An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a property with land in this very popular and accessible location. The property has been utilised by the vendors for private residential and private equestrian use since 2003 and we understand there is lovely walking and riding in the area with Windsor Great Park within short boxing distance.
The property has a purpose built stable block and a manege (currently in need of resurfacing), and pasture paddocks as well as lovely mature lawned gardens and grounds. There may be scope for extension of the property subject to necessary planning permissions being obtained. The vendors have developed a small garden room / annexe to the rear of the double garage which has provided useful ancillary accommodation with an en suite shower room, this might suit someone wishing to utilise this as an office subject to the necessary permissions being obtained.
The property is extremely accessible to Maidenhead, Bracknell, Ascot, Windsor and the M4 which in turn gives excellent access to London and Heathrow airport.
The local village of Fifield has a range of amenities including a public house within easy walking distance, and at Bray the renowned Michelin Star restaurant, The Fat Duck is within about three miles.
A rural lifestyle property yet in easy reach of a wide range of facilities.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
