A characterful family home of over 5000 sqft, situated within a generous and leafy plot of just over an acre adjoining Littlewick Green’s historic parish church.
This extremely spacious period property has been subject to a number of improvements over the years, including two extensions, joining the garage to the main house and installing a swimming pool in the rear garden. With its flexible layout and wealth of reception rooms, the generously proportioned cottage has all the hallmarks of an excellent family home, with scope for further development and modernisation if desired. Internally, the property is well presented and benefits from a number of character features such as beamed ceilings and brick fireplaces, though would benefit from some updates to the interior décor.
On the ground floor, the home is entered via an inviting entrance hall which leads to the principle accommodation, comprising a formal dining room, study, two large reception rooms, an eat-in kitchen, utility room and two cloakrooms. Perhaps the highlight of the property is the additional bar, which is designed like a traditional country pub.
The first-floor accommodation is equally generous and comprises six bedrooms (four en-suite), a family bathroom and 32ft playroom.
Located a few miles west of Maidenhead, the property is situated just off the convenient Bath Road, close to the attractive villages of Littlewick Green, Woolley Green and Burchett’s Green, each with their respective pubs and walking routes; the latter also has a good primary school.

St. John’s Cottage is set within delightful grounds and is accessed via a sweeping carriage driveway with space for a number of vehicles. There are two separate double garages at either end of the house, both with electric doors, with further storage within a detached outbuilding. The gardens wrap around the property and are comprised mostly of lawned areas, secluded by a variety of mature trees and hedges.
