Set within beautiful gardens and grounds, Merlins is a pretty period house that has been lovingly restored and improved by the present owners to create a truly stunning family home. Backing onto land belonging to the Royal Berkshire Polo Club and situated close to Windsor Great Park, the house enjoys a private setting and, combined with the spacious accommodation, swimming pool and tennis court, is perfect for a family that enjoys entertaining and an outdoor lifestyle.
The accommodation is light and gracious and has been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful gardens and this is particularly evident in the kitchen/breakfast room where a wall of bi-folding doors open up to and 'bring the outside in'. Various bespoke decked areas provide excellent relaxation and 'al fresco' dining space, perfect for those lazy afternoons and warm summer evenings. For the more energetic, there is the indoor swimming pool and also an 'all weather' tennis court, where a decked area provides an excellent vantage point from which to enjoy the game. In addition to the beautifully maintained formal gardens there is also a paddock and a natural meadow with a small pond.
Set behind double electrically operated gates is a long driveway that leads towards the house and culminates in a turning circle parking area where access may be gained to the triple garage. Above the garaging is a useful self-contained studio with a kitchen and a shower room.
Merlins enjoys a semi-rural location in the heart of polo country yet is well situated for the motorway network and local shopping facilities. Winkfield lies mid-way between Ascot and Windsor, both of which offer a range of amenities and there are well-regarded restaurants and gastropubs in the area, including The Winning Post in Winkfield, The Belvedere Arms in Sunninghill, Bluebells in Sunningdale and the Michelin starred Royal Oak in Paley Street and Fat Duck, Waterside Inn and Hinds Head in Bray.
For the commuter, rail links to London (Waterloo) are available from Ascot and Windsor and to London (Paddington) from Windsor (via Slough) and Maidenhead. Crossrail, the new high-speed service, is due to begin running from Maidenhead in 2019. Road communications are excellent with the M4 and M3 providing access to Heathrow Airport, Central London, the West Country and the M25.
Recreational facilities in the region are excellent and include golf at the Wentworth, Sunningdale, The Berkshire and Swinley Forest golf clubs, polo at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club and Smith's Lawn, horse racing at Ascot, Windsor, Kempton Park, Sandown Park, Epsom and Newbury, and rowing and boating on Dorney Lake and some stretches of the River Thames. Spa facilities are available at The Berystede, Coworth Park and Penny Hill Park and walking, cycling and riding may be enjoyed in Windsor Great Park .
Schooling is also very well catered for with a superb selection of schools including Lambrook, Ludgrove, Sunningdale, LVS Ascot, Papplewick and Eton College. For international schooling, TASIS (The American School) and ACS (American Community School) are both situated in the Egham area.
