    About this property

    • Tucked down a quiet lane in the highly coveted village of Cookham Dean is this wonderfully impressive detached family home. Ballards is a modern post-war build which has been substantially improved and updated over the years to create a fantastically spacious and contemporary residence, which has been configured inside and out to be the idea family home. The gardens of nearly an acre have been landscaped to incorporate brilliant leisure facilities, the house offers plenty of space and is presented to a very high standard. A particular highlight is the family room on the lower ground floor, which opens directly onto the pool terrace and has its own kitchenette and adjoining shower room – a great inside/outside benefit particularly during the warmer months. The main living space has two generous reception rooms and a welcoming kitchen, affording space for formal entertaining as well as the demands of busy family life. Premium touches can be found throughout, such as the striking staircase with its full-heigh window and window seat, fitted bookshelves, bifold doors and an open fire.

      A further attraction is the entirely self-contained annexe, which provides potential as an income generator or could be ideal for an au pair, children living at home or grandparents. Equally it could also serve as the perfect home working environment – close to the main house yet sufficiently separate to provide space to concentrate. It is very well appointed to the same standard as the main house and features an open plan living room/kitchen, shower room and bedroom with vaulted ceiling.

      The main residence comprises an entrance hall opening to a triple aspect sitting room, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with utility room, study and WC. On the lower ground floor there is a family room with wet bar/kitchen and adjoining shower room accessed from the terrace, and upstairs there are four good-size double bedrooms (one en suite), a family bathroom and a shower room. Including the annexe there are five double bedrooms in total.

      Ballards sits within a beautifully landscaped plot of just under an acre, behind a sizeable gravel driveway which is accessed from a very quiet and leafy lane. There is plenty of parking to the front, which is enclosed by mature greenery, and the rear garden is well screened from view by the house and the established trees and shrubs. The gardens are paradise for children and adults alike, featuring a heated outdoor swimming pool set within a terrace and a fenced full-size tennis court. The gardens are set over several levels and offer many places to sit and enjoy the outside space, which features a huge variety of shrubs and flowers within dedicated beds and borders and a natural boundary of established trees and hedging which makes the rear garden feel impressively private. There's also a greenhouse and a separate paved terrace behind the annexe.
