    About this property

    • Hunters Moon is a very charming family home situated in a convenient setting just one mile from Cookham Rise rail station and a short distance from Marlow's vibrant High Street. The house is of an excellent size offering more than 4000 sq ft of space, with generously proportioned rooms making it well suited for entertaining at home. Originally constructed in the 1930s in a traditional style with the clever use of natural materials such as exposed beams, the interiors are decorated in an attractive ‘country farmhouse' style which wonderfully complements the setting of the property.

      The ground floor accommodation is accessed off an impressive vaulted entrance hall with W.C and cloakroom leading through to a formal lounge with feature fireplace. A formal dining room and an adjoining sun room lead in turn through to the handsome bespoke farmhouse kitchen, complete with a wealth of storage and useful adjacent pantry and utility room. Through to later additions, there is a large family/games room (with useful mezzanine space above), a study, snug and a further room which might serve as a guest/fifth double bedroom. Previously there was a shower room to the ground floor in this area too, which if reinstated would be a lovely guest area, or possible self-contained annexe if desired.

      On the first floor is the principal bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and cloakroom.

      The home is privately situated in a prime location with an ample-sized driveway to the front providing parking for a number of vehicles with access to a detached garage. The charming and well-established gardens which are private with no overlooking neighbours, are ideally positioned to capture the sun throughout the day and amount to about 1.25 acres. The grounds comprise rolling lawns spanning the rear and sides of the house, interspersed with a variety of mature trees and established shrubs. A spacious terrace provides the ideal setting for outdoor dining whilst the swimming pool is nestled away and ideal for entertaining in the warmer months. There is also a separate lawned area, previously a lawn tennis court.
