A charming, 17th century period 3 bedroom cottage, attached at one side, has recently been restored and refitted to a very high standard throughout, with approximately 150' pretty landscaped garden.

The Dolls House is Grade II listed, with a later, probably Georgian, façade, and is simply and very tastefully decorated, with a new smart central heating system.

Located in the sought-after village of Theale, and within easy walking distance to the station, primary school, shops and amenities, the property is also well positioned for easy access to junction 12 of the M4.

The property has delightful sunny gardens, with a cedar constructed garden room with sun terrace and summer dining areas, well stocked herbaceous borders, flowering and evergreen shrubs and mature trees.

The Dolls House enters from the High Street, Theale, and this is very much the preserved, residential, period end of the village, and all the properties along here are completely individual. The High Street has attractive herringbone brick pavers, traditional old street lights and bollards beside a pretty and level stone paved footpath. There are residents' parking permits with designated parking areas lying adjacent to the property.

The property is likely to be of medieval structure and therefore probably one of the oldest buildings in Theale. There have been works throughout the property that is of a style which began in the 14th century and continued as late as the 17th century. The quality of the property suggests this is an important house and possibly at one time early in its life, a pub.

Special features:
• Large 165' garden (approx.) to the rear, beautifully landscaped
• Recently installed smart central heating system with gas fired combi boiler, high quality modern radiators throughout, loft is boarded with lighting
• Interior condition is first class throughout
• Very pretty kitchen fully fitted with a range of cupboards and drawer units, quarry tiled flooring, modern stainless-steel sink, a fitted Rangemaster Leisure with gas oven and grill, 4 gas rings, extractor over, polished hardwood work surfaces, pretty beams to ceiling and window overlooking the rear garden
• The sitting room with dining area has large windows giving lots of light, high ceilings with beams, fine polished stained pine flooring and a large open log fire with raised York stone hearth
• Bathroom is in first class order
• Pretty Victorian fireplace in bedroom 1 with a range of fitted wardrobes
• Bedroom 2 also has a range of fitted wardrobes and shelves for shoes
• Attractive breakfast room with original quarry tiled and brick flooring
• The adjacent outbuilding consists of a utility room which has plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with a new Worcester boiler above. Also a shower room which is fitted to a high standard
• The pretty garden room with a paved summer dining and BBQ area in front
• Pedestrian side entrance from the road leads to the rear garden and is a very useful area for storing bikes, motorcycle etc

Half a mile away is a large Sainsbury's supermarket, and a new Ikea store, and in Englefield a new Cobbs Farmhouse with butchers, fishmonger, deli and restaurant.

An excellent medical centre is within walking distance and at the far end of the village there is a fine ancient church. This is one of the few villages left that has a proper heart and vibrancy during the course of the day and as it is by-passed now from the A4, peace at night.

A short drive away is the sought-after Englefield Primary School.
