Description

Tenure: Freehold

Contemporary living in Britain’s oldest town.

This is a beautifully presented warm and welcoming two-bedroom mid-terrace home with an enclosed garden, detached garage and parking for three cars.  

Situation

Fyfield Road is a no through road, so traffic is kept to a minimum in this development.  

You’re less than a 10-minute walk to the Broadway with a great range of shops, restaurants and pub, including both the Co-op Food and Waitrose stores. Thatcham also has many independent shops, from pottery and pet shops to beauty spas and coffee shops. 

The A4 with its links to Reading and Marlborough is close by, as is the M4 and A34, in turn taking you to London and Wales, Oxford and the south coast. This is a great location to be in the middle of everything while retaining a wonderful sense of space. 

It’s interesting to note that Thatcham has been hailed as the oldest continually inhabited town in Britain, dating back as far back as 8,500 BC. There was once a Roman settlement going back to between the 2nd and 5th centuries, and it was certainly bigger and more important than its now larger neighbour, Newbury.

Property

This mid-terraced house is a wonderful place to start a new phase in your life, whether this is as the owner of your own home, starting a family or scaling back to enjoy a simpler life.

Hallway

Step into this beautifully finished home and you’re immediately notice the stylish wood laminate which runs through the downstairs, creating flow and cohesion. This house is presented to a high standard, allowing you the luxury of being able to just move in and unpack.  

Kitchen

Looking out of the front of the house is the kitchen, perfect for watching the world go by as you rustle up a culinary masterpiece. The smart wood-effect kitchen cupboards and wall units provide ample storage, including a built-in fridge freezer and separate 4-burner gas hob and electric oven. A stainless-steel sink and drainer sit in the generous work surface, and there’s plumbing for a washing machine.   

Unusually, this kitchen also gives you scope to make changes very cost effectively, thanks to the ‘free’ wall opposite the window. This could be used to house a dresser, additional cabinets creating a horseshoe layout, a freestanding or dropdown kitchen table, or for additional white appliances. The combi boiler is wall-mounted to the front, below you is a neutral ceramic tiled floor, while above you spotlights illuminate the space perfectly.

Living / dining room

Through the glass panelled door and you’re into the bright, airy living dining space. Your eye is drawn to the French door and beyond to the pretty enclosed rear garden. Being on the north side of the house, this room stays blissfully cool in summer, while cavity wall insulation and double-glazed windows ensure it’s toasty warm in winter. Beneath the stairs is a useful deceptively large storage space.

You could configure this to suit the way you live, the flexible space providing a blank canvas for you to make your own distinctive mark.

FIRST FLOOR

Master bedroom

To the front of the house, enjoying bright sunny mornings, is the master bedroom. With ample space for a double bed, matching bedside cabinets, freestanding wardrobes and chests of drawers or a desk, as well as the built-in cupboard/wardrobe. 

Bathroom

The bathroom has been beautifully and stylishly updated to a high standard. The feature tiled wall adds wow factor and some lovely warm tones. Beneath it, the contemporary double ended bath is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine. Or you could unfold the shower screen for a reviving shower with the thermostatically controlled shower.

A combined back-to-cabinet loo and washbasin unit, with white countertop sits beneath a feature round mirror and marble effect tiles. A door to a storage cupboard and a heated chrome towel rail finish this hotel-inspired bathroom.

Bedroom

Overlooking the rear garden, and ideal for those who are more night owl than early bird, is the second double bedroom. Filled with light from the wide widow, this room has plenty of space for a double bed, bedside tables, freestanding wardrobe and chest of drawers. The new carpet feels wonderful underfoot.

Attic

From the upstairs hallway you have access to the attic.

Outside

The front of this south-facing house is a real suntrap, and if you’re not using the flagstone and gravel garden as a super-convenient third off-road parking spot, it would make a lovely spot for a garden bench to soak up the sun and get to know your neighbours.

The enclosed rear garden while not massive, certainly gives you everything – a patio for barbeques and alfresco dining, grass for a knock about or a pet to lounge on, beautifully planted raised beds and even a garden shed. There’s also rear access to the garage and car parking space.      

Location

In the popular Moors housing development, you’re a short level walk into the centre of town. In the other direction, you’re a short stroll from the Nature Discovery Centre with its beautiful lakeside walk and wildlife. Thatcham Reed Beds are a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with its walking trails – perfect for getting closer to nature.  

Transport links

Connections by road include the M4, A4 and A34, making it easily commutable from London, while rail links take you into London, towards Cardiff in the west, and via nearby Reading, with its newly opened Elizabeth line, to most of the country including the Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
