Dating back to about 1900, Wisteria Cottage presents beautifully with good reception rooms on the ground floor. The drawing room is large and has an open fireplace and continues through into the conservatory. The kitchen/dining room has two sets of French doors leading to the garden and is fitted with smart cream painted cabinetry and wooden worktops. There is a large central island, housing an induction hob with extractor fan above.
On the first floor there is the master bedroom with en suite shower room and a further double bedroom and family bathroom. Another double bedroom and study area can be found on the top floor and at one end there is a pitched full height glazed window with fabulous views over the neighbouring fields.
In addition to the main house there is a separate one bedroom studio with its own sitting room and kitchen and en suite shower, which is ideal as overflow guest accommodation or for a nanny or au pair.
Stanford Dingley is one of the most desirable villages in West Berkshire with a Saxon church and two public houses, The Old Boot which dates back to the 18th Century and The Bull dating back to 15th Century. The charming village sits in an idyllic, tranquil location amidst farmland and woodland, within the valley of the River Pang. The local villages of Bucklebury and Bradfield offer excellent local amenities including churches, public houses and village shops. Bradfield College also has excellent sporting facilities available via membership, including a golf course, indoors sports complex, pool and tennis centre. Reading and Newbury are 10 and 9 miles away respectively, and provide more comprehensive facilities and shopping centres. The area benefits from excellent commuter and travel facilities with easy access onto the M4 at junctions 12 and 13 to London and the West Country, and an excellent train service from Reading to London Paddington within the hour. There is also the added draw of Crossrail in 2019.
The gardens here are delightful and imaginatively planted with a rich variety of plants and shrubs, offering up a visual feast of colour and texture. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the garden on all sides, with two patio areas, one leading out from the kitchen and the other from the conservatory. Between the main house and the annexe there are raised vegetable beds and a pretty greenhouse and these beds and the garden are divided by grafted fruit trees and wrought iron trellises covered in climbing plants. Giving the house its name, a mature wisteria grows at the back of the house and covers the pergola shading the side patio. There is parking for several cars in front of the garage and the house is approached through a wooden five bar gate onto a gravel driveway.
