DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A detached chalet in a quite exceptional location and particularly appealing for those with an interest in aviation. The property has been in the same ownership for very many years and now lends itself to modernisation and improvement. It was however thoughtfully designed, including a roof terrace overlooking the airfield. West Wind is now considered most suited to considerable expenditure or redevelopment – the area would support a significantly more valuable house, with several sales around £1 million and a property with the same postcode close to £2 million.
The property is well placed for the commuter and is within a few minutes’ drive of J9A of the A404M which immediately leads to J8/9 of the M4. Historic nearby villages include Holyport and Bray, Waltham St Lawrence and Shurlock Row. Maidenhead Town Centre is a short drive with a good range of schools and, importantly for the commuter, a railway station not only providing fast services to London (Paddington) but also shortly the new Crossrail service.
To summarise, a property for improvement/building plot with good air, road and rail links.
