      The layout and styling accentuates the combination of modern and historic influences perfectly. It includes al entrance hall, which was perhaps the cloisters originally, looking onto the green communal convent square with a breadth of arched windows. Also of note is a huge feature fireplace in the sitting room containing intricate stone carved panelling. A spiral staircase leads to a galleried mezzanine bedroom with an en suite shower room.

      The interior has been fitted with a sleek modern kitchen with integral appliances. The spacious open-plan kitchen design provides ample space for informal dining, with the cloisters offering the perfect venue for more formal dining occasions.

      The Convent dates back to 1853 when the renowned ecclesiastical architect Henry Woodyear designed the chapel and offices that would become the Convent of St. John the Baptist at Clewer. These Gothic buildings have been restored by Hollyhedge (part of Westombe Homes Group) and are surrounded by landscaped grounds to provide a secluded and peaceful environment

The additional shopping facilities, bars and restaurants of the quaint and historic town of Eton may be accessed from Windsor via a footbridge. Windsor is surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside yet is still within easy commuting distance of Central London.
    • For the commuter, road travel is excellent with the M4 (J6) providing access to Heathrow Airport, Central London and the West Country and also linking with the M25, in turn linking with the M3. Rail communications are equally as convenient with Windsor's two stations, Windsor and Eton Central and Windsor and Eton Riverside, offering services to London Waterloo and London Paddington (via Slough) respectively. Crossrail, the new high-speed rail service is in its infancy providing a much faster service from Windsor to either Heathrow in the West or the City & Canary Wharf in the East.
