    About this property

    • The Dower Cottage is a beautiful character home, maybe one of the prettiest in the village, that has come to the market for the first time in over 35 years. Built around 1880 in the Arts and Crafts style, with a thatched roof, the property offers a unique home in the heart of the village with an abundance of period features and picturesque garden. It could be a perfect
      country home or pied-a-terre.

      The property has been renovated by the current owners to, in our opinion, an exceptional standard and retains a wealth of character. The reception hall has a tiled floor and leads through to the sitting room, with feature bay window and open fire place. Steps lead down to the dining room with double doors out to the side terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units which were hand made by Constable and Phillips and with a number of integrated appliances. There is also a study and large utility/boot room.

      To the first floor the principal bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes, an en suite bathroom and access to a balcony which over looks the garden. The guest bedroom has lovely views over the River and there is a 3rd double bedroom and family bathroom.

      Outside
      The South facing garden has been beautifully landscaped with several seating areas and paved terraces. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and plants. There is parking for 4/5 vehicles and access to a detached oak car port.

      Agents Note
      Planning permission was granted in 2016 for the erection of a first floor side extension, creating a further bedroom and bathroom. Further information can be found on www.planning.wokingham.gov.uk or speaking to our office.
