Garden Cottage is a beautifully presented six bedroom country house set within 1.2 acres of superb landscaped gardens. Built in the 19th century, the house combines attractive period features with luxury modern day living.

The house is approached through electric wrought-iron gates which open onto a sweeping gravelled driveway alongside the lawned front garden. There is ample parking for several vehicles on the driveway with the added benefit of a triple open-fronted oak-framed garage. There is an adjoining workshop with a garden store attached to the garage.

The property is perfect for entertaining, with three large, bright and airy reception rooms downstairs, all with beautiful views over the grounds. The main reception room boasts a large inglenook fireplace and glass doors to the garden. A shower room adjoining one reception room gives scope to utilise this area as a seventh bedroom or ground floor guest suite if desired. The spacious and contemporary kitchen is open plan to a magnificent oak framed orangery which is used as a dining area/ breakfast room and has a spectacular outlook over the pool, terrace and garden. There is also a handy utility room accessed from the kitchen.

The first floor has six bedrooms, encompassing an impressive 18ft master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest suite with private shower room, four further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with many mature trees and wonderful unspoiled views across the countryside beyond. A brick paved terrace spans the width of the property; the ideal space for alfresco dining. The heated swimming pool is surrounded by decking which adjoins the paved terrace. An area of the garden is separated by a hedge and contains a timber framed greenhouse and vegetable garden.

Garden Cottage enjoys a semi-rural setting yet is within easy reach of the amenities of Windsor and Ascot. Sporting and recreational facilities in the area are extensive and include horseracing at Ascot and many options for golf and polo. A large range of shopping and dining opportunities are found locally, including several fine dining establishments.

The property is in an excellent position for commuters, with junction 6 of the M4 and junction 3 of the M3 only 6 miles away. London Paddington is available from Maidenhead station including the new Crossrail service. London Waterloo is accessible from Windsor. Heathrow airport is around 20 minutes drive.

There are many excellent schools in the area including St. George's Windsor Castle and Upton House in Windsor, St. George's, St. Mary's, Heathfield and Papplewick in Ascot, Lambrook in Winkfield Row, Eton College, Wellington College in Crowthorne and Royal Holloway in Egham.
