When you step off the street into the entrance porch and beyond, the living room is bright but cosy space allowing plenty of natural light from the side uPVC double glazed sash style window. The original open fireplace has been sympathetically updated in a modern but classic style with brick surround, tiled hearth and wooden mantel. The dining room is separated by a central staircase leading to the first floor.
The clean and recently updated decoration follows through into the Dining Room that has another large window looking out to the garden. Ample storage is offered by an under stairs storage cupboard and the room has another feature fireplace that has been fitted with a modest stainless-steel gas fire.
The kitchen was refitted in 2017 and now comprises a range of modern units, work surfaces, integrated oven and gas hob with a window and door to the side leading to the garden.
The ground floor bathroom flows directly from the kitchen using the same tiling to accentuate the light and space from the double aspect windows to the rear. The bathroom has also benefitted from a modernisation and features fully tiled walls, a jacuzzi corner bath, low level wc, wash hand basin with modern combi boiler.
The upstairs continues with a feeling of airy spaciousness with two good sized double bedrooms; the Master Bedroom with having a further feature fireplace and the second double bedroom having a built in wardrobe.
71 Havelock was built over 120 years ago but the careful and sympathetic modernisation brings this cosy home right up to date with a stylish finesse
Outside & Garden
The rear garden has been created as an extension to the indoor space with two discrete spaces. As you walk outside, there is a raised deck and part brick paved dining area underneath a large pergola. The large brick built barbecue evokes long summer evenings and is a tidy, easy maintenance space. The second half of the garden, leading down towards a well-sized and useful storage shed is laid to lawn and has a pretty brick built well (not an original feature, but one that sits at home in this enclosed garden.
The front of the property is set back slightly from the road and has a low maintenance, gravelled garden area.
Unusually for a terraced property, 71 Havelock Road sits towards the head of a no through road and benefits from excellent privacy with no busy passing traffic. The mainline station is close enough to walk to but does not disturb the quiet of this tranquil home.
There is a small shop within 125m and Wokingham town centre is also a short walk away. The closest primnary school, Walter Infants and St Pauls Primary are within a five minute walk and there is good access for the catchment secondary schools of The Emmbrook, St Crispins, The Holt and The Forest.
