    About this property

    • Situated in a fabulous semi-rural position just moments from Bisham Woods, with its many walking trails, is this handsome detached family home. The property has been subject to a number of improvements over the years and is well presented internally in a thoughtful and characterful style that provides a homely feel, with a traditional country-style décor scheme. The highlight of the property is certainly its charming and well-established gardens which are private with no overlooking neighbours with hidden, outdoor heated swimming pool. The feeling is distinctly rural, with green countryside views all around, and yet the house is just over 2 miles from Marlow High Street.

      The accommodation amounts to over 3300 sq ft and is generously proportioned throughout. The large entrance hall with w.c opens to a triple-aspect sitting room, adjoining dining room, and conservatory with two sets of French doors opening to the rear garden. The fully fitted kitchen is complete with a wealth of storage, large pantry and useful adjacent utility room with internal access to the garage. A spacious reception room completes the ground floor. On the first floor is the principal bedroom benefitting from an en suite bathroom, and fitted wardrobes and dressing room. A further very large room, currently used as an artist's studio, has a balcony with delightful far-reaching, countryside views to the South. There are two further doubles and one additional bedroom, all with built-in storage and a family bathroom.

      Summerhayes is set back on a quiet residential lane with a private gated driveway to the front providing parking for several vehicles with access to an integral double garage. The majority of the space is situated to the rear, where there is a very charming wrap-around garden benefitting from a favourable southerly aspect with a generous sloping lawn with well-stocked vibrant borders, mature hedges and beautiful far reaching views. There are several seating areas for outdoor dining including a patio and spacious decking area with hidden, outdoor heated swimming pool and wooden pergola, perfect for entertaining in the summer months.
