Hamptons International offers a handsome residence built in a classical style and set in mature gardens (0.8 acre) opposite Burnham Beeches. Built to a bespoke design for the current family, with later additions of a library, swimming pool complex and garaging for seven cars.
Nile House lies behind electric gates in a quiet and discreet location opposite Burnham Beeches. Historically, the site was known as Egypt and The Nile flows through the garden to this day. The main part of the house was built in a classical style in 1975 and the swimming pool and library were added in 1983 and 1992 respectively. A great deal of thought has gone into the architecture and design of this property as demonstrated by the
Corinthian pillars on the façade and in the study and the high quality plasterwork and cornicing throughout.
The impressive reception hall opens onto the principal reception rooms, several of which have French doors through to the gardens. The formal drawing room is triple aspect with sash windows and French doors leading to the terrace as well as to one of several outside dining areas. Access to the dining room can be gained either from the hall or through the drawing room and the kitchen leads through to the breakfast area with an external door to the courtyard. The combination of the excellent flow of the house and well-proportioned rooms is conducive to both family life and entertaining. There is a sense of space and conviviality, created in part by the warmth of materials used in the construction of this property.
A corridor with windows over the courtyard on one side and gardens on the other, runs from the sitting room to the wood-panelled library and to the indoor swimming pool. The library is the perfect retreat for winter relaxation thanks to the large open fire with stone surround. A shower room and small kitchen are located next door. The pool house doubles up as a games room and a wooden floor can be placed over the pool to serve as a dance floor.
A beautiful, hand-carved bespoke staircase leads to the first floor bedrooms and family bathroom. The dual aspect master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a spectacular view across the gardens. There are four further bedrooms, all of which are generous in size and have wonderful views.
With its proximity to Farnham Common, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross, Nile House is well served by shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs, including the Emperor in Farnham Common itself. Sporting needs are catered for by nearby Stoke Park and its excellent golf and tennis clubs. Burnham Beeches is also home to a golf club and a vast network of trails for dog-walking and cycling in 540 acres of woodland. Boating on the Thames is available at Cookham, Marlow and Maidenhead and the racecourses at Windsor and Ascot are easily accessible. There are a number of state and private schools in the area such as Caldicott Preparatory School for boys, Thorpe House School for boys, Gayhurst School for boys and girls, Eton College and Dr Challoner’s Grammar School.
The gardens at Nile House are beautifully landscaped and there is a rich variety of mature shrubs and specimen trees as well as extensive lawn. The pond and The Nile at the front of the house represent another interesting feature of this property and are a source of entertainment as well as “wildlife” and flora. There are several outbuildings, including an office, workshops
and garaging for approximately seven cars. Subject to planning permission, the garage could be converted into self-contained accommodation.
