Approaching Woodland View in Alexander Close via Kiln Ride from either Nine Mile Ride or Finchampstead Road you are reminded of the convenience that properties in Finchampstead benefit from. Close to Wokingham Town Centre but affording a convenient range of amenities including local shops, post office, pharmacy, doctor’s surgery and schools. However, Alexander Close nestles in against a more rural backdrop and as cul-de-sac has no passing traffic to disturb the tranquillity of this peaceful development.
All five properties are designed with individual charm and are generously proportioned in both their living accommodation and grounds.
When you pull up through the gated entrance, alongside the double garage at Alexander Close you will notice that the block paved driveway has ample parking for several cars. Not by chance, this home has been designed to be accommodating for large families and it is not just the parking that offers space for welcoming plenty of guests. This large detached home is spacious enough for entertaining whilst retaining that much sought after charm of being an intimate and homely place.
The oak framed porch through which you enter the house leads to a large entrance hall, tiled and appointed with underfloor heating which runs throughout the ground floor of the property. Doors lead off to all downstairs room and the turning staircase in front of you leads invitingly to the first-floor bedrooms. A central core of the home, the entrance hall is welcoming and draws visitors inside with a sheltered charm. A downstairs cloakroom with WC can be found to the right of the front door and there are two storage cupboards. To the left is the study which benefits from two windows looking out first to the front drive and to the side of the property. An airy room with built in furniture, it makes an ideal space for anyone required to work from home.
Next to the study and opening out with French doors to the rear garden is the sitting room. Another dual aspect room, the room has a contemporary fireplace recessed into the feature chimney breast above which is space for a large flat screen television. Built in cupboards to the sides of the fireplace provide ample space for storage and are beautifully crafted having been commissioned by the current owners. A relaxing space that combines clean lines and modernity with homely elegance there is little doubt that the living room, looking out to the immaculate garden, offers tranquillity and calm.
Returning to the entrance hall, there is a formal dining room to the front of the property that offers a good size and flexibility to be used for other purposes such as a family or games room. The last door leads to the open plan kitchen breakfast room to which the owners have added a sizeable conservatory. The heart of this stylish home, the kitchen has been fitted with unimaginable attention to detail with a superb range of facilities. From the black granite worksurfaces atop beechwood and cream fitted units to the underfloor heating beneath the grand pale cream tiles the space is presented in the finest decorative order. Featuring two integrated single ovens, steam oven and microwave, instant boil water tap and combined mixer with chilled filtered drinking water, there is extensive range of built in appliances. A central island with storage and granite surfaces completes the room yet there is also a further utility space. Offering segregated storage for your white goods and laundry accoutrements, the utility room has a Butler sink, range of built in cupboards, boiler and water softener. There is also an external door allowing separate access for moody boots and wet dogs!
Further bi-fold doors lead into the Conservatory through to which the underfloor heating continues under the same gleaming tiled flooring leading to the outside space. Though the current owners have built a large summerhouse as well as a conservatory to maximise the use of the outside space, the large patio and modest lawn still offer ample space for entertaining. The contemporary stylings of the garden with its white concrete raised pond and border walls invoke a continental feel that is enhanced by some exotic planting that contrasts well to more traditional English flora. The garden is not overlooked and offers excellent privacy to enjoy the south easterly aspect. When the weather is not so clement, the conservatory affords a bright and spacious way to enjoy the beauty of outside and is currently used as both a dining and lounging space.
Upstairs, the impressively appointed accommodation continues with an open landing allowing you to easily imagine the bustle of family life playing out through its open doors. The Master Bedroom has an extensive range of built in wardrobes and a view to the rear of the house across the garden and woodland beyond. Complete with a luxury four-piece en-suite bathroom and separate shower cubicle, the owners have spared no expense to make this space comfortable, stylish and practical.
Bedroom two has been fitted out for a teenager with a range of bespoke furniture and purpose built cupboards and has en-suite shower facilities.
The large third double bedroom also has extensive wardrobes and has a view to the front of the property and has the potential scope for adding an en-suite. The fourth bedroom is an ideally sized guest room and also has built in wardrobes.
Appointed with modern fixtures including chrome ladder radiators, enclosed sink unit and recessed storage, the family Bathroom is luxuriously appointed with frosted glazed window to the front.
Alexander Close is a rare contemporary home that offers such individual stylings that are usually consistent only with period properties. More than a house, this home offers a touch of rural tranquillity with the convenience of its proximity to excellent transport links, shopping and community facilities. This is a truly exceptional opportunity to own a generously proportioned and comfortable property offering the standard of accommodation consistent with a new build home.
