About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Prime

Overlooking Taplow, with upper views stretching as far as Windsor Castle, the main house dates from the late nineteenth century and sits in beautiful landscaped gardens. The current owners have lived in Maryfield for the past seventeen years and have created a stunning family home incorporating new designs, whilst retaining a sense of the house’s history and many original features.

Both the main house and cottage are beautifully decorated with sumptuous fabrics and furnishings, including Designers Guild and echoing the Soho-Farmhouse style. The annexe cottage was built in the 1920s as a servants’ wing for the then owners,

Sir John and Lady Beatrice Pole Carew.

The reception hall has attractive tessellated floor with a striking central staircase and leads to the studio drawing room, which for many years, has been the setting for family Christmas festivities. Embracing its tranquil aspect over the gardens this room has been invaluable during lockdown as the centre of family life for music, reading, art and the sewing bee! The formal sitting room with its wood burning stove creates a cosy retreat for entertaining family and friends whilst the study with its bespoke oak panelling and detailed architrave over the door, offers the opportunity to work efficiently and effectively in a beautiful space.

The wide and elegant central staircase rises to the large first floor library landing, fitted with generous floor to ceiling bookshelves. The double-aspect principal bedroom suite has a walk-through dressing room and a beautifully appointed and contemporary en suite bathroom. There are two further elegant guest bedroom suites with modern en suite bathrooms.

The kitchen/breakfast/family room has a double height ceiling with bespoke lighting to flood the space. A large, modern and highly practical space, as well as being a stylish, fun family area for cosy suppers, which flows into formal dining and the

orangery. Its double aspects are over a glass corridor, providing a lovely internal courtyard with water rill and flowering wisteria and the impressive Ibiza inspired rear garden. Commensurate with a house of this size, from the kitchen is a laundry room and a large service and preparation room with two large pantries. This lends itself to effortless entertaining in style and scale. This is a home built for sharing and for entertaining.

On the other side of the courtyard is the gym and cloakroom, accessed by a spacious hallway flanked by a boot room and wine store.

Ascending to the second floor, the views over the rolling countryside become even more impressive and the staircase opens onto another large landing, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom, shower room, luggage room and sauna.

This lovely country house offers plenty of storage on all floors.

Access can be gained from the main house or through a separate front door enabling guests and family alike to retain their privacy. The cottage offers a sitting room with a log burner, kitchen and utility room, main bedroom with walk in wardrobe

and second bedroom, both served by a shared shower room. This part of the house has served its purpose for the children during their teenage years, for visiting guests and latterly for ageing relatives. Yet again, there are stunning views from this part of the house over the village with a particularly good view of Windsor Castle on a clear day.

Outside
The house sits in the middle of impressive landscaped gardens, designed for low maintenance, which amount to over one and a half acres of formal and informal green spaces. A key feature is the walled kitchen garden which serves as a suntrap and provides the backdrop for lazy days and al fresco entertaining. All from an Ibiza inspired pavilion and a vaulted outdoor orangery and enclosed by handmade gates of wood and

bespoke ironwork from the local forge.

Beyond the walled garden are swathes of lawns and a variety of garden spaces that offers a blissful escape from pa
