An attractive, individual detached house believed to have been constructed in the 1930s and largely unspoiled by crude modernisations.

Generously proportioned grounds with a particularly wide frontage could provide significant potential for enlargement, subject to any necessary consents. The front gardens allow parking for several cars and the property is being sold with no onward chain.

The house sits amongst other individual older style properties in a popular residential area close to the A4, A3290, Suttons and Thames Valley Business Parks. There are good local shopping facilities with a Marks & Spencer Food Hall nearby and Woodley precinct a little further away.

The M4 motorway can be joined via Junction 10 where London then lies about 40 miles away and Heathrow airport about 20 miles away.

Reading town centre is easily accessed where there is a wide range of leisure and retail facilities, as well as a mainline railway station with fast services to Paddington as well as services to other parts of the country. The Cross Rail link is expected to open at Reading.

12. Only offers of a non-variable nature will be considered.

13. The vendor reserves the right not to accept the highest, or any, offer made.
