2 Bed Apartment Sold Subject to Contract

The Croft, Pages Croft, Wokingham - £365,000



  • Peaceful setting in no through road
  • Edge of Town Centre
  • Lovely communal grounds
  • No Chain

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:A ground floor apartment in a two storey development of eight broadly speaking similar  apartments with four served from each communal entrance.  The property dates from the 1960’s and has the extra feeling of space including perhaps slightly higher ceilings that one would associate with a development of that era.  Undertaken by Thomas Lawrence a highly regarded local house builder there is a feeling of quality and spaciousness rarely found in a more modern development.  The property would benefit from some expenditure but has all the basic ingredients to provide a fine high quality home – indeed it may suit someone looking for a bungalow – bungalows in Wokingham town centre are, of course, quite expensive! 


 Pages Croft is just over half a mile from the town centre which offers a good range of restaurants and cafés and some independent shops as well as one of two High Street chains and two Supermarkets and a convenience store.  Wokingham is popular largely because of its excellent communication links.  The A329M is within two miles and provides easy access to the M4 (junction 10) and the M3 to the south of Bracknell at Bagshot.  Wokingham station is on the Reading to Waterloo line and also offers services to Guildford/Gatwick.  From Reading or Twyford to the north there are train services on the Paddington line and from May 2022 services on the new Crossrail line.
