Tastefully presented and in excellent order – this gem of a family home has been extended to provide enough space for a growing family, but also the countless benefits of its high-specification annexe.
Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in Keephatch Park, the locality is known for being a family-friendly and super-safe area. Nearby there are several parks, a nature reserve, duck pond, recreation field and a good choice of both good & excellent schools.
Access to the A329M and M4 are easy, and the soon-to-be regenerated Wokingham Town Centre is just over a mile away.There is the convenience of a neighbourhood Sainsbury’s ten minutes’ walk away, and other local shops within walking distance in nearby Beanoak Parade.
The current owners have invested heavily throughout the property, and a viewing will give appreciation to the finishing touches.
A Walk-through the Property

The kitchen itself has a stunning vaulted ceiling feature, with skylight window and opening Velux window.The light oak fitted range of units incorporate a double oven, brushed stainless steel extractor hood, gas hob, under-cupboard lighting and open shelves.The focal point of the room is the oak-topped island with its storage and breakfast bar seating.With underfloor heating and engineered oak flooring, the kitchen will be one of the favourite spots in the house.
