    Chain free. Set in nearly 2.5 acres of private grounds, an exceptionally versatile home comprising two distinct, but connected living quarters. This makes a super-spacious family home with some fabulous entertaining space, but also has the ideal layout for multi-generational living, older teens, or overnight guests.

    Despite its under-stated frontage, Oaklands is a secluded and substantial 5-6 bedroom home of nearly 5,000 square feet, with scope to adapt, extend, or enjoy the versatile space it has to offer. The garden is quite special, with space for garden parties, sports, cultivating crops or - with consents - adding a swimming pool. Not overlooked, and in a peaceful semi-rural setting near the borders of Finchampstead and Eversley, if you're looking for spacious accommodation, excellent parking and sizeable land, we recommend reading on...

    The kitchen in the main house features a large central island, granite worktops, and electric under floor heating. Fitted with four Siemens built-in ovens, a separate gas range cooker, and bar seating for six or more, this space is designed for some serious cooking and entertaining!

    For larger gatherings, the split-level dining & reception rooms take entertaining, quite literally, to another level. This super space enjoys magnificent views of the garden, with two sets of timber bifold doors and a large elevated balcony. For the summer months, there's an outside spiral staircase to the patio and lawns, and for winter months there's a wood-burning stove and modern inglenook. Hidden behind doors there's a former dumb waiter & chute (which could be re-commissioned)

    The Master suite is in a world of its own, with a dressing room spanning over 7 metres, and a luxury en-suite with tub, twin basins, and large shower enclosure.

    The main house also includes an integral garage / gym, cloakroom and study.

    The oak central hallway has split-level stairs to a single-storey suite of versatile rooms - featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, utility, kitchen, living room and dining room with fireplace. Currently connected to the main house, this could easily be configured to provide a large annex with four or five bedrooms. Alternatively, two bedrooms, bathroom and utility could be retained as part of the main house (creating a two bedroom, two reception room annex).

    This annexed part of the house also benefits from a private, enclosed side garden.

    The hallway gives access to a second, double, integral garage, and there's driveway parking for numerous cars.

    Oaklands will inspire those who love nature - with mature border trees, diverse wildlife, and fruit-bearing trees (including apples, pears, cherries and plums). The gardens are also ideal for summer entertaining, with large patio, pergola, and plenty of space for outdoor dining, marquees and, of course, it's an absolute pets' paradise!

    Outbuildings include a large workshop and garage / shed for machinery etc.

    For those wishing to remodel / extend the internal living space, there is historic planning permission to convert the integral double garage to habitable space. The plans also made provision to erect a new double garage and car port to the rear of the property. (Application number 160578).

    * Superfast broadband speed availability - Download speeds up to 80 Mbps, Upload speeds up to 20 Mbps.

    Mobile phone coverage 'good' on EE, Three, O2, and Vodafone networks (source Ofcom).


    A Few Words from Quarters

    "This home is something of a 'wild card' for us! We usually have a good idea of the type of buyer a home will appeal to, but then along comes Oaklands and throws out the rule book...!

    We're thinking it'll appeal to keen gardeners, horsey-folks, anyone with lively dogs, property developers, blended families, parents with older teens / university students, those wanting to build or pool or tennis court. anyone looking for an income stream (guest house or AirBnB), someone with elderly relatives, corporate folk who need entertaining space (but separate guest accommodation) or - none of the above, but thinking 'one day, when we're older...'

    Whoever buys this fabulous home will undoubtedly enjoy all the versatile space & wonderful green surroundings in a peaceful and unspoilt part of Wokingham. Please get in touch with Nick or Teresa of Quarters Estate Agents Wokingham, for more information or to request a viewing - we're looking forward to showing you around!"
