The Story

There have been so many happy times at the house on North Road – afternoons by the swimming pool and family meals around the dining table by the window. The current owners have lived at the property since 1978 and have a lifetime of fond memories, they explain.
“We moved here when the children were teenagers and loved the fact the house had such a large garden,” they recall. “It was very tranquil and we could tell it would make a wonderful family home for all of us. We added the pool to the garden and went on to have many good times out there, with everyone swimming or sitting out in the sunshine. It has been perfect.”

FAMILY TIMES
The detached, three-bedroom property dates back to 1965 and was built in the grounds of a large Victorian house. Inside it offered the owners good living space both upstairs and down.
“The rooms were all spacious and had nice views out on to the mature garden – the drawing room was especially attractive, with its double aspect and picture windows.”
This generous L-shaped space has enough room to be organised with comfortable seating and with a dining table and chairs. It is ideal for family life and entertaining.
“You can sit in here and relax or enjoy a meal at the table and take in the lovely views at the same time. It has been perfect for family get-togethers; for birthday and Christmas meals and celebrations.”

PEACEFUL SETTING
Both the drawing room and the breakfast room, which adjoins the kitchen, open up on to the garden. A raised dining terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea or a long lunch out in the sunshine, overlooking the garden.
“There are also other places to sit out and enjoy the peaceful setting – we have benches where we can sit quietly but there is also space for people to spread out if there are lots of guests here. It has been fun having the garden and the pool for everyone to enjoy.”

GREAT POTENTIAL
Although the living and sleeping space has suited the current owners and their family very well, there is scope for change, they suggest. New owners could simply update the house and bring their own decorative style to rooms or they could embark on a major project.
“The bedrooms and the bathroom upstairs are all a good size but there is certainly scope for creating four bedrooms and possibly an en suite bathroom on the first floor if someone needed more rooms,” they say. “New owners could also consider extending up into the loft to create extra bedroom space or extending out.”

WORK AND PLAY
The garage is integral to the house and could be transformed into additional living space if required. It could also hold potential to become a home office or leisure space.
“There is also a workshop or barn in the garden. This is a good hobby space: it is very large and has electricity so could also be suitable for a variety of uses,” they say. “This house is ready to move into but equally could hold exciting possibilities for someone looking for a home to make their own mark on.”

OUT AND ABOUT
Chavey Down is a sought-after setting for families keen to live in the Ascot area. The current owners have enjoyed being part of the friendly neighbourhood. It has been a quiet place to live yet has offered them good access shops, schools and transport connections.
“Chavey Down is only a short distance from Ascot High Street, with its wide variety of shops and coffee shops, and from the train stations at Martins Heron and Ascot. You are also within easy reach of lots of wonderful parks to enjoy after work and at the weekends. Windsor Great Park, Virginia Water Lake and Chobham Common are all just a short drive away,” they say. “We have enjoyed the good access to Windsor and to Bracknell, where there are lots of amenities for families.”
They add: “This has been a wonderful home to us. It has been everything we hoped it would be when we first saw it and we have loved living in the area.”
