Set within mature secluded gardens and backing onto farmland, Albany House is a substantial property that was vastly extended and improved by the present owners in 2010 to suit a discerning and busy household. The bright and flexible living space is arranged over three floors and incorporates a self-contained two bedroom annexe that provides ideal accommodation for guests and/or staff.
Albany House enjoys a rural setting within easy reach of Ascot and Windsor, both of which offer an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. Within the area is the renowned culinary village of Bray (7 miles) which boasts the Michelin starred restaurants, the Fat Duck, Waterside Inn and Hinds Head. Road communications are good with the M4 (J6) being just 5 miles away and providing access to Heathrow, Central London, the West Country and the M25. Rail connections 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 in 2018.
Sporting and leisure pursuits in the area include racing at Ascot and Windsor; polo at Smith's Lawn and The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club; golf at Wentworth, Sunningdale and Maidenhead; rowing and boating on the River Thames and Dorney Lake; riding and walking in Windsor Great Park and surrounding countryside; Legoland (4 miles), Windsor Castle, the Long Walk, Theatre Royal and numerous parks.
Educational opportunities in the region are superb and schools include Lambrook in Winkfield Row, Papplewick, St. George's, Heathfield and St. Mary's in Ascot, Brigidine and Upton House in Windsor, The American Community School and Royal Holloway in Egham, Wellington College in Crowthorne, and Eton College. Situated about 4 miles away is Holyport College, the new 'free school' sponsored by Eton College.
The house features under-floor heating on the ground floor and the slate tiled flooring in the reception hall, kitchen and boot room, together with solid oak flooring throughout the remainder of the house, combine to create a sense of calm and clean lines. A notable feature of the property is the extensive garden room boasting two roof lanterns that saturate the room with natural light and three sets of bi-folding doors that open out to the garden to combine indoor and outdoor living areas. This room, combined with the additional three reception rooms and the extensively fitted kitchen and walk-in larder, provides excellent space for family living and large scale entertaining. A serving hatch conveniently links the dining room with the kitchen and a further hatch links with an additional 'butler's kitchen'.
Located on the first floor is the master bedroom with an en suite dressing room, bathroom and a good size study, three further bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom. (The toilets on this floor are fitted with heated digital bidet seats that incorporate dryers). It is worth noting that the family bathroom and bedrooms 3 and 4 may be separated from the remainder of the floor by a sliding door, thereby creating privacy. The upper floor is arranged to provide three further bedrooms and an en suite bathroom. A second set of stairs links the two upper floors to enable reconfiguration of the accommodation.
The delightful gardens are undoubtedly a fine feature of the property and have been thoughtfully planted with a variety of plants, shrubs and trees to provide a secluded, tranquil and restful setting. The extensive lawns are interspersed with flower/shrub beds and mature trees to provide visual appeal and a paved patio to the rear of the house provides superb 'al fresco' dining/relaxation space.
Outbuildings include a machiner y store and an adjoining area that has water pipes set in readiness for the conversion into a sauna. A brick built building that is situated at the side of the house houses a workshop and a store room. To the front, the property is approached via electrically operated double gates opening onto a shingle driveway that leads to the double garage and provides parking for several cars.
