Property description

A Classic Edwardian property originally built in 1902 that was sympathetically extended in 2004/5 enhancing the original footprint of this period home situated in the sought-after village of Waltham St Lawrence.

The property exhibits typical Edwardian features from this rich period in history including high Ceilings, well-proportioned rooms, double glazed sash windows, period fireplaces and set back from the road with privacy hedges.

The property is situated within the heart of the pretty village of Waltham St. Lawrence which is set within beautiful countryside and boasts the historic St Lawrence church dating back to the 7th Century.

This home is within walking distance of the Ofsted rated Outstanding Waltham St Lawrence Primary School and the public house ‘The Bell Inn’ . A classic half- timbered 15th Century pub bequeathed to the village in 1608 by Sir Ralph Newbury.

More extensive amenities are available in nearby Twyford village and the towns of Maidenhead, Reading, Henley and Windsor.

This includes a mainline railway station serving London in Twyford on the new Elizabeth line with direct access to Paddington, Bond Street and Canary Wharf. The M4 (Junction 8/9) provides access to Heathrow, the West Country, Central London and the M25.

A wide range of sporting and recreational activities in the area include horse racing at Windsor and Ascot; golf at the nearby Castle Royal, boating at Dorney lake and along the river Thames and flying at White Waltham. There are a number of highly respected schools and colleges in the region including Reading Bluecoats in Sonning, Brigidine and St. George's in Windsor, Papplewick in Ascot, Queen Anne's School for girls in Caversham, Eton College and Wellington College.

The larger village of Twyford is 3 miles away and has a Waitrose supermarket. The village itself boasts an active cricket club and village family fete.

Upon arriving at the property, the front gate and the driveway gates are Acoya wood with oak posts so you have a choice of entrances.

The front gate leads passed a scented rose and clematis arch to the front door of this double bay fronted home. This opens into a hallway where the journey begins.

However, the majority of visitors use the equally impressive double gates into the large, gravelled parking area and use the side door that encompasses an enclosed Vestibule.

The Vestibule leads into a sleek modern Kitchen that is bespoke for this exceptional home. The cashmere colour kitchen units are exquisite and include a large island with split level seating. The built-in double oven, the dishwasher and the hob are all good quality Neff appliances.

Using the kitchen sink is an absolute treat as it offers views over the cottage garden and countryside beyond.

A high-quality flagstone floor complements the units and delightful décor.

Double glazed sash windows feature throughout the property ensuring the original character is maintained but with the advantage of heating efficiency.

Leading from the Kitchen you will find a larger than average Utility Room currently fitted with a John Lewis washing machine and tumble dryer and a fresh downstairs cloakroom. The stable door that leads to the side of the property is ideal for a summers day to create a nice breeze and gaze at the fields beyond.

Double glazed solid wood doors also lead off the kitchen into a spacious Dining Room with seating for ten guests or more. The room is light and airy with a large bay window, a fireplace and solid wood floor. This is an ideal space for formal dining with a built-in traditional dresser unit to store your best dinner service.

A further door from the kitchen leads into the formal Living Room which is an absolute delight. The bay window allows light to flood in and fill the room with warmth. A large room big enough for a grand piano, features an Edwardian fireplace with a grate for a real fire to keep the room cosy in the winter months.

A built in display cabinet adorns the room and the real wood flooring is in keeping with the high quality that this house offers. The current décor tones of the room finish off what is truly a decadent space.

The house then opens up into a second double aspect reception room which has glazed double doors opening out onto a private patio area ideal for sipping a drink while watching the sun rise and set over the fields beyond.

The room has a large wood burning stove in a small inglenook and would be ideal as a second Sitting Room/Play Room/Hobby Room offering a family versatile accommodation for modern living.

The solid wood staircase leads up from the dining room to the second floor accommodation. Solid wood doors open up into Five Double Bedrooms, Two with Ensuites and a Family Bathroom.

The principal Bedroom assumes a position on the wing of the property with dual aspect windows. The front window can be left ajar and the scent from the roses below will waft into the room. The rear aspect window looks out over the garden and open countryside. An early morning treat of deer, hares and other wildlife can be seen from the dressing area of this room.

One wall is dedicated to built in solid wood wardrobes and the master suite is completed by a contemporary ensuite with double size shower and a glossy vanity sink unit.

Bedroom Two is equally as impressive with a modern ensuite and built in wardrobes, The views match those of the rest of the house ensuring a peaceful sleep.

Three further Double Bedrooms, two of which include an Edwardian cast iron feature fireplace, further built in wardrobes and a variety of aspects, all are flooded with light from the double-glazed sash windows.

The Family Bathroom is tastefully decorated in hues of grey and is fully tiled offering a cool serene area to enjoy. There is an impressive shower over the bath and sleek vanity sink unit.

Stepping outside into the grounds is a treat for all the senses, the large formal lawns are bordered by spectacular cottage garden displays of Peonies, Roses, Geraniums and much more. Views beyond are onto the meadow and a small brook runs alongside the boundary.

The brook was originally called Sill Stream but today is known as The Twyford Brook.  What could be better than sitting in this wonderful garden listening to the birds and the babbling brook.

At the end of the garden is a composting area deliberately designed so that no visits to dispose of garden waste are ever required and to the side of the property is a very well-established fruit and herb growing area.

Family entertaining would not be complete without a swimming pool which can be found secluded to the left of the vestibule door. A wonderful oval shaped pool with surrounding patio.

The seating area is nicely designed with a backdrop of scented roses, a sun trap for enjoying all this garden has to offer.

A 400 sqft detached double garage with electric doors, side access, a log store and a sit on lawn mower are all offered with this property.

This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a rural idyll with all the charm of the Edwardian Era sympathetically enhanced for the modern family lifestyle.
