A TALE OF TWO HALVES - noir by david cliff - As you enter through the electric gates, standing before you is a stunning and substantial detached home with the most glorious wistaria draped right the way across the front. As you wander across the large gravel drive and walk on in, you are bound be impressed with the sheer amount of versatile accommodation on offer, sprawling from one side of this impressive house to the other. To the right hand side is the sitting room which stretches from front to back of what would have been the original house. Some years ago now, the current owners had the most amazing Cherry wood cabinets and paneling installed the whole way along one side of the room. This really sets the scene in here with the perfect balance of natural sunlight flooding in through the front and the back, yet with a cosy and traditional feel aided by the log burner positioned in the middle of the room. Off the back the sitting room is the conservatory which has three sets of double doors out on to the rear and acts as an additional seating space where you can relax whilst enjoying views of your expansive garden. Occupying the left hand side of the property is `the hub of the house`; a stunning open plan kitchen breakfast room which opens up in to a large dining room, both with bi-folding doors opening out on to the patio at the back. Whilst open-plan living is popular, I know just how much people appreciate an additional room that is closed off and that is exactly what you will find here, with a large snug which benefits from a double aspect so is light and bright but also the perfect spot to nestle down after a long day to watch a movie! Upstairs, all the bedrooms are of a generous size with my particular favourite being the master room as not only does it have a dressing area and en suite but it also has a glass balcony overlooking the garden - it`s a great touch and just one of the `bonuses` that sets this house aside from its competition. Every bedroom has its own built in wardrobes and the main bathroom has a seperate shower as well as an extra deep bath.
Once you reach bedroom two, you start to discover why this house is `a tale of two halves`. Put simply, not only does Cherry Trees have a whole abundance of downstairs and upstairs living space but the new owner will be able to benefit from a self contained annex!
The annex has it`s own front door from the driveway, a modern fully functional kitchen which has modern gloss units and stone worktops as well as integrated double ovens. It has its own utility room, large living dining room and then as you head upstairs you will find a double bedroom with built in wardobes and an en suite shower room. The current owners have always had relatives living in the annex but it also lends itself to being a teenagers flat or possible rental opportunity. The added bonus here is that whilst the annex has it`s own entrance from outside, it also has a door from upstairs in the main house so if the owner had no use for a separate dwelling, it can be fully utilised as part of the main house.
Once you`ve visited Cherry Trees, I am sure you will agree with me that when it comes to the outside space, it is absolutely gorgeous. A perfectly mowed lawn, manicured beds and a whole array of colourful, vibrant shrubs and flowers. Not only that, it is an impressive size and has various outbuildings which just add to the whole practicality of the house.
To your left hand side as you walk in to the garden you will spot "The Man Cave" - a great outbuilding with contemporary wood cladding and contemporary grey full height windows and french doors so you can bring the outdoors in, on a hot sunny day!
Cherry Trees is ideally positioned on the outskirts of Wokingham within easy reach of excellent road links and well-regarded state and private schools.
