Description

A wonderfully located river Thames home with substantial mooring and views.

Location

Nestled on the edge of the Chilterns, Bourne End was first settled in 1236. Today it is a thriving village situated on the banks of the River Thames, popular with London commuters, young families and mature residents alike.

Wind Whistle, built in 1895 is set on the Berkshire bank of the River Thames and within close proximity of Bourne End Parade and Railway Station. The unique position of Cock Marsh provides an idyllic riverside retreat that feels like a haven, yet is a short stroll away from the facilities and station in Bourne End.

Just outside the town, the area opens out to glorious rolling countryside and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor pursuits are numerous, as are golf, football, cricket and rugby clubs.

For commuters, Bourne End station provides a superb link to Maidenhead, with London Paddington accessible from Bourne End platform in as little as 40 minutes. Beaconsfield also has an excellent station giving access to London Marylebone in just 23 minutes. Maidenhead (11 mins from Bourne End station) will soon benefit from the new Crossrail services, providing a new superb link to The City and Canary Wharf from 2020 (expected).

Description

The property is superbly presented throughout, with a lovely mix of open plan and separate accommodation and a layout that makes the most of the views over the river and the large plot. Wind Whistle is enviably situated at the top of the lane, giving beautiful uninterrupted views upstream on the river.

The property can be approached in two ways – on foot from the riverside path, or by the private jetty mooring from the ‘mainland’. A private double garage and jetty on the Bourne End side of the river is included within the sale, and provides the perfect way to approach Wind Whistle.

At the property, a pathway from the front garden leads to an enclosed porch and into an impressive modern kitchen with fabulous views over the rear garden and Winter Hill beyond. The kitchen features a central island with integral hob and there is a log burner providing a lovely focal point. A utility room and workshop/cellar beyond are accessed from here.

The dining room directly accessed from the kitchen features patio doors onto the garden while a beautifully light and spacious reception room with stained glass windows and French doors leading to a full width riverside conservatory displaying panoramic views across the river. The layout of these two rooms provide an ideal space for entertaining.

Three double bedrooms conclude the ground floor each benefitting from fitted wardrobes and offering a unique view, the master features a shower room while a spacious family bath/shower room serve the remaining. All the bathrooms are in superb decorative order.

The first floor consists of two further bedrooms, one of which provides access to a south facing balcony with excellent views and both providing eaves storage.

The property sits in a generous plot overall with gardens to two sides, both featuring outstanding views of the river. Expansive lawns, mature shrubs and bushes an area for home-grown vegetables and fruits, provide focal points all year round.

The main feature naturally being a beautiful 200ft river Thames frontage and 100ft mooring, stretching along a coveted part of the river. Unspoilt views to the rear take the eye over Cock Marsh and to Winter Hill beyond.
