Built in the 1980's, Heathlands has been superbly modernised to create a light and spacious family house with well-designed living accommodation. In particular, the recent addition of a large conservatory with under floor heating which opens into the formal dining room, and flows neatly into the stylish kitchen with fitted appliances, granite work surfaces and breakfast bar. The dual aspect sitting room lies to one end of the house with a large open fireplace, currently with a log burning stove, and windows to one end looking out to the covered dining area. There is also a lovely study area off the kitchen, and a family room and utility room to one side with an additional external access.
To the first floor, the very spacious principal bedroom takes precedence with hard wood flooring, a stylish en suite, full length dressing room and French doors with Juliette balcony which open to enjoy the views over the gardens and beyond. There is a guest bedroom with an elegant en suite, as well as three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Heathlands is situated in Burghfield; a pre-Roman village with a pub, church and primary school. Further local facilities can be found at Burghfield Common including a farm shop, nursery school, leisure centre and library. There is a mainline station at Reading that provides regular fast access to both London Paddington and Waterloo.

There is excellent access to the M4 junction 11 and 12, and the M3 junction 5 with links to the national motorway network, central London and is airports.

Set back from the road behind high hedging offering a high degree of privacy, the house is approached through electric gates over a gravel driveway to the secluded front of the house and double garage. The south facing gardens lie to the rear of property and are laid to lawn with an array of mature planting, providing year round colour and variety. Off the back of the house is a terrace accessed from the superb conservatory, utility room and drawing room, allowing for a seamless flow between house and gardens. There is a dining area on the terrace, as well as a decked seating area, cleverly placed to take advantage of the evening sun. To the other side of the terrace is a water feature and pergola, lying alongside the ornamental pond and decked area. A beautifully manicured rose garden lies to one side with a low level stone wall, and there is a small orchard with a greenhouse to the far end of the garden with post and rail fencing to the boundary which overlooks paddock land.
