"Moormead" Is An Ideal Starter Family Home With Potential To Grow Into With A Large Extension (STPP)
An end terrace with wrap around corner plot garden giving massive scope to extend... Yes please!
The current owner has lovingly cared for this home throughout the years and some important (and expensive) improvements have recently been made, such as new double glazed windows and doors fitted three years ago and new boiler just four years ago. Laying the groundwork for the next owner to do as they please.
On the ground floor the entrance hallway leads to the all important downstairs WC and reception rooms.
The deceptively spacious lounge/ diner has large windows and double patio doors leading out to the garden.
There is still the old lobby "utility hall" with back door offering scope to increase the size of the living room within the footprint of the existing
The kitchen is located at the front of the house with a nice view overlooking the street and green beyond.
Perfectly liveable but some updating might be preferable.
Upstairs there are two decent sized doubles and a large single (which can just about fit a double bed)
There is also a shower room which was refitted around three years ago. Plenty of space to put back in a bath if preferred.
At the end of the hall is a large cupboard which could be changed into a shower room ideal for growing families.
The garden is an L shape that wraps around the side and rear, easily 5-6 metres to the side so extension potential galore! (subject to the usual planning permission)
Although no driveway currently, there is a lay by immediately outside the front and street parking to the side. Others in the immediate area have had dropped kerb requests accepted so this could be an option for the future if driveway parking is on your wish list.
There is a garage in a block which also has a parking space in front.
A well looked after home which will appeal to those seeking space on a budget, extension potential and investors.
My favourite aspects are the garden, surprisingly spacious lounge and proximity to Ashenbury Park.
Just at the end of the road is the entrance to Ashenbury Park which offers an abundance of nature, muddy walks and kids play park.
Waingels Secondary School is a short walk away as is Willowbank Junior School and Woodley C of E Primary school.
For everyday conveniences including a Tesco express, pharmacy, doctors, takeaways etc, Loddon Vale shopping complex is within ten minutes walking distance.
A little further away is Woodley Precinct with ample supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and boutique independent gift shops.
There is also Woodford Park not far away which has large open fields, duck pond, two kids play parks and leisure centre with gym.

12 Lunds Farm Road (Moormead) has been my home for 30 years, since I bought it in 1992. Whilst living here I was able to drive daily to work in Sunningdale, later in Maidenhead and most recently several times a week to Woking. Its proximity to the A4 and to the A329M makes it a perfect home for working anywhere to the East of Reading.
When I first viewed it I liked the airiness, size and shape of the living room, sufficient to accommodate occasional family gatherings and sometimes even the 20 members of a club to which I belonged. The 3 bedrooms struck me as spacious and even the single room can accommodate a double bed!
The garden has always given me pleasure, although only during lockdown did I ever really have the time to tame it. In its current state it is frequented by numerous small birds and butterflies, and at one time 3 hedgehogs were regular visitors. Now the garden still manages to surprise me with an unexpected crop of cherries this summer and a raspberry crop 2 years running, from a rogue raspberry cane. Of course the area beside the house presents a good opportunity for extension, STPP, which I do not feel equipped to tackle.
I enjoy living in this part of Lunds Farm Road, overlooking the grassy area around three sides of which our houses are built. During the Thursday claps of lockdown we could all look across and wave at each other.
Walking in the woodland area of nearby Ashenbury Park, which has a recently refurbished play area, was another lockdown bonus.
During recent jury service I discovered just how well served we are by the Route 13 and 14 bus stops, just round the corner in Tippings Lane, from which one can easily access the main Woodley Shopping Precinct and Reading town centre.
Having carried out a number of regular checks and remedial works over the years, in 2019 I carried out a further series of works. These included a refitted bathroom and new doors and UPVC windows. I had intended to live here for many years but my plans have now changed, so I must reluctantly pass my home on to someone else who can continue to appreciate what it already has to offer, and perhaps develop its potential further.
I hope that whoever buys my home will be as happy here as I have been.
