IN line with this week’s Film and Fame issue we found a home in South Stoke, near Checkendon, with an annexe that would make a good base for a visiting film crew, or the stars of your own extended family.
Situated in the centre of pretty South Stoke (not surprisingly, the area has been used as a location for many a film) No. 8 Chapel Close has been designed to provide either five good-sized bedrooms or three bedrooms and a guest wing with living room, bedroom and bathroom. The living room even has its own double-height Juliet balcony which looks out over the garden.
Tim Sherston, director at Jackson-Stops, which is marketing the property, said: “I think the annexe gives it an edge over other properties. Many families are looking for just this sort of flexibility in a new home.
“With more and more families looking to live together, either offering that added comfort to ageing parents or having to accommodate their grown-up children for longer than they might first have envisaged, the annexe offers them all a comprehensive solution.”
In addition, the integral garage offers potential to extend the accommodation on the ground floor even further. There’s also 0.17 acres of gardens, two reception rooms, a conservatory, utility room, cloakroom with shower and a kitchen/breakfast room.
“The vendors have enjoyed living in this house and love the area,” continued Tim. “There’s even an hourly bus to Goring [shops and mainline train station to London Paddington and Reading].
“It’s timed to coincide with the commuter trains, and has been known to wait for the train if it happens to be a few minutes late.”
No. 8 Chapel Close is on the market with Jackson-Stops & Staff’s Goring office at a guide price of £625,000. Call (01491) 871111 for information.
