The private lift lobby opens into an impressive hallway, the accommodation is cleverly arranged with the living rooms to one side and the main bedrooms to the other.

As you might expect, the property is gated with shuttered underground parking and direct lift access into the apartment.
The penthouse really stood out to us as a great solution for so many of our requirements and it definitely had the wow factor. It has a feeling of grandeur, so much space and it’s secure, all at a fraction of the cost of a comparable house. The location is amazing too, we can walk to everything we need in a few minutes and make very good use of everything Ascot has to offer.
Despite being so central it’s quiet here and we’re not overlooked which was really important to us. As lovely as it is to be central to everything we did still want our privacy and we have that here.
It sounds silly but the hallway is one of my favourite things. The lift opens and I walk into this bright, palatial hallway with skylights and so much space. The living room is wonderful too, it’s big but cosy so we find it very relaxing there either for a quiet moment or family nights in.
We use the space here really well. During the day we’re in and out of the kitchen, sitting room, office and up and down Ascot high street while my daughter, being a teenager, spends most of her time in her room! It’s big enough for her to have friends over and do her homework uninterrupted. My wife has a serviced office in Ascot and I’m a regular at the gym, they’re so close by they feel like an extension of our home.
Ascot is of course known for the racecourse and we go to a lot of events there. Beyond that there’s a wonderful community here. When we walk down the high street we wave to the butcher, hairdresser, the staff in Fego who know our coffee order! And that’s just the shops, we have a strong social circle here too, it’s one of the things we’ll really miss.
Our daughter goes to school locally and as a teenager, she has more freedom here than she would elsewhere. She meets her friends for coffee or lunch locally without a worry as she’s only just up the road from home.
The train station is only a 12 minute walk away so we often go to London for the theatre or nights out with friends. Locally we like Val De Cavall tapas restaurant and Bluebells in Ascot. Piccolinos in Virginia Water and Cowarth Park in Sunningdale are family favourites for special occasions.
We travel abroad several times a year, all over the world so having Heathrow close by is brilliant. It’s about a 20 minute journey and only a £25 taxi ride which makes travel so much quicker and easier.
We’re an active family and regularly walk through the racecourse, which is open to the public on non-race days. There’s even a coffee shop in there with a lovely view of the racecourse. Windsor Great Park is great for walking, running and cycling, we use it a lot. Most days my wife and I stop for coffee or lunch at Fego.
When we moved here we planned to stay for decades. However we’ve found a wonderful renovation project so we’ve reluctantly decided to move. We can’t recommend his home and location enough though, it’s quite an indulgent lifestyle really!
Montrose Court is superbly located in the heart of Ascot, just off the High Street. The shops and racecourse are within a minute’s walk so popping to the shops, out for lunch or for a day at the races is as convenient as could be. The lifestyle opportunity this apartment presents is outstanding!
With Sunningdale Golf Club, Guards Polo Club and Ascot Racecourse all close by there are year-round activities on the doorstep. Besides racing, the racecourse hosts ticketed events such as fireworks, Christmas fairs and exhibitions. Cowarth Park has a wonderful members gym and spa along with a prestigious polo academy.
Noteworthy dining and social spots include Coworth Park Hotel, Bluebells and Pazzia. Twenty minutes away is the village of Bray with The Fat Duck, The Waterside Inn and Hinds Head Michelin starred restaurants.
For shopping, Ascot has a range of independent shops, restaurants, cafés and salons along with a Sainsbury’s Local. There are three popular garden centres nearby where you will variously find Bevans, voted the UKs best butcher, a Lakeland concession and other select brands.
Windsor Great Park is nearby, the 4500-acre park stretching to Windsor Castle. Within the park you’ll find Savill Garden, Virginia Water Lake and on the far side, The Long Walk. Windsor Great Park is ideal for beautiful English countryside walks, whatever the season.
