Cookham is an historic riverside village on the Berkshire/Buckinghamshire border. There are many buildings of great architectural interest as well as delightful rural surroundings, much of it National Trust owned. Cookham High Street offers a fine selection of shops and boutiques, pubs and restaurants, with everyday shopping needs catered for at nearby Cookham Rise. Additionally Marlow offers an excellent range of shopping and leisure facilities.
The area is renowned for its wide range of schooling, both state and independent, and local schools include Herries in Cookham Dean, Cookham Dean Primary School, St. Piranâs and Claires Court in Maidenhead and Sir William Borlase Grammar in Marlow.
Rail connections to London (Paddington) are available from Cookham Rise (via the branch line to Maidenhead). Cookham is conveniently located for access to the M40 (junction 4) and the M4 at Maidenhead (junction 8/9), which in turn provides access to the M3, M25, Heathrow Airport and central London.
Sporting facilities in the area are varied, with golf at Marlow, Maidenhead, Temple, Harleyford and Henley, boating on some stretches of the River Thames and horse racing at Windsor and Ascot.
Pound House is an imposing attached family home dating back to around 1850 with later additions. This property has fine period features, such as open fireplaces, decorative cornicing and wood panelling, successfully combining with the contemporary, to provide a unique family home. Set behind an aged brick wall and black timber gates the house is approached via a cobblestone driveway leading to the entrance of the house and the double garage.
On the ground floor is an elegant reception hall with marble tiles leading to the stunning kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen features chequered black and white tiles and is fitted with a comprehensive range of bespoke painted units, granite work surfaces, walk-in larder and a curved granite breakfast bar separating the main kitchen from the breakfast area. Arched double doors lead to the dining room with its rich woods, traditional dÃ©cor, part panelled walls and an unusual high curved glazed ceiling with timber joints. Opposite is the drawing room with period fireplace and a deep bay with French doors to the terrace. The adjacent sitting room also has a feature fireplace and deep bay with French doors to the terrace. Finally there is a well fitted utility/boot room and cloakroom.
The first floor bedrooms are well appointed and of good proportions, with the main bedroom in particular enjoying very high ceilings, elegant decorative cornicing, picture rails and a charming deep bay window enjoying views over the rear garden. There is a superb fitted shower room adjacent to the main bedroom and a further shower room and family bathroom, together with two further double bedrooms on this floor. Stairs rise to the second floor which offers two additional bedrooms; these could provide ideal au pair or teenager accommodation.
The house sits within mature grounds offering a good degree of seclusion. An attractive feature is the paved stone terrace which spans the width of the house and is perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. Mature shrubs, tall trees and an array of flowers border the main lawn area. There is a door offering access to the double garage and a timber side gate leading to the driveway and front of the house.
