An attractive detached individual house situated in a rural location on the western side of Newbury providing excellent accommodation together with a very useful large outbuilding and established garden of approximately 0.63 acres and adjoining open countryside.

Prospect Cottage is a handsome traditional West Berkshire property that was originally part of the Sutton Estate and although it has retained much of its original charm and character it now offers interesting and ample accommodation. The property has been well maintained by the present vendors and is in good order throughout and also provides flexible accommodation as there is a ground floor bedroom in addition to the 3 first floor bedrooms and upstairs study. A particular feature of the property is the open plan kitchen/breakfast room which leads into a garden room with two walls of glass and French doors providing direct access to an attractive covered terrace, as well as being linked to the dining room in an open plan layout. All this space works very well for modern day family living. In addition there is a large and very useful utility. On entering the house there is a small lobby which opens into a reception hall with wood burning stove, there is a very cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and a good sized family room which is double aspect with French doors to the garden. The ground floor is completed with a separate guest cloakroom and a ground floor bedroom and en suite. The property has two staircases with the main staircase leading from the reception hall to a landing with a large airing cupboard and access to the master bedroom which has a walk in dressing area and good sized en suite. From this landing there is the fourth bedroom and family bathroom. The second staircase, which leads from the family room, enters a first floor study/office from which there is an attractive view over the garden. This space can also be used as a dressing room for the adjoining bedroom which also has an en suite and two under eaves storage areas.

Prospect Cottage is approached through a pair of gates beyond which is a large gravel drive providing ample private parking, access to the garage and a good turning area. The detached garage building, which is in very good order, provides excellent space that can be used in a variety of ways. Currently there is a double garage, an adjoining car port/garage and then a building which is used as a gym, workshop/studio beyond which is a useful workshop/garden store. This building can be used in a variety of different ways and it would be very easy to convert some of the space to provide additional annexe accommodation if required. The garden at Prospect Cottage is an attractive feature, it is enclosed by a mature hedge, dog proof and very private. It adjoins open fields to one side which belongs to Sutton Estates and has been landscaped so there is a sheltered and private covered terrace to the rear of the house which has a south west aspect so it gets plenty of sun and is a perfect spot for outside entertaining. Beyond the terrace there is a large area of level lawn with a central bed containing shrubs and plants, there is an additional summer house and in all the garden measures 0.63 acres.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
