MORE THAN MEETS THE EYEMORE THAN MEETS THE EYE - Time and time again we see the word "tardis" used when it comes to describing properties.....this isn`t just any old tardis though, this is really something special! Positioned in a popular spot in Crowthorne with Oaklands School at the end of the road, this extended family home hasn`t been on the market for over 20 years. In that time, our sellers have reconfigured the property and expanded it in to the versatile and spacious property that you are now able to buy. Trust us, this is one you simply have to see if you want to truly understand the sheer amount of accommodation on offer..and don`t even get us started on the garden!!
It`s common knowledge that children are staying at home until they are much older these days so, first things first, there is ample space to park multiple cars on the driveway (and all have space to drive on and off without disturbing siblings!). Now when you walk inside you will find yourself in a large open hallway and this is one of the parts of the house that has been reconfigured. The result - plenty of space to kick off shoes, hang up coats, store the buggy etc etc.
Straight ahead, you`ve got some gorgeous double oak doors that open in to the main living dining room, to the left is the access to the kitchen and round to the right is your door in to the garage and utility room. Not forgetting, you also have a downstairs cloakroom which is a necessity, especially with children or visiting guests!
The kitchen runs right the way from the front of the house through to the back. You start to get a feel for the versatility theme that runs throughout the property when you are in this room as the end part of the kitchen is currently used as an additional snug but has previously served as the dining room and a breakfast area. The kitchen itself has a tiled floor and ample units and cupboards for storage as well as some integrated appliances.
From the snug you can wander on through in to lounge diner which is an impressive space with bi-folding doors opening out on to the patio. The current owners have had a log burner installed for those cosy winter nights but the double doors to the hallway and bi-folds give the contrasting feel in the summer where this is a lovely light, bright and airy room.
The garage has two opening doors to save the hassle of an "up and over" and off the back of the garage is the utility room which also has a door out on to the garden. This is an excellent space to store things out of the way of the main house, something that a growing family will know about only too well!!
Upstairs, the ongoing space continues with the main bedroom occupying the middle of the property. This is a vast room which has high quality built in wardrobes and where the house has been extended to the rear, there is a vaulted ceiling with velux window which further creates the light and bright feel that already seems to run through this property.
The remaining bedrooms are all extremely well proportioned with both the second and third being generous double rooms and bedroom four is an excellent size too. You also have the added benefit of having both a main family bathroom and then a separate shower room as well - perfect for a growing family!
There are a number of "wow" moments as you wander round this place and you`ll experience one of these when you discover the loft. The attic has been fully boarded out, carpeted and decorated and is currently used as an office overlooking the garden - the central heating even runs up here too! It has previously been an extra playroom for the children and has also acted as an excellent storage space. We must advise that this space is to be used as a "bonus space" and not a bedroom.
Ready for another wow moment?? Wait until you get out in to the garden!! There is a whole array of secluded areas throughout what is a much larger than average rear garden and one of the biggest we`ve seen in this style of property in Crowthorne. There`s a space for the hot tub, a pergola covering another patio for a table and chairs, a secluded sun bathing area, a pond, two lawn areas and...a heated swimming pool! Yes, that`s right, a heated pool with its own pool house housing all the equipment that goes with it.
We have it on good authority that this family have had many happy years in this garden and have held some rather large parties too and it is so clear to see how and why!
Crowthorne benefits from being sat between both M3 and M4 motorways so is ideal for commuters. The area is furnished with many well regarded private and state schools including Edgbarrow, Oaklands, Hatch Ride, Our Ladys and Wellington Collage (we insist you check all catchments directly with the school). There is plenty of woodland around including Heath Lake and Bucklers Forest and Crowthorne High Street offers a selection of eateries and boutique shops.
No amount of words will really do this house justice so pick up the phone and get in touch so you can explore it all for yourself.
