Magnificent late Georgian townhouse, just moments from the Long Walk
This fine Grade II Listed late Georgian townhouse is set in a prominent position in the heart of the desirable and historic town of Windsor. Dating from about 1836, the property boasts a triple aspect, four bedrooms and a light and spacious interior with high ceilings, fireplaces, high skirtings and refurbished sash windows throughout. The original features are complemented by tasteful interior design with a blend of well-considered modern additions; a property of timeless character whilst not forgetting the demands of a modern lifestyle.
The house is entered via a striking and welcoming reception hall with a Travertine marble tiled floor that extends through to the dining room, kitchen and utility room. Of particular note is the impressive sitting room with its magnificent full-height French windows with original wood shutters, that open the room out to the front verandah and garden. Additional features are the working fireplace with a slate hearth and stripped wooden flooring.
The dining room, kitchen and utility room are extensively fitted with custom-built, hand painted wooden cabinetry, while the kitchen also includes an island/breakfast bar that is perfect for informal dining, a useful larder complete with a slate cold shelf, dual fridges, a dishwasher, an AGA and discreet pelmet lighting. The kitchen also benefits from French doors opening onto the rear courtyard garden.
On the first floor is the drawing room, styled in muted tones to create an elegant and tranquil space for relaxing and entertaining. A working fireplace with a slate hearth provides a focal point whilst twin sash windows flood the room with natural light and open to reveal ornate wrought-iron balconies.
The master bedroom benefits from an en suite dressing room and a spacious fully-tiled bathroom with a separate shower. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and all with fitted wardrobe and cupboard storage, serviced by a family bathroom.
To the front, the charm of the building has been enhanced by creative planting and landscaping. The garden, set behind a low brick retaining wall topped by decorative wrought-iron railings, has been meticulously maintained and is showcased at night by a period Conservation Area street light. There is also a delightful veranda, with a curved roof typical of the propertys era, which may be accessed from the sitting room.
To the rear, behind the privacy of a high stuccoed wall, is a charming courtyard-style garden, lit from all sides by wall lights and providing superb outdoor relaxation space. A remotely controlled oak gate allows vehicular access should off-road parking be required. The property also benefits from street permit parking.
The historic market town of Windsor is one of the UKs most prestigious locations, and the propertys proximity to Windsors two railway stations is key, for those wishing to commute. The many attractions include Windsor Castle, the official residence of the Her Majesty the Queen, pretty streets, beautiful parks and proximity to London (29 minutes to London Paddington from Windsor & Eton Central). Windsor offers a fine variety of high street and independent shopping options, while some of the countrys finest restaurants are within easy reach.
Leisure facilities are superb and in abundance, with world-famous golf courses on Windsors doorstep; horse racing at Windsor and nearby Ascot; walking, cycling and horse riding in the spectacular Windsor Great Park; and the river Thames for boating and rowing.
Windsor is also fortunate to be in close proximity to some of the countrys finest schools including Queensmead, St. Georges and Upton House in Windsor, St. Georges, Papplewick, Heathfield and St. Marys in Ascot, Lambrook in Winkfield, and St. Johns Beaumont in Old Windsor.
With Strutt & Parkers Windsor office on your left, continue along Sheet Street, which bears left into Kings Road. You will find the property on your right-hand side, on the corner of Grove Road.
