Grange Lane, Beenham, Reading, Berkshire, RG7
A semi-detached period cottage, in part dating back to circa 1814, which boasts an abundance of character. The cottage has in recent years been the subject of an extensive renovation programme. The generous sitting room features a fireplace with woodburning stove and double doors to the garden. The country-style kitchen/dining room has an Aga and ample space for dining and leads through to a vestibule off which is utility room and a well appointed bathroom. The first floor offers 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which have fitted cupboards.
The house is denoted from the tree-lined lane by a close board fence, with gates to the front driveway which provides parking for 2/3 cars. There are also double gates into the rear garden (useful for easy access with garden machinery etc.). The garden is primarily laid to lawn with a paved terrace, a vegetable patch and a fabulous recreational area at the far end of the garden, with a dining terrace, an outside kitchen, a summerhouse and a further timber outbuilding with a storage room and delightfully quirky WC to the rear.
