PERIOD CONVERSION – noir by david cliff – When we asked the seller why they bought this apartment they said it was because it was filled with character and charm and was one of the more generous apartments in the block, which offered open-plan living, something they couldn’t find elsewhere in a character conversion. It’s fantastic location, in short, offered the best of both worlds - an easy route for the commute to multiple locations but with Wokingham town centre on the doorstep!
As you travel down Froghall Drive you get a sense of tranquillity, seclusion and grandeur. As you reach the end of the road this attractive period building comes in to view slightly shielded by the trees. Once you have parked up to the front of the property you can explore the communal gardens! They are clearly looked after, with an abundance of different flowers, bushes and mature shrubs, making this the perfect setting to enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of life.
The entrance hall offers storage and room to breathe before you wander through to the large open plan reception space with large shuttered windows, creating a light, bright area. This room, for me, is the centre piece of this apartment. What a fantastic space with its 20`2 x 16`3 dimensions, it really is more than generous enough to allow a good size dining table for those evenings entertaining friends or family with plenty of room to then have a large L shaped sofa for those days when you just want to relax on the sofa in front of the TV.
The kitchen has been beautifully re-fitted by the current owners giving you a superb modern, stylish kitchen with plenty of work surfaces to prep food and storage cupboards alike. All be it open plan, the kitchen sits quite cleverly offset from the main living space, allowing you to zone each area whilst retaining open-living.
The two bedrooms are great sizes and again have shuttered windows, giving privacy and light, as well as a fantastic stylish look. Both have built in storage so you can then choose to furnish as heavily or lightly as you wish. The large family size bathroom is also a bit more than you may expect, with both bath and separate double shower cubicle, not usual in converted apartment living!
Froghall Drive is a popular spot and is positioned within extremely easy access to the A329M and M4 motorway, but also well regarded schools including the new Floreat School and St Crispins (we recommend that you confirm the catchment area with the schools directly). Wokingham town centre has undergone significant regeneration which is still going on meaning there are a whole array of shops, restaurants and bars now open with more due to open throughout 2019.
