Originally a detached bungalow understood to have been built in the 1920’s or early 1930’s. The property is believed to have been split into two flats in the 1970s and then later remodelled into two semi-detached bungalows. This property was extended in approximately 2015 to provide the current accommodation. A gas connection and new boiler was installed at this time.
It is an interesting and unusual property with a particularly good-sized garden which extends to the side of the property by approximately 125ft. Immediately at the rear of the property is the railway cutting. This can be seen in the video. Planning consent (160116) was previously approved for the erection of a detached garage with new vehicular access. There may be further potential subject to planning.
The property lies in the shared Maiden Erlegh/ Forest/ Bulmershe secondary schools’ catchment and Earley St Peter’s Primary School catchment. There is a local shop close by with further shops at the Three Tuns Crossroads and more extensive facilities at Woodley precinct or at the Asda and Marks & Spencer complexes in Lower Earley.
Bus services in the general area provide access to Reading town centre and station, where there is the Elizabeth Line, services to Paddington and also services to Waterloo, running through the nearby Earley Railway Station.
The M4 motorway can be joined at Junction 10 where London then lies approximately 40 miles away and Heathrow Airport approximately 28 miles away.
