Clarence Cottage is a Grade II Listed detached house, believed to have been built in the late 1780’s as a coach house to the main property, a country house probably owned by a London gent for his country retreat. It is tucked away in a secluded position off the top end of Middle Hill, one of the village’s premier roads. It is approached via a rhododendron fringed shingled driveway that leads to the two properties. The country house is now luxury apartments, and Clarence Cottage has its own off road parking and a detached ‘coach house/garage’ building which has recently had planning permission passed to create a first floor studio/annexe.
The current owners have lived here for the last 33 years and it has proved to be a much-loved family home, where 3 children have grown up who have now flown the nest. It has been well maintained and refurbished over the years to include beautiful sash windows, many with natural wood reveals and cills, stripped wood doors and a recently re-tiled roof with its own original weather vane! Clarence Cottage is a much-loved house that oozes character yet retains a lovely homely feel.
The kitchen/dining/family room is housed in the former coach section and has a gas fired Aga, high ceiling and exposed brick walls which still display some of the historic wheel scrapes. In addition there is a good size entrance hall, large sitting room, study, cloakroom and utility room on the ground floor and large landing, 4 double bedrooms, en suite & family bathrooms on the first floor. Externally there is a large cobbled courtyard between the house and coach house and a gorgeous walled garden with lawn and fruit trees.
It is situated close to the heart of the highly desirable village of Englefield Green that is located in a prominent position on the edge of Windsor Great Park. Englefield Green has become one of the most sought after locations outside of London and is synonymous with luxury housing. Although in close proximity to the capital Englefield Green maintains a rural feel with many surrounding parks and open spaces that offer picturesque walks and cycle rides.
The village benefits from excellent transport links to London and the south east with easy access to the M25, M4 and M3. London Heathrow Airport (10 mins) and London Gatwick (30mins) are also within easy reach. Egham train station provides regular service to London Waterloo (35/40 mins).
Schools around the area include Bishopsgate, Eton College, Wellington College, TASIS and The ACS international School as well as numerous other quality establishments. The area really is blessed with choice in this department.
The local area benefits from many international sporting venues including Guards Polo Club, Ascot Racecourse and Wentworth Golf Club.
