This large, three-bedroom, second floor apartment forms part of a converted manor house occupying an enviable position on a private road close to Wokingham town centre. Having undergone an extensive refurbishment programme by the current owner, the property offers well-balanced lateral accommodation which is flooded with natural light.
The open-plan kitchen and reception room has been cleverly designed to take advantage of the south and westerly facing windows to create a bright entertaining and socialising space whilst retaining a wonderful sense of charm and intimacy. There is plenty of space for a large table in the dining area. The master bedroom is an exceptionally large and square room (and certainly much bigger than most seen in this type of property). A further double bedroom is located across the hallway and overlooks the manicured gardens. A third room could be used as a bedroom, but given the recent shift towards home-working, it lends itself perfectly for use as a home office.
The grounds of Mertonford extend to just short of two acres and are communal for the residents of the building, proving a peaceful sanctuary for relaxation or a great spot for a picnic during warmer months. A private garage is located at the front of the property along with off-street parking.
Mertonford was built in 1896 for Henry Bilson Blandy, having being designed by GW Webb. This historic building retains many of its period features and fully deserves the title of a hidden gem, offering an incoming purchaser the opportunity to buy a charming and historically-important home just a short stroll from Wokingham town centre.
