Columba Gardens, WOKINGHAM, WOKINGHAM RG40
Ref No: KE003-LI-RE532
You have just found the most stunning of family homes, with absolutely nothing left to compromise. Despite its elegant interior and high-spec finish, this property has been designed with family life firmly in mind.
Columba Gardens has a welcoming tiled entrance hall, with a glass stair balustrade to create an open and inviting home-coming. With the family in mind, there is a very capable cloak & separate under-stairs cupboard to hide piles of boots, bags, and other general ‘stuff’ which forms part of family life. The glazed internal double doors downstairs give the property a wonderful sense of light and flow.
The very hub of the home is its stunning and spacious open-plan kitchen, with breakfast bar and living space flowing into the stylish conservatory. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with soft-close units, integrated AEG appliances, including an induction hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and also a wine cooler and water softener. There is plenty of room for cheeky kids to perch themselves at the breakfast bar, or for guests to enjoy a glass of wine or coffee while you rustle up a creation or two!
For more leisurely mealtimes, the dining room creates a tranquil setting with show-stopping chandeliers, elegant wallpaper and French doors which open to the patio and walled garden.
The living room, which also has French doors to the patio, provides good configuration for sofas and TV, but also has a stylish integrated wood-burner to create a homely atmosphere.
Additionally, there is large home study with ample room for two desks, or this could make a perfect kids’ den with sofas, toy chest (and a quarantine for Lego bricks!)
A word on the conservatory, as this is no ordinary space - with part-brick construction, beautiful fitted window blinds, stunning roof lantern & French doors, this is a sunny sanctuary to sit and enjoy the garden. For cooler days, there is underfloor heating, with the back-up from the gas central heating for the extremely cold weather. The energy efficiency meets the high performance you’d expect in a property of this age and quality, so you should be able to enjoy this space in all seasons.
On the practical side, there is a well-designed utility room which houses an integrated washing machine, dryer and plenty of storage and workspace. With a door leading to the side passage, it’s easy to use this as a ‘boots off’ entrance for the kids, and nip to the garden with washing etc.
Upstairs, four of the five bedrooms are double size, with a master suite to take your breath away. This tranquil retreat is spacious and calm, with ample fitted storage, luxurious curtains, thermostatically controlled temperature and a beautiful tiled en-suite with double shower enclosure.
The guest suite enjoys views over the garden, mirrored sliding-door wardrobe units and large en-suite with double shower enclosure. Bedroom three is larger than many master bedrooms, and is fitted with bespoke wardrobe storage. The property has two further bedrooms, one double and one large single. The family bathroom is modern, spacious and luxurious with bath and separate shower enclosure.
Whether you use it for cars or not, this property has a large double garage with internal door through to the hall. The driveway could accommodate four small cars, or three larger ones.
The property overlooks a small green and is set in a pleasant neighbourhood near the end of a no-through road.
The garden is beautifully-kept (with a gardener included, so all you need do is enjoy it!), and is enclosed with a classic-style brick wall. The stone patio is ideal for entertaining or relaxing and, with mature trees to the rear, the garden feels secluded. It’s certainly a safe place for kids to run around (although you might prefer to send them off to the local park, just a quick sprint away!)
This part of Wokingham enjoys the enviable position for quick access to the A329M (leading to the M4 for London and the west) and, for train commuters, it’s a short drive to Wokingham Station (68 mins to Waterloo) and Twyford Station (for the 28 minute morning service to Paddington). Twyford, of course, is also on the route of the new Crossrail links to key stations in the heart London, east London and the City (opening Autumn 2018)
Columba Gardens falls within catchment of the OFTSTED excellent Holt and OFSTED Good St Crispins school & Sixth Form.
