4 Bedroom detached house Macdonald Road, Lightwater £1,100,000

A beautifully presented opportunity to acquire a totally refurbished family home.


Pulling the bi-folding doors back on a summer's morning and stepping out on to the terrace for breakfast, the new owners of the house on Macdonald Road will savour everything about their new home. The attractive house has been transformed by current owner Louis and is now ready and waiting to be enjoyed to the full. "It is now a fantastic family home," he explains. "I have extended it to create superb accommodation and have upgraded it to give it a stylish, contemporary finish. At every stage I have considered how I would like to live in it myself - and every room, and each fixture and fitting, has been given great attention to detail."


Set on sought-after Macdonald Road in Lightwater, the property originally dated back to the 1950s but now has a striking modern kerb appeal. Sitting comfortably within its plot, and with ample off-street parking to the front, it incorporates everything a 21st century family requires. "As soon as I saw it, I knew it had huge potential," he recalls. "It was in an excellent village location, within the catchment area for good schools, and I realised the house itself had great scope for additional accommodation and some fabulous contemporary features. Above all else, I wanted it to be a good family home and a perfect place for entertaining. I think that has certainly been achieved with everything I have undertaken here."


The property is entered via an attractive porch and then the light reception hall, leading into a study, utility room and cloakroom, as well as the main living space. This is accessed via the central dining and family room, which has bi-folding doors at one end. "This room can be arranged with a dining table and chairs, as well as comfortable seating. It is ideal for anyone who enjoys indoor-outdoor living as it flows seamlessly out on to the terrace and garden." Open-plan to the kitchen, where natural light floods in through a roof lantern, this will be the perfect place for family meals and dinner parties. "The kitchen itself is beautifully finished, with white high-gloss units and quartz work surfaces," he adds. "There is generous space for food storage and preparation, with a central island, and all the appliances are Neff. There is also under-floor heating."


To the other side of the dining and family room is the capacious drawing room. This features a larger roof lantern and more bi-folding doors, allowing much of the entire back of the house to be open to the garden on warm days. "This would be perfect for anyone who enjoys hosting parties," says Louis. "There is plenty of space for guests to wander in and out, as well and to enjoy all the ground floor rooms. I have also installed a surround sound system downstairs to ensure there is always music." With a thick, grey pile carpet in the drawing room, the space will also provide an inviting ambience for family nights in and quiet relaxation in front of a good film.


Three of the bedrooms at the house can be found on the first floor, together with a large family bathroom, arranged with a bath and shower. The sumptuous master suite is also at this level, comprising a very generous bedroom, beautifully fitted out dressing room and luxurious bathroom with free-standing bath. "All the bathrooms here have Villeroy & Boch fittings, as well as under-floor heating," Louis explains. "Another very large bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room can be found on the second floor." This could be ideal for a teenager or perhaps an au pair. "This house offers very flexible accommodation," he suggests. "In addition to all the space in the main house, there is an outbuilding, which would make a great studio or office."

Setting the Scene
The house is set back from the road, with a good-sized drive offering plenty of off-road parking. There is also an integral double garage and access to the rear. At the back of the property, the house opens on to a large terrace and lawned garden, complete with timber studio.
From Lightwater it is easy to reach bustling Ascot, Bracknell, Wokingham and Farnborough. It is also just a short distance to the M3, connecting with the M25, and it is simple to travel into London by road or rail, as well as to reach airports.
The area also benefits from proximity to Lightwater Country Park, which is situated on the edge of Lightwater Village and extends to 59 hectares. This includes areas of heathland to explore, as well as ponds, woodland and meadows. "Lightwater is a great place to live," Louis admits. "It is ideal for families in particular as it is easy to travel from here and there is so much to do in the area."
