A rare opportunity to acquire a simply charming two-bedroom end of terrace cottage occupying a sought-after setting with rural views to the front and rear, within the desirable village of Fifield.
Situated on a peaceful country lane, the cottage is the perfect escape with a lovely garden and characterful interiors. Dating back to 1798, the cottage offers a wealth of period charms including wooden floors, a cast iron fireplace and original wooden doors. These features have been sympathetically incorporated into a modernisation of the property, which has added a glazed extension to the rear, creating a delightful dining area with views of the garden. The property is very well presented in a traditional style, which adds to the warm and cosy feel.
The property briefly comprises a sitting room with stable style front door, modern bathroom and country-style kitchen/diner filled with natural light. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both of a good size with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
The charming village of Fifield is one of Berkshire’s prettiest, benefitting from a village pub, The Fifield Inn. There are a number of very well regarded local schools in both the state and private sector.
Despite its rural feel, the village has convenient road access to the M4, which links to the M25 and A404(M) in addition to the wider motorway network. A village bus service also travels between Maidenhead and Windsor. Rail access is equally accessible with direct services from Maidenhead to London Paddington and Reading station, plus London Waterloo services from Windsor; the future arrival of Crossrail will further enhance commuting with direct services to London’s West End, the City and Canary Wharf.
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. Outstanding countryside on the doorstep includes plentiful footpaths and bridleways ideal for dog walkers.
The vendor is a renowned garden designer and as such has landscaped the rear garden in a design befitting the description ‘sanctuary’, creating an idyllic space to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Keen gardeners will appreciate the vegetable patches and mature planting, and to the rear there is a charming view over private fields with space to sit and relax. A covered outside dining area provides a delightful space to entertain, and in addition there is a separate fully insulated office space with heating, running water and electricity. To the front of the house there is a paved driveway with private parking for one car. An accessway to the side leads to the rear garden.
