Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Elms is a handsome red-brick Grade II Listed property, set in a convenient yet rural setting. Thought to date originally from the 1840s, the property provides more than 3,000 square feet of elegant accommodation arranged over two floors. The four ground-floor reception rooms are all of similar proportions, with the family room, sitting room and dining room all featuring exposed timber floorboards, with large sash windows in each room welcoming plenty of natural light, and fireplaces, including open fireplaces and stoves. The drawing room leads via double doors to a garden room with access to the side aspect. Towards the rear of the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen and dining area, with wooden parquet flooring, a variety of units to base and wall level and a range cooker. From here bifold doors lead out onto a south facing block paved patio.

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms with the principal bedroom having its own en suite shower room. There is also a spacious family bathroom as well as a further shower room at this level. Four of the bedrooms have charming feature fireplaces.
Planning permission (Ref. 122228) was granted in 2012 to demolish the existing garden room and add an elegant ground floor extension comprising two reception rooms. The work was never carried out. However, prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries with Wokingham Council if they wish to reinstate it.

The property is set in the semi-rural, yet conveniently located village of Grazeley. The village has a primary school and a village hall, while everyday amenities can be found in neighbouring villages, including Spencers Wood, which has several shops, including a
post office, and a primary school, or Stratfield Mortimer and Mortimer Common, which have a choice of shops, a pharmacy, a library and an infant and junior school. The bustling university town of Reading is just five miles away, with its excellent selection of shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities, as well as an excellent choice of both state and independent schooling. The M4 is within two miles, providing access towards London and the M25, and the west country, while Reading’s mainline station provides fast and regular services to London Paddington (28 minutes). Additionally, Mortimer station provides services to London Paddington, changing at Reading West (45 minutes).

To the side of the house, the gravel driveway provides access to the garage and a spacious parking area for several vehicles. The attractive garden is mostly laid to lawn, with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and hedgerow, as well as a pretty ornamental stream (man-made, and powered by a pump) running through the garden, making for a peaceful, idyllic setting.
