Mount House presents a rare opportunity to acquire a country home of wonderful proportions which is finished to the highest standard, situated in a privileged location.
The house combines pleasing period features and attributes with the comforts and luxuries desired by the modern lifestyle, beautifully presented in the stylish and thoughtfully-designed accommodation. This is a property suited to both impressive entertaining and more relaxed family living, with the more formal reception areas to the front and an easy flow through the ground floor towards the open plan family room and on towards the stunning conservatory.
Mount House is presented in a glorious and harmonious palette of mellow hues, contemporary colours, textures and panelling complemented by stone, marble and wood, creating a wonderfully individual and elegant home. There is much of note: The George V American oak panelled drawing room is a magnificent formal reception room with an open fireplace and doors to the gardens; the dining room boasts wonderful views over the gardens, a fireplace and decorative cornicing and has a similarly traditional ambience. Opposite is the welcoming sitting room with a fireplace and a deep bay window.
Moving through, the hallway opens to the kitchen/ breakfast room which has been fitted with a comprehensive range of Mark Wilkinson painted units with chrome handles adding a modern twist. This is open plan to the family room, a wonderfully relaxed space ideal for TV viewing and easy conversation, with French doors to the grounds. There is also an office/studio, a fitted study with a wealth of bespoke storage, a second kitchen and a shower room. This area might be reconfigured to offer separate living space if required.
The rear hallway has a glazed pitched roof and leads to the conservatory with its stone fireplace and three sets of French doors, providing access to the outdoor pool and the surrounding terraces which offer exceptional elevated views over Sunningdale’s Old Course.
To the first floor are three spacious and well appointed en suite bedrooms: The master suite has a deep bay window and stone feature fireplace with steps on either side leading down to the luxurious en suite bathroom and fitted dressing room. The two further bedrooms on this floor have individual en suite facilities and attractive timber balconies commanding superb views over the grounds and the golf course. Situated on the second floor are two further double bedrooms that share a shower room, with one also having a balcony beyond the sash windows. In addition there is a sixth bedroom with en-suite bathroom separately located, with its own access and staircase off the main kitchen.
Approached via electric gates and a gravel driveway leading to the parking area, Mount House is set within secluded and mature landscaped grounds of just under an acre. There has been consideration to design around the wonderful features of the location: the abundance of mature rhododendron bushes, shrubberies and tall trees and of course, the exceptional and far-reaching outlook across the 6th, 5th and 4th holes of the Old Golf Course. There is an expanse of lawn and flagstone terraces which surround the house, with shrub and flower borders and individual ornamental planting to ensure year-round interest. The most impressive and appealing area is to the rear of Mount House: the conservatory opens to the spacious paved terraces which surround the L-shaped swimming pool with different levels providing areas for relaxation and dining or simply enjoying the setting. It is from here that one can fully appreciate the wonderful views over the Old Course that stretch into the distance.
Mount House occupies a wonderful position at the end of a tree-lined lane in a premier area just off Westwood Road, close to the popular village of Windlesham. Despite its discrete location, it is within easy reach of Sunningdale and the national motorway network and is convenient for the attractive countryside of Chobham Common, Windsor Great Park and various woodland areas. Sunningdale, Virginia Water, Ascot,
Windsor and the surrounding towns and villages boast a wide variety of boutiques, bars and traditional public houses. The area also offers fine dining at Coworth Park in Ascot, Pennyhill Park in Bagshot, The Wentworth Club and The Roux’s Waterside Inn and Heston Blumenthal’s restaurants in Bray village.
Some of the country’s best known events are held nearby. Highlights of the local calendar include Royal Ascot, the annual PGA Championship at Wentworth Golf Club and the Cartier International Polo at Smith’s Lawn.
Road connections are very good with Central London around 27 miles away, via the M4 which is accessed from the M25; the M3 is also within easy reach. Heathrow Airport is around 12 miles away, while private jet facilities are available at Farnborough Airport. Sunningdale Station offers a direct South West Trains service to London Waterloo from about 50 minutes.
