Located on the South Western edge of Reading Town Centre is this imposing Victorian villa believed to date back to 1860. Once used as overspill accommodation for the former Upcross Hotel which is a now a landmark apartment development, Upcross Gardens, completed by Millgate Homes in 2008. The property is in need of modernisation and offers potential to develop/convert (subject to planning) either into either a grand family home or conversion apartments. We understand that there is a covenant in place which states that the property cannot be converted into any more than 4 units which will limit the development potential.
Set over three floors the property boasts over 3000 sq. ft. of accommodation including six bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and a further ground floor bathroom. There is a large entry hall, a grand drawing room, two further reception rooms, kitchen and utility room on the ground floor. There is a generous rear garden, as well as adequate frontage and three/four off road parking spaces to the side of the house accessed from Upcross Gardens. This wonderful and rarely available property offers a wealth of charm and retains many original features including, period fireplaces, ornate cornicing and high ceilings many of which can be retained for the homes future use. Block viewings will be available. Please contact us to confirm dates/times.
