Squirrels is a sensational brand new family home offering bright and spacious accommodation that combined with the modern and luxurious features lends itself equally well to both formal entertaining and relaxed family living. Designed with a discerning and busy household in mind, it meets all the aspirations and requirements of modern-day living.
The impressive, red-brick house, which is set back with a sweeping driveway, sits in a leafy, landscaped plot of almost half an acre. "This site is well known as it was originally a pub and then the Cinnamon Tree Indian restaurant," David says. "It is situated within Green Belt land and we were therefore incredibly lucky to get planning permission." The location is also highly desirable for the balance of quiet living and convenience it offers. "It is well positioned for good schools, such as Lambrook, and for reaching Ascot, Windsor and Maidenhead. It is also very peaceful when you are sitting out in the garden and has a semi-rural feel."
The substantial house is entered via an airy reception hall, with a beautiful oak staircase, cloakroom and walk-in cupboard. Double doors lead into the family room and the drawing room, which in turn has French windows on to the garden. With room for either an open fire or wood-burning stove, depending on the new owners' preference, the drawing room is likely to be where formal entertaining takes place and special occasions are celebrated. At the front of the house, there is also a useful dining room or study. "The beauty of this design is that it offers very flexible space to a family. New owners with younger children might wish to have one room arranged as a playroom while those with teenagers might choose to use another as a den for playing games, watching films and listening to music in."
The reception hall also opens into the property's crowning glory: its spectacular kitchen, breakfast and living room. "This is where the new owners are likely to spend most of their time, cooking, dining and relaxing together," says David. "In the summer months, they may well wish to pull the bi-folding doors right open at one end of the space to give themselves seamless indoor-outdoor living." With natural light streaming in through roof lanterns, as well as doors and windows, this stylish space features a large central island with breakfast bar, oak painted units, high-end, integrated appliances and quartz work surfaces. Doors lead through into the drawing room and a useful utility room, which has been designed to complement the kitchen. "Again, this space has so much flexibility and can be arranged to suit requirements," he adds.
All the bedroom and bathroom accommodation at the house is on the first floor. Here, three bedrooms have their own en suite bath or shower room, while two share the family bathroom. The master bedroom also enjoys a walk-through dressing room and access on to a private roof terrace, with glass balustrading. "This is a wonderful feature," David agrees. "The new owners will be able to sit out here in tranquillity, looking out over their garden and towards the trees beyond."
Setting the Scene
The property is set on a plot of just under half an acre and nestles within gated grounds. There is a large driveway to the front, leading to a detached double garage. To the rear, the house opens easily on to its enclosed garden, which features a broad terrace for outside dining and relaxation, as well as a good-sized lawn. "It is something of a blank canvas at the moment that new owners will be able to make their own," David suggests.
WITHIN EASY REACH
The premium home has been designed to offer exceptional levels of comfort. Thanks to concrete floors at both levels, there is underfloor heating throughout. There are also solid oak internal doors, LED light systems and solar panels providing 3kw of electricity. The beautiful bathrooms all have Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and there is Cat 6 cabling to the main rooms. "This house has been completed with great care and could be ideal for different owners," David observes. "It is in an excellent location for travelling to airports or to London by rail or road and is also near countryside with some beautiful walks and good golf courses. It is within walking distance of a renowned gastro pub and in reach of Windsor Great Park for walking, cycling and horse-riding. It will be a wonderful new home for its very first owners to enjoy."
