Martin Grant Homes expands portfolio in Cookham with launch of Russett’s End

News   |   Russetts End

Southeast housebuilder, Martin Grant Homes has launched a boutique development of four detached homes in the village of Cookham, Berkshire. The collection of homes adds to Martin Grant Homes’ legacy in the village, where the housebuilder has previously built Lautree Gardens, a development of nine homes.

Located two miles from the town of Maidenhead, Cookham is one of the southeast’s most affluent villages (voted second most wealthy village in the UK by the Daily Telegraph in 2011), proving consistently popular with London professionals who appreciate the easy commute combined with rural location.

Situated at the end of Lautree Gardens, to the north of the village, Russett’s End comprises two, three bedroom detached and two, four bedroom detached homes. The pretty village homes have been designed to complement the local residential style of period rural property.

Bay windows at the front of each of the houses flood the lounges with light, with the three bedroom homes also including separate family rooms leading off from the entrance halls. The open-plan kitchens stretch across the back of each of the properties, providing space for both cooking and dining and with patio doors leading out onto the rear gardens. All of the kitchens have separate utility rooms, offering the sought-after domestic space required for busy family life. Upstairs, double bedrooms and a family bathroom lead off from the central landings, with the master suites boasting en-suite facilities. All of the houses have private parking spaces, with the four bedroom homes also offering an integrated garage.

Each house is finished to a high standard, with contemporary kitchens benefitting from chrome fittings and stone work tops. The bathrooms are finished with white sanitaryware and ceramic floor tiles. Eco features include solar PV in-line panels, 100% low energy light fittings, a 200 litre water butt and a 330 litre green compost converter bin.

The village of Cookham sits on the banks of the river Thames, with Odney Common to one side and National Trust property Clivedon House on the opposite bank, providing picturesque green spaces. Quaint village pubs and independent local shops are popular with the local community, with buyers attracted here by the rural landscape and quiet pace of life combined with the proximity to central London.

Russett’s End is just a two minute walk from Cookham Rise station, from which trains run to London Paddington in just 38 minutes (changing at Maidenhead); while the A404 connects to the M4 immediately south of Maidenhead, allowing for easy travel into the capital by car. The village proves continually popular with families as there are excellent schools at both primary and secondary level, with Cookham Rise Primary rated “Good” by Ofsted and Harries Preparatory School offering a private option. Nearby Maidenhead offers a number of secondary options and Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School in Marlow also serves Cookham.

Chris Hamilton, Managing Director of Martin Grant Homes, said: “We are delighted to once again be building homes in the popular village of Cookham. The location fits perfectly with Martin Grant Homes’ commitment to building good quality homes in some of England’s most sought-after communities. The success of Lautree Gardens, our previous development in the village, suggests that Russett’s End will prove very popular and we are confident that there will be strong off-plan interest.”
