About this property

  • Hickmans is a handsome detached house that has been heavily extended and refurbished over the past two years, to create a spacious and beautifully appointed family home. The property has had a keen eye put on the detail both internally and externally, resulting in a home that is consistently stylish yet homely throughout.

    The frontage provides ample parking off street, against a handsome front elevation of brick. Through into the home there is a large welcoming hallway giving good circulation space. A front reception room provides a more formal calming living room, whilst to the rear the bulk of the accommodation to the ground floor is presented with views through this space and over the garden beyond. This spacious room provides the perfect family environment of a kitchen, dining space and family zone with ample room for all-day living. It is a bright and welcoming space with bi-folding doors to the rear giving wide views of the garden and fields beyond.

    The kitchen is luxuriously appointed in a classic Shaker style underneath stone work surfaces. Thoughtfully designed, the kitchen has a good array of storage, fitted appliances and a sizeable central island with breakfast bar. A very useful utility room is also provided on the ground floor, with side access to the garden and a large range of fitted units. Under floor heating runs to the whole of the ground floor of the home.

    The spacious feel of the home continues up the stairs to the first floor, with a large landing leading to the four bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a large double with beautifully fitted wardrobes and a smart en suite shower room. Three further double bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom.

    To the rear of the property is an attractive garden backing directly onto farm land. The views are lovely from the ground and first floor, through a post-and-rail fence at the back of the garden. A side passage leads to the frontage.

    In summary Hickmans provides a superb family home, thoughtfully extended and refurbished by the current owners. The location is excellent being a flat level walk to the station and shops in Cookham, yet retaining a semi-rural village feel with the green views to the rear.
