Millgate appoints Braxtons as selling agent for listed Woolley Hall

Grade II listed Woolley Hall presents a completely unique opportunity for buyers looking to move in the Maidenhead area.  Luxury homes developer Millgate have selected Braxtons of Maidenhead to assist with the sale of this wonderful estate.

The new homes and luxury apartments are set within glorious 33 acres parkland, with the backdrop of the grade II listed Woolley Hall Mansion which dates from the late 18th Century.  This eminent estate is perched on the edge of Littlewick Green; a quintessentially English village complete with church, school, houses set around a central cricket pitch and a pub duly name The Cricketers. The grounds of Woolley Hall have survived largely intact from their original design by Thomas Mawson with innumerable fine specimen trees.

The location enjoys an idyllically secluded sylvan setting, yet Woolley Hall lies within 2.5 miles of Maidenhead town centre which will benefit from Crossrail in 2018.  The new trains are set to provide a world class rail service to Bond Street in 40 minutes and Canary Wharf in under an hour making Woolley hall a perfect choice for commuters.

With excellent road connection also (M4, M40 & M25 motorways), Woolley Hall is going to stand out from the crowd as an opportunity to acquire a beautiful home which will enjoy first class transport links and yet still remains in a pastoral location.

Robin Rixon, Senior Partner of Braxtons comments:

“I anticipate that this fabulous new Millgate development will appeal not only to local purchasers but to those that currently live in London who will recognise an opportunity to enhance their lives in this semi-rural location. The broad range of property that Millgate is creating here, from luxury apartments to detached country homes, mews and town houses is highly appealing and with such diversity the estate will attract a wide range of purchasers including families, investors and downsizers.

“The local property market remains strong in and around Maidenhead. There has been a general shortage of stock and increased interest from London buyers who are keen to capitalise on their property gains in the city. Investors are also out shopping locally attracted by the arrival of Crossrail.”

According to Zoopla data Maidenhead property prices have risen 12.3% from a year ago and 19.34% over the past 5 years.  With Crossrail coming to town and the exquisite riverside setting that this town enjoys, the future is looking bright for property owners in the area.

Jonathan Cranley, Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate said:

“Living in the local area myself I have seen first-hand the boom in property prices in the last few years.  Having the opportunity to develop this wonderful old estate at Woolley Hall is such a splendid opportunity for us.  There is nothing we enjoy more at Millgate than breathing new life into beautiful old houses.  The mansion is to become 6 luxury apartments and the original stable blocks will be converted into 5 houses, which will be unusual and charming at the same time. We have some detached family homes also going onto the site which gives further variety to buyers.”

Woolley Hall has 33 acres of land on this gated development and all the residents will be able to enjoy the spacious grounds including stunning formal gardens designed by the pioneering landscape architect Thomas Mawson which will be restored to their former glory.

Millgate are expecting to release for sale the five family villas known as Lilley, Cottingham, Loveday, Dower and Dunn after the opening of the Show Home in March 2015.
