Springwood, Bucklebury AlleyAbout this home
Springwood is a contemporary, substantial house of almost 3,700 sq. ft. The property was designed by Robert Adam Architects and was constructed in 2001 yet has the feel of a period property with good ceiling heights and natural light. The reception rooms are of good scale and the accommodation throughout is well proportioned. The reception rooms allow a real flexibility as to how they could be used whilst the split level, large kitchen/family room is the very heart of the house. Many of the bedrooms are double aspect, with views onto the surrounding pretty gardens and the woodland beyond.
Everything here is about scale, and the gardens & woodland of over an acre are mostly laid to lawn, interspersed with established flowerbeds.
The property is secluded and is located on the edge of Cold Ash. The popular Kennet side town of Newbury is about two miles away. The location of the property is also well placed for Reading, Oxford and London.
