Post Cottage is a charming period two bedroom property which has been stylishly updated inside by the current owners. Entrance is straight into the open plan sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room. Lovely wooden floors and a woodburning stove in the sitting room lead into the kitchen/breakfast room with its smart light grey cabinets and central island, all with light grey granite worktops. There is also a dining room with a large open fireplace.
On the first floor two double bedrooms lead off the landing. The principal bedroom is at the back of the house and has wonderful elevated views over the garden and valley beyond. There is also a large family bathroom on this floor.

Post Cottage is located in Bradfield Southend; a delightful West Berkshire village with a community run post office and village store. It is ideally placed to take advantage of both Reading and Newbury where there are a full range of services and amenities. The close-by village of Chapel Row also benefits from its own pub, an interior design shop and the Blackbird Café.

Transport links by both rail and road are also easy. The M4 (J12) is only 5 miles away providing access to London and its airports and the West Country. Train services can be accessed at Theale (London Paddington within the hour) and Thatcham (London Paddington within the hour).

Locally there is both State and Private schooling available. Of particular note are Elstree Preparatory School, Brockhurst Preparatory School, Downe House School, St. Andrews School and Bradfield College. At Bradfield College there are excellent sporting facilities available via membership, including a golf course, indoor sports complex and tennis centre.

The area is well served with recreational pursuits, and the local countryside is renowned for its beautiful walks and rides.

Bifolding doors from the kitchen breakfast room lead out onto the brick paved patio and lawn beyond. The lawn runs the length of the garden down to a post and rail fence, where there are lovely elevated views of the valley over farmland and woodland beyond. There is potential to build a deck area here as an additional outdoor entertaining space. Post Cottage also has a gravel driveway to one side with parking for two cars and there is also a large store within the garden.
