Whistley Green Cottage is a beautiful detached home with painted elevations under a clay tile. It is believed to date from the late 17th century and has been extended over the years. It now offers spacious family accommodation which is full of character as many original features have been retained including exposed wall and ceiling timbers and large open fireplaces. It sits well within its plot and has wonderful views over the fields to the rear of the property.

The main reception room has underfloor heating and is divided into flexible seating areas currently arranged to provide a cosy snug with open fireplace with brick surround and a sitting room for relaxing with the TV. This opens to the wonderful Amdega conservatory which is light and airy overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The family room has a feature fireplace and built-in cupboard and off this room is the study with a view over the garden and a range of built-in furniture including desk, bookshelves and cupboards.

The delightful dining room has flagstone flooring, an open fireplace and double doors to the garden terrace. The kitchen and breakfast room is double aspect and has flagstone flooring and a range of bespoke painted wall and floor units with Silestone work surfaces. Built-in appliances include a Falcon cooker with extractor over, dishwasher, larder fridge and freezer. There is a spacious utility room with washing machine and built in dryer. Off this is a cloakroom and boiler room and a stable door opens to the charming side courtyard garden.

The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed wall and ceiling timbers, doors to a balcony taking full advantage of the view, built-in wardrobes and a door to the well-appointed Jack and Jill bathroom. The guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom and interior balcony with views over the garden and fields. There are three further bedrooms, one with doors to the balcony with views over the garden and fields. There is also a family bathroom.

Whistley Green Cottage sits well in its plot and is accessed via a sweeping gravel drive which leads to a large parking area for several cars to the front of the house and detached double garage. The front garden is private with a high evergreen hedge to the front boundary. It is laid mainly to lawn with a mature pond to one side and throughout is planted with a variety of shrubs and trees including willow and apple. The rear garden is accessed from the conservatory and dining room and offers views over the surrounding fields. There is a terrace to one side providing the perfect place for al fresco dining and enjoying the wonderful view.

NB: The vendors have informed us that they intend to build a family home for themselves on the retained paddock land adjacent to the property. Informal enquiries with Wokingham Borough Council indicate that the adjoining farmland has been proposed for assessment under the local plan update process. We believe an initial decision will be made around summertime. Please enquire for further details.
