DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  Constructed about 60 years ago by Gough Cooper to their T1 design, known colloquially as ‘the cottage style’, this is the largest and most popular of the semi-detached designs on the estate.  Many of the properties of this style have been enlarged by way of ground and first floor extensions, as well as loft conversions.  It may be therefore that similar potential exists for this property, subject of course to any necessary consents. 

The location is particularly convenient with regular bus routes along the road leading past the University, Royal Berkshire Hospital and into the town centre where there is a main line railway station with services to various parts of the country including fast services to Paddington and services to Waterloo running through the nearby Earley railway station. The property is close by to Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve and there are doctors and dental surgeries within the area.  As well as the ever-popular state schools, there are private and grammar schools within reasonable distance. The M4 motorway can be joined either at Junction 11, by Green Park, 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 20 miles away.
