Description

Situated in the highly sought after Albion Terrace, this is the last remaining town house in a former terrace of 11 grand Georgian homes which were converted into luxury apartments in the 1990's. Originally constructed in 1835 and now Grade II* listed this superb property retains much of its grandeur and many of its original features including, high ceilings and large sash windows. Set over four floors the property offers over 2000 sq. Ft. Of flexible living accommodation. The ground floor has an entrance hall with stairs leading to first floor with its bright grand living room with south facing floor to ceiling windows and a wrought iron veranda. The first floor also has a contemporary bespoke handmade Neptune kitchen/breakfast room with a range of high spec. Neff appliances and granite work surfaces. The first floor is completed by a study or fifth bedroom. On the second floor there are two large bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and a further family bathroom with a feature innovative Duravit bath and separate shower. The third and top floor again has two generously proportioned bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom complete with freestanding designer bath. The top two floors of the property offer elevated views over the Reading skyline and this superb home is an easy walk Reading train station with its direct links to London in just over 20 minutes (also with Crossrail soon to be on the Elizabeth Line linking Reading with the City of London and Canary Wharf) as well as the Royal Berkshire Hospital. The property further benefits from a large (approx 450 sq.m.) walled garden which can be accessed via the developments landscaped communal grounds. The exceptional home is in our opinion one of the finest homes of its type in the town and would suit a growing family looking for a unique home in a great convenient location.
