A fine example of an Elizabethan country house, within 4.64 acres
Dating back to 1580, The Old Farm is an outstanding example of an Elizabethan country house that has been sympathetically renovated by the present owners to provide a stunning interior that successfully blends period features with modern-day luxuries. It is rich in exposed beams and many additional features including vaulted ceilings, period fireplaces including an impressive inglenook style fireplace in the sitting room, Travertine flooring throughout much of the ground floor, leaded light windows and latch doors. The accommodation offers immense flexibility and the many ground floor rooms include a triple aspect drawing room, a good-sized dining room and an elegant sitting room, all with stone fireplaces, and a country style kitchen/breakfast room featuring a tall arched window and part vaulted, beamed ceiling.
The first floor is arranged to provide an impressive master bedroom with an en suite dressing room and spacious bathroom, a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.
In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a guest/staff apartment comprising a sitting room/kitchen, bedroom and shower room, along with a summer house with a reception room/bedroom, kitchenette and shower room.
The Old Farm is approached via electrically operated double gates opening onto a sweeping gravel driveway, flanked by areas of lawn and ornamental rose beds. The driveway culminates in a parking area and provides access to the garaging. The lawned front gardens feature a central parterre style garden enclosed by clipped box hedging. Additional interest is provided by an original working well. To the rear, the gardens have been designed to create areas of visual interest and there are various seating areas and also a barbeque area.
For golf enthusiasts, the club room will also be of interest, equipped with a drinks bar, a wine store and a cloakroom, and situated within the former stable block. Also located in the block is a double garage and 3 stalls/store rooms. Further leisure facilities include an outdoor swimming pool area with adjoining summer house, an all weather tennis court and a barbecue area.
The Old Farm enjoys a semi-rual location in Winkfield Row, yet is well placed for transport networks and local amenities. Heathrow Airport is easily accessible, while executive/private aviation facilities are available at Fairoaks, White Waltham or Farnborough Airports. There are regular train services to London Waterloo from Ascot and Bracknell stations; London is accessible from Maidenhead (due to benefit from the high-speed service, Crossrail). The M4, which may be accessed via Junctions 8/9 or 6, provides access to Heathrow Airport, Central London, the West Country and the M25; the M3 may be accessed at Junction 3.
Sporting and recreational facilities in the area are excellent and include golf at the world famous Wentworth, at Sunningdale, The Berkshire and Swinley Forest golf clubs; horse racing at Windsor and Ascot; polo at Coworth Park, The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club and Guards Polo Club; and walking and riding in Windsor Great Park and the surrounding countryside.
Educational opportunities in the region are superb, in both the state and private sectors, and include the highly regarded Lambrook (within striking distance of the property).
