Within easy of access of Egham town centre, mainline station to Waterloo and Manorcroft School. Egham offers a wealth of restaurants, bars, shops and a sports centre. A suitable location for commuting to London and motorway access to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports due to the convenient proximity to the M25.

The Story
Strolling out from the house to catch the train into London from Egham Station, the owner of the house on Caddy Close remarks on how easy it is to reach everything the family needs from their home. “There is a path from here through to the station, which means it only takes two or three minutes to walk,” he explains. “It then takes about 50 minutes to get into London Waterloo.” With the town centre also just a stroll away, a primary school down the road and good access to motorways and Heathrow Airport, the position of the property could not be better, he insists. “It was the location that drew us to this place when we first came to view it in 2014,” he recalls. “It had access to everything we needed.”
Built in the 1980s, the house itself was also a good size for the couple, who had two young children at the time. “We liked the idea of living in a detached property because of the privacy it offered,” he says. “The house itself was a perfect size for us. It was in good condition; was well insulated and offered plenty of storage space. The back garden was also ideal for us and there was space to park two cars on the driveway at the front.”
The three-bedroom house also offered potential for extension. “In the end, we were very happy with the space the house offered so decided not to extend, but, subject to the relevant planning permissions, this is something someone else could look into.” Other houses of a similar design have extended the kitchen out to the side behind the garage to create a larger kitchen dining room space. Some have also gone out over the garage to give their homes more bedroom and bathroom accommodation on the first floor. “There are possibilities here for someone who wants to make the house larger or to reconfigure the existing accommodation.”
Set back from the close, the property is entered from the front via a lobby with access to a ground-floor cloakroom. This then opens up into a spacious drawing room, where an exposed brick wall makes an eye-catching feature. “We have redecorated since moving in and have kept the house quite neutral in colour, which works well with the brickwork.” The drawing room, which is a great space for entertaining friends and family and hosting children’s parties, flows easily on through into the dining room. Here large glass doors can slide open on to the garden warm days. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen. “This arrangement has always worked well for us. When the children were younger, before they had desks in their bedrooms, they would sit here to do their homework and we were on hand to help them.”
A door from the kitchen opens on to the garden. From here it is possible to access the back of the garage, where the family has created a useful utility area. “We also have a table in here so the children can do their rough painting work without worrying about making a mess,” he explains. All three bedrooms are up on the first floor of the house. The master bedroom, with three built-in cupboards, is to the front. The two other bedrooms also have built-in storage. The family bathroom is to the rear of the house. “The bedrooms have been a good size for us and for our children,” he adds.
The property on Caddy Close has been a home for all seasons. In the autumn and winter, the rooms are cosy and warm. In spring and summer, the family has enjoyed wandering in and out from the garden. “There are also nice places to visit when the weather is fine,” observes the owner. “We are very close to the park at Manorcroft and Runnymede is not far either. These are great places to go walking and cycling. We also like to go to Virginia Water sometimes or to walk round the main part of Windsor Great Park.” They have also enjoyed their proximity to the River Thames, where you can walk beside the water, watching the boats and the wildlife. “This is an excellent place to live if you have children,” he agrees. “Thorpe Park is not far away, there are lots of lakes for water sports and we have a new leisure centre close by.”
To the front of the house on Caddy Close is a small front garden, plus a driveway with space for two cars. This leads to the long garage. To the rear, the property opens up on to an enclosed, lawned garden, with plenty of room for sitting out in the sunshine and for children to play.
