Full description

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  A Grade II Listed house believed to date from about 1845 with ashlar elevations beneath a slate roof.  The elevations include 2-storey angled bays, entrance with gables above, and a gabled porch to the west.  The building is to an extent dominated at the front by the Church of the Holy Trinity and to one side by the more recently built Oddfellows community building.  The accommodation is set over two and a half floors and was converted to flats during the 1950s.  Two of the tenants are Protected Tenants whilst the other two flats are occupied by tenants with Assured Shorthold Agreements and therefore vacant possession can be anticipated if required of part of the property


 


The property has a relatively narrow frontage to Oxford Road but a long return frontage to Trinity Place from which there is also vehicular access.  The property is just outside of the IDR but within about 0.25 miles of the main shopping area and about 0.5 miles from the railway station.  Reading is one of the most important towns outside of London owing to its strategic location and continues to see growth in most sectors.  There are 3 access points to the M4 (J10, J11, J12) which provides direct access to Heathrow Airport, M25 and Central London, and good access also to the M40, M1 and Gatwick Airport. Crossrail comes to Reading shortly.

Outside/Planning:


There is a Basement with its own independent access that subject to planning permission, Listed building consent and building regulation approval could provide an additional two flats.  No enquiries have been made of the local authority.


 


The Gardens  The gardens are generally open although Flat 1 has for many years enjoyed exclusive use of a small area.  There is a pathway from Oxford Road lined by low level privet box hedging.  There is a return frontage to Trinity Place which includes an extensive Listed wall – there is vehicular access from Trinity Place for one off-road car parking space.


 


SERVICES:  All mains services are available.


 


TENURE:  Freehold, part available with vacant possession / part subject to Statutory Protected tenancies.  The tenant in Flat 1 has been in occupation since 1963 and the tenant of Flat 3 since 1974.  Both tenants are Statutory Protected tenants.  The current owners have not applied for a registered rent.  It will therefore be an opportunity for the purchaser to apply for First Registration.  The tenants of Flats 2 and 4 occupy as Assured Shorthold tenants, in both cases at rents below market value. This information was correct on 02/01/2018. We will announce any changes should they occur.
