Abundance of Light & Space
Spacious home with an abundance of light, high-end style, and super-flexible living space.
Nearby countryside walks, convenient for the market town of Wokingham and some of the best schools in Berkshire.
Remodelled and extended in 2015, the current owners set out to create a beautifully-spacious and contemporary home. The result is a visually-striking home which has been designed to harness natural light and give flexible and fabulous living space.
The entrance hall sets the tone with natural light from the front door glazing and shafts of light from the architectural window above on the landing. The statement staircase, double doors to the kitchen and engineered oak flooring create a grand, but welcoming, entrance.
Currently configured with four double bedrooms, four bathrooms and two dressing rooms, the layout could quite easily be adapted to create a five bedroom / four bathroom home. This home was designed to evolve with a family's changing needs, and has ample square footage (over 3,300) to allow this.
The expansive open plan kitchen gives yet more versatility for family life, relaxing and entertaining. With a large roof skylight, low-level units and light-reflecting quartz work-surfaces, this room has been designed to let light flow through the heart of the home. The patio door opening has been cleverly angled to capture the afternoon and evening sun.
With everyday dining and lounging taken care of in the open-plan kitchen, there are two additional reception rooms for quiet space. The large study could also be used as a downstairs guest bedroom as it's conveniently placed for the downstairs shower room. The lounge has French doors and a lovely wood-burning stove perfect for relaxing in winter evenings . Throughout the ground floor there is zonal underfloor heating .
The landing and upstairs feel particularly spacious with angled and high ceilings, a wide landing, and a cool crisp décor. The Master Suite has a Juliet balcony which overlooks the garden, a dressing room with sleek range of fitted storage, and an en-suite with underfloor heating and a triple shower enclosure.
The guest room has a range of fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathroom, and bedroom three has its own walk-in wardrobe which we are told has plumbing in place to convert into another en-suite bathroom if preferred. The fourth bedroom is double in size, and has large bespoke windows overlooking the frontage.
Set in a plot of just under one third of an acre, this home has a good degree of privacy and a lovely mature garden. The gently curved patio complements the lines of the house, and also serves to make the most of the sun throughout the seasons.
There's ample driveway parking and integral garage with automated door, a rendered outbuilding of approx 16m2, and a fully-fitted utility room.
This home is just under a 15 minute' walk to Wokingham town and a little bit longer to the train station, with its historic market and exciting new retailers, coffee bars, cinema and restaurants. There are nearby country walks across Gorrick Wood, Sand Martins golf course and along Luckley Road through to Ludgrove School. Wokingham is well-known for its well-performing independent and State schools (see the school-checker tool on the map)
Quarters Residential's View
The owners' vision and meticulous design - which includes high vaulted ceilings, clever window placement and attention to light and flow - has resulted in this highly versatile and energising living space.
It's hard to appreciate the scale and the detailing without taking a look around, but this home will excite different people for different reasons. We particularly like the finishing touches such as powered black-out blinds to the front windows, tilt and swing window openings, and premium bathroom fittings. Although it's a four bedroom home, its proportions are on par with many five bedroom homes, and it promises to be a wonderful home for its new owners.
Please speak to Nick or Teresa for more details, or to arrange your viewing.
