FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION (unless previously sold)On Thursday the 24th November 2016 at 2.30 pm at Sonning Golf Club Duffield Road Sonning Reading RG4

‘Woodside’ Castle Road Farley Hill RG7 1UL




DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  Woodside was constructed during the 1950s for the current owner’s family and is available to the open market for the first time.  An attractive double bay fronted detached bungalow with well proportioned accommodation offering potential for extension, loft conversion, or possibly replacement.  The present owner’s family during the 1990s gained a planning consent to demolish Woodside and replace with a substantial detached chalet residence.  Subject to the necessary planning consent this may well be a very real option a purchaser may wish to pursue.




Farley Hill is perhaps one of the most attractive and in many respects unspoilt villages in the area.  Wokingham Borough Council designate it an area of Special Landscape importance.  Although enjoying a rural situation, Farley Hill is highly convenient for the nearby towns of Reading and Wokingham, and within easy reach of J11 of the M4 motorway.
