A fabulous and beautifully presented one-bedroom cottage occupying a sought-after setting in the picturesque village of Holyport, overlooking the delightful village green with its two excellent pubs.
The Grade II-listed property is situated within an attractive terrace of 12 similar cottages that dates back to the 1800s and has been extensively renovated by the owner to create a well-presented home with many period features retained and incorporated into the attractive design. The characterful home has been updated in a traditional style in keeping with the age of the property, with notable features including original cast iron radiators, a 1940s cast iron cistern in the bathroom, a period fireplace with original slate hearth and reclaimed wooden flooring from a hotel ballroom in the dining room.
On the ground floor, the property opens onto the sitting room, which leads to a dining room, study area and kitchen. The latter is fitted with a good mix of bespoke wall and base units, a microwave oven/grill and washing machine, with space for freestanding appliances. On the first floor there is a good size double bedroom with extensive built in wardrobes and a bathroom with rolltop bath and shower over.
Holyport village is located south of Bray and Maidenhead town centre and has a number of local shops including a butcher, newsagent, grocers and chemist, as well as a selection of well-regarded pubs and the village cafe. Sporting and leisure facilities in the area include golf clubs at The Berkshire and Swinley Forest, horse racing at Ascot and Windsor and rowing at Dorney Lake.
Road links are very accessible with junction 8 of the M4 motorway a short drive providing access to the M25, central London, Heathrow Airport and the West Country. Rail access to London Paddington is available via Maidenhead (2.1 miles); the future arrival of Crossrail will futher enhance commuting to London’s West End, the City and Canary Wharf.
The property is set back from the private no-through road behind a pretty front garden with a wooden picket fence separating it from the communal parking area; there is an additional parking space to the rear where the property also benefits from a single detached garage with electric door. The rear courtyard is the perfect low-maintenance cottage garden, enclosed by wooden panel fencing and stocked with a number of mature plants and climbers. The south east aspect makes it the perfect spot for breakfasts alfresco.
