DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A Grade 2 listed house recorded as dating from the mid 18thcentury. The accommodation is described as being over three floors with a cellar and an attic. Since the listing in 1951 it may well be “the additional” accommodation has been brought into full and proper use. The listing refers to property forming “an important visual element to the south west end of Rose Street and can be seen along the whole length of the street from the north east.” There are 171 Grade 2 listed buildings in Wokingham – this must be one of the most striking. This property will no doubt appeal to a wide range of occupiers. For many years it was in the same family ownership and during that time it was primarily, if not exclusively in residential use. Martin & Pole sold the property to the current owner with a successful retail business occupying three rooms.
There are some lovely parks in and around Wokingham Town Centre.
