Description

A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning and expansive plot including a four-bedroom period cottage and superb annex, set within their own striking gardens. Offering a wealth of period features and charm is the original detached property, which has been sympathetically restored and extended to include four double bedrooms and two good size reception rooms with a separate study. Characterful features include exposed beams, low ceilings and brick fireplaces with the sitting area log burner a particular highlight. The ground floor master bedroom is a delightful space with access to the garden and an en suite bathroom, with three additional bedrooms on the first floor. Another highlight is the county-style kitchen, fitted with wood units, granite worktops and a large aga.

Annex
The adjacent detached annex provides a stunning three-bedroom home with all the modern conveniences. Inside there is a striking open-plan living area with areas for sitting and dining open to a contemporary gloss kitchen with an impressive aga. Great care has been taken over the décor which features exposed wood, a polished concrete floor throughout the ground floor and a feature glass staircase rising to the first floor. The three bedrooms are arranged together on the first floor, including a beautiful master bedroom – its en suite bathroom with freestanding bath open to the room. The two additional bedrooms all feature exposed wood and good light from Velux windows, with access to a family shower room.

Situation
Located to the north of Wokingham in a delightful semi-rural setting but within easy reach of the M4 and A329(M) motorways, the property is surrounded by green spaces and farmland. Situated on a popular road with plentiful amenities close by, there is a renowned gastropub, The Warren, within walking distance and the highly-regarded Ashridge Manor garden centre with its charming farm café. Further shops and pubs are available in nearby Binfield (1.4 miles) and central Wokingham (2.5 miles) where there are supermarkets including a Waitrose. Convenient rail links can be accessed from Wokingham offering services into London Paddington in around 1 hour. There are a number of good schools within the local area for all age groups.

Outside
The property benefits from grounds of approx. 0.582 acres and includes separate gardens for the main cottage and annex. The original cottage has a charming front approach with ornamental hedges and a lawn area, with the rear including a good-size south-facing garden with both paved and gravel patio areas for alfresco entertaining. The annex has its own expansive lawn enclosed by hedges, with a number of flowerbeds and shrubs providing interest, plus a gravel and paved seating area. A large gravel drive provides ample parking and leads to a detached outbuilding with two double garages, a log store and a utility room.
