Situated a short stroll from Wokingham town centre is this beautifully presented two-bedroom period cottage which has the rare benefit of a home office or studio in the garden. Entering via a pretty front courtyard, the reception and dining room have been modernised to create a contemporary and spacious living area without compromising the period charm for which these cottages are known. The central staircase effortlessly floats to the first floor which allows the space to be used to maximum effect without any of the normal drawbacks associated with two smaller reception rooms. A notable feature of the living area is the wonderful log burner with timber mantle and bespoke cabinetry. The rear part of the space is home to a dining area which can easily seat eight for when dinner parties become the norm again but is equally comfortable at lending itself to a cosy dinner for two. Extra wide floorboards create warmth and character juxtaposed against a backdrop of a stylish and modern colour scheme throughout.
The kitchen continues the modern theme whilst heritage tiling, and colour palettes pay homage to the Victorian architecture for which the road is known. Storage is plentiful and the space has been thoughtfully designed for the budding home chef. A rare utility room is a welcome addition on the ground floor providing further storage and more importantly a safe-haven for muddy boots or paws after long walks.
The first floor of this charming house offers two double bedrooms, both smartly decorated and a bathroom. (First floor bathrooms are a rare commodity for cottages of this nature). If an incoming purchaser was so inclined, a large loft space could be easily converted subject to the normal consents.
Access from the front to the rear of the property is via shared passageway; a common and useful set up which benefits this mid terrace house. Special mention must be paid to the well-tended rear garden which has clearly been loved by the current owners. With a patio area for entertaining and the rest laid to lawn, the garden cries out for summer BBQ's and al fresco dining. At the end of the 80ft long garden is a home studio which is currently used as an office but would lend itself wonderfully to an artist studio, home gym or treatment room. Rather helpfully, this property - and studio - is already wired for ultrafast gigabit internet.
Wescott Road is situated within excellent school catchments, enjoys residents permit parking and is a hop and a skip away from the amenities of Wokingham town centre.
