This heavily extended family home is situated on a large plot on a private road, a stones’ throw from the outstanding Holt School and is available for the first time in over 25 years.
As you drive up the well-maintained, private gravel road the house greets you from the left and looks impressive even from the first glance. The in and out driveway is a luxury, unknown to most Wokingham properties and has space on the driveway to park numerous vehicles. The current owners have installed an electric car charger to the front of the house, which we believe could prove invaluable to the next owners.
As you enter the property, you are greeted with a cosy porch to remove bags, coats and shoes however, one further step will take you into a spacious entrance hall overlooked by the galleried landing. On the left side of the porch area there is a larger than average, double length garage which is double-skinned so lends itself to future conversion or extension, subject to the relevant planning permissions.
To the front of the property, potential buyers will find the modern kitchen finished with a popular white gloss. The kitchen benefits from a central island which is perfect for entertaining friends and family, a double range cooker which is great for the at-home chefs and also has plenty of storage cupboards. The downstairs cloakroom has been refitted and doubles up as the utility room, so those who hate a noisy kitchen, need not worry!
The rear of the property is the hub of this family home, the current owner is in the double-glazing industry and his skill is demonstrated with this gorgeous area. The first portion is the dining room which has a wooden mounted fireplace and plenty of space to walk around, however, our favourite part is the living room-come-orangery measuring over 22ft that is well insulated with an electric fireplace and granite radiators. The Ultrasky roof and double glazed sash windows bring in ample natural light, making this the perfect family area.
Furthermore, there is a code-secure study which is larger than in most homes we have seen, with great green views over the garden it makes working from home ever so easier. Making your way upstairs in this home, the galleried landing splits off into two – giving the upstairs of this home the perfect layout for growing families as the bedrooms are very separate, giving all members sufficient privacy and tranquillity if required.
On the left, you will find two double bedrooms very similar in size, both with the additional bonus of built-in storage, which always comes in handy. To the right, the master bedroom is the room you will find – this room has also been transformed by the current owners. The room itself has light coloured flooring and benefits again with masses of natural light, with views over the sunny garden. The current owners have a super king size bed which will give you an idea of the space in this bedroom, but that is not all… a walk-in wardrobe with lighting has been installed as well as a renovated en-suite with waterfall shower. The last bedroom is a great sized double bedroom also and the family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and extra storage concludes this floor.
Externally, the owners have been very lucky to enjoy this sunny, private garden over the years. The garden is almost split into two sections with a ‘secret garden’ at the back, which we are sure any children growing up in this home would make great memories in. At the moment, this part of the garden is home to a ginormous swimming pool – which again, gives you a great idea of the size.
The property itself is an 8 minute walk to the desirable Holt School and 12 minutes to Wokingham station, with easy access to both Reading and London, making this home extremely well located to suit most of the family’s needs. As for Wokingham, this market town has heaps of amenities to enjoy ranging from high end restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique shops.
