A beautifully refurbished Grade II Listed home with delightful riverside gardens
The current owners of Shaw Bridge House have undertaken an extensive yet sympathetic refurbishment project creating an outstanding example of a Grade II listed town house. The project has been finished with meticulous attention to detail, maintaining and preserving the history of one of the oldest houses in Newbury.
A welcoming reception hall, with a high ceiling and a tessellated tile floor, gives an appealing first impression and leads to the principle ground floor entertaining rooms. The sitting room and dining room are both full of natural light and feature many of the original features expected in a property of this age including two wonderful fireplaces. The kitchen and utility have recently been updated. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor comprises a master suite with a bathroom and separate shower. There are two further bedrooms served by a bathroom with some wonderful original timber beams.
An important part of the refurbishment project was the addition of the top floor masters suite. A generous master suite occupying the entire third floor has been created with vaulted ceilings, dressing area, reading area and adjoining en suite bathroom which has been beautifully equipped. All bathrooms have high quality antique fittings and are water powered by a modern, hotel quality pressurised water system.
The gardens stretch alongside the river and include several seating areas, a flat lawn, paved terraces, neat gravelled pathways, a delightful secret garden and grape vine draped pergola. The house and gardens are enclosed by mature trees as well as a wall creating a very private position for the house. A large garage, with hard standing in front, provides useful parking.
