SOME house viewings can be over in five minutes.
A quick tour of the property and a glance at the garden is all that is needed to take in what is on offer.
But if you arrange a visit to this Spencers Wood home – and you really should – then be prepared for a longer stay.
For this is one property that will surprise and delight as you go from room to room with even more delights outside.
Firstly, there is the location on Hyde End Road which means you are close enough to Wokingham to utilise its many benefits, but far enough away to enjoy a more peaceful environment.
A gated front entrance is a welcome addition, providing both security and elegance. You drive into a very ample front yard with plenty of space for several cars and a double garage with electric doors, for even more.
This is a handsome detached building with instant kerb appeal, five bedrooms and, you will soon discover, a south facing plot of circa a quarter of an acre.
It’s always nice to appreciate the design the previous homeowner has put into a house and that is certainly evident here.
The only word to describe the open plan kitchen/dining/family room is ‘charming.’
You can just imagine sitting here with family and friends on all occasions, but especially so on special occasions such as birthdays or other gatherings.
The vaulted ceiling and impressive fuel burner provide added charm truly making this the heart of the home.
It’s also worth noting the room is fully air-conditioned.
Also on the ground floor is a pleasant cloakroom, sitting room and separate dining room and of course the utility.
To the first floor the master bedroom enjoys a lovely outlook down the gardens and has an en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms and family bathroom.
If you can tear yourself away from the delights inside, be prepared for even more outside.
This area has been as cleverly designed as the interior.
There is a patio area, a large lawn, decking and even an above ground swimming pool.
What’s not to like!
It really a space that can be enjoyed all year round.
So, if you want to view a lovely family house in a rural but not isolated area, then make an appointment to view as soon as possible.
And take the time to enjoy.
This property has a guide price of £699,500.
