A sensational detached house with landscaped gardens and the use of extensive communal grounds
With distinctive Georgian-style symmetry and dentil block fascia, the property is an impressive family home, offering light and airy rooms with contemporary styling, and a neutral colour palette throughout, creating an oasis of calm.
The accommodation lends itself particularly well to both family living and large scale entertaining, with both the spacious dining room and the adjacent kitchen/breakfast/sun room opening directly out to the rear south-west facing terrace and idyllic gardens beyond, thereby extending the entertainment and relaxation space. This space is further complemented by the generously proportioned dual aspect drawing room with a gas real flame effect fireplace as a focal point.
The kitchen/breakfast/sun room is an undoubted showpiece of the home being a fabulous multi-functional open-plan space, perfect for relaxation and informal dining. This room includes a kitchen area fitted with an extensive range of cabinetry, marble worksurfaces, a range-style cooker, and a breakfast bar that creates a natural divide to the light-filled seating area. There is an adjoining utility room whilst off the reception hall is a good size study, comprehensively fitted with a bespoke range of furniture, and a cloakroom.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the sumptuous principal with extensive built-in wardrobes, an en suite dressing room and shower room. The second bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room, whilst the remaining two are serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms enjoy splendid views over the landscaped gardens and communal grounds beyond.
The gardens complement the house perfectly and are beautifully designed and maintained, with a formal layout to beds and terraces, reflecting the uniformity of the architecture of the house. A pergola creates a central walkway feature with mature shrubs in beds to either side and climbing plants adding decoration.
A large paved terrace adjoins the rear of the house providing opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst enjoying the south-westerly aspect. A pathway leads from here to a further paved seating area set within the lawn. Manicured hedging creates natural boundaries and encloses a secret garden area to the side of the property where clipped shrubs form an immaculate display.
The property is approached via electrically operated wrought-iron gates opening onto a sweeping block-paved driveway, curving past lawns with mature trees and leading to the detached double garage, part of which has been converted to provide a home-working space (currently used as a dog grooming parlour).
Beyond the formal private gardens are around 13 acres of beautiful parkland-style communal grounds, with a picturesque lake and a meadow, all of which combine to provide pleasant walks. We understand that the communal grounds are owned by Winkfield Place Management Co. Ltd, within which the property has a share.
Winkfield Place Lodge is situated in a delightful semi-rural location, opposite Windsor Forest, yet is well placed for the motorway network, Heathrow Airport and local shopping facilities. It is located almost equidistant to both Ascot and Windsor, which offer an excellent selection of shopping, leisure, and cultural amenities.
Communication connections are excellent with the M3 and M4 motorways within easy reach and linking to major road networks; regular train services to London are available from Ascot Windsor. Rail services to London Paddington are also available from Maidenhead and Taplow, which are due to benefit from Crossrail, the new high-speed service.
Sporting and recreational facilities in the area are excellent and include polo at Guards & Royal County of Berkshire Polo Clubs, golf at Wentworth, Sunningdale, The Berkshire and Swinley Forest golf clubs, horse-racing at Ascot and Windsor, walking, cycling and riding in the 4,800 acre Windsor Great Park, and rowing at Maidenhead Rowing Club and Dorney Lake.
Schooling is also well catered for, with a superb selection of schools including Lambrook, Ludgrove, Sunningdale, LVS Ascot, St. Georges and St. Marys Ascot, Papplewick and Eton College.
From the M3, exit at Junction 3 to join the A322 towards Bracknell and after approximately 1.8 mile, bear right onto Swinley Road. After a short distance, turn right onto Kings Ride and at the roundabout take the 2nd exit. Continue to follow the A332 and after approximately 2.2 miles bear left to join the B383.
