The whimsical Lakeside Tudor house in Maidenhead where Henry VIII’s wife lived nearby is on the market


A Tudor house on a lake with its own island has come up for sale in Berkshire, and in Tudor times Anne of Cleves lived near the property.

A whimsical looking six-bedroom Tudor house is currently on the market in Berkshire.

The islands are in Cookham Dean, Maidenhead, and are on the market for an indicative price of £4.95million.

The house is described as ‘a truly idyllic riverside retreat’ and it sits at the upstream end of a former royal fishery which dates back to the Tudor era.

The property includes a library, a swimming pool, a pool house, a chalet, a greenhouse and even a boathouse. It sits on five acres of land and has its own private island, perfect for anyone who likes their privacy.

The house is in Cookham Dean, south of the River Marlow and just north of Maidenhead.

The interior of the property is just as whimsical as its exterior.

For example, the reception is paneled in oak and has an open fireplace, stained glass, and a wood-panelled ceiling, giving it an air of a Scottish hunting lodge.

Another interesting historical note is the fact that Kenneth Grahame lived in the area when he wrote his famous book “The Wind in the Willows”.
