HIDDEN GEM - noir by david cliff is delighted to bring you this truly unique property like no other, believed to date in part from the early 18th century, from the first moment I turned onto the 130` driveway I felt I was about to find something truly special and unique and I was not disappointed.
As I drove down the fresh gravel driveway in front of me was a delightful family character home in a secluded position set back off of Barkham road, as i parked up i was blown away by how much parking was available with a property this close to town. I took my first steps into property and was met by a very spacious hall way that was complemented with double french doors at the other end of the hallway letting in so much light giving it such a bright and airy feel, and also giving you plenty of space to hang your coats and take off your shoes after a long day.
Moving through the ground floor to my right and for me the centerpiece of this lovely family home and my favorite room of the house is the lounge, Wow what a fantastic space, with its 20`5 x 20`3 dimensions and its exposed beams, three windows letting in huge amounts of light and centrally located open fire place given you that warm cosy feeling what more could you want, it also gives you ample space for all the furniture a family of four needs so no arguments over who gets the best seat in the house for the tv of an evening.
Making our way back across the house and we come into the modern family kitchen all be it quirky in its shape it just works, it really does, the vendors have been really clever with the use of space for me, there is so much cupboard space and work surface here giving you ample space to prep all those family meals. Complemented with a fitted electric oven and 4 ring gas hob to give you a mix of cooking styles and below plenty of free cupboards for storage and gaps for any free standing appliances as the vendors have it currently.
Moving on now from the kitchen and the ground floor space keeps going we make our way towards the larger than most studys with access just off the kitchen so perfect for the family that work from home and for the kids to use in the evening for homework, but with its size could be used as a snug, playroom or another family room i think the perfect word to fit this room... versatile.
Just off the kitchen we have another of my favorite rooms in this house that the current vendors use as their dining room and its another fabulous space, with double aspect windows letting in loads of light and if that`s not enough we have the bi-fold doors running from end to end giving you access onto the paved garden and letting in even more light, you can picture yourself entertaining in this room with family and friends with the bi folds pushed all the way back on a beautiful summer evening.
Lets make our way upstairs now and onto the expansive landing that flows throughout the top floor leading you to all the bedrooms something i feel lacks in the modern day property and something that is such a great feature when buying a character property, The master is complemented with built in wardrobes and has the added bonus of a en suite shower room, bedrooms two, three and four are all double sized rooms also giving you ample space to pick and choose what kind of bedroom furniture you may require but not hamper the size of the bedroom.
The gardens to the rear are block paved bordered by banks of shrubs and plants, large mature rockery with waterfall, steps leading to a raised seating area also running along the side of the house is a further bank of shrubs, and a further raised seating area with a side gate through to driveway.
The Tannery is set off the Barkham Road, just a short distance from Wokingham train station. Nearby there are acres of parkland that border the Emmbrook. As well as being within walking distance of the town center and station which have both gone under some major re developments over the past few years, there are local shops on Barkham Road and a play park and football fields for the kids to enjoy also.
This excellent home is positioned in an ideal location within easy access of the A329M and M4 in one direction and Wokingham town centre in the other. Well regarded schools are close by and Wokingham railway station offers connections to London, Reading and Gatwick Airport. Don’t forget that Wokingham also benefits from being a short drive away from Twyford station providing even faster routes to London and will soon benefit from Crossrail!
