Set on a quiet country lane behind electric gates and occupying a plot of approximately 1.25 acres is this splendid family home built in 1999. The property is just over a mile from the M4 at Junction 11 and offers excellent transport links to Reading, Wokingham and Basingstoke all of which have excellent train links in to London. The home is set in a convenient yet secluded location and in our opinion is one of the finest homes in the Village of Shinfield.

The extensive living accommodation is centred around an open plan living space with an open fire place and kitchen/breakfast room with french doors opening onto a generous patio area perfect for entertaining all year round. There is a utility room off the kitchen which again gives side access to the gardens. There is a spacious drawing room to the front of the house with vaulted ceilings and another open fireplace which gives access to a formal dining room. There are four good sized double bedrooms on the ground floor, the master bedroom suite complete with a dressing room and delightful bathroom suite with corner bath and separate shower. Two further en suite bathrooms and a shower room complete the ground floor. First floor accommodation has potential to be altered into secondary accommodation, perfect for an extended family or teenage children. Currently the first floor boasts, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious 32ft. living area which is currently used as a gym/study space but offers flexible use.

The outside space is a real feature of this spacious home. The landscaped gardens boast formal lawns, an extensive 'wild garden' which was created by the renowned designer, Peter Simms, there is a 'working garden', an ornamental fish pond and paved outside relaxation area and outside dining space perfect for entertaining. There is a modern studio, detached triple garage with electric up-and-over doors and gardeners store along with paved parking area for several cars. Due to the size of the plot there may be opportunity for the new owners to further develop and add secondary accommodation which may suit an extended family or staff quarters. This extensive and well-presented property, conveniently situated within the village, will make an excellent family and is for sale with no onward chain complications.
