A lovely Grade II listed , 4 - 5 bedroom detached house, presented in excellent order, situated in this rural hamlet between Maidenhead and Twyford.Available immediately
A beautifully presented detached Grade II Listed property with original parts dating from the 16th Century having being rebuilt and extended approximately 20 years ago offering generously proportioned rooms having been further extended in 2010 to create the stylish family home. One of the outstanding features is the thatched barn (a former cattle shelter) which sits to the front of the property which measures almost 40’ long internally creating a superb living and entertaining space with exposed timber framing, a vaulted ceiling and limestone floor and a mezzanine area at one end. Also forming part of the original building is wide entrance hall which connects through to the rest of the house and has a winding staircase to the mezzanine overlooking the barn, making a useful study, library or occasional bedroom. Heading into the newer parts, the living room enjoys a westerly aspect, a limestone floor and a fire place with wood burner in one corner. This room has doors leading through the oak framed conservatory with vaulted ceiling under a clay tile roof. This continues across part of the rear of the house and has a further access into the kitchen and family room via a well-equipped utility room. The farm house style kitchen is fitted with handmade oak fronted cabinets with granite work tops with a central island incorporating deep drawers, open shelving, a microwave and win rack at one end. The kitchen also features a large range cooker, integrated dishwasher, Belfast sink and space for an American style side by side, fridge freezer. A wide arch lead through to a triple aspect family/dining room with views over the front and rear gardens.
Upstairs are four good sized bedrooms, the master suite having an en-suite shower room. There are two further bathrooms one with a separate shower enclosure.
Outside, the gardens extend to just under ¾ acre bordered with mature hedging with the front and rear gardens separated by a tall copper beech hedge. The rear garden features a beautiful oak tree in the centre of a large level lawn and a wide paved terrace running along the rear of the house. A pair of 5 bar gates lead into a wide gravelled driveway to the front, affording parking for several cars. A separate driveway runs down the western boundary to a detached 6m x 5m double garage with gardener’s cloakroom and a fully boarded loft space with natural light. There is also a good storage shed and oil storage tank behind the garage.
