The Story

SPACIOUS DRAWING ROOM
Providences Cottages date back to 1862 and this particular property has been extended and renovated over the years. Work has been carried out sympathetically but also to ensure the house is suitable and comfortable for modern day living. The ground floor of the cottage features good living space: there is a long drawing room with a bay window, which is a very flexible space. “This is a light room, with a brick fireplace at one end and the spiral staircase at the other end,” says the owner. The drawing room is large enough to be arranged with comfortable seating, as well as dining furniture, depending on the lifestyle requirements of those living here.

INDOOR-OUTDDOR LIVING
Further on through the house is a dining room, with French windows on to the garden. This is a great entertaining room and could be ideal for anyone who enjoys indoor-outdoor living. It opens on to a terrace, where there is space for a table and other outdoor furniture.
The dining room is well-placed for access to the kitchen but could equally be used as a snug, play room or even a study. The kitchen is well-presented and offers plenty of storage and work space. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. Upstairs there are three good-sized, double bedroom bedrooms, together with the family bathroom.

LOW MAINTENANCE
The current owner has upgraded the property with a few touches of his own. Décor has been kept simple, light and traditional. This means new owners will be able to move straight in with their own furniture and furnishings. “I have repainted throughout and added UPVC double glazing and doors,” he says. “I have also had a new boiler installed.” He adds: “This is a very easy and comfortable house to live in,” he says.

BEAUTIFUL PARKS
The property is also suitable for anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors, he points out. It is within easy reach of Crown Estate land, including Windsor Great Park. Windsor Great Park encompasses The Savill Garden, Virginia Water, The Valley Gardens and the Long Walk and Deer Park. It dates back to pre-Saxon times and was used by William I as a hunting ground but was not defined as one large 4,800-acre until the 13th century. Today it includes historical monuments, ancient forests and stunning horticultural displays, as well as rare wildlife, plants and fungi. There is also plenty to do within the Ascot area, from attending the races or walking in the beautiful racecourse grounds to playing golf at any one of prestigious golf clubs in the area or spending time at a luxury health and fitness club.

PLEASANT VIEWS
The house at Providence Cottages could be perfect for a family. It overlooks Locks Ride Park, which is an excellent amenity for anyone with children. “There are pleasant views to both the front and rear of the house,” says the owner. “I also have off-road parking for two cars, which is very rare in this area.”
The location is popular with commuters as the transport connections are very good, he adds.
“It is easy to get to London and further afield. The property is well-located for reaching the M3, M4 and M25, and the railway station, with its trains into London, is just a short drive away. The house is also very well-placed for reaching airports for those who have to travel abroad,” he says.
“It is nice to live somewhere which has that semi-rural feel yet is also very accessible.”

Setting The Scene

The house is set back with parking for up to two cars at the front. At the back, the house opens on to an attractive garden. Here there is a terrace for outside dining, a manageable lawn with pretty borders and a shed for storage.
