Off Heathlands Road, Wokingham
5 bedroom detached house for sale
Semi-Rural & Spacious Home
Found in a quiet lane along Heathlands Road, this spacious family home provides a peaceful setting and plenty of scope to adapt as family needs change.
Deaconfield House is a rewarding find for those looking for space, privacy and decent-sized rooms.
Each of the four principal bedrooms could accommodate King-size (or even Emperor) beds, and there is scope to convert the current office into a large, fifth, double bedroom.
The main reception rooms are all of generous sizes, with a wonderful fireplace, interior windows and bay window in the living room. The dining room opens directly to the conservatory, and a second set of doors gives access to a covered terrace - ideal for barbecues and buffets.
The kitchen and breakfast room are naturally zoned by the L-shaped design and the contrast of the striking vaulted ceiling of the fitted kitchen. With natural timber units, stone floor tiles, Butler's-style sink, range cooker and practical cabinetry, this kitchen has been designed for family life and grand-scale entertaining.
The bedrooms are arranged with a good balance of bathrooms, including two en-suites. The two bedrooms without en-suites could easily be adapted to have their own bathrooms, although the large family bathroom and cloakroom are conveniently placed to serve these bedrooms well.
The conservatory, which is over seven metres wide, is aproned by timber decking and overlooks the secluded garden and grounds.
There is a cosy additional room which has a stained glass window and could lend itself to yoga, crafts, gaming, nursery, study, or a place to focus.
This home's versatility could extend to converting the layout to provide a self-contained annexe, nanny quarters or perhaps space for business clients (without impacting family life).
The owners inform us that Deaconfield House has, over recent months, benefitted from considerable re-furbishment work, including carpets, wood flooring, electrical upgrades, plasterwork, screeding, replacement conservatory in 2018 and, in 2016, replacement double-glazing windows and doors,
The plot, which is around 0.75 acres, includes two double gated entrances and driveways, a brick-built detached garage, lawns, mature trees and hedging, elevated decking and a timber shed.
Deaconfield House has two separate gated driveways (one serving the garage), and may have been intended to create two freeholds as per the titles' structure. There may be potential, subject to planning consents and buyer due diligence, to build a separate home in the grounds.
The lane is a quiet no-through road for traffic, so tends to see just dog-walkers, cyclists, joggers and horses, with the occasional neighbours' car.
There are numerous nearby walks and footpaths, including Gorrick Woods just across Heathlands Road with miles of trails for hiking, dog-walking, horse-riding or cycling, the tranquil Heathlake woodland, Holme Grange Craft Village, Grays pick-your-own Farm (with future development planned as a superb sports hub), East Berks Golf Club and some wonderful dog-walking and hacking countryside.
Within easy reach of Wokingham's superb schools including; St Teresa's Catholic Primary (OFSTED rated Outstanding), Wescott Infant School (Outstanding), St Sebastian's CofE Primary and All Saints Primary (Good). There is also the newly-opened Floreat Montague Park School. For older pupils, the property is in catchment of Edgbarrow Secondary School & Sixth Form (Outstanding) and the sought-after Holt and Bohunt Schools. For the independent sector, choose from a selection of the country’s best including Holme Grange (nearby on Heathlands Road), Ludgrove (school of Princes William & Harry), Wellington College and Reddam House.
