Property description



This exceptional three/four bedroom house is tucked away in a secluded setting, close to the historic Great Fosters Hotel, the recent recipient of a Michelin star.

The property may appear as though it should be listed, but it is not. Externally the property offers a wealth of character with exposed beam-work, spiral staircase which forms the ‘tower’ and the weather vane overlooking a courtyard to the front helps create an almost unique environment.

Tower Cottage has been skilfully re-configured, extended and undergone an extensive refurbishment programme by the current owners over the last few years. It has been finished to a high standard with contemporary complimenting the character and retains a lovely homely feel and a warm ambiance throughout.

The house would suit a family, ‘downsizer’ or professional couple who will appreciate the generously proportioned rooms and close proximity to both excellent state, private and International schooling. Egham & Virginia Water train stations are both about one mile away, offering services into London Waterloo.

Egham is an outstanding location with a choice of superb amenities; the vibrant High Street with individual shops, boutiques, restaurants, wine bars and gastro pubs is just a few minutes’ away, and supermarkets such as Waitrose are close to hand. Windsor Great Park is very close and nearby Wentworth is host of many sport and leisure facilities. In addition to Great Fosters, Runnymede Hotel, on the banks of the Thames, offers great dining and spa facilities and Runnymede itself, a National Trust site, recently celebrated the 800th year of the signing of the Magna Charter.

The owners had an inspirational design and building project in mind, which was undertaken to transform the house into this brilliant home. In their design, the owners specified the large kitchen/breakfast/family room with an additional Orangery to be at the rear of the house – which is perfect not only for day to day family life, but also for entertaining their friends and family. It has a huge roof lantern and its windows and doors provide a lovely vista and access onto the large patio and 100’ Southerly facing garden, which gives an added dimension to the room and also provides an excellent, safe place for the children to play (and the adults to indulge in the hot tub!). The living room area has a multi-fuel burning stove and wide-planked wood flooring which extends through the whole ground floor and as well as the bespoke kitchen there is now a utility room and study/4th bedroom. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en suite shower room to the master bedroom which has also has bespoke fitted wardrobes. Attention to detail also includes modern character-style leaded light double glazed windows set in wooden frames/beams and a renewed gas central heating/hot water system.

The area benefits from excellent transport links to London and the south east, with easy access to the M25, M4 and M3. London Heathrow Airport (10-15 mins) and London Gatwick (35mins) are also within easy reach.

Schools around the area include Manorcrofts, St Cuthberts, St Judes, Trumps Green, St Anns Heath, Eton College, Wellington College, tasis, The acs International School, the Marist, St Georges and Bishopsgate School, as well as numerous other quality establishments. The area really is blessed with choice in this department.
