An outstanding family house, enviably tucked away within a private lane, with the River Thames to the rear and countryside to the front.

Longwaters is an outstanding family house offering spacious and flexible living space, and is enviably tucked away within a private lane, with the River Thames to the rear and countryside to the front. This spacious home provides a total of 4,026 sq. ft. of living space with the benefit of air conditioning throughout, and is at one with its surroundings, with a delightful outlook over beautifully maintained gardens. The spacious and versatile accommodation flows naturally between formal and informal relaxation areas and is perfectly arranged to suit modern family living.

The ground floor rooms emanate from a reception hall that welcomes visitors to the triple aspect drawing room, with its large rear aspect window offering views of the river. This room and the adjoining dining room form an impressive area, ideal for relaxed living and entertaining, enhanced by direct access to the rear terrace via patio doors, and enjoying a southerly aspect. The fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room provides ample space for a dining table, perfect for more informal occasions. Situated off the kitchen is a lobby with a cloakroom, outside access and an internal door to the triple garage, which in turn leads to a utility room, store room and an additional cloakroom. The ground floor further comprises a good-size study.

Upstairs, the landing boasts a large window offering wonderful views over countryside to the front. There are five bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level, including the principal suite comprising a bedroom, extensively fitted dressing room and a bathroom. Bedroom 2 is light and airy thanks to four skylights and benefits from an en suite shower room, along with a built-in store cupboard that extends the entire width of the room. It is worth noting that the loft has been boarded and therefore provides excellent storage space.

Outside

The gardens complement the house perfectly and are beautifully designed with expanses of lawn and well stocked beds and borders to provide visual interest. Entry to the property is through a 5-bar gate opening onto a block-paved driveway that leads to a parking and turning area, and affords direct access to the triple garage. There is an extensive wisteria-covered terrace behind the house that is supremely placed to take full advantage of the southerly aspect and provides superb outdoor dining and relaxation space. The rear lawned gardens are enclosed by hedging and a pedestrian gate provides access to the River Thames towpath, ideal for pleasant riverside walks to Windsor and Maidenhead.

Situation

Longwaters enjoys an enviable location on the River Thames at Dorney Reach, opposite Monkey Island and close to Bray Marina and Dorney Rowing Lake. Situated towards the end of a private road, the house enjoys a high degree of seclusion and privacy and is supremely placed for the local shops at Eton Wick, Eton, and Taplow; a Sainsbury’s store and a retail centre (Bishop Centre) are also within easy reach. An extensive range of shopping and leisure amenities are also available at nearby Windsor and Maidenhead.

For the commuter, rail services to London Paddington are available from Maidenhead, Taplow and Slough (all due to benefit from Crossrail, the high-speed service), and to London Waterloo from both Windsor and Datchet. Road travel is equally as convenient, with the M4 (Junction 7) providing access to Central London, Heathrow Airport, the West Country, and linking with the M25; the M40 may be reached via the Marlow By-Pass A404 at Maidehead Thicket.

Recreational facilities in the area include boating on the River Thames; golf at numerous courses including Maidenhead and Marlow, and further afield at Wentworth and Sunningdale; horse racing at Windsor and Ascot; the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead; horse riding on Dorney Common. Wonderful walks may be enjoyed at Dorney Wetlands and along the river to Windsor or Maidenhead.

There are numerous well-regarded schools in the area, both in the state and independent sectors, including Dorney School (just 0.2 miles away from the property).

Directions

Leave the M4 motorway at Junction 7 and follow the A4 towards Maidenhead. After about a mile, turn left at the traffic lights into Marsh Lane and after a further half mile, take the second turning on the right into Harcourt Road. Follow the road to the end, bear left into Dorney Reach Road and proceed to the end where you will continue onto the private section of road.
