Seeing Is BelievingGENEROUS PLOT & ENVIABLE LOCATION - noir by david cliff - This home has been totally transformed into what is now a truly versatile and quite stunning family home which sits on a much larger than average plot in one of Wokingham’s most premier locations.
Quite often I will ask a seller why they purchased the property for themselves and when I asked our client this time, they said exactly what I knew they would say - the plot and the location. And you can so see why…the garden is fantastic. The whole property offers all the variety you need, from "flat parking", a lawn area with swimming pool, outbuilding with power and then of course the woodland copse at the bottom of the plot. To own a property of this size, on a plot this big, in a road like Hollybush Ride simply just does not come around often.
The current owners have created something quite special; you really do need to walk inside here to fully appreciate what is on offer. The secluded setting in Hollybush Ride is one that many are still not aware of, a hidden gem of a road. The approach here itself sets the scene well, you have your own space and privacy to the rear giving a wonderful rural feel too, not to mention some fantastic woodland walks.
On arrival the vast sweeping gravel drive allows parking for numerous vehicles so you, your guests and children of a driving age that come and go with their friends will all be accommodated. You also then have a large gated side access that takes you to the rear of the property where there is the original garage that is currently being used as a gym.
So moving inside I`ll give you an overview on what has been created here as words really won’t do it justice, scroll through the pictures too and you`ll have some idea of how impressive this is and then let’s arrange a personal tour.
The entrance hall is as you would want and expect in a family home, room to get inside, get the shoes and coats off or greet your guests, the chequered style floor is stunning by the way and continues in to the large gallery style reception room that is home to the piano. This is just one of the many versatile rooms of this home.
Moving into the living room you have a beautiful space, 24by 12ft. With a large front aspect windows and beautiful focal point fireplace. Also, the shape of this room allows you options on how you would want to furnish, or you can move things around. Towards the end of the entrance hall you have a heart of the home, you’ll be "wowed". A stunning use of space that has created the most fantastic kitchen/ living/ dining space with rear doors opening to another WOW factor which is the garden. You`ll also hopefully notice the thought that has gone into this design, the tall standing fireplace perfectly positioned and very effective this time of year.
The main kitchen area itself has been beautifully fitted with a modern take to a country style design, light pastel finished units with exposed legs on the bottom units and lovely contrasting work surfaces. The range cooker stands out beautifully and really finishes off this designed well.
To the side of the kitchen is a room, this enables you to pull up on the drive with muddy boots or a dog that has enjoyed rolling in the mud you can walk straight into this boot room without stepping foot into the main house.... clever.
Another really nice surprise here is an extra ground floor bedroom suite, this for me would be fantastic for guests so they have their own privacy or indeed those older children who may be coming back at various times of the day or night and don`t want to disturb the rest of the household. The shower room ensures that it really is self-contained in that regard so it works, conversely you could simply treat it as extra reception space, treatment room or gym with shower facilities, I hate to keep on about versatility but you see what I mean .....
