EXCEPTIONAL VERSATILITYEXCEPTIONAL VERSATILITY - If you are looking for a family home in a popular location with expansive and versatile downstairs living space as well as a stunning garden then quite simply; this house is the one for you. The house is also being sold with no onward chain - I mean, does it honestly get any better!?
There`s so much to talk about with this house that I`ve actually struggled with where best to start. This is certainly one of those `lifestyle` properties that you can adapt as your circumstances change or your family grows. For example, what is now a study was once a play room and what is now a family room has been a dining room. There are so many options here and, for me, it`s what really separates this house from the competition.
The house looks substantial from the front and is definitely a house to be proud of owning. You have ample space to comfortably park on the driveway as well as the use of a double garage with electric up and over door. Sat behind the perfectly pruned hedge is a pathway that takes you to the front door and as soon as you step inside the house from here, you instantly get a real sense of light and space; all aided by a light coloured tiled floor that runs through in to the study and kitchen as well as the enviable interior decor which is a true credit to the current owners.
The main living room runs from the front to the back of the house with a gas fireplace as the main focal point. Towards the back of the room, prospective buyers will enjoy views over the garden and given that the house enjoys a south-westerly aspect, the room is constantly filled with light. Next to the living room and still at the back of the house is the family room. The current owners use this as an occasional dining room as well as an extra sitting room as it benefits from natural sunlight coming in over the garden.
We all know that in most houses, the kitchen often ends up being the hub of the home. The owners here recognised this and, to their credit, have made this into an ultra user-friendly space which has clearly been given an impressive amount of thought. For example, an archway was created in between the original study and the kitchen to create what was originally used as a playroom - this provided the facility for mum to be cooking in the kitchen whilst the children played safely in the play room. Now it`s a trendy study space where you can work from but still be `at the party`.
The breakfast area is also an excellent addition which offers the ideal space to eat whilst looking out over the garden; helped massively by the additional of bi-fold doors which don`t only assist with the amount of light that floods in but also bring the outside inside in those summer months. On the subject of practicality, this area has underfloor heating and just beyond the breakfast area is the utility room which provides the ideal space for appliances to whir away behind the scenes and for excess storage. From here, there is also a door in to the double garage.
The practicality and versatility theme continues as you wander upstairs, with three (yes, three!) bathrooms; an en suite to the master, a main family bathroom and an additional en suite shower room to bedroom two which makes the perfect guest room. Both bedrooms one and two benefit from having built in wardrobes and you do have the addition of an airing cupboard on the landing as well. As it stands, the current owners don`t have the need for all five bedrooms so currently use one of the bedrooms as a study which just shows, again, how flexible this place is.
Now, if the inside doesn`t blow you away, then the outside should do the job!
I have to say, I see a lot of gardens and this one has so clearly been cherished and nurtured over the years to create a tranquil haven with an abundance of mature shrubs and vibrant flowers with multiple seating areas to make the most of that sunny aspect. Backing on to school fields you are guaranteed quiet weekends and school holidays and the general quiet location in which this property is sat already means you have a peaceful setting.
Avery Close is positioned in Finchampstead just around the corner from the local shops, restaurants, doctors and schools so is in an excellent location. It is one of those roads where you will have driven past it but probably won`t remember when you last saw a house for sale there - and that is quite simply because no one moves from here! The private close has a small selection of individual homes which were built by Charles Church in 1999 and what I really love about it is that none of the houses are the same.
