Bringing up a family in a home which has been designed and finished to a very high standard and is situated in a beautiful leafy setting sounds idyllic. Woodbridge in Frimley, from Thames Valley Housing, is a new development of executive family homes, which offers just that
This new development of 10 luxurious converted apartments and houses in a locally listed Edwardian building, along with 10 stylish, new family houses and 14 apartments are all set in lovely landscaped grounds. The homes occupy the site of Frimley Cottage Hospital, which was founded in 1908, and the original red brick hospital building still retains many period features.
The four bedroom spacious houses are perfect for growing families and have been built to complement the original locally-listed Edwardian building at the heart of the development. The new homes are energy-efficient, easy to maintain, and included bi-fold doors that open out on to a pretty private garden. Kitchens come with electric, ceramic hob, oven and extractor plus an integrated fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. Master bedrooms include a fitted wardrobe and carpet and there is wood-effect flooring to the ground floor. Each house also comes with an allocated parking space.
