 DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A late Victorian end-of-terrace house considered to form part of Wokingham Town Centre – just two minutes’ walk from the shops. The house has been in the same family ownership for many years and will undoubtedly benefit from some expenditure following which it should become a really lovely cottage of great character and comfort. There is currently a lift which the buyer will probably wish to remove.


Wokingham Town Centre is undergoing regeneration, the end result of which is planned to include a wider range of shops, restaurants and cafes. Wescott School for children aged 4-7 is within 2-3 minutes’ walk. There are other schools, including a secondary school, very close by. The A329M runs within about 1 mile and provides access to the M4 (J10) and the M3 to the south of Bracknell at Bagshot. Wokingham railway station is on the Reading to Waterloo line and Guildford/Gatwick line. The Gatwick service is one stop from Reading which currently offers fast services to London Paddington with the range of services shortly to extend to Crossrail. Alternatively those wishing to access the Crossrail service may drive to Twyford (about 6 miles) which will also provide direct Crossrail services.
