Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Red Wood is a beautifully presented, individual family home situated in a rural location, set within a plot of approximately 1 acre, with a separate office/games room, paddock area and stables. The property has been significantly improved by the current owners to a high standard throughout and has flexible family living space over 2 floors. Situated in Arborfield Cross and surrounded by fields, the property has the added benefits of air conditioning, solar water heating and multimedia cabling throughout.

Upon entering the property there is a spacious entrance hall with oak parquet flooring giving access to all rooms, including a cloakroom, separate ground floor shower room and coats cupboard. To the front there is a good sized study and a double bedroom which could be used as an additional reception room. There is a wonderful split level lounge with dual aspect and integral wood burning stove; a family room with access to a covered patio area overlooking the rear garden, which could also be used as another bedroom; a large dual aspect kitchen/dining room with English Rose maple cabinets and granite work surfaces and access to the triple garage and utility room. Double glazed French doors from the kitchen give access to an elevated hardwood deck spanning the rear of the property.

A beautiful oak staircase gives access to a spacious galleried landing on the first floor with a Velux roof light, leading to three double bedrooms which all benefit from extensive deep fitted wardrobes. The front bedrooms have views over fields and the rear bedroom views over the formal garden. There is a beautifully appointed en suite to the master bedroom and a large family bathroom with bath and shower.

Outside, to the front there is a large lawn area and extensive shingled parking area which are well screened from the road by mature trees and hedging. A five-bar gate to the side of the property gives pedestrian and vehicular access to the rear gardens. There is a formal area of lawn directly behind the property with mature trees and hedging throughout which offers a high degree of seclusion. The garden extends behind the neighbouring properties to a mature vegetable patch with greenhouse and then to a paddock area with two stables. There is also a large outbuilding with heating, light, telephone, broadband and power. This superb additional space is currently used as a home office/games room and would suit a variety of other purposes.

The property is situated in a quiet location, but within easy reach of both Reading and Wokingham town centres by car or bus and has good links to both the M3 and M4 motorways. There is mainline railway access to Reading, London Waterloo and Gatwick Airport from Wokingham and to London Paddington, the West and the North from Reading. A number of excellent schools, both state and private, are within the local area.
