Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
Situated within walking distance of Reading mainline railway station is this truly stunning six bedroomed Edwardian detached home having been refurbished in recent years to an extremely high and exacting standard yet retaining virtually all of its original character appeal. The substantial accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes three reception rooms and a beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room. The second floor accommodation could become a self-contained living space, if desired, whilst on the first floor the guest suite benefits from an en-suite shower room. The grounds are a particular feature with the frontage affording parking for several vehicles leading to the garage and the rear garden enjoys a sunny, southerly aspect with uninterrupted far reaching views across the town.


A reception hall of generous proportion retains all of its original character appeal including half-panelled walls, woodblock flooring and six-panelled doors off to all rooms. A turning staircase rises to the first floor and there is a deep under stairs storage cupboard. The dual aspect living room enjoys a feature fireplace as does the dining room whilst the sitting room gives access to the garden via French doors. A stunning feature of the property is the kitchen/breakfast room fitted by company of repute, ?Parlourfarm of Cirencester`. The extensive range of base and eye level units have granite work surfaces and there is a matching central island with breakfast bar. There is a recess for a six ring gas range and integrated appliances include dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The breakfast room area has plenty of space for a large table and chairs, and bi-fold doors lead to the garden. The utility room has space and plumbing for appliances and gives access to the garage whilst the shower room has been recently fitted with a high quality suite in white.


The first floor landing is bright and very spacious with stripped and waxed four-panelled doors off to all rooms and a staircase rising to the second floor. Both the dual aspect master bedroom and the guest suite are very generous in size with the guest suite benefiting from a recently installed en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has, again, been recently installed with a quality suite in white.


The second floor landing gives access to bedrooms five and six with obvious potential to create a self-contained annexe if desired. Bedroom five is a super feature being of generous proportion, with en-suite shower room and opening into an additional playroom. Bedroom six is a good size double with built-in wardrobes.


A large gravelled driveway affording parking for several vehicles, is skirted by established shrub beds and accessed via wrought-iron automatic gates. There is gated side access. The rear garden is a super feature of the property enjoying a sunny, southerly aspect with a two-tiered, full width paved terrace extending to the side of the house.

The well-tended expanse of lawn has a hardstanding to the rear where the shed and greenhouse are situated.


To the front of the property is a good sized garage with automated doors, light and power.
