Full description

Tenure: Freehold

GENERAL DESCRIPTION This historic grade II listed detached cottage dates from the late 16th century, being, to quote Historic England, "timber framed with painted render infill and an old tile gabled roof". Inside there are many character features such as exposed beams, stripped wood floors and original fireplaces. 



On the ground floor there are two reception rooms, kitchen and utility room. The first floor consists of 3 bedrooms and bathroom, and another 'bonus' room on the second floor could have a number of potential uses including as a further bedroom.

Additional accommodation at this property is a two bedroom annexe. This is located above a double garage incorporating additional workshop/storage space.

To the rear of the property is a large garden with a southerly orientation primarily of lawn with some mature trees and shrubs. To the front there is driveway parking for several vehicles.

This historic property close to Wokingham town centre is in need of modernisation with tremendous potential and is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with Traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase - see the Auctioneers Comments below.  

GENERAL With over 3000 sq ft this traditional house offers a large traditional residence, with plenty of parking at the front, garage and separate self-contained flat. There is a large garden to the rear, which is laid to law mostly, with trees, mature and private. All this very close to the town centre of Wokingham and a stone's throw from the station.

The property does require modernisation and is Grade II listed, meaning that redecoration of the façade of the house has to be agreed. However, the garage and the 2-bedroom self-contained flat are excluded from this requirement, because these two are not listed.

AUCTIONEERS COMMENTS This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with Traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 3.5% subject to a minimum of £5,000 plus VAT which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The buyer will be required to sign an Acknowledgement of Reservation form to confirm acceptance of terms prior to solicitors being instructed. Copies of the Reservation form and all terms and conditions can be found in the Legal Pack which can be downloaded for free from the auction section of our website or requested from our Auction Department.

Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the Starting Bid. Both the Starting Bid and Reserve Price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by South East Property Auction powered by iam-sold Ltd.
