Property description

This historic, important listed (grade II) cottage is bound to appeal to those looking for something out of the ordinary. The quirkiness of the accommodation adds greatly to its charm and the long rear garden adds to its appeal. EPC exempt.

Having once been a public house, parts of the property are believed to date from the 17th Century with later additions. Set in the picturesque High Street, the property is within walking distance of the railway station (half an hour to London Paddington) within a very short amble of pubs and shops.


Theale is located 5 miles (8.0 km) west of the centre of Reading and is separated from the suburbs of that town by the M4. It is located on the old Bath Road, which crosses the motorway here at junction 12 (Reading West). Theale railway station is near the centre of the village and is served by local services from Reading to Newbury. Theale owes much of its past and present prosperity to its good road communications links. In the pre-railway era, the village was an important staging post on the old Bath Road, as witnessed by the number of historic pubs to be found on its High Street. There are also Chinese, Indian, and French cuisine restaurants. Sports facilities include Theale Green Sports Centre and Theale golf club. State schools are well provided for in the form of Theale Green Secondary School and the excellent newly built Theale C of E Primary School.


Entrance lobby, large double reception room with fireplace, separate dining room with fireplace and door to rear garden, kitchen, two double bedrooms, study or third bedroom (restricted head height).

There is also a brick-built outbuilding with a utility room and as shower room.


The long rear garden has been landscaped in an interesting way to provide outdoor 'rooms'/areas, each with a slightly different feel. There is also a brick-built outbuilding (as described under 'accommodation' above) with utility room and shower room, a timber summer house and storage sheds.
