OH SO VERSATILEOH SO VERSATILE - This house is positioned in a non estate location on the border of Barkham and Arborfield and offers an exciting abundance of space on both ground and first floors. Originally a bungalow, this property was extended by the current owners some years ago to create the ideal family home that can be adapted as your family circumstances change.
As you pull on to the driveway you`ll notice there is ample space to park and there are also double gates to the side of the house which allow vehicular access to the garden if required.
Once you enter the house you`ll find yourself in a bright airy hallway and the first thing I noticed when I walked in was the sheer quality of all the fixtures and fittings; for example, solid wood doors with contemporary handles and top quality wooden flooring.
On the left hand side of the hall is what is currently being used as the main sitting room. This is bright room which is flooded with natural sunlight thanks to the double aspect windows; one facing east and one facing south - so there`s no shortness of light. What I really like about all the rooms downstairs in this house is that they are all very square and of a simple layout so no awkward gaps to fill and you know you can move in and all your furniture will fit!!
Across the hall is the study but I have been reliably informed that this once served as an extra bedroom as well as a playroom. However you choose to use the space, this is another generous space.
Dont fret though, there is still plenty more to come including a third reception room (and you are barely halfway through the house yet), which faces on to the garden. I would love to visit this house in another five years time to see how the new owners are using all the space as there is just so much of it!
Having originally been a bungalow there is an additional shower room on the ground floor which the owners decided to keep when they had the extension in case anyone ever wanted to use one of the rooms downstairs as a bedroom. Plus, it`s just handy to have particularly if you`ve got kids or a job that involves getting dirty - save yourself from traipsing through the house!
Now for `the hub of the house`...this room is simply huge. A large L-shaped kitchen come dining come living space which is just the ideal space for the family to come together at the end of the day or for children to do homework whilst Mum and Dad cook or just to entertain friends during the day whilst carrying on with chores. Its an amazing space which is lit with natural light and has an extra understairs cupboard as well as another cupboard towards the back door.
The kitchen itself is mainly made up of high gloss curved cupboards with stone worktops. There is ample space for storage as well as appliances, some of which are integrated.
Across almost two thirds of the back of the house is a large conservatory which looks out over the garden. This can be used as yet another reception space or for additional storage depending on your needs.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn and enjoys a westerly aspect and is wide enough and deep enough to enjoy the sun for most of the day. There is also a large double garage with double doors to the front and, as mentioned before, there is vehicular access to the back so is ideal for storage or if you run a business from home.
Upstairs this house has three well proportioned bedrooms, two of which benefit from built in storage by way of purpose built wardrobes as well as access to the eves. There is a second bathroom upstairs which is large in size and benefits from having a separate shower.
All in all, this place offers versatility throughout and has been completed to a high standard. It benefits from being in a popular location which is only due to improve thanks to the regeneration of Arborfield Green which will soon mean there are even more amenities as well as an additional primary school in addition to the fact this house is already near to the new Bohunt School (we insist all buyers check the catchment area directly with the school).
Thanks to the location you are also surrounded by countryside and farmland with a whole multitude of walks if you fancy the quieter side of life as well - you literally have the best of both worlds!
