The area is renowned for its education with a wide range of schooling, both state and independent schools.
White Place Farm is an attractive riverside residential farm comprising a 5 bedroom farmhouse, a Grade II Listed Dovecote, four cottages, an extensive range of farm buildings, equestrian facilities, pasture and woodland, set in about 165.29 acres (66.89 hectares).
Whilst not formally designated, the property is thought to have been the site of at least two historic battles. References are made to a battle between the Saxons and the Danes, and to a Civil War battle between Royalist Forces and Cromwell’s Army.
White Place Farm is offered for sale, by private treaty, as a whole or in three lots:
– Lot 1: 5 bedroom farmhouse, Grade II Listed Dovecote and farm buildings, set in about 113.21 acres (45.81 hectares);
– Lot 2: Land south of White Place Farm extending to about
51.39 acres (20.8 hectares);
– Lot 3: No’s1-4 Gate Houses set in about 0.69 acres (0.28 hectares).
Situated at the end of a tree lined drive and enjoying views over the farm towards the River Thames, the 5 bedroom farmhouse was once the farm manager’s house for the “Model Farm” and extends to approximately 2,541 sq.ft. The house offers good family living space that is now in need of some modernisation.
Ground floor: conservatory, kitchen / breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, study, utility and WC.
First floor: Five bedrooms (two with en suite shower rooms), store room and a family bathroom with separate WC.
NOS. 1-4 Gate Houses
A striking Tudor-style Gate House with a central archway originally provided access to the Clivedon Estate’s “Model Farm” and now comprises four cottages. A mixture of two and three bedroom cottages, one is vacant, two are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies and one on a Rent Act 1977 Tenancy.
The property extends to about 165.29 acres (66.89 hectares), the majority of which is down to permanent pasture.
Land use is currently split as follows:
Pasture: 140.98 acres (57.05 hectares)
Wood/scrub: 7.12 acres (2.88 hectares)
House, buildings, pond, tracks and miscellaneous areas: 17.19 (6.96 Hectares)
Some areas of the property are low-lying and some areas are prone to flooding from the River Thames during winter months. This brings a host of wintering wildfowl and waders to the property. Together with the woodland on the farm, this helps provide sporting and conservation opportunities.
There are various areas of woodland comprising mainly deciduous species including Oak, Sycamore and Beech.
Most fields are fenced for cattle and mains water is available in some fields.
The farm also benefits from rights of common grazing within the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor. Further details available from Savills. Please contact Philip Hoare, Laurence May or Louise Harrison to discuss further or arrange a viewing.
