SOME people only remember the 60s for Woodstock, flower power and smash hits from a band called The Beatles.
But the decade also brought a bit of a rock ‘n’ roll to house building techniques and styles.
One of the most innovative was the detached chalet style residence which was popular across the country. This design was a welcome change to the familiar back to back or Victorian terrace.
Now, if you take a stroll to Scots Drive, you’ll come across a splendid example of the best the chalet style can offer. And, situated just over a mile from Wokingham, it’s not even far out, man.
Believed to have been constructed during the late 1960’s, the property has the benefit of gas fired central heating (radiators) and double-glazed windows throughout.
But before you step inside, step back to enjoy just how pretty this deceptively large property really is.
Situated in a desirable residential estate, the house is within the catchment area for the Hawthorns Primary School and a shared Secondary School catchment area for Emmbrook, Forest and Holt.
The clean lines and well-ordered rooms are a hallmark of the chalet type house and there is also the benefit of a large rear garden.
On the ground floor you’ll find the kitchen/breakfast room with handmade oak kitchen units and patio doors opening out on to the garden.
The lounge has a lovely feature fireplace also with patio doors
opening out onto the garden. The dining room overlooks the front garden. The ground floor further benefits from a utility room and cloakroom
Stroll up to the first floor, you’ll find four good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom while outside is a garage with driveway space for several cars enclosed by a wooden gate.
To the rear, is a private garden affording a high degree of privacy with a wooden shed and two-storey playhouse. If you have a little paperwork to catch up with, you’ll love the stylish office approached from the garden which has power and lighting as well as natural lighting via the skylights.
With an asking price of £610,000, this is one house certain to go to the top of the charts.
As The Beatles might say: you’ll love it, yeah, yeah, yeah.
