'Peggotty' is set within the heart of our vibrant market town, and has one of Wokingham's most sought-after addresses.
Although the shops, Post Office and eateries are just yards away, Sturges Road enjoys the quiet advantage of a no-through route for traffic and two nearby parks.
The charm of its stone bay-fronted windows, shingle driveway and classic Victorian storm porch give hints to its beautiful interior. Inside retains some original and period features including ornate wall arch mouldings, stripped pine doors and beautiful corner fireplaces.
The living space is configured to provide space for family life, focus and entertaining. The lounge captures the best use of light with its bay window and bespoke slatted shutters. The fireplace and mantelpiece complete the classic feel of this reception room.
The dining room, which has a door opening to the kitchen patio, has character natural wooden floorboards and an ironwork fireplace.
Stepping into the rustic style kitchen, the range cooker, timber worktop and butler's sink make for a homely family setting. The breakfast bar is designed to keep the cook's area clear when cooking, yet accommodate up to four stools for informal mealtimes. There's an integrated wine rack, plumbing for a dishwasher, and door to the outside and patio.
A separate and large utility room, with high ceiling and roof window, has ample worktop, butler's sink, storage and plumbing for a washing machine. To the side is a cloakroom with neutral fittings and mirrored wall.
For garden parties, family gatherings or quiet family time, the l-shaped conservatory brings inside and garden living together.
The three bedrooms are arranged on the first floor, with stepped landing, family bathroom and lofty stairwell. The bathroom is fitted with tasteful sanitaryware, including purpose-shaped bathtub & shower, hydro jets, shower screen and fitted vanity units
The large master bedroom has a bay window, bespoke shutters, fitted storage and corner fireplace; a second double bedroom has a corner fireplace and over-looks the garden, and the single bedroom is enhanced by its own feature fireplace.
Classically for the Victorian era, the garden is a good length, with lawn, shrubs, garden shed and a raised sun decking area. Patio stones brace the conservatory and lead to the kitchen door and side access.
For younger families, this home is just a short walk to St Teresa's Catholic Primary, Wescott Infant and Westend Junior Schools, and for older children there is a footpath and crossing for pupils to walk to St Crispin's Secondary School.
The station is within walking distance, and the unique and vibrant town of Wokingham has just benefitted from a £270m regeneration investment. Locals enjoy a wide range of pubs, eateries and coffee shops including Gail's Bakery, Nando's, Costa, Caffè Nero and Pizza Express. There are plenty of independent restaurants, wine bars, and even a gin bar in the new Peach Place. For groceries Wokingham has a large Waitrose, Aldi and Tesco. There is a selection of clothing retailers including Wallis, M&Co, Fat Face and Mountain Warehouse, but also independent boutiques such as Purple Butterfly and The Dolls' House Boutique. Leisure facilities include gyms, a public swimming pool, parks, library, bowling alley and 360 Escape Rooms. Coming soon, the town will see a boutique cinema opening in Elms Field and the town hosts music festivals and seasonal town events.
By road, Wokingham is well-connected for the M3 and M4, and for High Street retail shopping both Bracknell and Reading are within easy reach (including by bus). Trains arrive in London Waterloo in just over an hour, and there is a direct line to Gatwick airport.
