New Home In A Village SpotNEW HOME IN A VILLAGE SPOT - Sometimes you walk in to a house and you get that instant warm homely feeling...this is certainly one of those. You can just tell from the minute you step in the door that so much love and attention has gone in to the presentation of the property, from the wall colours to the soft furnishings and from the worktops to the floors, this isn`t one to miss.
The Pippins was only built by Bellway Homes in 2017 and when it was built it was big news as there hadn`t been such a development in Swallowfield for years. It created the opportunity to buy a brand new house in what is a small, neighborly development but within a stones throw of the centre of the village (hence "New Home In A Village Spot") and this house now presents that opportunity one more time. The presentation really is impeccable!! As you turn in to the road, you have the green along your right hand side and as you travel down towards the end, this property is positioned on the corner, opposite one of the bridges over the brook. To the rear there is a garage which has light and power and in front of the garage is the driveway.
Walking in through the front door you get a sense of light and space as soon as you get inside. Being on the corner helps as it means that the living is dual aspect allowing light to flood in through the windows which follows through in to the hallway. The hall is lovely and wide and being a newer build, all the rooms are off of it so there is no wasted space. The living room stretches along the right have side of the property with a bay window to the front (enjoying views of the green opposite) and in between the two windows on the right hand wall is a log burner. Towards the back of the room are french doors which open out on to the patio.
Across the hall and on the left hand side of the house is the dining room. Now you may or may not use this room for dining as there is ample space for a table in the kitchen so it will really depend on your needs but on the whole, this is a lovely size room and, again, enjoys views over the front. Behind the dining room is a study which is perfectly sized for a desk as well as storage cabinets if required, otherwise it would make a great play room or chill out room for children.
The kitchen dining room is positioned at the back of the house and has an integrated fridge freezer, dishwasher, double oven and gas hob. It is finished to a high specification with quartz worktops and chrome switches and sockets which really set this property aside. With two windows to the rear enjoying a westerly aspect and the french doors to the side enjoying an easterly aspect; this room is full of light all day long.
Moving on upstairs, the landing is large in size and there is generous sized airing cupboard with double doors and built in racking. Off the landing are four really well proportioned bedrooms. All four bedrooms have built in wardrobes and both the master bedroom and the second bedroom have identical en suite shower rooms which are finished to am impressive standard with heated towel rails and double shower enclosures. The main bathroom is of a modern finish and has a shower over the bath.
The garden is safe and secluded and has the benefit of being walled on two of the three boundaries so it really is low maintenance. It is currently laid to lawn making it easy to upkeep but there is plenty of scope for someone to exercise their green fingers and add some further character if they wanted to.
As a quintessential English village, Swallowfield is well-known for its picturesque setting and traditional local amenities, including GP Practice/ Pharmacy, General Store, Post Office and two pubs plus a thriving community with Parish Hall and a Church. Residents enjoy a perfect blend of peaceful, rural surrounds with easy access to town centre attractions, with the vibrant area of Reading just over 15 minutes from the village by car, or by regular Bus service and Wokingham a short hop away. The primary school in Farley Hill is highly regarded and Bohunt, in the local area, is fantastic for comprehensive school requirements. Bus connections also give access to Reading and Hampshire schools.
