DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A two story detached house constructed in the mid-1980s by Beazer Homes and being sold for the first time since new. The owner has carried out some improvements during those years including the installation of double-glazed windows and replacing the boiler. A conservatory which was originally built in the 1990s has been replaced just in the last year or so. The property is well presented, clean and tidy throughout but perhaps a little dated now and offers the opportunity for the buyer to make improvements to their own taste and possibly extend, subject to any necessary consents.

Strand Way is one of the more established parts of Lower Earley and has always been popular. There is a children’s playground at the end of the road and local shops nearby at Maiden Lane shopping centre. More extensive facilities are available at the Asda and Marks & Spencer complexes. It lies within the catchment area of Radstock Primary school and the shared Maiden Erlegh/ Bulmershe/ Forest Secondary schools, and is just over a mile from the University campus. Bus services in the area provide access into Reading town centre where there is a main line railway station with fast services to Paddington as well as services to Waterloo running through Earley and Winnersh Triangle railway stations. The M4 motorway can be joined either at Junction 11, by Green Park, where there is also the A33 south towards Basingstoke, or at Junction 10 where the centre of London lies about 40 miles and Heathrow airport about 20 miles away.
