Suitable for extension, subject to planning
DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A very popular style of house believed to date from the late 1950s and forming part of the very desirable Crouch Estate, comprising mainly Rances Lane, Froghall Drive, Priest Avenue and parts of London Road. The house has the benefit of a single storey extension with pitch roof to the rear – and lends itself to further extension, both at ground floor and first floor level. Indeed the staircase is on a sidewall adjoining the garage and many other similar properties have been extended over the garage with the existing window opening providing easy access for a first floor extension. When the property was purchased in 1997, the Seller identified it had been underpinned and there have been no apparent signs of further movement during the past 23 years.
Wokingham Town Centre is no more than one mile, with its good range of shops, restaurants and cafes with the “anchor store” being Waitrose. The redevelopment is close to completion and comprises a number of shops, restaurants/cafés and a cinema. Further regeneration on the edge of the town includes the building of a new swimming pool. Wokingham enjoys an exceedingly popular location, with the M4 passing just to the north of the town and the M3 south at Bagshot. Wokingham station offers services on the Reading to London (Waterloo line) and also Reading to Guildford/Gatwick. From Reading station there are fast services to London (Paddington) and the originally planned Crossrail Service for 2018 will offer connections from both Reading and Twyford. This is now due to open in 2022.

Two Garden Sheds and Greenhouse
The Gardens: These are a very important feature.There is a low retaining brick wall at the front and gates leading to the driveway with paviors and parking for at least three cars. There are well stocked borders around the front and side boundary. Pedestrian access on either side of the house leads to the rear garden which is well fenced with established concrete posts and inset fencing on one side and the rear with the other boundary also well defined. Close to the house there is a patio and a further patio at the end of the garden adjoiningthe greenhouse and two garden sheds. The second of the two garden sheds has electricity, as does the greenhouse.
