    About this property

    • Swinley Court is a handsome modern country house situated in an exclusive private road set in beautiful gardens and grounds approaching three acres.

      Swinley Court is located in a private and secluded setting at the end of Prince Albert Drive, one of Ascot's most sought after private roads. The property is approached via electric gates leading to a long driveway which takes you to the house and garage courtyard beyond. Swinley Court was built by the current owners and has been lovingly maintained and recently refurbished throughout to an exacting standard.

      The front door leads into an entrance vestibule and onto the central hallway which affords access to all of the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is a wonderful space with bespoke bar cabinetry, an open fireplace and two sets of French doors leading on to the south facing terrace.

      The sitting room also has French doors leading to the terrace and a log burner for cosy winter evenings. Across the hall is the study, also with garden access, and a octagonal music room. The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen with views out of a lovely a bay window.

      The kitchen/breakfast room has beautiful units, Gaggenau appliances and French doors leading to the terrace which is ideal of al fresco dining. Beyond the kitchen is the utility room, a wine store, a separate laundry room, a WC and an additional reception room with an en suite shower room and sauna. This space could be also used as a gym, an annexe, a playroom or as a second office.

      The centrepiece of the hallway is a grand wood and glass staircase leading to the first floor. The principal bedroom suite is sumptuous with a south facing walk out balcony, a dressing room and a delightful en suite bathroom with an incredible vaulted ceiling. On this floor there are two further en suite bedrooms, a family bathroom and two double bedrooms which both enjoy access into a games room. On the second floor there is another substantial room which is currently set up as a gym but is an incredibly flexible space.

      The gardens and grounds at Swinley Court are exceptional and measure nearly 3 acres. There is a triple garage, an outdoor swimming pool and a full size tennis court. The swimming pool area is superb, set in a walled garden with extensive entertaining and dining areas, a brick built BBQ, a pool house with a kitchenette, a WC, a shower and a changing room.

      Swinley Court enjoys a wonderful variety of formal lawned gardens to the front and rear of the house but also a more wild wooded area full of mature trees and rhododendrons. The tennis court is set within the latter providing an incredible backdrop to enjoy whilst playing or spectating. Near the tennis court is also a charming summer house ideal for post tennis drinks.

    Swinley Court is one of the most exciting house to come to the market this year. For me it offers the perfect combination between a characterful country house and modern family living. The lifestyle on offer is second to non with a superb outdoor pool, woodland and a tennis court.
