DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A Potton oak framed house adapted and extended, with the interior to the owner’s demanding standard. The kitchen and en suite bathroom have recently been refitted with the kitchen expertly designed and fitted by Berkshire Kitchens and Bathrooms. Throughout the house there has been every attention to detail, with all space well utilized, combining to make this a home of exceptional quality and set in beautiful landscaped gardens. The accommodation on the first floor originally included four bedrooms and two bathrooms/shower rooms (one en suite) but is now adapted to provide a larger master bedroom. The second doorway from the landing remains, so the property could be quite easily reconfigured to offer four first floor bedrooms. There have been two extensions to the ground floor. The first being the breakfast room/informal dining room approached from the kitchen, with a link now occupied as an office that leads to a magnificent former conservatory which is now “a proper room” and which we have described as the garden room. Apart from perhaps cold winter evenings when you might enjoy the coal effect gas fire in the timbered living room, you would otherwise live in this garden room to enjoy and fully appreciate the gardens. The recently refitted bespoke kitchen is a work of art and combines the character of the property with a fabulous kitchen. The accommodation is complemented by a conversion of the garage to provide a studio. Subject to planning, there may be other opportunities to enlarge the property at ground floor and possibly first floor level.
Willow Cottage forms the part of Watmore Lane that is now a cul de sac – so no passing traffic. Within a few minutes walk, there are two primary schools, local shops, bus services passing along the Reading Road and the Forest School Academy (11- 18 years). Winnersh station offers services on the Reading to London, Waterloo line with a connection at Wokingham offering services to Guildford/Gatwick. The A329M, about two miles, provides access to the M4 (Junction 10) and via a series of mainly dual carriageways, the M3 just to the south of Bracknell at Bagshot. Winnersh is an important strategically placed centre between Reading and Wokingham and well placed for other important towns including Maidenhead and Slough to the north and Basingstoke and Camberley to the South. One of the quite exceptional amenities available to the people of Winnersh is Dinton Pastures Country Park – which is within walking distance. It offers lovely walks around the lakes, fishing and boating opportunities.
