Property description

Wingmore Lodge in Rose Street is one of Wokingham’s most striking Grade II listed properties offering versatile accommodation over five floors.  

Approached by four stone steps within its own courtyard and surrounded by iron railings, it is a detached double fronted brick building with a hipped tile roof.  The property boasts a classic exterior with refined architectural details including large sash windows to the front which face down Rose Street towards the church, forming an important visual element to the southwest end of Rose Street, and can be seen along the whole length of the street from the northeast.

The interior showcases a tasteful blend of modern amenities mixed with many original features including exposed beams, architraves, stripped wood floors and period fireplaces. 

It epitomises versatility with many rooms that can be customised to suit your lifestyle. Create a home office, a cozy reading nook, or a playroom for the little ones – the possibilities are endless which explains its rich history.

It was the former Gamekeepers Lodge for Windsor Park and was once the home of the well known Gadd family - Isaiah Gadd being an eminent businessman of the town during the late 19th Century, operating several business. These included a coal business, antiques and furniture shop and a removals company that latterly became E W Reeves & Co and eventually was purchased by Bishops Move. In more recent years the property was one of the UK’s biggest non-gambling poker clubs and a women’s boutique clothing store. 

Upon entering through the original hardwood front door that could tell a story or two of the guests it has welcomed over the years, you are immediately struck by the sense of charm and character.

There are two spacious double-aspect Reception Rooms both providing ample space for entertaining guests or enjoying family time.

Stairs lead to the lower ground floor where there is a refitted Kitchen with an abundance of character including exposed beams and brickwork. Fitted with a range of units under an expanse of solid wooden work surfaces there is a Belfast sink and Range cooker. There is a utility cupboard and further bespoke cabinetry creating a pantry store. 

A separate Reception Room offers versatility with a door giving access to the outside.  It is currently used as a gym space but could be a Dining Room due to its location. Also on this floor, there is a downstairs WC.

On the first floor there is a spacious double aspect Bedroom with fireplace and stripped wood flooring. En-Suite facilities for this room include a shower room and separate toilet. Across the landing is a second large double bedroom with built in storage either side of a fireplace.

The second floor consists of two further Double Bedrooms and a smaller Bedroom which is currently being used as a Dressing Room but could also be used as a Home Office/Study. These rooms are serviced by a three-piece bathroom with exposed beams and freestanding claw foot bath as well as a separate Shower.

A further staircase leads to the top floor, which completes the accommodation. This large double aspect Bedroom has beautiful exposed timbers and roof top views.

Wingmore Lodge is more than just a residence; it's an embodiment of refined living in the heart of Wokingham. This property offers a unique opportunity to experience the best of both classic and contemporary lifestyles.

Wokingham is well-connected, making it a convenient base for both commuting and exploring the surrounding picturesque countryside, offering opportunities for scenic walks, cycling, and outdoor pursuits. The town also has its own train station, providing direct services to London and other nearby towns. Additionally, the M4 motorway is easily accessible, allowing for convenient travel by car.
