This charming character lodge house, located on a prime semi-rural road in South Buckinghamshire, boasts a tranquil feel and once served as the gatehouse and gardener’s lodge for Malvern House, its rear neighbour, with which it partially shares a driveway.
The handsome 1930s property is beautifully presented and has been the subject of much improvement and extension to provide well-planned family accommodation over two floors. The property retains many character features, from timber framed detailing to the elevations to lead light windows and an authentic cast iron fireplace.
The ground floor comprises a welcoming hallway leading to a sitting room with bay window and adjoining study. Additionally there is a good size double aspect kitchen/dining room with Amtico flooring, granite worktops and breakfast bar, space for a dining table and a number of integrated appliances. A playroom/family room and a cloakroom with w/c completes the ground floor accomodation.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with bay window and windowseat, a wall of fitted wardrobes and its own en-suite bathroom with contemporary roll top bath and Aqualisa walk-in shower. Useful storage can be found within the eaves and roof space. The two further bedrooms have fitted storage and share a family bathroom.
The property stands behind electric gates opposite Burnham Beeches Golf Club and a short distance from Burnham village, which provides a range of shops catering for day-to-day needs, including cafes and a Tesco Express. Further amenities are available in Taplow and Maidenhead, the latter providing a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. There is an excellent range of schools locally, with a number of schools in both the private and independent sectors within easy reach.
Footpaths are available locally at Burnham Beeches and Snowball Farm Equestrian Centre is less than a mile away. The famous Cliveden House, set within expansive National Trust grounds, is 3.7 miles away. The property is also well located for the M4 providing access to the West Country, the M40, the M25, London and its airports. Rail services to London Paddington and Reading are available from Burnham (1.7 miles). The future arrival of Crossrail services will further enhance commuting into the City.
The lodge is situated within lovely secluded gardens and is accessed via a gravel driveway leading to a parking area in front of the house, where there is also a block-paved patio and flowerbeds. The rear garden is completely private, surrounded by high hedging and mature borders, with a mostly level lawn leading to a garden shed at the rear.
