Location

Hawthorn Lodge is located in the hamlet of Moss End, in the parish of Warfield, home to one of the finest churches in Berkshire and located almost equidistant between Ascot and Maidenhead. Despite its semi-rural setting, Hawthorn Lodge is well positioned for easy access to Heathrow Airport, central London and the motorway network via the M4 ( J6, J8/9, J10). The M4 offers access to the M25 and the A404 (M)at Maidenhead leads to the M40.

The village centres of Binfield and Holyport cater for day-to-day shopping requirements, while the towns of Ascot, Windsor and Bracknell provide more comprehensive recreational and shopping amenities. The area is well known for boutiques, bars and traditional country public houses and boasts some of the finest restaurants, with Coworth Park in Ascot, as well as the Michelin starred The Waterside Inn and The Fat Duck restaurants in Bray. For more local dining, the house is close to The Shepherd’s House public house.

Leisure and relaxation opportunities abound with Nirvana Spa at Wokingham, The Macdonald Berystede and Coworth Park Health Clubs at Ascot and The Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, with extensive leisure and recreational facilities. In addition there is golf at Wentworth, Sunningdale and The Berkshire in Ascot, horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, polo at Coworth Park, the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club and Guards Polo Club and boating on the River Thames at Windsor and Henley.

The surrounding countryside provides lovely country walks and bridlepaths, with attractions such as Virginia Water Lake, The Savill Garden, Windsor Great Park and Windsor Castle also within reach.

The area is fortunate to have a great selection of independent schools including Lambrook School, Wellington College, Eton College, Papplewick, Heathfield School, St George’s and St Mary’s Ascot. For international schooling, TASIS (The American School) and ACS (American Community School) are both within a few miles in Egham.

Description

Hawthorn Lodge is an exceptional country house believed to date back to the 1650s, with 19th Century additions. In recent years it has been the subject of a comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment to ensure that whilst character is retained, the house has modern and luxurious features.

Hawthorn Lodge provides well proportioned and thoughtfully designed living space suited to both entertaining and family life and adjoins a stunning annexe with a magnificent, vaulted 35’ reception room with an impressive open fireplace. This area interlinks with the main house and can therefore be integrated into day-to-day living or utilised as self-contained guest/teen accommodation. In addition to the main reception area, the annexe includes a fitted bar, study and cloakroom downstairs and a shower room and two double bedrooms (one with balcony) on the first floor.

The main house has been beautifully designed with elegant reception rooms and harmonious styling throughout. There is a superb triple aspect drawing room with a deep bay window overlooking the grounds, an inglenook fireplace and two sets of French doors opening to the stunning conservatory. A fairly recent addition, this garden room has been designed to take full advantage of the attractive outlook with French doors to the gardens, under floor heating and UV glass ensuring year-round comfort.

The dining room, part of the original house, is of fine proportions with an open fireplace, oak flooring and an external door. Adjacent is the family room, perfect for relaxing, with a corner fireplace, panelled walls and bespoke shelving with cupboards under. Of further note is the superb kitchen/breakfast room which has a warm ambience and benefits from an excellent range of bespoke hand-painted units, a combination Aga and a central island with additional storage and preparation area, topped with granite work surfaces.

The first floor provides six charming bedrooms (currently configured as five plus a dressing room) including a master bedroom with a delightful balcony overlooking the grounds and a luxurious en suite bathroom. There are three further en suite bathrooms, all individually designed with high quality fittings.

OUTSIDE
The gardens and grounds are a fine feature of Hawthorn Lodge and have been beautifully landscaped to take full advantage of the mature and private setting and to provide
seasonal interest. To the south of the house is the sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, and the swimming pool. There are extensive formal lawns, well stocked shrub and herbaceous borders, hedgerows, a wildlife pond, an orchard with plum, apple and pear trees and a woodland path, ideal for reaching the additional gates on horse back to access
the Binfield bridleway network. Tucked away nearby is the all-weather tennis court.

Hawthorne Lodge is approached via electrically operated double gates onto a sweeping driveway flanked by formal lawns which continues to the turning circle to the front of
the house and onwards to the parking area, garage block and stables. There are two stable blocks, one with two studio apartments above, each with their own private access. There is also a useful detached laundry/gym with under floor heating and loft storage above and a machine store.

Square Footage: 6,695 sq ft
Acreage: 12 Acres
