HouseSimple is pleased to present this property in Bourne End.


Oaklands is set down a leafy no through lane within the Abbotsbrook private estate, a protected Conservation Area in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire. The house is set back, the driveway provides parking and the gardens sourround the house on all sides, offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion as well as the opportunity to extend. (Local Authority planning permission has previously been granted for a two story extension). Entrance hall, cloakroom, lounge with red brick fireplace and double bay windows overlooking the front garden, dining room, kitchen, large conservatory, four bedrooms and family bathroom. The house is constructed of rendered brick under a tile roof. The garage is detached and has mains power, a brick and tiled roof outbuilding which also has mains power is situated at the far end of the back garden and has been used as an office/summerhouse. There is a separate parcel of land some 150 metres north of the house with a frontage on The Avenue of approximately 11 metres which affords the owner direct access to the stream. Oaklands has been owned by the same family for over forty years.

The Abbotsbrook, with its private roads and watercourses, dates from 1907. The residents have the privilege of being able to navigate small boats on the stream through the estate which is close to the Thames and a short walk to Bourne End Marina and the Upper Thames Sailing Club.

It is a level walk (some 200 metres) to the centre of the riverside village of Bourne End which has a selection of shops, cafes and services. There is local schooling at both primary and secondary level within walking distance and High Wycombe, Maindenhead and Marlow offer private schooling and well regarded grammar schools.

For the commuter, the M4 and M40 Motorways are easily accessible. Bourne End railway station is only 0.25 miles away and connects via Maidenhead to London Paddington (approx 40 mins.). Cross Rail services in 2019 at Maidenhead will greatly enhance commuting to the West End and the City of London. The villages of Cookham and Marlow are a pleasant walk along the Thames towpath.

Properties on the Abbotsbrook are much sort after and early viewing is therefore advised.
