  • Bedrooms: 5
A light, spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, family home with detached garage & large driveway, set on the border of open Cookham farmland with beautiful far-reaching views. Charming, private garden in this unique setting, yet close to nearby shops & schools.

A sweeping driveway and pretty front garden lead to a solid oak front door along a curved brick pathway. The entrance opens into a naturally flowing groundfloor space. Careful thought has been given to the remodelling of the home which has been designed to maximise the natural light which floods the dual aspect sitting/dining room from East to West. The spacious country-style kitchen is equipped with a wealth of storage and workspace, and opens into a good sized utility room and then through to the downstairs cloakroom. Completing the ground floor, with access from both the kitchen and the front hall, is a very versatile room, suited perhaps to either a quiet study or a further family room.

The sense of light and space continues upstairs where all five, generously sized bedrooms enjoy stunning extensive views of the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom is fitted with ample storage space and has a beautifully designed ensuite bathroom. The stylish family bathroom, with a bath and combined shower area, features a bespoke oak, sink cabinet surround.

The south-facing house and garage roof hold a very discreetly positioned 3.6 kw solar power system which generates an income of approximately £650 per year. This, coupled with the excellent "B" scoring on the Energy Performance Certificate make for a highly economical home to run, reaping considerable savings over time.

The property is situated on the northern periphery of Maidenhead, just within the boundary of the parish of Cookham, which boasts a wealth of country pubs. Cookham High Street is approximately a mile and a half away, as is the high street of Maidenhead with its range of shopping and recreational activities, and its mainline railway station to Paddington. The added benefits from the expansion of "Crossrail" are expected to be realized by mid-2022. The attractions of boating/sailing and riverside walks along the Thames can be found at Cookham, Bourne End, and the nearby popular riverside town of Marlow. From here there are beautiful walks to be found in the Chiltern Hills less than six miles away.

The property also lies within two miles of the A404M which links the M4 at junction 8/9 and the M40 at junction 4(Handy Cross)
