A superb and unique opportunity to create your own grand design in  a tucked away location a short distance from the beautiful eastern banks of the River Thames.

In October 2019, the vendors obtained Outline Planning Permission for the erection of a new dwelling following demolition of the existing dwelling. South Bucks District Council Application No PL/19/0852/OA – copy available from South Bucks Website or from the vendors agents. It is noted that in Condition No 6 the footprint of the proposed dwelling shall not exceed the existing footprint of 184m² as listed in section 2.2. We are informed there may be flexibility in the positioning of the new dwelling within the plot subject to detailed planning application approval.

Taplow sits on the left / eastern bank of the River Thames facing Maidenhead in the neighbouring county of Berkshire. It has a local football club, village cricket team and rugby team and Taplow village offers a range of local amenities and facilities. The property is conveniently situated for Eton Collage and local grammar schools. Taplow Station provides rail services to London / Paddington, Reading and Oxford. Heathrow Airport is approx. 15 miles.

Sporting facilities in the area include Wentworth and Sunningdale Golf Courses, there is lovely walking and riding in the surrounding countryside and extensive boating and leisure pursuits on the nearby River Thames. There are a number of gymnasiums, multiscreen cinema and an indoor shopping precinct within easy access. Nearby Bray village also has the renowned Fat Duck Michelin Star Restaurant, The Waterside Inn, Maidenhead and Bray Cricket Club and Bray Lake. 

The property has been utilised by the vendors for private residential and private equestrian use over their long tenure. We understand River Road is a bridleway which then links to a network of bridleways in the area providing lovely outriding.

THE CURRENT RESIDENCE

A detached five bedroom house believed to date from the 1960’s, set in beautiful mature grounds with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, etc. with some beautiful rural views at the rear over neighbouring farmland.

The property has been comfortably lived in by the present owners since the mid 1970’s, although it is fair to say would benefit from updating and modernisation. It currently has mains gas central heating and partial double glazing.

Please refer to the floorplan for room layout and approx. room sizes.

To the eastern boundary there is a 

Purpose Built Stable Yard with Two Loose Boxes each approx. 11’2 x 10’ (about 3.3m x 3m) plus a Tack Room c.10’6 x 7’6 (about 3.2m x 2.3m) and Hay Barn c. 25’ x 12’ (about 7.6m x 3.6m) with Muck Heap to rear.
