DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  A detached bungalow extended and improved since it was last sold by Martin & Pole in about 1951 but now considered suitable for further improvement or perhaps replacement with a stylish 21st century property.  The commanding road frontage and countryside on 3 sides combine to ensure the potential for an individual property with unique characteristics.


Perhaps surprisingly the immediate area in terms of residential development is largely unchanged since this property was last sold although some properties have been extended and others replaced, but in terms of the numbers it is remarkably similar.  During this time however Wokingham has expanded from a small almost insignificant market town to a larger mainly commuter town, although with some employment opportunities, whilst Bracknell was developed under the New Towns Act and has in every sense changed beyond recognition.  Its Town Centre has undergone significant regeneration and is now proudly boasting a wide range of major retailers whilst there are also good employment opportunities.


The location is undoubtedly a principal feature for road, rail and air.  Wokingham and Bracknell stations offer services on the Reading to Waterloo line with a regular service also available from Wokingham on the Reading to Guildford/Gatwick line.  Twyford station just to the north offers fast services on the West of England/Reading/London (Paddington) line and will shortly also include services on the new Crossrail service.  The M4 motorway with J10 on the outskirts of Wokingham is most convenient whilst the M3 just to the south of Bracknell at Bagshot is also readily accessible.  Other major employment and big commercial centres include Reading, Maidenhead and Slough.

The Gardens  These are an important feature if not the most important feature of the property.  It is rare to market a property with such a commanding road frontage and with farmland on 3 sides.  There are a number of outbuildings including a range of old timber sheds and 2 greenhouses.  The boundaries are well defined with established hedgerows.  There is some formal garden and an area to one side with light woodland.


SERVICES:  Mains water, gas and electricity are connected.  Septic tank drainage.  NB There is a gas-fired boiler but we are advised this is not working.


EER: tbc


TENURE:  Freehold with vacant possession upon completion of the purchase.  NB There are two titles to the property, one unregistered and one registered.  These are in different ownerships and the sale price will need to be apportioned between the two parts, namely 90% to the unregistered title and 10% to the registered title.


LOCAL AUTHORITY:  Wokingham Borough Council, Shute End, Wokingham RG40 1BN.  Tel 0118 974 6000.


TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING:  We have researched the online planning records for this property and can find no recent planning applications.


DIRECTIONS:  Forest Road is the B4034.  Carlisle Lodge is one of the very few properties on the south side of the road between Warrenhouse Road and Binfield Road.
