Court Farm Stables is a charming family home with heaps of character. It is situated in a peaceful, rural location on the edge of Newtown Common, but within three miles of the plentiful amenities of Newbury town centre. An additional two bedroom cottage in the grounds provides flexible ancillary accommodation, perfect for guests, homeworking, rental income or multi-generational living.

The property is approached via a shared driveway and entered via a five bar gate to a lawned front garden and gravelled parking area. A large, multi-car garage is found next to the house, which could be converted into further accommodation subject to planning.

On the ground floor, a cosy sitting room is accessed from the entrance hall, complete with log burning stove and beautiful original beams. A second reception room is used as a home office by the current owners but could also be opened into the sitting room to make a larger living area. There is an orangery on the back of the house, which is currently utilised as a formal dining room, fantastic for entertaining, with oak beams and full length windows. All the downstairs reception rooms benefit from masses of natural light pouring through from the orangery. The large country kitchen/dining room is the heart of the home, with dual aspect windows, double doors to the front garden, a traditional Aga, island unit and beautiful wooden worktops. A separate pantry, utility and useful boot room are all accessed from the kitchen, with access to the courtyard and stables from the boot room.

The first floor provides five good sized double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room, and the additional charming feature of a Juliette balcony that overlooks the courtyard with views to the stables. Two family bathrooms service the other four bedrooms.

Behind the house a gravelled courtyard is flanked by the guest cottage and stables to your left, and a large tithe barn to the rear. This barn has full planning permission to convert into a four bedroom character property.

The cottage provides two double bedrooms, a large reception room with log burner, kitchen diner, bathroom and WC. The cottage is tastefully decorated to compliment the main house.

The equestrian facilities include five stables, a double tack/feed room and a large 25x45m arena with a rubber mix surface and lighting. The arena surface has been renewed in recent times and is in good condition.
Fenced paddocks with water lie to the back of the property, behind the arena and provide excellent grazing. There is hacking directly from the house onto the Common. There is plenty of scope to add more stables subject to planning permission. The land extends to approximately 7.5 acres in total, to include a small area of woodland beyond the paddocks.

Nearby Newbury town provides a wide variety of shopping and dining opportunities. The area is well served by many good state and independent schools including St Bartholomew's, Horris Hill, Downe House, Thorngrove, Cheam and St Gabriel's.

The property is well placed for commuters, with trains from Newbury to Paddington in around 50 minutes. The A34 provides fast access north and south to the M4, A303 and M3.
