This Grade II listed barn conversion is steeped in history and has been completely transformed by the current owners in their fifteen years at the property. It is nestled within a peaceful courtyard of just three properties on the fringes of Shinfield village.
As you enter you’re greeted by the luxury kitchen which features a limestone tiled floor, integrated German appliances and quartz worktops with adjacent raised dining area – a fantastic social space well-suited for modern day living. There is a utility room and airing cupboard with a hidden staircase providing access to two of the bedrooms upstairs. The staircase is handcrafted and made from authentic French oak and there are various original beams throughout the property dating back to the 1600’s. There is exposed brickwork that runs the entirety of the hallway leading to the current owners home office (formerly a bedroom), another bedroom, a four piece family bathroom with free standing claw foot bath and the 25ft living room with vaulted ceiling, 10kw Hwan log burner and a characterful, raised alcove.
There are three more bedrooms upstairs, two of which adjoin via ‘secret door’, whilst the master is off on its own with separate dressing area on a lower tier to the bedroom and an en-suite shower room. There is water based underfloor heating throughout and an array of quirky storage cupboards on both floors.
There is a practical landscaped garden with large patio suitable for garden furniture and a children’s play area too and striking views over open fields. There is a pathway from the garden that leads to the communal woodland in excess of three acres . There is also a double garage and off street parking to the front.
There are excellent transport links, junction 11 of the M4 is less than 10 minutes away providing a straightforward link into London within an hour. Reading mainline station offers a high speed train service into London Paddington, with Crossrail expected to be ready by December 2019.

One of the most common mistakes made by buyers is not speaking to a Mortgage Advisor before starting their search. Rates change all of the time and banks only look at the mortgage rates they personally offer. You never know, by speaking to an advisor, you might be able to afford a larger home on smaller repayments!
It’s shocking that nationally, almost 50% of property sales don’t actually reach completion. That’s often due to required legal processes and a lack of communication. Avoid being a part of this shocking stat by using our specialist Conveyancing services, we help you find and actually move in to your dream home.
When buying a home, it’s a good idea to have an additional survey carried out before progressing too far with the purchase. This protects you from any hidden surprises later down the line! Mortgage Surveys do not check the condition of the property so may not highlight things you should be aware of.
