More Than Meets The EyeMORE THAN MEETS THE EYE - This really is a beautifully and lovingly kept home that is spotless throughout
What we love about settings like this on Barkham Ride is that you have a rural feel to things yet have everything on your doorstep. Local shops, well regarded restaurants and fantastic doctors surgery all only a short walk away. You then have some excellent local schools, country parks and the FBC centre so to be fair every base is covered and if you want to venture into Wokingham itself and the train station it’s literally 5 minutes away.
The frontage here is excellent, provision for ‘in and out’ driveway if you have the need for it but either way some excellent parking for a number of vehicles and access to the tandem length garage.
Walking inside you have some great living space here and typical of a chalet style home it’s really versatile. The main reception room runs front to back with bow window to the front and then patio doors to the rear allowing light to flow through and giving access and views to the fantastic gardens. You can choose what to do here as far as furnishing is concerned, lovely living area with room to dine, work space or just spread out.
You then have a separate dining room which is also a great size and leads through to the kitchen/ breakfast room at the rear. Scope here again to change, knocking through could work if you fancied a more open plan feel, something for the future maybe?
The front room is currently used as a bedroom, a lovely square room which could easily be further reception space depending on what your needs are. I think the versatility that this space offers is key, some may want the ground floor bedroom now or in the future and it’s all possible here.
As you can imagine you then have a ground floor bathroom here to service the ground floor bedroom as is. This is a white suite which has been beautifully kept.
The kitchen / breakfast room runs along the rear, again a good size, well fitted and spotless. The views to the gardens are really lovely, you can see the possibilities here.
Moving upstairs we keep things simple, two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and then a good size shower room and WC. Without keeping on you again can see how well this home works as is but can also see the further potential on offer (Stp).
The gardens here are wonderful, not only a great size but a lovely established look and feel. I’m a bit old school and love have a large lawn area and you have it here. The feeling of privacy is noticeable and becoming increasingly rare so you are lucky here. The garaging whilst huge sits to one side here and again gives possibilities for you if you have the thought to do something.
All in all this is a beautiful home as it is but does also offer some scope to change (stp) and at worst some truly versatile living space on a more than generous plot …. Well worth a look!
