A once in a lifetime opportunity.
The Newbury Office of Winkworth is bringing this pretty lodge house to the market for the first time in around 60 years. Built in 1894 and formerly the lodge to Inglewood House and Estate, which was broken up and sold off in 1928, the cottage occupies a plot of in excess of half an acre and is surrounded by open fields and woodland.
The nearest neighbour is over 300m away and the plot affords total privacy, peace and quiet with no main road noise. The centre of the village of Kintbury is just over half a mile and has a main line railway station to (London Paddington) with trains taking around an hour. Kintbury is regularly featured in The Telegraph's top ten villages in England, with its delightful mix of period and modern homes, situated on the banks of the Kennet and Avon canal.
The village retains many of its facilities including a post office and shop, butchers and several pubs, one being right on the banks of the canal. There is also a Church and primary school.
The cottage sits nicely within its plot which is level, mostly laid to lawn and with lovely views across parkland to Inglewood House.
There is the opportunity to either modernise and extend the existing cottage or redevelop the house of your dreams (Subject to consents). Currently the accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and three first floor bedrooms.
There is a detached double garage and brick outbuilding within the grounds.
Ian Haines, a director at Winkworth's Newbury office said, "This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a unique plot, with no near neighbours and yet only half a mile from arguably one of the best villages in England".
