Newbury, 02 July 2012, In musicals, West Side Story is a big one to watch. But in the Newbury property world, the south side is very much where families want to be.
There’s a wealth of good schools, easy access to the town centre, and a direct connection to the A34 Newbury by-pass, and from there the major roads network, as well as beautiful countryside.
So when a property such as one that has just become available in Dormer Close, off Andover Road, hits the market then it will spark plenty of interest.
The house is set in a quiet cul-de-sac within the catchment of Falkland Primary School, considered to be the best primary school in the town, as well as within easy access of a range of independent schools.
This individual detached property has been extended to provide spacious family accommodation with a light and open plan feel on the ground floor and five good bedrooms upstairs. There is a large entrance hall, to one side of which is a sitting room with double doors into the dining / family room. This is a very light space with a large window and French doors overlooking the garden and also provides an open plan link to both the study – which is of sufficient size to be a home office or playroom - and kitchen / breakfast room. The latter is a real feature of the house, set in defined areas with two sets of French doors to the garden.
Upstairs, the galleried landing forms a very light, central space with rooms radiating on three sides. The main bedroom, to the rear, has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Four good sized bedrooms and a large family bathroom with both bath and shower complete the accommodation.
The house is approached via a drive with parking for several cars as well as access to the larger than average garage. The rear garden is a level and fully enclosed level garden with a paved terrace immediately behind the house creating a sheltered and private seating area beyond which there is a level lawn with a border containing a number of shrubs and plants.
