Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A remarkable family house that has been imaginatively designed to make the most of its orientation, and the use of glass not only floods the house with natural light but also exploits the wonderful outlook over its landscaped gardens. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, with under-floor heating to the first and second floors, and is equally suited to both family living and entertaining.

The impressive reception/dining hall creates a striking first impression upon entering the house and the sense of light and space is enhanced by a bay with double storey windows. The drawing room features oak flooring, a solid fuel fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows and there is a separate family room, also with oak flooring and an inset pebble effect gas fire; these rooms all benefit from double doors opening out to the rear terrace.

The ‘Mark Williamson’ kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively fitted with a range of units, a central island, granite worksurfaces, Sub-Zero fridge and freezer drawer combinations, and various integrated Miele, Gaggenau and Neff appliances. There are two adjoining utility rooms, one with its own outside access. The ground floor further comprises a ‘Neville Johnson’ fitted study, a cloakroom, and a leisure area comprising a gym with a changing/shower room and a swimming pool with an automated cover, underwater lighting and a relaxation/seating area.

On the first floor is the sumptuous master suite comprising a bedroom with direct access to a balcony overlooking the gardens, ‘his and her’ dressing rooms and a luxurious Villeroy & Boch bathroom. There are three additional bedrooms on this level, all en suite, whilst the upper floor is host to two en suite bedrooms and a spacious games room with a balcony at each end.

Ardgowan enjoys a semi-rural location, opposite Windsor Forest, yet is well placed for the motorway network, Heathrow Airport and local shopping facilities. Extensive shopping and leisure facilities are available at Windsor, where there are regular train services to London Waterloo and London Paddington, via Slough. Rail services to Paddington are also available from Maidenhead, due to benefit from Crossrail, the new high-speed service.

Recreational facilities in the region include golf at the nearby Bird Hills Golf Centre, Wentworth, Sunningdale, The Berkshire and Swinley Forest golf clubs, polo at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club and Smith's Lawn, horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, and rowing and boating on Dorney Lake and some stretches of the River Thames. Walking, cycling and riding may be enjoyed in Windsor Great Park.

Schooling is also very well catered for with a superb selection of schools including Lambrook, Charters, Ludgrove, Sunningdale, LVS Ascot, Papplewick and Eton College.

Ardgowan is approached via electrically operated gates opening onto a block-paved driveway with a turning circle, providing ample space for parking, in addition to the triple garage. There is also a detached outbuilding/studio with central heating and a WC, offering the potential for a variety of uses.

The extensive landscaped gardens have been creatively designed to provide ‘year round’ visual interest and feature a south-westerly paved terrace, formal planting, children’s play equipment, a breeze house, and a discreetly situated vegetable garden and pond. Beyond the garden lies the paddock land with stables; there is also independent vehicular access. In all, the grounds extend to about 5.5 acres.
