Greenways is a well-presented detached "chalet" bungalow located on a highly regarded private road. The property is entered into a central hallway, from to the right is a large sitting room with a wood-burning stove, to the left is a bedroom with ensuite shower and the family bathroom. Continuing down the hall, you step into a generous open plan family room, stairs lead up to a double bedroom, and to the left is an inner hall and two more bedrooms.
The kitchen is at the rear of the property overlooking the delightful garden. At the end of the established garden is a substantial studio ideal of improvement to form a useful home office.
Whilst it is likely that the accommodation will now be updated, the presentation is very good and we feel there is plenty of exciting potential.
Shiplake cross is the parish of Shiplake which is a very popular Thames side village. Local amenities include a village shop/post office, butcher, garage and The Baskerville, an award-winning public house and restaurant.
The railway station gives mainline access (via Twyford) in 8 minutes or Reading (18 minutes) with a fast service to London, Paddington (from 25 minutes). Henley-on-Thames, Marlow and Reading are all within easy reach and offer a more comprehensive range of shopping, leisure, and recreational facilities.
The area is well served for schools, including Reading Blue Coat, Shiplake College ( which is less than 1/4mile ), The Abbey School for Girls, and Queen Anne's in Caversham. Greenways is also in the catchment area of Shiplake Primary School.
There are boating activities on the River Thames, and Henley is world-famous for the annual Henley Royal Regatta and hosts the Henley Festival of Music & Arts, Henley Literary Festival and regional farmers markets.
There is golf at Henley and Huntercombe and racing at nearby Ascot, Windsor and Newbury. There are excellent walks beside the river and in the nearby Chiltern Hills.
The garden is a particularly fine feature of the property. The front garden provides plenty of parking and side access. The rear garden is delightful, divided into two areas, the first runs away from the house with a patio area leading to the lawn with nicely established borders and a gate through to the second section. This area has some mature specimen trees and is again mainly laid to lawn. At the bottom of the garden is a large timber garden studio, with a workshop area and a large reception room, which would be ideal for a home office, gym or just a lovely breakout room from which to enjoy the garden or convert for guests.
Leave Henley towards Reading on the A 4415, go through Shiplake, passing the war memorial. Go past Shiplake college and take the next on the right signposted to Binfield Heath. School Fields is the second turning on the right and Greenways is towards the end of School Fields on the left.
