The Laurels enjoys a tranquil wooded setting within Burleigh Road yet is less than a mile away from the bustling Ascot High Street. The property is truly at one with its surroundings, with delightful landscaped gardens backed by mature trees and hedging, creating privacy and seclusion. The house, which has been beautifully and thoughtfully refurbished, is a testament to the current owner’s obvious design flair and eye for detail, and the numerous features include a Sonos audio system, bespoke 6-metre doors on the ground floor, Hansgrohe and Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, sliding space-saving doors to some rooms, and plantation style window shutters. The interior has been styled in sympathetic muted tones, creating elegant spaces for both relaxing and entertaining and conveys a sense of calm and tranquillity.

The ground floor accommodation is arranged around a spacious reception hall that creates a welcoming and lasting impression upon entering the house.

Various reception rooms offer immense flexibility and include a sizeable drawing room featuring a fireplace with inset log burner, and double doors opening out to the rear patio and garden. There is an adjoining study and, situated off the kitchen/dining room, is a sitting room and separate family room. The multi-functional kitchen/dining room is comprehensively fitted with a bespoke range of hand-made and hand-painted units, a marble-topped central island providing informal dining space, integral appliances and a Smeg 6-ring range style cooker. Of particular note is the bespoke walk-in larder, fitted with a marble top and wine cooler below, oak shelving and ample spice storage space. The dining area provides ample space for a formal dining table, with double doors opening the room out to the garden and patio. There is an adjoining utility room, and a cloakroom located off the reception hall completes the accommodation on this floor.

Situated on the first floor is the sumptuous master suite boasting a spacious bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and double doors opening out to a Juliet balcony that affords a superb outlook over the rear garden. The suite also includes a dressing room and a bathroom with a stand-alone modern bath and walk-in shower. A guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and two additional bedrooms are located on this floor, along with a stunning, generously proportioned family bathroom featuring a stand-alone bath and an unusually spacious walk-in shower.

On the upper level, a bedroom with an adjoining sitting room, and a charming bathroom, combine to provide excellent au-pair/guest accommodation. Situated above the garage and access from an inner hallway, is an addition bedroom with an en suite shower room.

Burleigh Road is situated within a mile of Ascot High Street with its selection of shops catering for day-to-day needs. The area is well known for its shops, restaurants and traditional country public houses whilst the towns of Windsor, Camberley and Guildford offer more extensive shopping, leisure and dining facilities. The region also boasts some of the finest restaurants with Coworth Park in Ascot, as well as Michelin starred restaurants including The Royal Oak in Paley Street, Michel Roux's Waterside Inn and Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck in Bray.

For the commuter, The Laurels is well placed for rail services to London (Waterloo) from Ascot station and the M3 may be accessed at J3, in turn linking with the M25. Heathrow Airport is about 12.5 miles away while executive/private aviation facilities are available at Fairoaks, White Waltham or Farnborough Airports.

There are prestigious golf clubs in the area including Wentworth, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest and The Berkshire, and for the equestrian enthusiast, racing may be enjoyed at the nearby Ascot Racecourse and at Windsor. The picturesque Virginia Water Lake, Windsor Great Park, Savill Garden and Chobham Common provide opportunities for walking and cycling. Legoland and Windosr Castle are also popular attractions.
The area is fortunate to have some excellent schools, both in the state and independent sectors.

The Laurels is set at the end of a long driveway, behind electrically operated gates. There is ample parking for several cars at the front of the house, in addition to the double garage. The meticulously maintained gardens are an outstanding feature of the property and have been designed to provide seasonal relaxation and entertaining space.

To the rear, the meticulously maintained garden is laid to lawn inset with flower beds/borders, and is enclosed by mature trees and laurel hedging to ensure seclusion. A raised decked area creates the perfect spot in which to relax whilst a paved patio area spanning the rear of the house provides additional ‘al fresco’ dining and relaxation space.
