A superb development opportunity in one of Ascot’s premier roads

Set within almost ten acres of beautiful mature gardens and grounds, Swinley Edge is a detached period house that has been in same family since its construction in 1938. Enjoying a secluded and tranquil setting, the house offers spacious accommodation set out over two floors and subject to planning permission, presents an increasingly rare opportunity for replacement by a new, individually designed house.

Alternatively, it offers an excellent opportunity for comprehensive refurbishment and extension (subject to planning permission). It is worth noting that whilst the property sits within the Metropolitan Greenbelt area, the existing house has not been extended previously and is sold with full permitted development rights.

The vendors have commissioned details of a number of schemes that have been designed to take into account both the National Planning Policy Framework and Bracknell Forest Borough Council’s adopted and emerging development plan policies. Briefly, each scheme was assessed from a particular type of purchaser’s viewpoint. Some options include the refurbishment of the existing property, duly extended for those wanting to keep the existing property with its character features and others designed to accommodate a purchaser who requires a complete rebuild on site to create their own bespoke house. There would seem to be a number of different alternatives that are possible; purchasers are therefore advised to take their own specific professional planning advice.

Outside

The beautiful grounds are undoubtedly a fine feature of the property and include wooded areas with paths providing wonderful walks, areas of lawn, an old herbaceous border, a vegetable garden, and bowling green. A wide variety of mature trees and shrubs provide year-round interest, with an explosion of seasonal colour provided by a profusion of Rhododendrons. To the front, the property is approached via a sweeping driveway culminating in an extensive turning circle that affords access to the double garage and provides parking for numerous vehicles.

Situation

Swinley Edge enjoys a semi-rural Green Belt location yet is within easy reach of the day-to-day amenities provided by Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale. The nearby towns of Windsor, Guildford, Camberley and Bracknell offer more extensive shopping, leisure and cultural facilities.

The area has a rural and leafy feel yet is perfectly positioned for easy access to the M3 motorway which provides road-users a direct route to the major road networks including the M25 for access to Heathrow Airport. Regular rail services to London are available from Ascot and Sunningdale stations.

There is a superb choice schools in the vicinity, in both the state and independent sectors, including Charters School, The Marist Schools, St Georges, St Mary's, Papplewick, and Hall Grove, along with the ACS International School in Egham.

Sporting facilities in the area include prestigious golf clubs including Swinley Forest (just 0.3 miles away from the property) Wentworth, Sunningdale, and The Berkshire; horse racing at Ascot and Windsor; horse riding on Chobham Common and in Windsor Great Park. Attractions for the family include Windsor Castle, Legoland, the 4,800 Windsor Great Park, Virginia Water Lake and Savill Garden.

Directions

With From Strutt & Parker's Ascot office on your right, proceed to the mini roundabout and turn left into Station Hill. Continue down the hill, passing the railway station, and through South Ascot. Immediately after passing the playing fields on the right, turn right into Coronation Road and follow the road for approximately 0.7 miles. Swinley Edge will be found on the right hand side, just before the right hand turn into Bodens Ride.
