Once a part of the gate lodge for Dropmore Park, the original parts of this beautifully presented home date back to the 1850's. Today it has been cleverly extended to create a hugely versatile family home complete with a self-contained annexe. The magnificent proportions of the sitting room, with its eye-catching carved mantelpiece & log burner fireplace, give an instant indication of the amount of space this home has to offer. Beautifully light and bright, a wall of bi-fold doors opens onto the garden effortlessly extending this room still further. Creating a wonderful amount of space to spend time together as a family or entertain friends, the generous proportions lead into the adjacent dining room. Fully fitted with tasteful Shaker-style cabinets, larder cupboard & full range of integrated appliances, the large kitchen easily accommodates a breakfast table. A duo of French doors opens once again onto the garden, while the heritage patterns of its tiled floor add a subtle splash of colour. A separate study completes the main part of the ground floor. A stylish, self-contained one bedroom annexe with independent access also has a door from the entrance hall. The sense of space continues upstairs where four bedrooms provide ideal family accommodation. Complementing the elegant style that flows throughout this home, the dual aspect master bedroom features a modern en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms are equally well-presented. One stretches out beneath sloping ceilings, exposed beams and Velux windows of the top floor, they each share the sleek family bathroom.
The property is located a short distance from the villages of Burnham, Taplow & Wooburn Green which provide a range of local shops catering for day-to-day needs. A choice of golf courses along with the greenery of Cliveden & Hedsor Park are nearby. A number of well regarded schools in both the private & independent sectors are all within easy reach. Further amenities are available in Maidenhead, Beaconsfield & Slough, each providing a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. The local Burnham Beeches provide pretty countryside walks. The property is also well located for the M4 & M40, providing access to the West Country, the M25, London & its airports. Rail services to London Paddington & Reading are available from Burnham (4.1 miles). The future arrival of Crossrail services will further enhance commuting into the City and Canary Wharf.
Elegantly presented & benefiting from a wonderful amount of seclusion, the large gardens of approaching an acre (approx. 0.94 acres) create a tranquil and idyllic setting, offering something for everyone. They include a large games room, home office & summerhouse. Bordered by statuesque trees, an expansive lawn with a regal water feature has an immense amount of space to relax, while wide gravel pathways meander through the landscaped garden and the quirky outbuildings. Behind secure gates a driveway and carport provides off-road parking for several vehicles.
