    About this property

    • Orchard Manor is an attractive family home offering a wealth of character and sitting in a secluded, private gated plot of about 1.28 acres. Now requiring some modernisation, it offers huge potential to either completely redevelop or extend/improve, subject to the necessary planning consents.

      The property benefits from planning consents (Ref: 07/01146, granted 20th June 2007) for the construction of a detached 6 bedroom dwelling with bonus accommodation above double garage, with further non material amendments consented on 11th April 2017 (Ref: 16/03321/NMA).

      Other planning applications have been granted historically including for the erection of a detached double garage and store together with a 3.9m high columned arcade around existing tennis court (renewed in 2006).

      The full planning history can be found on the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead website – https://www.rbwm.gov.uk/home/planning.

      The ground floor comprises a spacious entrance hall, a drawing/entertaining room with bar area, feature fireplace and doors opening to the secluded and private rear sun terrace. Further double doors from the bar area lead to the indoor swimming pool (which is in need of complete updating and is not currently used) with a changing room. The ground floor of the main house also includes a dining room, study, fully integrated kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and guest cloakroom.

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

      Outside, the property is approached via electric gates leading to an impressive circular driveway providing parking for several cars. The gardens to the rear are mainly laid to lawn with a terraced area ideal for outside entertaining, mature borders, hedging and trees extending to the boundaries and providing seclusion and privacy.

      In addition to the main house there are several further buildings including a detached studio/office, garage/workshop and a detached lodge in need of updating. To the north of the grounds is a former tennis court.
