    About this property

    • Benefitting from a tranquil position to the west of Marlow, 1 Beechwood Drive feels rural yet is about one mile from the thriving town centre of this highly sought-after market town. The property enjoys a wonderfully leafy setting surrounded by mature woodland, with uninterrupted views to the rear over green and pleasant countryside. The mature gardens and close proximity to Marlow's excellent network of footpaths makes the home perfect for those with dogs or energetic children, and there's plenty of space in the garden for installing climbing furniture or building dens. The house itself was built circa 2008 as part of a small, executive development of similar detached homes, and offers more than 6000 sq ft of space over four floors. It has been designed to function equally well as a family home as a place to entertain, and the choice of expansive reception rooms as well as the vast open plan fully fitted Smallbone kitchen and dining room makes the layout exceptionally versatile. The décor is beautifully appointed to a high specification, and there are many premium additions such as Cat5 cabling throughout, smart lighting, superfast fibre broadband connection, integrated speaker systems in the kitchen, lounge and basement room, underfloor heating across the basement, ground and first floors; bifold doors opening to the gardens to extend the living spaces in the warmer months; balconies to the principal bedroom and the first floor landing; and a security system including an alarm and CCTV. The elegant and well-presented interiors are a blank canvas for personalisation, decorated in a palette of neutrals enhanced by oak details. The kitchen is a particular highlight, with its granite work surfaces, attractive cabinetry and array of premium Miele and Samsung appliances.

      The layout comprises a sitting room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast/family room accessed from a central hallway with cloakroom/WC. There is an internal lobby leading to a study, utility and WC which could provide annexe potential if desired. On the lower ground floor there is a cinema room and games room. The bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, including a principal bedroom with en suite and dressing room, three further en suite bedrooms and two doubles sharing a family bath/shower room.

      1 Beechwood Drive is situated on a quiet, secluded cul de sac, with the manicured greens of Harleyford Golf Club on one side and open countryside to the rear. The local area has excellent access to a network of footpaths leading to Marlow Common. There's great kerb appeal provided by an attractively landscaped front garden planted with shrubs and hedges, with ample parking available on a block-paved driveway which leads up to an attached double garage. The rear garden is an excellent size and has well established trees on either side providing a high degree of privacy, with an open aspect to the rear so as not to obstruct the idyllic views of the open countryside beyond. A sheltered terrace is the perfect spot for entertaining outside in the warmer months, and there's a choice of additional spaces to sit and enjoy the views.

    A marvelous family home, deceptively spacious with an impressive lower ground floor. I love the layout.
