BUILT WITH PURPOSE - noir by david cliff - `Rowans` is a substantial three bedroom detached property and this is the first time that this house has been offered to the market since it was built for the current owner as part of their retirement plan. Since then it has served as a spacious, practical home in one of Wokingham`s premier locations.
As you wind your way down Gipsy Lane you could be mistaken for being in the middle of the countryside; the bonus being that you are actually only a short walk from the centre of Wokingham which offers an array of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a railway station which has lines to Reading, London Waterloo and Guildford and Gatwick Airport.
Pull up on the drive and make your way towards the front door and as you step inside you will find yourself in a large, open hallway with the staircase running up the back wall. This area is spacious enough that it has been used not only as an entrance hall but also as a study area.
Off to your right hand side you will find the door to the garage which loops back round on to the driveway and on the left you`ll discover a downstairs shower room. The kitchen stretches across the left-hand side of the property and is fitted with integrated oven and hob. There is ample storage space in this kitchen and what I personally really like is that just outside the back door there is a covered walkway which can be accessed from the garden and the driveway - it acts as the perfect spot for things that need to be store outside but that you want to keep dry...very practical!
The main sitting and dining room is an expansive space which stretches 24ft by 12ft (I did say it was big!!) and can be used as you see fit. As you can see from the photo, it is currently configured in an open layout. It works perfectly as it is but this flexible space can be arranged in many ways to suit your needs. There is also an open fireplace that is equipped to convert to a gas insert.
Off the back of the sitting room (but also linked to the kitchen) is the conservatory which has always been used as an extra reception room. This part of the house enjoys a southerly aspect so is a warm haven in the summer and the perfect spot to enjoy some winter sun on those chillier days. From here, french windows open on to the garden patio.
Upstairs is a spacious and practical layout and shows again that this has been designed with comfortable living in mind. The master bedroom is a generous size and has a large en-suite shower room as well as a double aspect thanks to an unusual modern oriel window which adds to the characterful feel.
There is also a massive built-in wardrobe (6ft by 6ft!!). Then, bedroom two also has an en-suite bathroom and bedroom three is a really good size with a built-in double wardrobe. This has house has been designed to be well proportioned and super user-friendly!
Outside, the plot almost wraps around the property and is filled with an abundance of mature shrubs and plants, a lawn area and large patio. Being south-facing, this is a true sun trap which benefits from natural sunlight throughout the day.
This place is certainly "interesting" and "unique" and whilst I could keep talking about it for hours, I would really recommend that you get in touch and we can show you it in the flesh.
