DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: We understand this may have been one of the first houses built on the popular Crouch Estate including London Road, parts of Rances Lane, Froghall Drive and Priest Avenue. Indeed this may have been one of the Show Houses with a larger than average garden – there’s a surprise! In the same family for over fifty years there have been some extensions including to the dining room and kitchen and a larger than average double attached garage - the original garage has been converted to a fourth bedroom and a shower room. This is a popular style of house in an exceptional location. Close to the junction with Rances Lane and set back from the London Road behind a belt of trees it is close to St. Crispin’s School and local shops. Wokingham town centre is within about half a mile including the railway station with services on the Reading to London (Waterloo line) and also services to Guildford/Gatwick. Fast services on the London Paddington line and in due course the new cross rail service will determine at Reading. Twyford Station to the north also offers services on the Paddington line and will include cross rail.
The opportunity to further extend and improve the accommodation will undoubtedly appeal to many prospective purchasers with the 80’ approx. south facing rear garden. It is likely any carefully planned extension will reflect in a significant increase to the market value. The opportunity therefore exists either perhaps just to make certain improvements to the existing accommodation to suit a new owner’s taste and requirements or with some remodelling a considerable extension is possible – subject, of course, to planning.
The accommodation comprises:
On the First Floor:
Bedroom 1: two double built-on wardrobes, radiator.
Bedroom 2: two single wardrobes, eaves cupboard, radiator.
Bedroom 3: two double built-in wardrobes, radiator.

There is pedestrian access beside the house to the rear garden, which is laid mainly to lawn and is generally quite well sheltered and fenced. It enjoys a southerly aspect.
