A CHARMING Edwardian semi-detached home, with an abundance of CHARACTER FEATURES and located in a PRESTIGIOUS RESIDENTIAL AREA just 10-minutes' walk to Newbury town centre and railway station. Benefits include a private, GENEROUS GARDEN and potential to extend and convert the loft (STPP).

DESCRIPTION
This beautiful Edwardian semi-detached home, built in the early 1900's, is full of charm and character and has lots of potential to extend, as well as convert the loft (STPP) – as both nearest neighbours have done. On the ground floor, accommodation comprises the original front door with stained glass and the original Edwardian doorbell, leading into the entrance hallway with tiled flooring and a beautiful archway detail on the ceiling. Off the hallway, at the front of the house, is the living room which has picture rails, treated original floorboards, a bespoke fitted unit, a feature fireplace with the original fireplace surround and a bay window. Off the hallway, at the rear of the house, is the dining room, which is carpeted and has picture rails, bespoke fitted units and cupboards, a feature fireplace and an original sash window. The dining room leads into the kitchen/breakfast room which has tiled flooring and an original sash window. The kitchen has fitted cream units with granite worktops, an integrated double oven, gas hob and dishwasher, and there is a door providing access onto the rear garden. The kitchen leads into the utility room and cloakroom, which both have tiled flooring. On the first floor, all rooms are carpeted apart from the bathrooms (which are tiled). Accommodation includes a spacious landing with two loft hatches, a generous master bedroom with picture rails and beautiful original detail in the coving, as well as a feature bay window and an en-suite shower room, with a heated towel rail. There is a second double bedroom with two stripped pine double fitted wardrobes, picture rails and an original sash window, a third single bedroom (which is currently being used as a study), and the family bathroom which has a shower over the bath and a heated towel rail, with a separate WC.

OUTSIDE
The property is approached by a lawned front garden, with a footpath leading to the covered porch over the property entrance. The front garden is centred with a picturesque Acer tree, providing privacy and a lovely view from the front room. The curb at the front of the house has been dropped, so you could easily create a driveway if preferred. Side access leads to the generous rear garden where there is a patio area immediately outside the property – a great place to sit and enjoy the sun! Steps lead down to the remainder of the garden, stretching approximately 80 ft., which is predominantly laid to lawn with various plants, trees and shrubs.

SERVICES
All mains services are connected. The property operates on gas-fired central heating and the boiler, water tank and shower pump have been replaced in the last 8 years. The roof of the property was replaced in 2014.

PUBLIC NOTICE
In accordance with the Estate Agency Act 1979 we hereby give notice that one of the vendors of this property is a family member of an employee of Jones Robinson Estate Agents Limited.

Porchester Road is a cul-de-sac and is a highly sought-after residential road, located less than a mile to the south of Newbury town centre and railway station, meaning that all shops and amenities are just a short walk away. Well-regarded local primary schools and St. Bartholomew's secondary school (rated outstanding in the latest Ofsted inspection) are also within walking distance. As well as being home to Newbury Racecourse, the town itself offers a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities. Newbury is the headquarters of Vodafone UK and offers a railway station on the direct line to London Paddington (fast train to Paddington has an approx. travel time of 41 minutes). There are also excellent road links via the A34 and M4 motorway, a convenient commute for those working in Reading, Oxford and Southampton.
