Designed with immense care and attention to detail, the accommodation offers flexibility with many of the rooms positioned to take full advantage of the pleasing outlook over the gardens and countryside beyond.
The ground floor provides exceptional living and entertaining space, with the principal reception rooms radiating from the reception hall, and enjoying direct access to the gardens and swimming pool area. The hall features a polished porcelain tiled floor that extends through to the kitchen, whilst the reception rooms and utility room have contrasting oak floors. The elegant drawing room, with its Cotswold stone fireplace and inset gas fire, benefits from double doors opening out to the rear terrace, as does the adjacent play/family room.
Undoubtedly a fine feature of the house is the multi-functional kitchen/breakfast/family room, with an entire wall of bi-folding doors that open out to the terrace and draw the line of vision to the wonderful view over countryside. The kitchen area is comprehensively fitted with a bespoke range of units, a large central island with an integral circular breakfast bar and inset ceramic hob, granite worksurfaces, integrated Miele appliances including twin ovens, a combination microwave oven, steamer, coffee machine, dishwasher, freezer, refrigerator, and a Liebherr wine cooler.

Situated on the first floor is a sumptuous master suite comprising a spacious bedroom with a balcony taking advantage of the far-reaching views, 'his and hers' dressing rooms and a luxurious modern bathroom with 'his and hers' wash basins, a free-standing bath and a separate walk-in shower. There are three further en suite bedrooms on this floor, whilst the second floor is arranged to provide two adjacent bedrooms and an en suite bathroom. This level is adaptable and could be utilised as guest or au pair accommodation.
Cookham Dean is a highly regarded village with good local schools, a church and a selection of nearby public houses and restaurants, including the community owned Jolly Farmer public house.
The village is conveniently located for the A404, the M40 (J4) and the M4 (J7 and J8/9) which provides access to Heathrow, the West Country and the M25; rail communications are equally as good with services from nearby Cookham Rise to London Paddington (via the branch line to Maidenhead) and from High Wycombe to London Marylebone. Maidenhead is due to benefit from Crossrail, the new high-speed service.
The pretty riverside town of Marlow is within easy reach and offers an excellent range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities whilst shopping for day-to-day needs are available in Cookham.
The area is renowned for its educational opportunities with a wide range of schooling, both in the state and independent sectors.
Winterdown is approached via double, electrically operated gates that open onto a shingle driveway and parking area, to the front of the house and double garage. Meticulously maintained flower beds contain a variety of clipped shrubs, to provide 'year round' visual interest and fencing/mature hedging ensures a high level of privacy. The rear garden is principally laid to lawn and features a spacious paved terrace and swimming pool area, edged with clipped box hedging. The garden is enclosed by clipped hedging, designed so as not to obstruct the wonderful distant views.
It is worth noting that there is a public access river garden nearby, owned by Cookham Parish
Council, perfect for relaxation by the river.
