A charming, detached cottage with a delightful garden, in a desirable semi-rural setting

With elevations of red and grey decorative brickwork, a detached family house offering appealing character features combined with up-to-date styling and an open-plan living area ideally suited to a modern lifestyle. There are two reception rooms either side of the front entrance hall: a sitting room centred around a fireplace, and on the opposite side a flexible-use study/playroom which features a raised-hearth fireplace and a door opening into the convivial open-plan kitchen/family room. This comfortable living space features a double-faced wood-burning stove while the modern kitchen has a length of units that create a functional divide to the adjoining dining area. There is ample space for a relaxed, casual seating area and an archway leads into a versatile anteroom where there is access to a cloakroom and utility room, along with French doors to a garden terrace at the rear.

On the first floor, the calming neutral décor continues and there are four bedrooms, two of which showcase vintage cast-iron fireplaces. The generous, principal bedroom has fitted wardrobe storage and the advantage of an en suite shower room, with a well-appointed family bathroom completing the upstairs accommodation.

Outside

A white-painted picket fence forms the boundary to the front of the cottage with a central gate opening to a paved pathway which leads to the entrance doorway. Pretty planting includes flowering shrubs, and climbing plants that frame the front elevation and clamber over the attractive portico. A side driveway provides access to the garage and the rear garden, which features a paved terrace adjoining the house and wrapping around to lead to a further seating area with an outlook over the delightful garden. Mature shrubs border an area of lawn which extends to a circular paved terrace and a summerhouse/home office, with light and power, tucked away at the far margin and offering a further spot in which to sit and enjoy the southerly aspect. An adjoining shed provides useful storage space.

Situation

Located in the desirable setting of Winkfield Row, which is well placed for Ascot High Street and its range of useful amenities, shops and cultural attractions. Transport links are excellent with regular train services to London Waterloo from Ascot and Bracknell stations, whilst high-speed Crossrail provides access to London from Maidenhead. For road-users, junctions joining the M4 and M3 are within easy reach providing access to Heathrow Airport, Central London, the West Country and the M25.

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, and horse racing at Windsor and Ascot. For walking and riding enthusiasts, Windsor Great Park and the surrounding countryside offer the ideal settings for outdoor pursuits.

Educational opportunities in the region are superb, in both the state and private sectors, and include the highly regarded Lambrook School, less than 100 metres away from the property.

With Strutt & Parker’s Sunningdale office on your left, continue to the T-junction and turn left onto London Road/A30.

Take the 2nd exit onto Winkfield Road/A330 and follow the road until you reach dual mini roundabouts and continue straight over both to continue on the A330. After a further half a mile, turn left onto Forest Road/B3034 and continue for about 1.5 miles before turning right into Chavey Down Road/B3017.
