About this property

  • This handsome and substantial detached family home was built in the 1920s and has a sought-after location on the favourable western edge of Bourne End, with fast access to the A404(M) and Marlow. The detached property is generously sized throughout, offering more than 3300 sq ft of accommodation and a wealth of desirable features such as original wood flooring, a contemporary kitchen and beautifully presented interiors. The house has been updated by the vendor in recent years to include sympathetic extensions to the original layout, a new kitchen and upgraded bathrooms, as well as cosmetic updates throughout.

    The well-proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors and has ample space for entertaining and the daily demands of family life. On the ground floor, an entrance hall with cloakroom/w.c. provides a welcoming first impression and leads to the generous L-shaped sitting room and adjoining family/TV room, an open plan kitchen/breakfast room and a study. From the kitchen there is a door to the utility room and a ground floor shower room/w.c. to service the outdoor swimming pool. There is also a staircase rising to the additional accommodation above the garage – two rooms ideal for older children or perhaps a home working space. This is separate to the first-floor accommodation which has its own staircase to a long and spacious landing, which accesses a principal bedroom with en suite shower room; a further double bedroom with balcony and en suite shower room; a family bathroom and three additional good-size bedrooms. In total are five double bedrooms.

    Outside
    The property is approached over a good-size gravel driveway with plenty of off-street parking and access to an integrated double garage. The front of the house is screened from the road by mature trees while the rear is well enclosed by well-established shrubs. There is a good-size paved patio and a heated outdoor pool set within a decking terrace. Within the rear garden there is a fabulous garden relaxation room, a lovely timber-framed building featuring space for a hot tub (available by separate negotiation) and a sauna. The rear of the house has a south-westerly aspect to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sunlight.
