A truly outstanding opportunity – a classic Cooks detached home in an enviable location, on a large plot and being sold for the first time since new! 3 bedrooms, bathroom, separate WC, 2 reception rooms, kitchen with pantry, detached garage, approx. 60ft front garden, approx. 70ft westerly aspect rear garden, double glazing, gas radiator central heating, no onward chain.
This is a superb opportunity. A well-proportioned building constructed by Cooks in the 1950s to their Type 104 design, known colloquially as ‘The Dolls House’ and set within a row of properties of similar calibre, on a no-through road. Many of these properties have been enlarged considerably but this property remains unspoilt by crude extensions and offers the buyer the ability to update and expand to their own specifications, subject of course to any necessary consents.
The property overlooks a spinney at the front and is approached across gardens which have a frontage of about 40ft and a depth of about 60ft. The central hallway of the property provides access to the 2 reception rooms and the kitchen. Upstairs are 3 generous bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.
The property is close to Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve with its lake and wooded walks; and not far from the University campus which can be accessed by foot at the top of Beech Lane. The property lies in the catchment of Whiteknights Primary School and the shared Maiden Erlegh catchment. There are local shops available at The Parade on Silverdale Road with more extensive facilities at the Asda and Marks & Spencer complexes in Lower Earley.
Bus services in the area travel past the Royal Berkshire Hospital into Reading town centre where there is a mainline railway station with fast services to Paddington and also services to Waterloo running through Earley railway station. The M4 motorway can be joined either at Junction 11, where there is also the A33 south towards Basingstoke, or at Junction 10 where the centre of London lies about 40 miles and Heathrow airport about 28 miles.
