The wonder of Windsor’s Great Park, famous the world over, heavy with history, and just a short journey from the apartments at 15 Sheet Street, Windsor Great Park is still full of surprises and certainly qualifies as a national treasure.

An enormous castle broods in the distance. Among the ancient oaks, red-deer stags emit the primeval roar that betrays the beginning of the rutting season. As the animal cry fades, it’s superseded by the distant noise of an airliner as it passes overhead away from one of the worlds busiest airports. It’s a scene that summarises the opportunities that are provided by Windsor Great Park, a historic parkland and forest surrounded by urbanisation, a short drive from one of the worlds busiest cities and visited by more than five million people each year.

Part of the wider Crown Estate, an independent commercial property business with responsibility for London’s Regent Street and St James’s, retail parks and the UK seabed – the park is also a business, an environmental haven, a pleasure ground and a royal retreat.

Many of its constituent parts are world famous: the racecourse at Ascot, which becomes the epicentre of the social Season at the royal meeting in June; Guards polo club with its high-goal fixtures, glittering crowds and glorious setting; the Royal Windsor Horse show, which, this year, will be the focus of The Queens 90th birthday celebrations.

The Long Walk

However, there's so much more to this varied estate than the eye catching glamour events, making it the perfect destination to explore, or just relax and enjoy the natural beauty.

The Castle gate entrance to The Long Walk which links Windsor Castle with Snow Hill in Windsor Great Park is just a 5 minute stroll from 15 Sheet Street, making the park easily accessible. From the Castle gate to the foot of the statue of King George II, The Copper Horse, The Long Walk measures 2.64 miles in length, so a run there and back is a great distance for joggers.

Sheet Street

All this could be on your doorstep to enjoy, with the remaining apartments at 15 Sheet Street priced from just £235,000. With the Help To Buy scheme only a 5% deposit is required making the apartments truly affordable.
