SOMETIMES when you are looking to buy a house, the last place you should go is the house in which you are interested.
Perhaps the first thing to do, is to take a walk or a drive around the neighbourhood and ask some questions.
Is the area tidy and clean? What are the transport links like? How about the local facilities, shops, schools and doctor’s surgery?
If you take a stroll through Woosehill, you will be pleasantly surprised at the answers to these questions. If you are interested in buying a house in Dieppe Close, you will be even more pleasantly surprised at this delightful three-bedroom semi-detached family home.
For not only does it offer a well-presented family property, it is situated within one of the most sought-after streets in the area.
The house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac with an enclosed rear garden, two vital elements if you have young children. It is the sort of street where you can allow your little darlings out to play with friends in a safe, family-friendly neighbourhood.
On those cold winter days when we would all prefer to be inside, well this house has plenty of space for everyone to enjoy without cramping anyone’s style.
If the kitchen is the heart of a home, then this one is both well organised and functional. Everything you need is within arm’s reach and there is a handy breakfast bar for youngsters – or teenagers – to sit while listening to the latest chart hits.
The rest of the accommodation comprises a hallway, living room, conservatory, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a re-fitted family bathroom. I believe a conservatory is a blessing for any homeowner, with or without children. It provides an indoor/outdoor extra space to enjoy whatever the weather.
On the subject of outdoor space, the delightful garden is easily maintained and affords a pleasant get-away-from-it-all.
It is worth pointing out that the family bathroom has been completely re-fitted and to the highest standard. It is ideal for bath nights, whether they be on Sunday nights before Monday school, or for parents on any night they have free.
But what about the local area? Well, take a walk or drive around Woosehill and you’ll discover there are excellent local facilities nearby including both supermarket and doctor´s surgery.
Further up Northway there are attractive countryside walks accessed from Chestnut Avenue. The town and train station are approximately one-and-a-half miles away and the A329(M)/M4 can be reached either from the east of town or via Winnersh.
In all, this is the perfect family home and well worth booking a viewing as soon as possible.
It is offered to the market for £340,000 via the Wokingham branch of Martin and Co.
