Located on one of Henley’s premiere roads stands this impressive Edwardian gem that has to great effect, combined the traditional features of its time with inspiring contemporary architecrural design. Arriving at the property, a path running along the edge of the off street parking area leads to a covered porch where the partially glazed front door opens into the entrance hall. From here a view through the house can be observed and access to the principle reception rooms can be made as well as to the upper floors. The formal drawing room with original stripped flooring is a traditional and elegantly presented room. Bathed with natural light that falls through the bay window much of the original design is displayed beautifully here with original coving, and working fire place. From the sitting room there is an access to the kitchen where a study and reclining area are located. Continuing along the entrance hall and before reaching the kitchen, a cloakroom and access to the tanked cellar which houses the utility area, are found. Entering the kitchen it is at this point where one becomes immersed in the stunning architecturally created extension. The use of overhead windows, glazed walls as well as the carefully considered arrangement of the spaces, allows this kitchen to connect beautifully with the house and its surroundings. Slate floor tiling against the beautifully hand painted Harvey Jones kitchen is striking, and the Quartz work tops further set off the this stylish yet very practical kitchen. A centralised island unit offers a casual area for dining and a wonderful spot to purvey the surroundings. A further feature is the floating dining table from where views and access to the extensive landscaped gardens is made. The bedrooms are set out over two floors with the master suite and two further bedrooms served by the family bathroom being found on the first floor. The architectural design features continue through the house most notably with the glazed balustrade and bespke engineered steel staircase rising to the fourth bedroom suite on the second floor.
