An excellent character cottage found in very well regarded village. Binfield Heath is set in open countryside yet within easy reach of Reading and Henley and comes with off street parking too allocated to the back of the property.
The cottage has a beautiful setting and offers the best of village life yet is not isolated from amenities and transport links. The kitchen has been extended to include a pitched roof dining area with bi-fold doors opening to a well stocked garden and patio area which is perfect for entertaining. A lot of time and devotion has gone into making this cottage garden a sheer delight and once you get to the bottom there is a pretty veranda in which to enjoy it from as well as an office, garage and electric car charge point
