Property Description

Glenmore is a detached Edwardian residence on a 1/3 of an acre plot believed to have been built in the early 1900s. It has undergone several extensions during its lifetime to provide spacious and well-appointed accommodation of 2,892 sq ft. offering generous family living space with a large garden along with a high specification, self-contained, one bedroom annexe.

The property is located in Crowthorne where there are a variety of local shops, boutiques, cafes, pubs and restaurants providing essential amenities. Situated in the M3/M4 corridor, transport links are good with Heathrow airport approximately 45 minutes away and Gatwick is about 50 minutes. Rail services from Crowthorne go to Reading, Guildford and Gatwick airport. Nearby Wokingham, Bracknell and Farnborough mainline stations are within easy reach with direct services to Reading and London Waterloo. Crossrail via Reading is scheduled to be available from 2019 cutting journey time to London considerably.

The neighbouring towns of Wokingham and Camberley offer a wide variety of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. The larger towns of Reading and Bracknell are not far away and are home to the Oracle and the new Lexicon in Bracknell which have all the major high street stores, cinema complexes and many restaurants, pubs and cafes. There is a large range of excellent schools, both state and independent, within Crowthorne and the surrounding area as well as many family attractions such as water sports at Horseshoe Lake, Coral Reef Waterworld, the Lookout discover centre and many country parks.

The property has been partially updated by the current owners with scope for further improvements. The addition of the self contained annexe and office/games room could also generate a rental income. Set back from the road, a covered, tiled porch leads you into the hallway with access to a cloakroom, utility and an office. There are three great sized reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room that flow from one to the other creating great entertaining space for family and friends. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. The second floor provides a fifth bedroom with dressing area and a four piece en-suite. There is loft access and eaves storage as well.   

The self-contained annexe was added in 2016, by converting the original double garage. It has its own front door accessible at the side of the main house, one double bedroom, a full size kitchen, a shower room with WC and a living room with French doors opening onto its own decking, overlooking the garden.

A single car garage was added to the annex which is split into a storage area with a garage front and a large office room with its own external front door, which could be used as a gym or a games room if preferred.   

The garden is mainly laid to lawn with some paved areas. It has several Japanese Maple trees which turn a beautiful shade of red in the autumn. In the summer there is lavender, rhododendron, grape vine and wisteria in the back garden and to the front of the house there are roses and flowering climbing plants. It also attracts a range of wildlife, the current owners have regularly seen a variety of birds as well as hedgehogs and foxes and often hear owls in the woods opposite, giving the sense of a more rural location. There is also a large workshop as well as a standard garden shed and a wood store.
