WATERSIDE - New Ways lies on a quiet country lane descending towards the River Thames. The modern cedar wood exterior leads to an expansive, secluded, riverside vista as you walk through the entrance gate. At this point, one can either enter the property via the ground floor reception hall or savour the stunning view and take the steps leading to the main reception room on the lower
ground floor. This large open plan space is the heart of the home and includes a dining area, sitting room and state-of-the-art Poggenpohl kitchen with corian surfaces, Siemens cookers and
a built-in wine fridge. Vast sliding glass doors open to the garden and river beyond. Other rooms on this level include the family room and cinema room.
Rising to the ground floor, the hall opens onto four bedrooms, three of which overlook the terrace, gardens and river beyond. The principal guest room has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom/wetroom with a Jacuzzi bath. The master bedroom suite is located in prime position on the first floor and has an adjoining private terrace with a clear, frameless glass balustrade. This is the ideal spot for a morning cup of coffee as it commands exceptional views across the river. It is easy to forget that we are living in the 21st century as there is virtually nothing “man-made” in sight.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
Cookham Dean is set south of the river from Marlow and north of Maidenhead. The location provides convenient access to both towns with many shops, bars and restaurants along with highly renowned restaurants and bars, such as the Michelin-starred Hand and Flowers and Cliveden. There is plenty of scope for walking surrounded by beautiful scenery, either along the river on the Thames Path or in the nearby Chilterns. The village of Cookham is a short drive for day-to-day amenities and the local railway station linking at Maidenhead to Paddington with Crossrail expected in 2020. The A404 connects to both the M4 and M40 making this an excellent location for commuting. Heathrow Airport is fewer than 19 miles away. There is a wide selection of highly-regarded schools in the vicinity including several primary schools in Marlow and within the catchment area for Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School. There are many noteworthy independent schools in the area.
The grounds at New Ways are utterly captivating and inviting. This property lends itself to year-round entertaining. The entrance gate opens onto an enchanting scene which leads the eye through the gardens, via the swimming pool, to the waterside mooring and the fields on the far side of the river where cattle can be seen grazing. A terrace spanning the width of the house is situated directly outside the main reception area. This creates the perfect ambiance for al fresco dining and relaxing with a sense of opening up the house and bringing “the outside” in. The decked area by the mooring offers further scope for entertaining with a fire pit and space for a table and chairs.
The gardens are largely laid to lawn, broken up with a variety of trees such as apple, plum, pear and cherry as well as beech. Both sides of the gardens are bordered by a mixture of laurel and
fir hedging. At night, the property is brought to life again with an array of attractive lights both on the dock and in the trees.
