About this property

  • Millrun is a stunning riverside residence, set on the exclusive White Lilies Island, comprised of five luxury waterside homes. Having been architecturally designed to the highest standard by the current client in 1970, the building orientation cleverly ensures maximum natural light throughout, with the added benefit of panoramic views over the picturesque millstream, Mill House beyond and exceptionally attractive part of the Thames.

    This remarkable home offers both potential to replace the existing dwelling or extend (STPP). The property was originally designed as a two stage residence with further potential to build into the central courtyard (STTP) creating an impressive entrance and extending the house (stage two). Only the first stage is complete and our client has recently submitted a Pre-Application 17/90467 to the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead regarding stage two. The Planning Officer's Report is available on request for inspection as well as a summary of his conclusions.

    The ground floor features a welcoming reception hall with tiled floor and bespoke spiral staircase. Drawing room with working exposed brick fireplace, bar and access to the terrace. Dining room with double doors opening into the drawing room and access to the terrace. Family room with double aspect views, built-in shelving and storage. Study with built-in desk and shelving with views to the front of the property. Kitchen with a range of fitted cupboards, integrated appliances, double ceramic sink and tiled floor. Utility room with laundry plumbing and double aspect views and cloakroom.

    On the first floor, there is an upper landing with built-in storage cupboards. A master bedroom with built-in wardrobe, display shelving, en suite shower room and balcony access with beautiful views to the millstream. Double bedroom 2 with built-in wardrobe and balcony access. Bedroom 3 & 4 have double aspect views and balcony access. Walk-in wardrobe with built-in storage and skylight and family bathroom with twin vanity sinks.

    Outside
    Double garage with internal flower bed currently planted with a thriving grape vine. Studio/store room with both garden and garage access.

    There area two deep water moorings on the River Thames and two shallow water moorings on the millstream.

    To the front of the property electric gates open onto a paved driveway leading to the double garage and parking for a number of cars. Steps flanked by mature raised beds lead you up to the front door.

    The grounds of Mill Run are a particular feature with 200ft of river front gardens facing the Thames and 300ft facing the millstream making this a truly exceptional waterfront property with the ability to moor boats on both river frontages. The gardens are principally laid to lawn with mature trees providing interest and shade. The sheltered circular garden with central magnolia tree adjoins the house and is a perfect for outdoor entertaining. A further lower terrace has a built in BBQ providing another area for 'al fresco' entertaining. Millrun is built on an elevated garden which is above the highest recorded flood level in 1947. It is further protected by the new Jubilee alleviation river.
