Full description

Tenure: Freehold



A rare opportunity to purchase one of finest period homes in Caversham; set on a tree-lined road and sitting on an extremely generous plot, the house has been extended to offer almost 3,000 square feet of accommodation plus a substantial unconverted loft with great potential to create further living space. This property is offered to the market for only the second time since it was built in 1937.

Approached by an ‘in and out’ gravel driveway, a large open reception hall gives access to the kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room, cloakroom, wc and the rear garden. The dual aspect sitting room has an open fireplace and double doors to the loggia and garden. The sitting room also provides access to the family room/office.

A fitted kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke painted wooden units, a range of appliances and granite worktops looks directly over the rear garden. The kitchen has double doors that open into a large dining room with a feature bay window; a perfect space for entertaining. From the kitchen there is also a matching utility room with a vaulted ceiling and a further door to the garden.

A return flight staircase from the entrance hall leads to the first floor landing, which provides direct access to all six bedrooms and the two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a lovely bay window and an en suite shower room, giving a total of three bathrooms to complement the bedroom space.

Drop-down steps provide access from the landing to a large loft, which has windows, has been partly boarded and extends over the footprint of the house. The loft provides a considerable storage area and, subject to the relevant planning/building consent, this space could further enhance the already sizeable accommodation.

To the front of the property, the driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and there is a generous integral garage. Side access leads to the rear garden which is meticulously maintained with a vast area of lawn, complemented by a sunken pond, mature trees and shrubs and planted borders. The garden offers an area separated for play equipment and includes a summer house and shed. It enjoys a sunny aspect and offers a high degree of seclusion. To the sides of the house there is covered storage for coal and wood, bin storage access to the rear.

This fine home retains a wealth of charm and character whilst being situated within easy reach of both Caversham and Reading centre, including the recently redeveloped Reading mainline train station with its direct line to London Paddington. It also benefits from being on the edge of South Oxfordshire countryside.
