Seller Insight

We decided to move to Ascot for the education and lifestyle it offered our daughters and us. Our daughters attended dance classes at Marist school and we decided we wanted to school them there. We looked closely into the area and it offered everything we were looking for; golf courses, Virginia Water park for walks, shops and restaurants, train station links into London… it offered everything we were looking for so we decided this was the right place for us.

We chose Kilifi because we really wanted a house with a pool; for us to exercise in and for our daughters to enjoy. When we bought it, it was very dated, it even had an avocado bathroom! But we could see how we could transform it.

We lived in it for 5 years before deciding how we wanted to improve it. We spoke to an architect who advised us how to develop the house in the right way – with more bathrooms and a large kitchen/living/dining area central to the redesign. He re-designed the house as it is now, in line with what we needed as a family and what future owners would want, and it’s worked perfectly for us!

As planned, the girls went to the Marist school and they had a wonderful education there, it’s really benefited them as they find their paths in life which is everything we hoped for.

This house has been amazing while the girls have been growing up. Along with having their own big bedrooms and living space, this was the pool party house! We’ve had some great summer BBQs here – we’ve had marquees up, fire pits going… we’ve had over 50 people here at times. With this garden and kitchen, you could host a wedding reception here. We’ve always hosted Christmas, we can seat up to 16 quite easily.

Following our renovations, we now really love our bedroom, it’s peaceful and with all the built-in storage the surfaces can stay clear so it’s very calm in there. I personally love the swimming pool, I use it every day between April and November. My husband loves the sitting room the most, he likes to watch golf so he fitted the projector and full-sized screen. That’s his sanctuary!

Beyond the house, the walks around here are fantastic. We don’t have to drive anywhere; we can walk to Wentworth and Sunningdale Golf Courses right from the door. We can also walk to Sunningdale, Sunninghill and Ascot, including the train stations, that’s been really convenient for us and our daughters.

It’s easy to get to Windsor and Camberley and the theatre in Woking which is only 20 minutes away and has all the West End productions, we go there quite often. We also love Cowarth Park, Bluebells restaurant, Pennyhill Park Hotel and the Fairmont. There are also some great pubs, the Brickmakers Arms in Windlesham is one of our favourites.

Our daughters had very active social lives here, they joined Sunningdale junior golf, the tennis club, they went horse riding in Windlesham and were members of the local amateur dramatics group. As they got older they caught the train to London and Reading, they also liked the Windsor nightlife which is only 15 minutes away.

Now our daughters have grown and left home we’d like to downsize so we’re ready to say goodbye and hand the keys over to the next family. They’ll love it here!
