30 Nov Carnarton
Carnanton was completed in 2009 for the current owners by prestigious house builder, Applegate Homes, a company renowned for their build quality and finish at the top end of the luxury housing market. The property has been immaculately maintained and is now presented for sale in beautiful condition throughout.
As you enter the property, a grand staircase leads up to the first floor and galleried landing. The eye is also drawn through the dining room into the garden and beyond. The grand hall is a spectacular feature of the property. The principal receptions face the rear of the property as well as the enormous kitchen/breakfast/garden room, a superb area for the contemporary family lifestyle and informal entertaining. The family room and the library are to the front of the house, bright double aspect rooms. On the first floor there is a very large master bedroom suite luxuriously equipped with mirror fronted wardrobes in the dressing room and an opulent bathroom suite. Three further suites are on the first floor with three further adaptable rooms on the second floor depending on the owners requirements. In the lower ground floor is the main laundry room and a useful luggage room as well as the enormous garage, a car enthusiasts dream approached via a ramp down drive and an electric up and over door.
Carnanton has a tremendous feeling of space and light, large windows being a theme throughout the house, a very liveable home and at the same time, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale or informally in the kitchen area.
The property is approached through wrought iron electronically operated gates on brick piers over a brick cobbled driveway providing parking for several cars. A discreet ramp leads down to the secure lower ground floor parking with access straight into the house, an intriguing feature or the car enthusiast. The house sits at the very end of Woodlands Road East on high ground someway above its own gates from the road. Across the rear of the property is an extensive paved patio area with steps leading up onto the lawns which graduate into a lightly wooded parkland area further down the garden. The whole is well enclosed by large laurel hedging and mature trees affording a great deal of privacy from the adjoining properties. The plot amounts to approximately 1.5 acres in all.
Carnanton is superbly situated within the Wentworth Estate on high ground at the top of Woodlands Road East, a highly prestigious road located between the picturesque shopping parades of Virginia Water and the world renowned Wentworth Golf Club. Virginia Water shops are located just half a mile away as well as the train station with a fast service of trains to London Waterloo in 42 minutes. For the weekly household shop there is an excellent Waitrose in Sunningdale and for more extensive shopping facilities, the towns of Windsor, Guildford and Kingston are all close at hand. Junction 13 of the M25 is just 3.5 miles away giving access to London, Heathrow and the motorway network. Other than the world renowned Wentworth Club, country clubs abound in the area such as Foxhills, Queenwood, Sunningdale and the Royal Berkshire. Delightful walks can be enjoyed around Virginia Water Lake which leads up to the Polo at Smiths Lawn, adjacent to Savill Gardens and Windsor Great Park beyond for riding. The area is also very well catered for by a wide choice of private prep schools, as well as two international schools, ACS in Egham and TASIS in Thorpe.
