DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A detached bungalow last sold and by Martin & Pole about 40 years ago.  An exceptional opportunity to purchase a property with such extensive grounds and the potential to extend – most other properties in Doles Lane are two-storey.  It is fair to comment the property would benefit from modernisation and improvement.

In a virtually traffic free location just two miles from Wokingham town centre.  Doles Lane is part unmade and part made up and sees very little through traffic.  Wokingham Railway Station offers services on the Reading to London (Waterloo) line and also the Reading to Guildford/Gatwick Line.  The M4 (J10) passes around the town and is readily accessible.  Wokingham has an enviable choice of Primary and Secondary Schools – there is shared entry for five Secondary Schools. 


This really is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a property with exceptional potential.
