STABLISHED in 1907, the Abbotsbrook Estate is a small private riverside community half a mile from the shops, schools, restaurants and train station of Bourne End.
A designated Conservation Area on the northern bank of the Thames, this estate comprises about 45 acres and homes within it are highly sought-after.
Willow Hedge is one such property. This superb Edwardian family home offers versatile accommodation of just under 2,000 sq/ft, making it ideal for families. It retains many period features including original leaded windows,
picture rails and parquet flooring.
One particularly impressive feature is its garden which encircles the main house on three sides. Laid mainly to lawn, the garden is well stocked with mature shrubs and trees and there is a large raised decked area off the kitchen, perfect for al fresco dining.A further privately owned garden with frontage onto one of the tributaries of the Thames (with direct dinghy/canoe access onto the Thames) provides a lovely area for relaxing or entertaining.
Chris Moorhouse, head of Savills Beaconsfield sales, said:“This is a great opportunity for someone to buy into a truly remarkable private estate, which instils a feeling of wonderful calm and remoteness from modern day life.The reality, however, is that this is a very accessible property – its proximity to the amenities of Bourne End and to Maidenhead (from which there is a regular direct main line service into London Paddington) makes this ideal for those needing to commute.”
Willow Hedge has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite), 3 reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, gardens, courtyard, driveway, garage.
