Full description

Steeple View is approached via a private rural lane and is a rare find for the equestrian enthusiast. In addition to the main house, there is a swimming pool and comprehensive equestrian facilities, all set out within about 5.24 acres of beautifully maintained grounds. The property also benefits from planning permission for a 60m x 20m ménage and 20m x 20m turn-out pen (Bracknell Council’s app. no. 15/01096/FUL).
The spacious family house has been the subject of extension and improvement and many of the rooms enjoy wonderful views over the gardens and paddocks.

The ground floor accommodation is flexible and includes an elegant triple aspect drawing room, with a feature fireplace and double doors opening out to the rear terrace, an interconnecting dining room and a spacious kitchen/family room/conservatory, that is undoubtedly a key feature of the house. The kitchen area, fitted with an extensive range of units, a central island with an integral breakfast bar and numerous integral appliances, is open-plan with the conservatory area, perfect for informal dining and entertaining. There is an adjoining utility room, a cloakroom, a study/office and a guest bedroom and separate shower room.

Located on the first floor is the master suite comprising a good-size bedroom, an en suite dressing room and a luxurious bathroom, a second bedroom with an en suite shower room, two additional bedrooms and a family shower room.

Steeple View enjoys a rural setting and is well placed for transport networks and local amenities. Heathrow Airport (Terminal 5) is just over 15 miles away while executive/private aviation facilities are available at Fairoaks, White Waltham or Farnborough Airport. There are also regular train services to London Waterloo from Ascot, Martins Heron and Bracknell stations; London Paddington is accessible from Maidenhead Station which is due to benefit from the Crossrail high-speed route.

The towns of Ascot, Maidenhead and Windsor offer an excellent range of shopping and leisure amenities and there are some well-regarded restaurants and gastropubs in the area including The Belvedere Arms in Sunninghill, Bluebells in Sunningdale, The Barn at Coworth Park and Michelin starred Royal Oak in Paley Street, the Fat Duck, Waterside Inn and Hinds Head in Bray.

Sporting facilities in the area are excellent and include golf at prestigious Wentworth, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest and The Berkshire golf clubs, horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, polo at Smith’s Lawn and the Royal Berkshire, and the picturesque local countryside boasts excellent walks and horse riding.

A gravelled carriage driveway leads to the front of the house where beautifully maintained gardens have been designed and planted to provide immense visual interest and year-round colour. The driveway continues to a large parking area and provides access to two car ports and covered parking for a lorry. Adjoining the car ports is a sizeable store room and on the floor above, there is a further room.

To the rear of the house, an enclosed lawned garden creates a delightful setting and features well-stocked flower/shrubs borders and an ornamental pond. A sun terrace provides ideal outdoor space for dining and relaxation and a pedestrian gate to one side provides access to the enclosed swimming pool area and changing rooms.

The excellent equestrian facilities include a stable block comprising eight stables, a solarium/wash box, a groom’s room and a tack room, all arranged around hard-standing and entered via a 5-bar gate. There is also a generous hay barn, a utility room, a resurfaced and floodlit ménage (40m x 20m) and various paddocks enclosed by ‘post and rail’ fencing.
