16 Park Street
Bears Rails Park is a highly-regarded development set within several acres of communal grounds, on the former site of the Old Windsor Hospital, backing onto Crown woodland and Windsor Great Park.
A charming Grade II listed link-detached property that has been beautifully and thoughtfully refurbished and is a testament to the current owners obvious design flair and eye for detail. The stylish light-filled accommodation is arranged over two floors and combines the amenities of modern-day living with retained character features including leaded mullioned glazing and some exposed beams.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed via a welcoming reception hall with solid wood flooring and briefly comprises a generous triple-aspect sitting room with solid wood flooring, a bay window, working period fireplace and a dining area with panelled walls. The modern kitchen is fitted with a sleek range of glossy units with wooden worktops, a breakfast bar, and integrated appliances; French doors open the room out to the rear garden, perfect for seasonal al fresco dining. The ground floor is completed by a master bedroom with built-in storage and an en suite shower room, an additional bedroom with a wall of built-in storage, a spacious contemporary family bathroom with separate walk-in shower, an under-stairs utility area and a cloakroom.
The first floor is host to a spacious snug/study, offering the potential for a variety of uses and featuring a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.
Bears Rails Park is accessed via double wrought-iron gates with a sweeping driveway leading through the extensive communal grounds to private resident and visitor parking, and the propertys garage. There is a separate building (formerly The Old Jail House) in which No. 19 has a lockable storage room. A private block-paved pathway leading to the front door is bordered by areas of lawn with mature shrubs and borders.
To the rear, the property enjoys its own private low-maintenance courtyard garden with gravelled areas, raised flowerbeds, a generous paved terrace area, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, and a bespoke timber shed. A pedestrian gate provides access to the communal grounds.
