Tenure: Freehold

This outstanding 1920’s character house, with a west facing garden of over 200ft, has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and retains many period features including open fires, picture rails and restored floorboards. The property is set back from the road by a large driveway and offers scope for extension with architect plans drawn for a vaulted extension across the rear, creating a large open plan kitchen/family/dining room. No chain.

The Property
A covered porch leads to an elegant reception hall with refurbished solid wood flooring and a staircase rising to the first floor, original doors lead too all rooms. The stylish living room retains character with a bay window and picture rail whilst the focal point of the room is a multi- fuel stove and granite hearth. Data points here, and in the dining room and all bedrooms, connect back to a bespoke handmade cupboard in the hallway. The dining room, again with picture rail, has French doors leading out to the large garden, refurbished solid wood flooring and an open fireplace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a kitchen, which has not been refitted and offers scope to improve or extend. Architect plans have been drawn for a vaulted extension across the rear, to create a large open plan kitchen/family/dining room.

From the landing on the first floor, original doors offer access to all three bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has an original fireplace, as does the second bedroom, and has two bespoke handmade double wardrobes. Both the second and third bedroom overlook the large garden and woodland beyond. The bathroom has been refitted with a stylish white suite including a digital Aqualisa shower and bath filling system, is fully tilled and has a dual fuel towel radiator.

The west facing garden extends over 200ft and backs onto woodland. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with several apple trees and various shrubs and borders. There is a patio area immediately behind the house and storage shed. The front garden of approximately 45ft provides ample parking for 3 vehicles and is enclosed with mature hedgerow and fencing. A wide path leads to the rear garden.

The property is situated on the borders of Wokingham and Finchampstead. There is a wide choice of independent and state schools locally. The village of Finchampstead provides for everyday needs whilst the larger centres of Wokingham (1.5miles) and Reading are easily accessible and offer a comprehensive range of shopping, business and recreational facilities.
