A superbly presented house with charm and character, situated in an enviable position in the heart of Cookham Dean.
The hand crafted Arts and Crafts style brickwork of the front porch provides a wonderful first impression for this family home. It connects beautifully with the spacious entrance hall within which is laid with deep stained herringbone design, parquet wood flooring which runs throughout all receptions rooms on the ground floor.

There is also a Britannia range cooker with extractor above.
To the rear of the house is a beautifully appointed and spacious (6.96m x 5.53m) drawing room where the open fireplace with classic marble surround makes a for wonderful focal point. French doors lead directly to a large paved patio area, ideal for al fresco dining and views of the garden. Steps lead from this room to a snug/library with rich stained glass windows to the side aspect fitted with a range of Mark Wilkinson furniture including beautifully finished bookshelves, perfect for relaxing and enjoying one's own space with a good book. The surround hall leads to a good sized study to the front of the house and on from there, a guest cloak room and access to the integrated garage and utility room.
