Just a stone’s throw away from the centre of Datchet village, Old Bridge House is a substantial family home of extraordinary presence, offering spacious living space set over multiple floors. The property is of Elizabethan origins, with later additions, and has been lovingly restored throughout, with many of the original architectural features having been retained, in keeping with its era. It has been creatively styled in a relaxed and welcoming manner, creating a tranquil environment, perfect for relaxation and entertaining.
The ground floor rooms, which emanate from the spacious and welcoming reception hall, include an elegant drawing room with a bay window overlooking the River Thames and a dual aspect sitting room, also with a pleasing outlook over the river. Undeniably a fine feature of the house is the beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room with its sunny south-facing aspect, travertine tiled floor, full-height windows and high beamed ceiling. The kitchen area is fitted with a bespoke range of units, a sizeable central island, granite worksurfaces, a gas-fired Aga and integrated appliances, whilst the breakfast/dining area boasts a handsome carved oak fireplace which creates a unique focal point. A separate walk in pantry, utility, cloakroom and laundry room are all practical additions to the ground floor, whilst a cellar provides useful storage space.
On the first floor is the elegant master bedroom, with magnificent oak panelled walls, a carved stone fireplace and a bay window with balcony that takes full advantage of the outlook over the Thames. This room also benefits from a modern en suite shower room. Two more bedrooms are located on this floor, one of which has an en suite, whilst the other is served by a large family bathroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a modern free-standing bath. A fourth bedroom can be found on the second floor, served by a further bathroom again with a free standing bath.
Old Bridge House is located just moments from Datchet High Street, with delightful views overlooking the River Thames. To the rear, the very private south-facing garden complements the house perfectly and is beautifully designed with an expanse of lawn bordered by shrubs and trees, an ornamental pond, an impressive yew tree, a yew arbour, rose walkway, a patio area and a parterre garden. A pathway leads from the main house to a detached building housing extensive office space and a separate store room. This building benefits from independent access via a pedestrian gate to the rear and offers the potential for an annexe. Of additional benefit there is planning permission for a timber frame car port, that may be accessed via the pedestrian gate or from The Avenue. App. 13.01917/FUL - Dated 03/09/2013
