A stunning thatched period home which has been thoughtfully extended and refurbished to provide luxurious contemporary family accommodation, whilst retaining its original charm and character. The property sits within a generous plot enjoying a secluded position in the heart of Cookham Dean. There are many stand out features of the home, undoubtedly one of these being the superb kitchen/breakfast room, which given it's generous proportions, enjoys a real 'hub of the home' feel with stunning views down the length of the garden via bifolding doors. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of cream eye and base level units and contrasting granite work surfaces, including a central island. Integrated appliances include a Miele fridge-freezer, two ovens, coffee machine and microwave. A 'wood burning style' gas stove is an attractive feature and helps creates a cosy ambiance. There are three receptions areas in all, with the main living room enjoying a front to back dual aspect with doors to the garden and a feature fireplace. The remaining two are versatile spaces but are currently enjoyed as a family room and study. Completing the floor is a practical utility room and a very nicely fitted cloakroom with shower. To the first floor are four bedrooms, including the impressive master with built in wardrobes and eaves storage. There are two beautifully fitted bathroom suites to service these rooms, with the main one including a free standing bath and separate shower.
Cookham Dean is set south of the river from Marlow and north of Maidenhead. The location provides convenient access to either town with many shops, bars and restaurants. The village of Cookham is a short drive for day to day amenities and local railway station linking at Maidenhead to Paddington. The A404 connects to both the M4 & M40 making this an excellent location for commuting. Heathrow Airport is less than 19 miles away. Primary schooling is in the village with an excellent range of senior schools to choose from in nearby towns. Of note Maidenhead station, which already offers fast trains to Paddington in under half an hour, will form part of the Crossrail project (2018/19) and will then offer direct services into the heart of the Capital, including Canary Wharf in 55 minutes.
The grounds are a real strength of the home and are beautifully mature with a wide selection of shrubs and specimen trees. A stone terrace, which skirts the home, offers space for outside dining and entertaining and this leads down to a well kept lawn. To the rear of the garden is a large attractive summerhouse that incorporates a kitchenette, cloakroom and terrace with built in gas barbeque, set beside a garden pond. The double garage has been tastefully constructed with an oak framed design and tiled roof, twin doors and resin floor. This is in addition to ample driveway parking.
