Grade II listed country house of immense character and charm, which has been meticulously maintained. It has a pretty walled garden and heated swimming pool in grounds of about 2.4 acres.
Reception hall, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen,cloakroom, main bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms with vaulted beamed ceilings, family bathroom, annexe: currently used as a bedroom with sitting room and bathroom (prospective buyers would need to clarify whether a ‘regularisation’ certificate is required before a formal bedroom status is applied).
Set within mature, secluded grounds including a walled garden of 0.7 acre and one of the most picturesque properties in the area. The property is Grade II Listed and dates back to the mid-late 15th Century and a former ‘Hall House’. Subsequently it was known as The Prince of Wales Public House and then converted to a private residence with a later addition. There are many original and most interesting features, as you would expect from a property of this period, including vaulted ceilings to the bedrooms, a large inglenook fireplace, stone floors to the ground floor and a wealth of exposed wall and ceiling beams, all fastidiously maintained by the current owners of over 30 years.
In addition to the house, there is a separate annexe, converted from some of the stables, which provides delightful, ancillary accommodation overlooking the gardens.
We thoroughly recommend this property for the integrity of its period, being a true, period country house, set in private grounds and within Winkfield village.
The gardens very much compliment this wonderful period gem, providing formal gardens which include box hedging, stone pathways, a delightful pond surrounded by rose bushes and mature flowering shrubs, a fruit orchard and all interlaced with lawned areas.
There is a terraced area adjoining the house with stone retained walls and lavender bushes, as well as a swimming pool to one side ideally sited for the sun. In addition, there are numerous outbuildings and stables which includes a covered area for two cars. Within the wall, there is a wrought iron gate leading through to a well tended grass field. Potential buyers should be aware there is a public footpath across this. In all, the garden and grounds extend to 2.44 acres.
