A fresh, bright contemporary family home in the attractive sought after village of Kingsclere. Having been recently extended and renovated, the house is finished to a high standard.
The heart of the home is the contemporary open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Recently built and decorated, this fresh, bright room is practical for everyday life, and ideal for entertaining with room to accommodate up to 20 at the table. There is direct access to the garden from this triple aspect room.
The double aspect sitting room features a fireplace and patio doors on to the garden. The office/play room and laundry room complete the ground floor.
The recently built master suite includes a large double room, dressing area and en-suite bathroom. There are two additional comfortable double bedrooms and two smaller double bedrooms, along with a modern family bathroom with bath and separate shower.
The garden wraps around two sides of the house. Mostly laid to lawn, there are two patio areas, a summer house and fenced pond area for nature lovers. There’s enough space for children to play and explore, along with entertaining space for warm days.
I bought the house for its location, Kingsclere is very relaxing, there are no traffic jams and it’s safe and friendly. I have a stressful job so it’s important to me to have a calm place to unwind and spend quality time with the kids, coming home here does that.
The house was dated so I extended and renovated it adding the new kitchen. I had fourteen people over on Christmas Day and the room worked perfectly, it’s exactly the sort of family space I wanted to achieve. Throughout the house there’s now enough space to play with the kids, and be away from each other when we want our own space.
Outside the garden pond is our favourite spot. I sit there after work to wind down and the kids love it, they’re so curious about everything they see. I’ve learned more about dragonflies and butterflies than I ever thought I would!
On weekends we spend most of our time in the village. There’s a playground at the end of the road and the boys’ football team meets just around the corner. There are four pubs, a couple are good for families and the others are good for a night out with friends.
The walks around here are fantastic – Watership Down was written about this area so you can imagine the views. We love spending time outside, and this couldn’t be a better place for it.
Kingsclere epitomises English village life, with a pretty Georgian high street featuring a butcher, cafe, restaurants and country pubs.
Watership Down was written in and about Kingsclere and the countryside surrounding the village remains unspoilt with beautiful views and walks.
Safe, friendly and traffic free, Kingsclere has all essential services and plenty of activities for families and nature lovers. The village hosts regular events such as cinema in the village hall, theatre with a picnic and Guy Fawkes fireworks. The tennis courts are available for all to use and there is a strong sense of community for all to enjoy.
