This is a lovely family home, centrally located in the popular Coley Park area, with off-street parking for up to three cars.

As you step inside, you'll pass through a useful hallway before entering the large, dual aspect living/dining room with laminate flooring. There's plenty of light in here - the sun rises at the front and from midday shines through the patio doors, keeping the room bright all day. In the winter the coal-effect gas fire with its stone hearth provides a glowing focal point. Alternatively, take the door on the right through to an additional living area. This is a flexible space which could easily be used as a playroom, a home office, study or even an additional bedroom. Or, if you're feeling more adventurous, why not develop it into a spectacular kitchen / diner?

Both of these reception rooms lead through to the kitchen, where there are base and eye-level beech effect units, laminated worktops and a stainless steel sink, a double oven with gas hob, space for a washing machine and tumble dryer / dishwasher.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms with plenty of built-in wardrobe / storage spaces. The third bedroom could make a cosy double or a large single bedroom.

The bathroom has a modern white bathroom suite, consisting of a shower bath with electric shower and basin. The toilet is separate.

There is laddered access to the loft and here you will find a large, well-lit, fully boarded space, which is perfect for the hoarder in the family!

Outside the West-facing garden enjoys the afternoon and evening sun, with a large patio, lawn area and garden shed. If you're green-fingered there is a lot of potential here - if you're not, it works as a superb low maintenance place for the kids to play, or a secluded sun trap.

Wensley Road is a great location, with a primary school a few minutes walk away, several local shops including a chemist and post office. There are two large parks, both with play areas nearby. Reading, with it's modern shopping centre, cultural attractions, bustling nightlife and superb riverside dining is no more than 10 minutes by bus, with a regular service every 20 minutes during peak times. The London commute is an easy one too, particularly as Paddington can be reached in just 25 minutes from Reading's new train station; and Crossrail will make travelling to London even easier by 2019. If you fancy venturing further afield by car, the M4 and M3 motorways can be your gateway to the world. And Heathrow is easily reached too, with regular train and bus services from the town centre.
