A substantial riverside property, with far reaching views across countryside
Occupying an elevated position to take full advantage of its excellent riverside location and the commanding views across the countryside beyond, Mendota enjoys a high degree of tranquillity and is set within gardens that lead to approximately 90 ft of direct river frontage.
The house offers 2,568 sq feet of flexible living space and although the property would now benefit from modernisation, it presents a rare opportunity for those seeking a substantial home with immense potential to either upgrade and personalise, or for development (subject to planning consents).
The well proportioned living space is arranged over three floors, with many of the rooms enjoying wonderful views. The rural outlook provides a beautiful backdrop to the property and is complemented by the secluded setting. ?The ground floor is arranged to provide a triple aspect, light-filled sitting room with direct access to a balcony overlooking the gardens and river, a dining room, kitchen, utility room, and a cloakroom. ??Upstairs, there are four bedrooms including a master suite comprising a bedroom with an en suite dressing area and bathroom, and a family bathroom.
The lower ground level provides adaptable living space and comprises a bedroom with an en suite shower room, a family room, study, and two store rooms; there is also a useful cellar.
Set well back from the lane, Mendota enjoys a high degree of seclusion and privacy and is approached via a driveway providing access to the parking area at the front of the house, and double garage. To the rear, the lawned garden has been designed to gently slope down to the riverside where there is mooring (in need of some attention) and a slipway. Various areas within the garden provide excellent spots in which to relax and enjoy the view.
Mendota enjoys a peaceful tucked away location on the River Thames, within picturesque Cookham Dean. The property is situated in a delightful semi-rural setting, yet benefits from a high level of accessibility, being within easy reach of both the M4 and the M40 motorways, and regular rail services to London. It is worth noting that Maidenhead is due to benefit from Crossrail, the new high-speed service to London.
Cookham Dean is a highly regarded village with a church and a selection of nearby public houses and restaurants, including the community owned Jolly Farmer public house. Cookham Rise is nearby and is host to shops catering for day-to-day needs whilst Cookham, the pretty riverside town of Marlow and also Maidenhead are within easy reach and offer further more extensive facilities.
The area is renowned for its education opportunities with a wide range of schools, both in the state and independent sectors, including nearby Herries and Cookham Dean CE Primary School.
Sporting/leisure facilities in the area include golf at Winter Hill, Maidenhead, Marlow, Maidenhead, Temple and Harleyford Golf Clubs; tennis at Maidenhead, Bisham and Windsor; boating and rowing on the River Thames, Dorney Lake and at nearby Henley. The local countryside provides excellent walks and the nearby Winter Hill viewpoint offers outstanding views over the River Thames and countryside beyond.Read all
