Built in 2007 by the well regarded Applegate Homes Bracken House is an imposing and spacious home. It is a particularly fine example of a luxury, contemporary residence with stylish interiors on the world renowned Wentworth Estate. The house has been designed to exacting standards and has an enviable balance of formal entertaining and flexible family accommodation. Bracken House is approached through a set of wrought iron gates and onto a sweeping gravel drive, with mature landscaped borders providing privacy. The magnificent reception hall provides an exciting start to the house and is beautifully framed by the galleried landing on the first floor. The ground floor has a range of reception rooms suitable for formal entertaining, family life and business. The drawing room is a particularly fine room with dual aspects creating a light and serene feel. The dining room can be accessed off the drawing room as well as the reception hall and
combined make for wonderful entertaining space. The kitchen / breakfast room is the hub for day to day family life. The kitchen is truly unique with two circular islands and a wall mounted run of cabinets providing ample preparation and storage space. The breakfast area is perfect for day to day use and importantly provides sight of the swimming pool area located to the southern side of the house. The family room has a warm feel and is ideal for less formal use and relaxation. Located down a hallway is the elegant study, with triple aspect windows creating plenty of natural light. It is a superb environment for conducting business or for personal pursuits. To the other side of the house you find the elegant gym, with a sauna and shower located nearby, access into the triple bay garage and to the staff apartment.
Accessed via a magnificent sweeping staircase, the first floor is where the majority of bedroom accommodation is found, all set around the hugely impressive galleried landing which provides wonderful views of the stunning central light feature and reception hall. The master bedroom suite is formed of three generous rooms which includes a dressing room and en suite bathroom with separate shower providing a real sense of luxury and sanctuary, in addition there is a balcony overlooking the formal lawns. The four further bedrooms to the first floor all benefit from their own en suite bath or shower rooms and have views of the beautiful gardens. The sixth bedroom is on the second floor and shares use of a family bathroom with the games room/bedroom 7. The games room is of a size that allows it to be used for a range of different uses depending on one's needs. The house has a utility room located off the kitchen and two guest cloakrooms on the ground floor and a self-contained one bedroom staff apartment on the first floor.
Bracken House is set within 1.4 acres of formal gardens. There are three distinct areas to the gardens which allows for a range of uses. The main formal lawns are surrounded by mature borders, which creates wonderful entertaining space and beautiful views from each of the principal reception rooms. The swimming pool area is located to the south of the house and is perfect for families. To the north of the house are a series of terraced lawns, which given their height benefit from plenty of light and provide space away from the main house.Situation
Despite its deceptive rural setting, Wentworth is perfectly positioned for easy access to London and the motorway network via the M25 (J11/13) which links with the M3 (J3) and the M4 for journeys to Heathrow Airport and central London. The nearby village centres of Virginia Water, Chobham and Sunningdale cater for day-to-day shopping requirements, while the towns of Ascot and Windsor provide more comprehensive recreational and shopping amenities. The area is well known for boutiques, bars and traditional country public houses and boasts some of the finest restaurants, with Coworth Park in Ascot, as well as the Michelin starred The Waterside Inn and The Fat Duck restaurants in Bray.
Leisure opportunities abound and The Wentworth Club boasts tennis courts and swimming pools as well as exceptional golfing. In addition there is horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, polo at Coworth Park, the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club and Guards Polo Club and boating on the River Thames at Windsor and Henley. The picturesque Virginia Water Lake and The Savill Garden are both nearby, with horse riding at Chobham Common and Windsor Great Park. The area is fortunate to have some of the best independent schools including Wellington College, Eton College, Papplewick, Heathfield School, St George’s and St Mary’s Ascot. For international schooling, TASIS (The American School) and ACS (American Community School) are both within a few miles in Thorpe and Egham.Fixtures and Fittings
