A CHANCE FOR VILLAGE LIVING - noir by david cliff - This is one you do not want to miss if village life is the one for you, a stunning 6 bedroom home with versatile and flexible living space.
Let`s begin with the picturesque and sought-after village of Swallowfield. Not only do you have scenic country walks on your doorstep, but the benefit of close by amenities including the GP Practice/ Pharmacy, General Store, Post Office and two great pubs plus a thriving community with Parish Hall and a Church. With the sense of rural surroundings, other close by attractions such as Reading, and The Oracle Shopping centre is just a stone`s throw away. Great school catchments, bus links and easy access to the M4, makes this the ideal location.
Built circa 1850s, Wyvols Cottages is quite special and different to anything I`ve come across before. It all begins as you swing onto the driveway, where there`s plentiful space for parking and notice the pretty front entrance.
Stepping through the front door you`ll be impressed by the spacious feel of the hallway, a great space for welcoming guests and taking off coats and muddy shoes from all that walking! Off to the right is a good sized private study.
To the left there`s a very cosy living room, with the added character of a feature log burner and the high ceilings which add to the sense of space.
The large dining room is entered through double doors giving you the option to close off for more formal occasions or spilling out for those big family Christmas celebrations.
The room that blew me away was the stunning "Neptune" kitchen. Not only is it high spec, but also the use of practicality and space it provides makes this the ultimate area for family life and entertaining friends. The view of the beautiful garden makes this a room you`ll want to spend all your time in. You also have the benefit of a great sized utility room just off the kitchen with a backdoor leading out to the garden for your furry four-legged friends.
Upstairs and the consistency of space and balance continues with 5 great sized bedrooms. There is a generous sized family bathroom, and an en suite to the master. Tastefully decorated throughout, with ample room for storage in each room, this house really does have it all.
The added bonus of the well-appointed annex offers additional flexibility for accommodating family members and guests. A versatile living space with 1/ 2 bedrooms.
The professionally landscaped garden with mature shrubs and trees overlooking agricultural land is one you could only dream of! It’s truly spectacular and with a large patio area, and room for all your furniture and equipment, it makes for the perfect space for entertaining on those hazy BBQ days. There is a pretty pathway leading down to a separate quaint patio area. The garden also benefits from a range of outbuildings, one of which is currently used for chickens.
I have to say the setting here is dreamy - the question is quite simply "Is this for you ... Why not come along and see?
