The Gardens:  The property has a frontage to Bearwood Road of XX with an established hedge which leads to a driveway running to the garage at the rear of the property.  There is a beech hedge on one side and a laurel hedge on the other side, which then becomes fencing on both sides.  There is a patio adjoining the lounge and dining room.  The main area of garden is lawn with fruit trees, other ornamental trees and bamboo.  The area at the end of the garden is now somewhat overgrown but lends itself to provide additional garden space and ensures privacy from neighbouring properties.  There are silver birch trees and further bamboo at the end of the garden as well as other established trees.

Town and Country Planning:  The property is within the administration area of  Wokingham Borough Council.  We have not made any planning enquiries but suggest this site is suitable for redevelopment for at least one house and possibly two.

NB. 49 Bearwood Road (opposite the entrance to The Lilacs)  was a bungalow and is now being redeveloped with two detached houses.  A buyer will  need to make a personal decision whether they wish to build one substantially larger property on this site and there is the precedent of 75 Bearwood Road or whether they wish to explore the possibility of two smaller properties as has been permitted just a few doors along the road.
