A handsome Victorian former farm house in a tucked-away setting

Pinkneys Farm House, as its name suggests, formed part of the neighbouring Pinkneys Farm which had been in the same family for generations. Approached via a long sweeping driveway, it offers period charm and generously proportioned accommodation, providing a home ideally suited to both family living and entertaining.

On the ground floor, the spacious reception hall leads through to the elegant sitting room, which features a fireplace and extends into a bay with a decorative supporting column. This light and airy room benefits from the natural light flooding the adjoining garden room that provides a relaxed spot in which to sit and enjoy the outlook; double doors open this room out to the gardens. The formal dining room enjoys a south and easterly aspect and provides the ideal setting for both family dining and entertaining, with the kitchen being adjacent. Fitted with a wide range of wall and base level units, the kitchen has a series of steps down into a sizeable utility room, fitted to echo the style of the kitchen. This in turn opens out to a useful boot room and adjoining laundry room. Also located off the reception hall is a guest bedroom (currently utilised as a family room) with its own outside access, and en suite wet room. The ground floor further comprises a useful cloakroom.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, including the principal suite comprising a dressing room and an en suite bathroom. A family bathroom with a separate WC completes the accommodation on this floor.

A large cellar, accessed from the ground floor reception hall, provides storage options.

Covenants and/or restrictions: There are restrictions /covenants listed on the Land Registry Title deed, details of which will be made available by the vendors’ solicitors on request.

This property has 1 acres of land.

Outside

The gardens are particularly noteworthy, being beautifully designed and planted with a pleasing variety of shrubs and plants. There are stunning mature trees, an orchard, secluded pockets providing tranquil seating, a spacious vine-covered pergola with space for dining beneath its shelter, as well as a formal rose garden. The property is approached via a length of driveway, edged by manicured evergreen hedging, leading to a driveway that provides parking for numerous vehicles. The double garage, with twin electrically operated doors, also houses a workshop, a store room and a gardener’s WC. For tennis enthusiasts, there is an ‘all weather’ court within the grounds.

Regular rail services are available to London (Paddington) from Furze Platt and Maidenhead stations, and to Marylebone from High Wycombe station. It is worth noting that Crossrail, the high speed service, will provide links to Central London from Maidenhead.

The area is renowned for its well regarded schools, both state and independent, and include Herries in Cookham Dean, Cookham Dean Primary School, St. Piran’s and Claire’s Court in Maidenhead, and Sir William Borlase Grammar in Marlow.
