Full description

" Some weekday evenings are available for viewings "

One of only nine houses in Farnsfield Close, it was built in the mid-1980s; the house is an extended Bovis Balmoral, it has four bedrooms, an integral garage, it has a drive to the front with parking space for two cars. To the rear is a south-facing garden, extensively landscaped and containing mature trees, shrubs and flowerbeds.

The changes made to the property include a fireplace in the lounge, the dining room is doubled in size, the kitchen has trebled in size, the original utility room is now an office/study, the family bathroom and Master en-suite are both much larger; there is a cast iron roll top bath in the bathroom. Other enhancements have replaced all the windows (double glazed) and external doors, a new gas boiler which was relocated to the loft and thermostats fitted to all radiators.

A new Neptune kitchen was recently fitted with a generous amount of storage space and black granite worktops. The loft has power, strip lights and has also been boarded and provides ample additional storage via a loft hatch with integrated ladder. There is outside storage in a lean-to and a greenhouse (with power) in need of a TLC project. The small garden would suit the green-fingered short on spare time.

The garage, and typical of most modern houses, is great for storage and would fit a small car. The property has gas, electricity and water meters. There is a monitored burglar and smoke/fire alarm system for which the service supplier is happy to transfer the account. There is a Sky satellite dish with a twin-receiver cabled into the lounge, an internet fibre connection is available. There is good 4G mobile phone coverage (O2) in the area.

Most of the furniture and all the kitchen white-goods are free-standing and are not included in the sale price, though the vendor has indicated that genuine offers will be considered.

Current Rates/Council Tax is currently £203 pcm (Wokingham, Band E) ; vendors average gas, electricity, and water is circa £130 pcm.

Only offers in the region of £575,000 will be considered. The vendors are willing to move out into temporary accommodation in order to facilitate a faster and simpler sale where the guide price is achieved.

Travel. Located on the edge of Lower Earley south of Reading, this address gives easy access to the M4 and A3290 and is a short commute to Basingstoke, Bracknell and Wokingham.

The new Thames Valley Science Park is close by; the more mature Winnersh Triangle, Thames Valley, Suttons Business and Green Parks are all within a very short commute. Reading University campus is just over a mile away and Reading town centre only 3 miles.

Rail links to and from Reading are excellent; lines run to the South, South-West, Wales, the West Midlands and if commuting to London is necessary there are regular trains into Paddington taking as little as 30 minutes. Reading really is a well-situated place to live.

There are regular bus services to Reading town centre, the nearest bus stop only 100 metres from the front door. There is a buzz of activity and the sound of birdsong!

Amenities. The house has a supermarket and shops within walking distance, a couple of pubs, restaurants, cafes and fast food outlets. There are pharmacies, doctors’ surgeries, dentists, opticians and even vets! Royal Berkshire Hospital is just ten minutes away.

There are several schools in the area, parks and green spaces for children to play. There is a sports and fitness club with a swimming pool nearby. The local area has miles of foot and cycle paths for those who like to walk the dog or go jogging. Many of these are through pretty little woodlands, some round a lake or alongside a river.

The best thing about our house?

Our home was empty when we first viewed it but we could see the potential to make a wonderful family home. The location is fabulous and our garden is not overlooked and completely private. It really is the best of both worlds. We tend to spend most of our time in the very sociable kitchen, along with the lounge and great sized dining room, as we love to entertain, and have hosted many parties, family get togethers and quizzes over the twenty five years that we have lived here.  We have made some great friends amongst our lovely neighbours  and will miss our lovely home,  but it’s now time for another  family to take over as custodians.
