    About this property

    • Set within beautiful gardens and backing on to its own meadow and adjoining paddock, Maidens Green House is a substantial family house providing well-planned and flexible living space arranged over two floors. The spacious accommodation is equally suited to both family living and entertaining.

      On the ground floor the key feature is the spacious kitchen/breakfast/garden room providing superb living and entertaining space. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of units, integral appliances and is open plan to the impressive garden room. The garden room has a vaulted ceiling and has been designed to take full advantage of the outlook over the gardens and meadow beyond. The elegant drawing room has a carved marble fireplace and an adjoining dining room provides excellent entertaining space. A sitting room featuring an fireplace with decorative tiles and a separate study. A useful boot room, a utility room and a lobby providing secondary access to the house, all of which can reached from the kitchen/breakfast/garden room.

      On the first floor the principal suite comprises of a bedroom with superb views, an adjoining dressing room fitted with a range of wardrobe cupboards, an en suite bathroom and useful under eaves storage space. Three further bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom on this floor.

      To the front the property a five bar gate opens on to a gravelled driveway that culminates in a large parking area and provides access to the garaging. The house is set back from the road and is screened by various shrubs and trees.

      To the rear the landscaped gardens are undoubtedly a fine feature of the property and have been designed to create an idyllic setting, enhanced by a large meadow to the rear and a paddock to the side. Various areas of interest include a large pond edged with iris plants, decorative rose beds and fruit trees inset into the lawn, clipped box hedging and a brick paved pathway meandering around the boundary of the garden. A large paved sun terrace with an ornamental pond provides excellent ‘al fresco' dining and relaxation space.

      To the rear of the garden, a pedestrian gate opens into the large meadow and it is worth noting that there is also vehicular access to this meadow from Winkfield Lane. Situated at the northern edge of the property is a paddock.

      NB: Planning permission was granted (12/00791/FUL) on 21/11/12 for the installation of rear facing dormers and rear and front facing velux windows to create an additional second floor with two further bedrooms with en suites. The permission has since lapsed but can be viewed on Bracknell Forest Planning Department web site.

    I just love this house and the village location in Maidens Green. It is in good order throughout and offers wonderful views over the picturesque grounds and paddocks. Being west facing it also enjoys sunshine well into the evening from the large terrace. What more could you ask for?!
