WATERSIDE - This outstanding glass and wood house, occupies an elevated, beautifully landscaped position, directly overlooking the Thames at Marlow. Built to a bespoke design by the present owners who,
inspired by the natural setting, have created a contemporary design that nestles within its
nearly 2 acre plot. This modern functional house, was built under the Tradis system, providing a
high level of insulation. The layout has been thoughtfully planned to allow the house intimate and open spaces, as well as having as much
space and light as possible. Floor to ceiling glass has been used throughout with three double doors from the main 42’ reception room, to the front
gardens and river terrace. The double height atrium floods the reception hall with light and
highlights the timber and glass staircase. The kitchen with its central island and Aga has been
built around entertaining and is open into the family room, with double doors onto the front
gardens. From here the impactful 42’ main reception space is located, created to take full
advantage of the river views, with its wonderful river terrace that wraps around the house. To the other side of the ground floor are a private study, separate utility room and cloakroom,
completing this floor. Climbing the glass space of the atrium to the first floor, the master suite has been cleverly designed so that a double aspect view of the river is enjoyed from every angle of the bedroom. Double doors open onto a large private balcony and a modern en suite bathroom
with bath and large walk-in shower completes the suite. Four further bedrooms enjoy the modern family bathroom. Being placed forward of the site of the original house, this has afforded a generous river terrace, beneath which lies the garage and
39’ storage room. The detached boathouse has been built to the same design and offers a large
studio room, above the boat space below. Double doors open onto a glass balcony, directly above

The house is situated in a highly desirable location to the south of Marlow, less than 1 mile level walk, from the famous Compleat Angler and Marlow Bridge. Marlow offers extensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities, including Higginson Park beside Marlow Bridge. The M4 (J8/9) is within 6 miles and the M40 (J4) 5 miles away, both provide access to Heathrow and the
national motorway network. Sporting facilities include golf with a number of local courses including Temple, Harleyford and Henley.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property, being wholly designed to enhance and support the siting of the house, within this nearly two acre plot. The present owners’ vision was to create gardens that supported the wildlife of the land, against the backdrop of Winter Hill and the Thames. This vision was brought to life by Land Art landscape designers, previous exhibitors at the Chelsea Flower Show. Their informal planting
scheme seamlessly transitions into the surrounding natural environment of woodland walk, waterfall and rockery to the large wildlife garden, merging into the woodland behind. Large areas of lawn and inviting foot paths, embrace the whole setting and
offers stunning natural landscape views from every angle within the house. The height of the flat ‘green roof’ of the house has been designed to enable sunlight to flow over the house during the
day and is planted with sedum. Steps down from the main gardens descend to the garage and the under croft, which offers a large storeroom. From here Quarry Wood is crossed to the boathouse and studio, generous overflow parking, riverside
gardens and mooring.
