Once home to King George III's surgeon, this historic property in the heart of Windsor is now on the market...

What: Hadleigh House, Windsor, is one of the town's most historic homes. Built by the then mayor of Windsor in 1793, it became home to John O'Reilly, surgeon to King George III who, at this time, was becoming increasingly ill. No doubt it was Mr O'Reilly's intention to be within close proximity of his royal patient.

Now on the market, the property has been owned by the current vendors for nine years. In conjunction with local conservation officers and English Heritage, they have sympathetically restored it to its former glory.

With period features throughout, including a stained glass window, sash windows and shutters, fireplaces, original York stone flooring, decorative moulded cornicing and original servants' bells, this is a property which oozes character and charm.

Where: Sheet Street, Windsor. Apparently King George 1V grew tired of the then owner using the castle driveway and made him alter the house so the entrance appeared on Sheet Street.

Inside: Well proportioned rooms provide excellent formal and informal accommodation of approximately 5,870 sq ft over five floors. There are eight bedrooms, four bathrooms and two shower rooms.

Outside: There's detached garaging with a self-contained apartment above. There is also courtyard parking and pretty walled gardens that back onto the Long Walk.

Price: £3.75 million

Agent: Savills Windsor.
