This is, quite simply, a really lovely family house being sold for the first time since new. It was constructed by Gough Cooper approximately 60 years ago and extended on the ground floor at a later date. The property is very clean, tidy and well maintained but the new owner will now want to carry out some modernisations and maybe extend the property further, subject to any necessary consents. The rear gardens are a particular feature, offering a high degree of seclusion and extending to approximately 50ft in a westerly direction with a width across the back of about 60ft.
The location is superb, being only a few hundred yards from Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve in one direction and Aldryngton and Maiden Erlegh schools in the other direction. There are local shops at The Parade on Silverdale Road with more extensive shopping facilities at the Asda and Marks & Spencer complexes in Lower Earley.
Regular bus services in the area provide access into Reading town centre, where there is a main line railway station with fast services to Paddington, services on the Elizabeth Line and services to Waterloo, running through the nearby Earley Railway Station.
The M4 motorway can be accessed either at Junction 11, where there is also the A33 south to Basingstoke, as well as Green Park and its new railway station; or at Junction 10 where London then lies approximately 40 miles away and Heathrow Airport approximately 28 miles away.
Estate Agents Note: The sitting room extension has previously undergone ground stabilisation works (resin injection) following movement assessed to have been caused by vegetation induced clay shrinkage. The main house was not affected. Documentation including certificate of structural adequacy is available upon request.
