About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning 6 bedroom barn conversion just outside the village of Taplow, which has been renovated throughout to an exceptional standard. A superb family home, with flexible and well proportioned accommodation, also features a separate self-contained annexe and a heated swimming pool.

This substantial detached property is believed to date back to the 14th century when it was originally constructed as Burnham Abbey, and has been Grade II listed as a result of its significant historical interest. A number of period features have been beautifully preserved, including vaulted ceilings, grand fireplaces and exposed beams, which are complemented by contemporary décor.

The property is entered via a very impressive entrance hall with a fireplace and oak and glass staircase, which leads to an expansive open plan living area. Here the space has been zoned for entertaining, with a striking kitchen featuring a central island and a variety of premium appliances, a dining area and a sitting area with doors opening to the garden. Accommodation continues with a laundry room, plant room and an annexe kitchen with separate entrance.

The six bedrooms are arranged across the ground and first floors, with two en suite bedrooms on the ground floor in addition to a separate cloakroom. The master bedroom is situated on the upper floor and features a large dressing room and beautiful en suite bathroom. The three additional bedrooms are accessed from the galleried mezzanine landing and share a family bathroom, with the largest bedroom also having its own staircase and a bathroom. All of the bedrooms are uniquely presented with character features, and some benefit from open fireplaces.

The barn is situated close to the Jubilee River and is within easy reach of Eton, Maidenhead, Windsor and Bray, each with their respective shops and restaurants; Bray is particularly notable for its Michelin-starred establishments, such as Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck. Local villages Taplow and Burnham both offer good local shopping facilities and there are excellent connections into London, with Heathrow Airport and the M4 motorway nearby.

Regular services run from Taplow to Reading and London Paddington, and will be connected by the arrival of Crossrail in the region which is set to enhance rail commuting into central London.

The property is approached via a sweeping gravel drive with private parking for numerous vehicles. The grounds envelop the property and are well screened with mature planting to the front and rear including a variety of established trees and shrubs. The rear garden is laid to level lawn and is accessed via a spacious terrace for outdoor entertaining, with a border of box and lavender. The rear garden also features a superb fenced outdoor swimming pool with surrounding stone patio.

Separate to the main accommodation is a double carport and attached gym, with an external staircase leading to the first floor annexe which includes a studio bedroom/living area/kitchen and a shower room.

Additional Information
A magnificently timbered Grade II Listed Barn of enormous character dating from the 14th Century. Tithe Barn was constructed originally in Burnham Abbey which was endowed in 1266 by Richard Earl of Cornwall, brother of Henry III. It was assumed that the Tithe Barn dates from this time, but tree ring analysis of timbers conducted by English Heritage, although inconclusive, doubts this and dates it to the 14th Century.
