Property Details

Philip Baker Property is delighted to present this unique three double bed home, bursting with charm and character. The semi-detached property was originally built in the 1800's as the farm workers' cottages for the Redlands Farm Estate. The original structure was extended in Victorian times, and as such also boasts beautiful Victorian tiling and other period features throughout. The property is conveniently situated near Reading University, Royal Berkshire Hospital and Reading Town Centre with fantastic commuter links. With three bedrooms and a downstairs bathroom, the property has the potential to be further extended to create a first floor bathroom.
Viewing comes highly recommended for this unique, beautiful home.
