This characterful double-fronted cottage is close to the National Trust-owned Cliveden Estate, with its mature woodland, extensive gardens and luxury hotel, the amenities of Maidenhead and walks along the river Thames. With its charming front elevation, the property sits well within this delightful village.
Believed to date back to the Victorian era but extended post-War, the property offers much character with period features, including wall panel detailing and sash windows. Many of the rooms feature built-in storage and bricked fireplaces. Internally the property is dated and requires some modernisation, but has excellent potential and all the makings of a wonderful home.
On the ground floor, the property is entered via a hallway, with reception rooms to either side accessed by double doors. The left-hand reception room steps lead down to a sitting room with a glazed wall overlooking the garden and an adjoining kitchen. A rear door leads out to the garden and a cloakroom/WC.
The first floor accommodation is arranged around a split-level landing, with two double bedrooms at the front of the house and a master bedroom at the rear, together with a shower room and an eaves storage cupboard.
Victoria Cottage enjoys a charming location on Taplow’s High Street, moments from the village green and popular pub, The Oak & Saw. The village is well situated to access walks along the Jubilee River, River Thames and Cliveden Woodlands. The luxury hotel Cliveden House is within close proximity, with its grounds and acclaimed restaurant. Amenities can be found in Maidenhead, and within a short drive there are restaurants and supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and Tesco. The village is ideal for London airports and road links are easily accessible via the A404(M) and M4 motorway. Taplow is in a great location for families, with an extensive range of schools in the vicinity. Regular train services run from Taplow (0.8 miles), travelling to Reading (15 minutes) and London Paddington (25 minutes). The future arrival of Crossrail is set to enhance commuting into the City, the West End and Heathrow Airport.
This pleasant detached cottage has a whitewashed façade and front garden set behind a manicured hedge with pedestrian gate. To the left of the property there is an off-street parking space on a tarmac driveway, providing space for one car.
The rear garden is enclosed by wooden panel fencing and mature hedging affording a secluded feel. A south-easterly aspect makes it a delightful spot from which to enjoy breakfast on the paved patio, which adjoins the house and leads to a cottage-style garden with timber summerhouse.
