The Terrace, Wokingham

Property description

Situated in an elevated position in the centre of the market town of Wokingham, The Old House is a spectacular Grade-II listed masterpiece.  Located in a commanding position yet set back off the road, it is just moments from the station and the town centre market square.

Dating back to the Mid 15th Century, with a unique and endearing history, the current custodians of the property have enjoyed sympathetically restoring and maintaining many of the home's original features in order to keep it true to the character and style of the period.  They have also incorporated a breath-taking ground floor Kitchen and Reception Room which is luxuriously appointed throughout, creating a versatile space for modern day living  convenience.

Despite its central position the property has a surprisingly 'country' feel - the architecture, layout, grand extension and generous private rear gardens give the sense of being in a country mansion rather than a town centre property, combining a homely and private environment with the convenience of a town location.

A hardwood door with brass door-furniture leads into a welcoming Reception Hall and the character of the home instantly jumps out at you. First there is the hardwood flooring, large skirting boards and vintage style radiators, mixed in with the sash windows, original shutters and cast iron fireplace, with plenty of room to be deemed a generous Reception Room. There is a built in cupboard and further door to the Cloakroom comprising of wc, wash hand basin and side aspect window with a tiled floor and plenty of room for coats and shoes.  

A door to the left leads to what we have described as the Office, also full of character features including wooden floor, radiator, sash windows and shutters with a separate door and steps that lead to the Living Room.

A pretty room with far reaching views over the patio and garden via stunning bay window with French doors, there is a large open fireplace and lots of built in storage.

A further door leads to the Inner Hallway with stairs leading to the first floor.  There is also an understairs door that leads down to the Basement, a tiled floor that flows through to the Boot Room with glazed door to patio and garden, and an additional door to the Utility Room.

Refitted with Neptune cabinetry complimented by slate granite work tops, the space is luxuriously appointed with integrated appliances including Fridge/Freezer and Dishwasher with space and provision for Washing Machine and Tumble Dryer. The room is naturally lit via side aspect sash windows with exposed brick and timbers creating a real sense of character.

In 2020 the owners completed a superb extension creating a warm and expansive Kitchen and Dining Space for the whole family to enjoy with a cosy snug located at one end with feature log burner.

The hand built Kitchen has been beautifully styled with a meticulous eye for detail, the standards uncompromising, a complete bespoke solution for this vast space. With vintage mirror splashback, elegant lighting, Siemens appliances, Quartz work surfaces, bar stools and solid oak flooring, it is an ideal space for all the family to enjoy or for entertaining. The room is naturally lit by generous roof lanterns as well as crittle style and full length windows, with French doors leading to the patio and garden.

Upstairs Bedroom One has a bay window with views across the rear garden and door leading to a generous built in walk in wardrobe with separate door to the landing. A further door leads to the refitted Ensuite facilities with free standing bath, large walk in shower cubicle, wc and wash hand basin set into a vanity unit, all complemented by stunning floor and wall tiles.

The remaining Bedrooms ooze character with cast iron fireplaces, exposed beams, brickwork and shutter and all with a front aspect.

All the Bedrooms are serviced via the four piece Family Bathroom with freestanding roll top bath, large walk in shower cubicle, wash hand basin and wc, naturally lit via side and rear aspect windows with spotlighting.

Outside the entire property and gardens sit on a plot of approximately third of an acre.  The rear gardens have been well tendered and comprise a large patio area that wraps round the back of the property with rendered retaining walls and steps leading to a raised lawn area.

A garden of this size in such a central location is unrivalled, an oasis boasting an impressive array of  mature trees and established borders all fully enclosed with the remainder laid to lawn.

The property is located in this popular market town in the Royal County of Berkshire, recognised for superb schooling and excellent quality of life. Its centre provides local, national and international retailers, with numerous dining options and entertainment choices across the surrounding area. The town centre has recently benefited from a regeneration project maintaining the town's popular status and the local countryside offers a varied range of different outdoor pursuits, sports and health spas.

Wokingham is ideally located for London commuters with a direct route to Waterloo from Wokingham and a fast service to Paddington (via Reading and Twyford). Both M4 (Jnct 10 & 11) and the M3 via (Jnct 5 & 6) are within easy reach. Wokingham also provides direct train services to Gatwick Airport.
