Sturges Road, Wokingham
6 bedroom detached house for sale
Substantial Home with Garden Studio
Tastefully-presented, and with beautifully-arranged living space, this period home offers everything a growing family could wish for.
Part of the Murdoch Road Conservation Area, and an easy stroll to Wokingham's diverse town centre, this property is within easy reach of some of its excellent schools, green spaces and train station.
Downstairs comprises a welcoming and practical entrance hall, with internal porch lobby for boots, smart tiled flooring and ample cloak storage.
The stylish kitchen has been cleverly enhanced by the addition of an orangery-style family room. This makes the whole kitchen space super-practical for younger families, and also brings the benefits of informal dining, garden views and natural sky light. For sunny days, the bi-fold patio doors can be flung open to create a seamless step into the garden, and for cooler evenings it's beautifully equipped with under-floor heating.
The kitchen itself has been fitted with contrasting cabinets with twin wine chillers, dishwasher, integrated ovens, hob and sleek pop-up power sockets. The under-floor heating, quartz worktops and island breakfast bar will get family mornings off to a good start.
For more a more formal setting, the drawing room's high ceiling, large sash bay window and garden door are in-keeping with the property's heritage. The hardwood flooring, chandeliers and period-style radiators make for a warm evening atmosphere.
The study is tucked away from the family hub, and provides a calm setting with its sash bay window, neutral tones, wooden flooring and period-style radiator.
For entertaining, the dining room sits adjacent to the kitchen (with cooking clutter out of view), and also flows through from the entrance hall and cloakroom.
The bedrooms, which are arranged over the first and second floors, are all double in size - yet each has a distinctly different feel. The master suite, with garden views, has a traditional fireplace and a well-lit dressing room. Its large en-suite bathroom has twin basins, a 'pebble' bath and double shower enclosure.
Bedroom two has an en-suite shower and walk-through clothes storage. Across the landing, the other first floor bedrooms are generous in size with bay windows and restful tones. The family bathroom has a fresh feel with its cool white & blue theme, large window and tiled flooring. With low-level bath, shower enclosure, vanity storage and heated towel radiator this space is practical too.
The second floor bedrooms are ideal spaces for older children and house-guests. With beam-work and roof windows, these rooms enjoy natural light and appealing design. The first room has beautiful timber flooring, a walk-through closet and spacious en-suite shower room. Both rooms have ample eaves storage, and the second bedroom has an en-suite toilet and basin.
The versatile timber garden studio, with Sky dish and power, has multiple uses as an office, gym, studio, cinema or craft-room.
The laundry room is fitted with a smart range of units, utility sink, two boilers, under-floor heating, extractor and clothes airer. The integral garage houses a large Megaflow tank and additional parking.
