Property description

Parkers - Situated in a desirable private, and very quiet, cul-de-sac of only 6 houses in the charming village of Theale is this rarely available three / four bedroom detached family home that is full of latent potential.

The property is well placed to take advantage of all the village has to offer. The bustling High Street is a 7 minute walk, the train station, which provides direct links to London Paddington and Crossrail (2019) is a 10 minute walk, the villages highly regarded primary school is a 4 minute walk and an excellent ‘Fullers’ pub is a 2 minute walk. Junction 12 of the M4 is a three minute drive.

Built in the late 1960's the property has been in the same family ownership for the last 44 years and has been well cared for, extended and updated during this time. Entering the property accommodation feels spacious and flows well from room to room.

Downstairs accommodation is comprised of a large entrance hall that leads to a room that has previously been used as a bedroom but that could easily be used as a family room / study or other reception room. There is a large (28') dual aspect living / dining room that benefits from a working fireplace, and that enjoys views of, and access to, the rear garden the length of the room lends itself to increasing the size of the kitchen, were this to be important to someone. The rear aspect kitchen provides garden views and outside access to the rear garden. There is also a downstairs cloakroom.

On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms, all of which can accommodate a double bed, the master is of impressive dimensions (16') and has the space to accommodate an en-suite. There is also a family bathroom and separate w/c.

Outside and to the rear there is a private East facing garden that is laid to patio and herbaceous borders, the garden has the potential to provide vehicle access and indeed has done so in the past. There is also an under stairs cupboard that is accessed from the outside, whilst to the front there is a garden laid to lawn, herbaceous borders and a block paved drive that can accommodate 2 cars off road.

The property could be further extended, subject to the usual planning constraints.

This property represents a rarely available opportunity to acquire a family home full of potential in this desirable village.
