Rarely available, this magnificent castellated Edwardian house stands proudly on one of Henley on Thames sought after roads. Whilst remaining relatively true to its original design, this house offers generously sized accommodation that is presented with elegance and style. Arriving at the property mature hedges stand proudly either side of a wrought iron garden gate offering excellent privacy. An attractive tiled path cuts its way through the middle of the front garden leading the way to the covered front door which opens into the vestibule. Semi glazed doors open into this most elegant of reception halls, above which a glass ceiling lantern allows natural light to flood into this area providing a wonderful sense of arrival and grandeur. The principle reception rooms and a cloakroom are arranged off this reception hall. With the exception of the study, which holds views onto the front garden, the elegant drawing and sitting rooms both respectively, look out over the rear garden. The continuation of elegance and space that comes from such features as high ceilings and large bay windows, a feature of the Edwardian period and found throughout the house, draw in light and provide extended views over the gardens. In both these rooms are working fireplaces and direct access onto a fantastic newly laid terrace which stands elevated above the garden. The kitchen located just off the sitting room is perfectly positioned and as kitchens must, provides a dynamic area that caters well for the many needs of family life. Plain English bespoke hand painted kitchen units sit beneath granite work tops incorporating fitted Miele appliances and an old fireplace houses a gas Aga. The island unit, set centrally within the kitchen provides a casual dining area as well as housing an induction hob, electric oven and useful store cupboards, along with an area for formal dining at the end of the kitchen. A walk in pantry is located between the kitchen and utility room and access to the cellar which features two useful store rooms.
Taking the stairs in the reception hall to the first floor, the bedrooms are arranged off the galleried landing. The master suite is a wonderful room, complete with a walk in wardrobe and a beautifully appointed ensuite bathroom which has twin sinks, a separate shower and bath. Between the bedroom and ensuite, stairs lead up to the flat roof where fabulous views over Henley and the distant countryside can be enjoyed. The guest bedroom has an ensuite shower room and the remaining three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
