Property Summary

TRUE VILLAGE LIFE – Family life set over three floors but ALSO planning approved to extend if you choose.

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 the much complimented, re-generated Wokingham a short hop away.

I first saw this home when originally built and the current owners were lucky enough to secure it on the spot. They have since already extended upwards with some lovely accommodation up into the roof space that really works.

They have since achieved planning to further extend to the ground and first floors but life is taking them reluctantly slightly out of the area to enjoy village life elsewhere, once it has you, it has you.

So, Firestone, pretty cool name I think you’d agree.

A really lovely home, open plan living t the ground floor but plenty of it with the reception space almost square at 18ft by 17ft so plenty of options to furnish and change as life changes, the two sets of French doors then allow you to view and spill out into the pretty extensive gardens.

A double width opening then takes you through to the kitchen, and it works well. Extensive cupboard and pan space with a freestanding Island unit and integrated appliances give what you need and would expect, and the open plan feel then shares natural light from both sides.

Moving to the first floor and you have three fantastic bedrooms, bedroom two has an en suite shower room with a further family bathroom servicing bedroom three and four.

Rising again to the top floor and you have a lovely master suite, you can choose how this works for you, the main bedroom area is obvious with Velux windows allowing the light to pour in and then some extensive eaves storage.
You also have a dressing area which you could do so much with, and further en suite bathroom, all together a fantastic space.

Now moving outside, we have a great overall plot. Firestone is elevated slightly so has a good feel when you pull up outside and decent parking on the gravelled driveway, gravel is still my favourite finish to a driveway. The evergreen hedge then softens things and give a colour contrast all year round.

Through the house or use the side access and you arrive in a great size rear garden. A large patio gives room to relax or entertain and also shows how the approved extension could comfortably nestle in. The main lawn area is then also a fantastic size, room to play, kick a ball around and hide the trampoline that seems to be a must nowadays.

Still so much potential out here, outside bar/ kitchen I hear you ask, yes, plenty of room for this and the kind of garden I’d create!
