About this property

  • A fabulous Georgian detached country home, Englefield dates back to the late 1700s and offers elegant and beautifully proportioned accommodation over three floors. The property is tucked away at the far end of a desirable private road, offering the perfect marriage of country living and access to amenities being just over half a mile from the station at Cookham and a variety of shops and services. The house has been well maintained and has many well-preserved period features. The vendors have made several improvements to the home over the years while respecting the heritage of the building, including new roof and chimneys, modernised kitchen, the installation of a swimming pool and an upgraded central heating system.

    The accommodation is substantial, extending to over 3500 sq ft with cellars on the lower ground floor providing useful storage. On the ground floor, an entrance hall opens to three reception rooms, a conservatory, kitchen/living space with pantry, a separate kitchen with breakfast area and a utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom.

    Englefield is situated on a private road within half a mile of the station. Access is via a secure gated entrance which opens to generously proportioned grounds of close to an acre, including ample driveway parking, a flagstone courtyard for entertaining, an expansive lawn with rose gardens and shrubs, a variety of mature specimen trees and a further garden area with greenhouse and pergola. To the front there are attractive climbers on the red brick elevations. The gardens also benefit from pedestrian access to Terry's Lane.

I love this hidden gem - private yet less than a quarter-mile from the train station and shops.
