5 Bedroom Mid-Terraced House Under Offer

Situated in an exclusive gated development is this superb five bedroom, three bathroom modern town house, arranged over three floors provides the ultimate in home comforts set in ten acres of grounds adjoining Windsor Great Park.

Baron Sir John Henry Schroder originally purchased The Dell Estate during the 1880’s, extending his mansion and lavishing a great deal of care and attention to his gardens. Many fruits and plants were grown in large greenhouses, including the orchids that later became synonymous with The Dell. In the late 1880’s, James Pulham & Son was commissioned to design and build a Rock and Water Garden. This resulted in the creation of two waterfalls and ponds that were linked with an artificial stream meandering alongside a ‘Pulhamite’ rock-lined path. A large castellated water tower was also built to store water that was pumped up from the neighbouring valley.

For ease of maintenance, the ponds have now been contained and the stream has been converted to a dry river bed. The unusual and rare rocks are still in place as are the waterfalls, which are now activated by remote controlled pumps. Although the greenhouses are no longer there, the impressive water tower remains, though it is no longer functional. In 1987, the ‘Schroder’ mansion was demolished and nine exclusive mews style townhouses were built in its place.

The Dell is a small community of like-minded people and is located in a gated, secluded position on the village’s premier road. It is only 100 metres or so from the Bishopsgate entrance of Windsor Great Park and its northern boundary adjoins the famous Deer Park. The grounds extend to approximately 10 acres and, in addition to the Water Gardens, have well-manicured lawns, numerous specimen rhododendrons and trees together with other shrubs and plants, all for the quiet enjoyment and exclusive use of its residents.
