second exit onto Winchester Road and then at the junction with Hart’s Lane, turn right. Turn left after a quarter of a mile onto West Street and continue for a further quarter of a mile, after which you will find the property on your left-hand side.
