Situated in an enviable position with its own access to the Great Park, Southmead is a substantial property, redesigned by the well-renowned CSK Architects in Eton, with a discerning and busy household in mind. The striking design style and creative use of glass has resulted in exceptionally light and spacious living space, perfectly created for both family living and entertaining. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the bespoke fittings including the striking spiral staircase with a double-storey curved glass window, to additional features including under-floor heating combined with traditional radiators, a double-sided fire belly providing heat transfer to both the drawing room and games room, and an integrated Sonos sound system.
The ground floor, featuring oak flooring throughout, is arranged to provide a dual-aspect drawing room, an adjoining games room with two walls of bi-folding doors that open the room out to the gardens, and an office with French doors opening out to the terrace, useful to those seeking to work from home. At the hub of the house is the comprehensively fitted open-plan kitchen/family/dining room, providing superb dining and relaxation space, enhanced by a wall of bi-folding doors that open out to the rear terrace and garden.
Located off the kitchen is a wing, playing host to a utility room with direct access to the garage, a cloakroom, and a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and dressing area. The bedroom enjoys a triple aspect and features full-height sliding glazed doors that overlook the rear garden and bring the outside in.
The first floor is equally well-proportioned and includes a light-filled sitting room with bi-folding doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the rear garden. There is also a sumptuous suite comprising a bedroom, dressing room and a sitting room, two further en suite bedrooms, one of which is currently being utilised as a gym, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom are situated on the second floor.
This property has 1.25 acres of land.
The house is set within landscaped gardens, beautifully designed by Fiona Harrison of Fiona Harrison Designs. They have been created to provide superb outdoor dining and relaxation space during the warmer seasons, with year-round visual interest. At the rear of the house there is a sun terrace from which a decorative boardwalk leads alongside the lawn, past a contemporary pergola/seating area and through a lightly wooded area to a pedestrian gate providing access to the Great Park. To the front, a gravelled driveway provides access to the garage and culminates in a large parking area with ample space for multiple vehicles.
Queen Annes Road is a highly regarded private road adjacent to the spectacular 4,800 acre Great Park, and while enjoying a semi-rural setting, the property is conveniently located for Windsor town centre. Windsor itself boasts a wide variety of shopping and leisure facilities and is in close proximity to some of the countrys finest schools, including St. Georges and Upton House in Windsor.
For the commuter, the M4 motorway is nearby, whilst Windsors two rail stations offer regular services to London Waterloo and London Paddingon (via Slough).
Leisure facilities are superb and plentiful, with world-class golf courses on Windsors doorstep, spectacular parks, and the River Thames for boating and rowing.
Travelling in a westerly direction, exit the M4 at Junction 6 and take 1st exit off the roundabout (signposted Windsor A332). Follow the road to a large roundabout controlled by traffic lights and take the 2nd exit into Goswell Road. Proceed straight on at the next roundabout into Osborne Road and continue to another roundabout where you will continue straight across. At the next roundabout (facing the Long Walk), take the 3rd exit into Kings Road and then the 3rd turning on the right, into Queen Annes Road. Southmead will be found on the left hand side, as the road bears around to the left.Read all
