Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding Grade II listed property that has been beautifully refurbished by the present owners, successfully blending the many features of the period with the luxuries of modern-day living to create a truly stunning home. The accommodation is light and gracious with high ceilings, as one would expect in a property of this style, and is equally suited to family life and formal entertaining.

The welcoming reception hall creates a striking and lasting impression upon entering the house and features chevron wood flooring that extends throughout much of the ground floor. The spacious kitchen/dining room enjoys a dual aspect and is extensively fitted with a range of sleek units, an island with a breakfast bar and integral appliances including a 4-ring Kingswood gas hob, a Neff oven, a Kingswood dishwasher and a Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer. The elegant sitting room, also enjoying a dual aspect, boasts a contemporary fireplace and direct access to the rear terrace.

On the first floor there is a spacious master suite comprising a 21'9" bedroom with an en suite dressing room and a shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the upper floor there are two further bedrooms, a shower room, a laundry room and a study area. Many of the rooms on the upper levels enjoy beautiful views over the communal gardens and grounds.

The house is approached via double electrically operated gates opening onto a shared gravelled driveway that leads to a double garage and provides parking space for several vehicles. Decorative wrought iron pedestrian gates open onto a pathway that intersects the property's private lawned garden and leads to the house entrance. Clipped hedging and well-stocked flower beds run alongside both sides of the lawn and climbing plants, including wistaria, complement the house elevation. To the rear of the house, there is a private terrace that provides excellent 'al fresco' dining/relaxation space, enhanced by twin electrically operated awnings with valances that prevent glare and provide privacy. Beyond the terrace and undoubtedly a unique feature, is the communal grounds that extend to approximately 12 acres and comprise meticulously maintained formal gardens, a 'managed' meadow and a picturesque lake, all of which offer pleasant walks.

Latymer House enjoys a semi-rural setting in Winkfield village, close to Windsor Forest. Ascot¸ Windsor and the surrounding towns and villages are well known for their shops, bars and country pubs and the area also boasts some superb fine dining with Coworth Park in Ascot, as well as The Waterside Inn and Heston Blumenthal's restaurants in Bray. The popular Winning Post is less than two miles away.

Sporting and leisure facilities in the area include prestigious golf clubs including Wentworth (which has comprehensive sporting facilities), Sunningdale, Swinley Forest and The Berkshire; polo is available locally at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, Guards Polo Club and Coworth Park. Rowing and boating may be enjoyed on the River Thames at Windsor, Marlow and Henley and the local countryside offers some excellent walking including Swinley Forest, the picturesque Virginia Water Lake and The Savill Garden. Riding is available at Chobham Common and Windsor Great Park. Attractions for all of the family include Legoland (just over two miles away), The Theatre Royal in Windsor, Windsor Castle and Windsor Leisure Centre.

The area is also fortunate to have some excellent schools, both in the independent and state sectors.
