3 Bedroom semi-detached house Wells Lane, ASCOT £825,000

NO ONWARD CHAIN. A charming Three Bedroom semi detached cottage overlooking trees and woodlands located in a tranquil setting down a quiet leafy lane in a picturesque backwater of Ascot.

Ascot life has also suited the owners, who have relished being able to walk to shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés. “We can walk into Ascot or Sunninghill in 10 to 15 minutes, taking routes along bridleways and through woodland if we choose,” he observes. “I can walk to the station to catch a train into London or can book a taxi to Heathrow and be at the airport in 20 minutes. Living here is so convenient and yet there is so much greenery and you can go walking in the woods and follow nature trails by stepping out from our own front door. The combination of the perfect setting and the unique property has made this cottage a truly special place to live and is in a great location.

The Story
It was the quiet beauty of Nut Tree Cottage that first appealed to the current owner. Moving from London, he was seeking tranquility, privacy and a sense of almost semi-rural living – and the three-bedroom, semi-detached home offered all of that. “I was keen to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and this had a certain charm about it,” he recalls. “I remember how much I loved the beautiful, sloping garden and all the greenery around the house and the area in general. It was exactly what I was looking for at the time”.
Modern Living
Dating back to the 1860s, the property still has some original features, from its bay and sash windows to its pretty porch. The owner has renovated it throughout, upgrading it significantly to give it a chic, contemporary interior to suit his own style of living. “I renovated the whole house, replacing the bathrooms and the kitchen,” he explains. “I had the lovely, oak parquet floor laid, fitted classy coving, skirtings and doors, had new garden lighting installed, and every room painted white to further enhance the natural brightness of the house .” The pristine, neutral colour scheme also works well as a backdrop for his carefully chosen pieces of furniture and artwork. “This was a style that I picked up from my time in Scandinavia – it enables you to have flexibility and bring in different colours as you choose,” he adds.
Streaming Sunshine
The double-fronted house enjoys glorious sunshine throughout the day. Natural light streams into both the kitchen and the drawing room via the bay windows. The exquisite kitchen is to the left of the entrance hall and front door. This is a dual aspect space, with French windows to the rear opening on to a private courtyard and garden. Featuring herringbone flooring, and with a matt white finish and white work surfaces, this is cleverly designed and features a range of high specification appliances..
Summer & Winter
To the other side of the hall, the drawing room is a substantial, double-sized living space, with ample room for both comfortable seating and a dining table and chairs. Ideal for entertaining, it features a wood-burning stove, which creates a cosy ambience during the autumn and winter months. From here, there is access to a cloakroom and rear lobby. An original stained-glass door opens on to the rear courtyard area, where it is pleasant to enjoy a cup of coffee on fine days. “This is a lovely private space, with a barbecue built into the wall,” he explains. “It is a real suntrapand along with the attractive brickwork, the raised flowerbed area adds even more colour.”
Leafy Views
All three bedrooms are on the first floor of Nut Tree Cottage. The master bedroom benefits from a chic en-suite shower room, while the other two rooms share the beautiful, and also newly-fitted, family shower room. “I work from home and use the third bedroom as a study,” he says. “I chose this one because it has such a splendid view out to the front and over the garden. This makes it a wonderful place to work.” On summer days, the owner spends much of his time out in the fresh air. He has landscaped and maintained the garden, with its colourful, interesting trees and shrubs immaculately. “In springtime this all bursts into life,” he explains. “It is enchanting to sit out on the terrace, with a glass of wine, looking out over it all on summer evenings. Autumn comes with a spectacular beauty of its own.”
Exceptional Location
He admits he will miss his beautiful garden most when he leaves Nut Tree Cottage. “This really is an idyllic location,” he agrees. “It is such a peaceful place to live and yet it takes just five minutes to the train station and from there you can travel straight into London. For anyone who travels internationally, it is also ideal. I can be at Heathrow Airport in 20 to 30 minutes.” It is also easy to reach the smaller shops of Ascot and Sunningdale, while Bracknell, with its Lexicon Centre, offers high street names. Nut Tree Cottage is now ready for new owners to move straight into and enjoy. “Everything has been completed and it is a comfortable and easy home to live in,” he adds. “I will miss seeing the garden re-awakening in the spring most of all and the blaze of colour it also brings in the autumn.”
To the front of Nut Tree Cottage is a useful garage and car port. Most the garden is then to the front of the house, where a raised terrace looks out over the lawn and a selection of beautiful, established shrubs and other plants. To the rear, there is a courtyard garden, with space for outside dining and a barbecue set into the wall. Part of this area also features artificial grass.
