Early viewing recommended
north town moor nature reserve:
The Green Way winds it's way from Cookham through to North Town Moor. The Moor offers a haven for bumble bees, dragon flies, butterflies and damselflies in the verges that are managed for conservation. The orchard with it's variety of fruit trees attracts many bird species, and the managed duck pond next to the free car park is a great place to feed the ducks.
The northern part of North Town Moor is regularly cut for amenity purposes, providing a great space for a run or to walk a dog.
Free parking is available at North Town Moor car park.
North Town Moor is one mile south of Wildbrook Common and two miles south of Cookham Moor.
The nearest railway station is Furze Platt which is 0.5 miles west of North Town Moor.
Originally there were stables and an equestrian leather shop to the rear of the property. Horses entered via the large side gate and grazed, tethered on the moor opposite. In the 80's the stables were replaced by a large council licenced tropical fish and Koi shop, with public access, and sold dry goods and fish. A fish enthusiasts' club of approximately 20 people would meet once a week, parking in the free car park opposite the property.
The property offered bed and breakfast and later a child minding service, licenced by the council and Ofsted registered. The property is very private and secure with high gates, the original 8' high brick wall to the orchard, three independent CCTV security systems and three independent alarm systems.
The property has a history of enterprise and is registered with the council as mixed commercial and residential. Council permission was acquired to park commercial emergency vehicles on the premises both at the side of the house and on the land/car park to the side of the premises. The vehicles were large ambulances and a fire engine, providing a 24 hour service.
The property provides the modern entrepreneur with free parking, security, privacy, garden studio and the outbuildings offering numerous possibilities i.e. Shop, hairdressers, dog grooming and cattery etc.
The house and land/car park to the side could be developed together or separately. The property enjoys a south west facing rear garden that affords sunshine all day, with free parking access to the beautiful National Trust moor with it's large duck pond.
There are equestrian facilities in close proximity, or a short drive. This property, positioned opposite the picturesque country moor with a licenced tennis club sports bar at one end, ticks many boxes and offers a great opportunity to provide a very flexible home and business combination in a fabulous one-off location.
Maidenhead town centre is currently undergoing a fabulous multi million pound rejuvenation programme.
