Grade II listed country house full of character and charm with equestrian facilities now with planning permission.
A very rare opportunity to acquire a 15th Century Grade II listed country home in the pretty village of Winkfield set within a walled garden with a heated swimming pool and an annexe. There is planning permission granted for erection of a one and half-storey rear extension to replace the existing, lowered terrace as well as internal alteration to existing stable annexe to continue as ancillary habitable living accommodation and widening of front vehicle entrance gate by repositioning of granite bollards. The accommodation, which has central heating throughout, consists of a reception hall, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen, cloakroom, main bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms with vaulted beamed ceilings and a family bathroom. Of particular note are the large inglenook fireplace, stone floors to the ground floor, and a wealth of exposed wall and ceiling beams, all fastidiously maintained throughout. In addition to the main house, there is a separate annexe converted from some of the stables, which provides delightful and spacious accommodation overlooking the gardens. The manicured gardens compliment this extraordinary period family home and frame the property with box hedging, stone pathways, a pond surrounded by rose bushes and mature flowering shrubs, and a fruit orchard, all interlaced with lawned areas. There are seven stables and an approximately 2.5-acre paddock to the rear of the property, benefiting from its own private access to the road.
Winkfield is a charming rural village 5.9 miles to Windsor and 4.4 miles of the North of Ascot. Windsor offers regular train services to Paddington and Waterloo and Ascot goes directly to Waterloo. Shopping facilities are excellent with a variety of supermarkets, high street fashion boutiques and malls. Junctions 6 and 8 of the M4 are about 7 miles away and provide good access to central London, the West Country and Heathrow, which is about 14 miles away. Exceptional schools in the area include St. Mary's School, Heathfield, St. George's, Eton College, Wellington College, Lambrook Prep School, Hall Grove, Papplewick, The ACS International and TASIS. Recreational facilities across the area include horse racing at Ascot and polo at The Guards Club, health and tennis clubs, leisure centres, cinemas, theatres and even a dry ski slope. With both the River Thames and Windsor Great Park not far way there are miles of beautiful country walks as well.
