Property Description

The double fronted Victorian villa is set centrally within its private acre plot. Within the grounds is an orchard, two ponds and extensive mature tree and shrub borders. A detached double garage provides additional parking and there are a number of out buildings across a secluded cobbled courtyard. They include a wood store; garden store and tool store which could easily further enhance the property by converting them all into a separate self-contained annexe. In addition one of the outbuildings has already been converted into a two-storey office.

Entering through the stained glass original doorway into this detached residence you will pause in awe at the original tiled hallway and grand staircase with doors leading to the sitting room, drawing room, study/library and main kitchen/dining/living room. To the rear of the property is an inner hall leading to a cloakroom and good sized utility room with a Belfast sink and fitted units. Leading off the utility room is a boiler room housing the new Megaflow system. The two front aspect reception rooms both have original working marble fireplaces, and the main sitting room is flooded with natural light from the large south facing bay window. The kitchen is the heart of the home, providing a large space for entertaining and an open plan family seating area looking out across the gardens. The kitchen itself is from Neptune with solid wood fitted units and appliances including an integrated fridge freezer with wine fridge. Under floor heating means you can comfortably spend a leisurely evening dining with family and friends all year round.

To the first floor, you will find five generously sized bedrooms, three of which boast dual aspect windows with high ceilings and deep skirting boards. The master bedroom further benefits from a generously sized en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is sure to impress, a stunning four piece suite featuring a free standing deep bath, beneath a large picture window. This room also benefits from under floor heating and a tiled corner shower unit. A further staircase from the upper galleried landing leads to bedroom six with two large eaves storage rooms either side, which lends itself to further expansion and could easily create a media room or guest suite with additional bathroom.

The property is also served by excellent transport links, providing connections to the North, London and the South West via the M40, M25 and M4. Reading mainline train station offers a high speed train service into London Paddington and in the future Crossrail will offer even easier access to the city of London.
