Columba Gardens, Wokingham
5 bedroom detached house for sale
Presented in excellent order throughout, this spacious home has been designed with the modern family in mind.
Columba Gardens has a welcoming tiled entrance hall, with a glass stair balustrade to create an open and inviting home-coming. The glazed internal double doors to the principal reception rooms give the property a wonderful sense of light and space.
The spacious kitchen/diner, which opens to the garden with fully-openable bi-fold doors, is fully equipped with composite work-surfaces and ample storage. Finer touches include soft-close units, integrated AEG appliances, including a gas hob, double oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and water softener. The layout affords space for both a large sofa and dining table and chairs - ideal for everyday meals.
For quieter mealtimes, the dining room creates a tranquil setting with a double-door entrance and French doors which open to the patio.
The living room, which also has French doors to the patio, provides good configuration for sofas and TV, but also has a stylish glass-fronted wood-burner to create a homely atmosphere. Separately, there is a study (or family room) with ample room for homework and home-workers alike.
On the practical side, there is a well-designed utility room which has housing for an integrated washing machine, dryer, plus plenty of storage and workspace. With a door leading to the side passage, it’s easy to use this as a ‘boots off’ entrance for the kids, and nip to the garden with washing etc.
Upstairs, all bedrooms are generous in size, with a statement master suite of over 20 square metres. This room is sunny and spacious, with ample fitted storage, thermostatically controlled temperature, and a beautiful tiled en-suite with double shower enclosure.
The guest suite enjoys views over the garden and a tiled en-suite with double shower enclosure. The family bathroom is modern, spacious and luxurious with bath and separate shower enclosure.
The garden is well-maintained with full width patio across the French doors and bi-fold door, and side access to a large driveway and front garden.
The photovoltaic solar panel system means the new owners can enjoy no-cost electricity consumption, with an additional quarterly earning from the National Grid feed-in-tariff until 2035. The current owners inform us this has generated an annual income of around £1,100 per year, and the property will continue to generate its own electricity (beyond the feed-in tariff period). For electric car owners, an EV charger is included in the sale, and the current owners have enjoyed no fuel costs over this time.
The property overlooks a small green and is set in a pleasant neighbourhood near the end of a no-through road.
There are plenty of nature walks and treks to explore locally, and a walk to Wokingham town is around 25 minutes.
