The property is situated to the south of Reading between the villages of Shinfield and Spencers Wood. Junction 11 of the M4 motorway is about five minutes drive away and the M3 motorway is accessible at Basingstoke to the south. Mainline rail services are available at Reading, Basingstoke and Wokingham.
Oakwood is an immediately impressive home, which was commissioned by the current owners and built to a high specification in 1999. It has been subsequently maintained to an excellent standard and is beautifully presented offering very spacious and flexible accommodation.
The property sits in delightful grounds of nearly one and a quarter acres providing a great deal of seclusion and tranquillity combined with the convenience of easy access to road and rail links and the major towns of Reading and Basingstoke.
Access to the grounds is through electrically operated wrought iron gates onto a long driveway leading to a turning circle to the front of the house.
The extensive accommodation is focused on a central open plan living area forming the ‘heart’ of the home. Here, the family room with open fireplace, well equipped contemporary kitchen and spacious breakfast room combine to provide a social hub, which is enhanced by French doors leading outside to the large paved patio and gardens.
An adjoining utility and laundry room also houses a newly installed gas fired boiler.
The formal drawing room has a high vaulted ceiling with a brick built fireplace and leads through to a generous dining room.
An extensive office area is located on the first floor and has lovely views over the gardens.
Four of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor with the impressive master suite having a dressing room and en-suite bathroom with corner bath and walk-in shower. Two further bedrooms have en-suites, whilst two shower rooms serve the three remaining bedrooms. The fifth and sixth bedrooms on the first floor have attractive vaulted ceilings.
Externally, the gardens have been well planned with formal lawns and an extensive ‘wild garden’ created by the renowned designer ‘Peter Simms’. The lawns wrap around the house with a ‘working garden’ to the east side. A deep planted border adjoins the main lawn and close by, a timber arch leads through to the wild garden where pathways meander amongst an abundance of planting framing an ornamental fish pond and paved relaxation and outside dining area. Remotely controlled lighting serves to enhance the gardens in the evening.
A garage block with electrically operated doors has space for three vehicles and a timber clad block-built gardeners store sits alongside. There is also an additional covered log and garden store.
