THE IDEAL FAMILY HOMETHE IDEAL FAMILY HOME - With a huge amount of investment going in to Arborfield at the moment by way of new roads, new schools, new shops and amazing green spaces, Arborfield is simply `the place to be`. It`s all well and good living in the right area but you have to be in the correct house, right?
Well let us help you with that point...this is an expansive five bedroom detached family home positioned in a quiet corner of the Penrose Park development. One thing that has always frustrated me about five bedroom homes is that you always find yourself compromising on the size of the fifth bedroom - not ideal if you`ve got 4 children who all want their own room! So..I am really pleased to be offering this to the market with five really well proportioned rooms, of which two have en suites.
As you approach this property the first thing you`ll notice is that it just looks BIG - there`s plenty of space on the driveway for parking and you have a double garage which can also be accessed from inside the house. As you walk in the house you`ll find yourself in a wide, light and spacious hallway off which you will find the main living room, accessed through double doors. This is a large room, laid to high quality laminate flooring making it, not only big but practical too with a gas fire which acts as the focal point on the far wall.
On from the living room you also have double doors into the dining room which can also be accessed from the hallway and then has french doors out on to the garden. What I really like about this part of the house is that you can have it as "open" or "closed" as you want which is something you don`t find in more modern properties that are predominantly totally open plan.
Whenever I visit a house for the first time I always ask what it was that attracted the seller to buying it in first place and on this occasion it was the kitchen and family room. As a parent myself I truly appreciate the benefit of being able to cook and entertain in a space that also allows you to keep an eye on your children, and that is exactly what this space provides. The fact you have a large palladian style window with a vaulted ceiling in the family area really adds to the sense of light and space that seems to be a consistent theme throughout the property - as you would expect, you also have french doors out on to patio from here too.
The kitchen itself is well equipped with integrated appliances including electric double oven, gas hob and dishwasher and you then have a separate utility room which offers ample space for your washing machine and tumble dryer with access to the double garage.
Moving on upstairs and you will find yourself on a large landing with the master bedroom on your right hand side, once you get to the top of the stairs. This an expansive space which has a whole wall of built in wardrobes as well as an en suite shower room with double cubicle. Bear in mind that this room pretty much covers the same floorspace as the double garage so its a big big room. Bedrooms two, three and four all also benefit from having in built in wardrobes and the guest (if that`s how you want to use it) is where you will find the second en suite shower room.
The garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and has been landscaped to provide a patio which wraps around the back of the house and there is then a seperate decking to the right hand side of the plot which provides an elevated spot for alfresco dining and this area benefits from having a west facing aspect so is perfect for catching the late afternoon and evening sun.The rest of the garden is laid to lawn and the borders are well stocked with mature shrubs and vibrant plants.
All in all this really is the ideal family home and is one you just simply have to see!
