An impressive modern country house with wonderful views over the Thames Valley towards the river Thames. Rural in feel yet surprisingly close to the popular Chiltern town of Marlow.
Highgrounds was completed in 2011 and is a fine modern country house built and designed to the highest standard. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and has been meticulously planned to create a practical but relaxing living space with a great sense of flow throughout.
Highgrounds offers a wonderful living space with a number of good-sized reception rooms on both the ground floor and lower ground floor level, including the magnificent central sitting room, with an impressive vaulted ceiling, bi-fold doors to the terrace and beautiful views across the valley. There is easy access to each floor via a lift and has been designed to suit a variety of potential purchasers.
The house is a great home for entertaining, entered via a porch into the reception hall. The ground floor includes the open plan living kitchen with a central island and electric Aga, the impressive principal bedroom suite with a dressing area and en suite bathroom along with two further guest suites. On the first floor is a sitting room with a glass floor, a prep kitchen and three further bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and ample storage space.
There is a large family/cinema room in the lower ground floor as well as a catering kitchen, wine cellar, two store rooms and a plant room. The spacious garage can also be accessed via the basement.
Highgrounds is approached via a drive through electric timber gates, the drive rises up to the side of the house with a spur leading down to the extensive garaging. There is beautiful, manicured box topiary circling the house and terracing to enjoy the garden and views.
The home sits in formal gardens of about an acre, surrounded to the sides and rear by paddocks. In total there is about 5.5 acres of grounds (with more available if needed by separate negotiation).

I particularly love the setting - rural in outlook yet so convenient for the town and river.Hugh MaconochieProperty agent
