Property description

Chestnut Avenue is one of Wokingham’s most sought after addresses thanks to its leafy tree lined non estate location all within easy reach of the town centre.
The property itself was built almost 100 years ago, a pretty dark brick construction with Tudor style timbers and sympathetic extensions that have created this superb versatile family home in an idyllic setting.
The main house sits behind hardwood electric gates and leads to the generous block paved driveway with space for a fleet of vehicles.
A solid hardwood front door oozing character draws you into the Entrance Hall, with turning staircase to the first floor and understairs cupboard. On the right hand side of the property is the dual aspect Living Room with feature open fireplace with stained glass windows above drawing in natural light with the leaded glazed window to the front and French doors with matching glazed slips to either side leading to the garden.
A formal Dining Room offers access to the garden through French doors, a fireplace and door to the Kitchen.
Also off the Entrance Hall is a Downstairs Cloakroom with white sanitaryware, tiled flooring and feature wall. There is a separate coats cupboard for storage and door to the Study with large front aspect window and built in bookcase.
The Kitchen has a unique layout with one section comprising sink unit, range of units complimented by granite worksurfaces with integrated dishwasher, spotlighting and tiled floor with door to Pantry area and Utility.
The main Kitchen area is a large open plan space with a separate hardwood door that leads to the front drive with glazed side panels, along with a pedestrian door to the integral garage for convenience. The Kitchen has an array of fitted units with a Range oven with stainless steel splashback and extractor over. The room is flooded with light as it has many external windows along with a large roof lantern that sits above the feature central island with storage below, matching granite work surfaces and lots of space for informal dining, with French doors close by that lead to the patio and garden.
Further doors lead to the extension that was initially created as an individual Annexe. The central Reception Room has a vaulted ceiling with galleried landing above with stairs leading to the first floor Bedrooms and offering an under stairs storage cupboard. The room is flooded with natural light from the full height windows to the Eastern wall with velux windows to the other side. Solid oak flooring, spotlighting and exposed beams provide the room with lots of character with a door that leads through to the Sitting Room. This space was formally a Kitchen/Diner for the Annexe and could be easily converted back. Currently it’s a bright triple aspect Sitting Room with doors to the patio.
Upstairs in the Eastern wing of the property are two generous Double Bedrooms, Bedroom Two has views to the front with a Dormer window to the side offering viewings over the Lake, and benefits from an Ensuite Bathroom. Bedroom Three is a triple aspect room with exposed timbers and fully vaulted ceiling with a door that leads to a modern Ensuite with white sanitaryware.
Upstairs in the main house there are Four Double Bedrooms.
The Main Bedroom has a full range of built in wardrobes along with a walk in dressing room with double doors that lead to the Ensuite Bathroom with its freestanding feature bath and matching white sanitaryware. This room also benefits from French doors that lead to a private South facing sun terrace.
There are three further double bedrooms, the largest one offering a dual aspect with the others having south facing rear aspect views.
The Family Bathroom has been refitted and comprises an enclosed Bath with separate walk in shower and twin wash hand basin and wc.
Outside the private rear garden is well screened offering an excellent degree of privacy. There is a heated outdoor Swimming Pool with large patio area and a superb covered entertaining area with further covered seating area splitting the formal gardens from the pool area. There is gated side access that leads round to side gate.
Strolling across the hardstanding you are greeted by another gate and split rail fence leading to the generous private plot of land with Lakeside views. The private Windmill pond is surrounded by private residences with no public access making it a tranquil haven to retreat to, and a real asset to the property.
