    One of Wokingham's most striking properties, and just 300 yards from the buzz of the market town.

    This beautifully restored convent conversion has grand room sizes, high ceilings, and a south westerly garden with veranda for laid-back sunset-watching...

    In a slightly elevated position on the Easthampstead Road, Chapel Gate is set back in a private cluster of just four unique homes.

    Almost every inch of this home has been beautifully restored in 2016, with the Edwardian period features stripped back, then carefully replaced, to meet modern-day building and insulation standards.

    The end result is period home rich in character features to the fore, and modern building materials in the fabric of the build. Upgrades include high-performance glazing in the reproduction windows, modern insulation, re-wiring and re-plumbing - meaning its energy performance rating is on a par with modern homes.

    The gabled entrance porch, substantial front door and impressive hallway give the warmest of welcomes, and the real open fireplace suggests the hall is for more than just passing-through.

    The kitchen is fitted with bespoke handmade cabinetry and bar-stool island. With large bay window, an open fireplace and under-floor heating, this room is both warm and inviting.

    Appliances include induction hob, eye-level ovens, and integrated larder fridge & freezer. The work surfaces are heat resistant, there's 'on tap' boiling water, and a large capacity water softener.

    Separately, there's a discreet laundry cupboard with the necessary plumbing at the end of the hallway.

    The spacious living room has beautiful herringbone parquet flooring and a handsome real fire with ornate mantelpiece. This room is bathed in natural light from the large windows and French doors. Stepping out to the veranda, this terrace offers shaded seating, a perfect place for summer dining, and some shade for the living room.

    The formal dining room has the same parquet flooring, a statement vaulted ceiling, and French doors opening to the sunny garden and terrace.

    Upstairs the master bedroom has a tasteful range of bespoke storage, an open fireplace, and two windows (including one large bay). The first floor bathroom is spacious, with large window, tall ceiling, a shower enclosure and separate bath tub.

    Bedroom Two also has bespoke fitted storage, a real open fireplace, and architecturally striking ceilings.

    The top floor has a guest suite with fitted wardrobe storage and en-suite bathroom. There's also a good amount of accessible eaves storage.

    The south-westerly facing garden is low maintenance but well-stocked, has ambient lighting, sandstone terrace and is accessible through a side gate. Parking for three cars to the front, which is well-screened with 'Red Robin' bushes, iron railings and a low brick wall.

    > Mobile coverage 'likely good' on all major networks - Vodafone, EE, Three & O2 (source Ofcom)
    > Gas Central Heating

    A Few Words from Quarters
    "If you're looking to downsize, but don't want to compromise on room sizes, Chapel Gate delivers the substantial feel without the endless upkeep.

    Without a doubt, its proximity to the town centre with its bars, eateries, coffee shops, train station and assortment of retailers will make this a good choice for anyone wanting the easy lifestyle of town centre living.

    For dog-walkers, the King George V field is just over the road and, for a more energetic walk there's the nearby 'Ludgrove loop' - a woodland walk which can be accessed through nearby Gipsy Lane.

    We particularly love the ceiling heights (around 2.9m / 9' 6") downstairs, and the meticulous attention to detail taken during the renovation. There's too much to list here, but we'd be happy to share the detail on a viewing. Lastly, we understand there is a remaining NHBC building warranty left (10 years from February 2016)

    Please get in touch with Nick or Teresa at Quarters Estate Agents, Wokingham, for more details or to discuss viewing arrangements. This is a very special home, and we're looking forward to showing you around."
