About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Prime

As the gates open to reveal Harwin, one has the impression of walking onto the set of a futuristic film. It is a highly impressive and unique property, designed by Richard Rowsell. The materials and construction are of the highest standard with a perfectionist’s eye for attention to detail. Harwin is a 21st century work of art incorporating all that is needed to accommodate the practicalities of everyday life.

The principal reception rooms are west-facing and overlook the terracing, gardens and rolling countryside as far as the eye can see. Most of the rooms are bathed in light, thanks to the clever

use of space, floor-to-ceiling windows and the unusual curved design of the house. The reception hall leads in one direction to the drawing room with a fireplace and bi-fold doors to a balcony, and

in the other direction to the kitchen/breakfast room (with ceramic floors and a granite-topped island), family room and utility room.

A cantilevered walnut staircase rises to the first floor and the state-of-the-art “observatory” galleried landing with a glass ceiling and windows on both sides. The master bedroom suite

has a balcony, dressing room and spacious bathroom. The other two bedroom suites on the first floor span the depth of the house, making the most of far-reaching views towards the west. Many of the interior walls are curved with a polished

plaster finish creating a highly attractive and unusual effect. The bathroom floors are Italian slate.

The lower ground floor is dedicated to entertainment and full of surprises with a swimming pool worthy of the most luxurious

spa resort. It is equipped with a curved “snail shell” shower and changing room. The pool and gym both have doors opening onto the upper level of terracing. The cinema has two rows of

leather reclining chairs and all the trappings of a genuine movie theatre with access to a small kitchen and wine cellar concealed behind one of the walls of the hall.

Within easy reach of the village centre, shops and railway station, the property is set in a private gated lane overlooking Bourne End and the Thames Valley. Bourne End station is linked, via Maidenhead, to London Paddington or via Beaconsfield to Marylebone. The nearby A404 gives easy access to the M4, M40 and the full motorway network with London Heathrow about 19 miles distant. Bourne End is within Buckinghamshire’s catchment area for the excellent grammar school system and the property has walking access to a selection of primary schools and country walks.

Harwin is set in a discreet location behind electric gates and, in addition to the triple garage, there is ample parking space for several cars. The house sits in a fabulous spot and the gardens and terracing at the rear of the house are particularly

attractive, providing plenty of scope for al fresco dining against a background of breath-taking scenery. An outdoor loggia, complete with a barbecue and kitchen facilities, adds to the

luxurious specification of this property. Much of the landscaped garden and attractive gabion-walled terracing is laid to lawn and there is a wide selection of plants including palm trees and a New Zealand petrified tree.
