Vendors Comment - We fell in love with its homely feel, quirkiness, and the swimming pool. The previous owner – a film stunt double – piqued our interest. “When we came to view the house, there were pictures on the walls of the owner with huge stars in their day such as Roger Moore. The lady was a stunt double in Bond movies and the Hart to Hart series.
With an engineering background, I took on the maintenance work, calling in specialists when needed as owning a Grade II listed building is not like a normal property.
We knew there was a hidden Inglenook fireplace, so we removed the woodchip wallpaper to uncover the fireplace beam ends. The original bread oven had gone, and the brickwork needed some attention. So, we brought in a specialist builder to renovate the fireplace using the old bricks and a few reclaimed ones. He even copied the original style of marking in the lime mortar.
We hope the next custodians will cherish it and have fun here. We certainly have. This house has a lot of love to give
Agents Comment - I have worked in the industry for the best part of two decades and this property has a feel about it like no other. Like anyone else who has grown up in the local area will likely to be very familiar with this stunning property. For me the chance to purchase a property like this is becoming more and more rare in the country. The property has so much to offer the next owner, the inglenook fireplace, the originally features and the house even has its own speciality paint name 'Lynwood Green'.
For the families out there looking for a sizeable property this house also ticks that box. Four or five bedrooms, up to five usable reception areas and the large garden which wraps around the property from the rear. On top of this the heat swimming pool in the garden is stunning and meaning the summers will feel like just like a holiday for all the family.
Area Comment - Lynwood Cottage is in an ideal location because it is on the doorstep of The Lexicon, just round the corner from the local Village walks of Warfield and central to local commuter roads. Goughs Lane is seen and known as one of the most premier roads in the local area. The Lexicon Shopping centre has quickly become the heart beat of the local area with a selection of popular restaurants and well known shops. The property is also just over a miles walk from the Bracknell Train Station (On the Reading - Waterloo Line).
