FAR MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE – Set over three floors you have just under 2000 sq ft of living space here and all in the most wonderful village setting.
When it comes to Swallowfield I`m a bit biased, my mother still lives out here along with a lot of good friends and it`s a fantastic village to grow up in, settle down in or retire to.....it has something for everyone. As a quintessential English village, it`s well-known for its picturesque setting and traditional local amenities, including GP Practice/ Pharmacy, General Store, Post Office and two pubs plus a thriving community with Parish Hall and a Church.
Residents enjoy a perfect blend of peaceful, rural surrounds with easy access to town centre attractions, with the vibrant area of Reading just over 15 minutes from the village by car, or by regular
Bus service and Wokingham a short hop away. The primary schools are highly regarded and secondary schooling in the local area is fantastic for comprehensive school requirements. Bus connections also give access to Reading and Hampshire schools.
Wander in through the door of this lovely looking cottage and you will be staggered at what greets you inside. Having been totally refurbished and extended by the current owners, they have created a versatile five bedroom family home that is ready to move into.
Through the open porch and into the entrance hall and the large cloakroom is off to you left. Go straight ahead and you’re into the main living room, lovely space, and a great size with cosy fireplace for the winter and doors out into the gardens for summertime.
The heart of the home is just how you would want it and takes the form of a huge kitchen, family and dinning space that runs front to back and flooded with light through the large window to the front and bi-fold doors across the rear. The stunning polished floor reflects the light and gives an eye-catching seamless feel and look, the extensive kitchen has a more traditional style to the cupboard fronts with contrasting worksurfaces that keep the contemporary blend in tune.
The seating and dining area then opens up onto the terrace and gardens through the bi-fold doors, plenty of room for sofas too. You do also have a separate utility room here with room to hide all those things that need hiding.
Moving up to the first floor we have four of the five bedrooms, two - five and a stunning family bathroom with free standing bath and separate walk in shower. Bedroom two also has a lovely en suite shower room which completes this floor and all the rooms are great shapes and sizes.
The top floor is where you hide out, the master suite and it has a boutique hotel style set-up with open plan en suite that could be closed if you prefer. The lovely free-standing bath and separate shower looks fantastic and to top it all you then have your very own walk in dressing room.
Outside, You have some extensive parking to the front so no issues there and the rear gardens are a lovely size. Great time has been taken to create the initial courtyard look which incorporates the patio area giving a lovely entertaining and chilling space. The remainder is then lawn so space fpr the kids to play and set up the badminton net or goal.
Bias as I am about this location, this house is fantastic and well worth a visit.
