Pond House is a striking property designed by the renowned architects Spratleys in Henley-on-Thames. The house sits within gardens of 3.6 acres in an elevated position with far reaching views over open countryside and has a sweeping gravel drive which arrives at the front of the house. Beyond
the entrance hall is an impressive open plan arrangement of reception areas which incorporates a reception hall and formal dining area featuring a raised fireplace and bi-folding doors opening onto a rear terrace. The vaulted kitchen, designed by
Roundhouse, holds a commanding position and uninterrupted views over the gardens and open countryside beyond. There is a central island unit that incorporates a Wolf gas hob, integrated
Sub Zero fridge and freezer drawers, Gaggenau ovens and coffee machine. Just off the entrance hall is a study with sliding doors opening into a snug/family room. The formal drawing room positioned at the front of the house benefits from delightful garden views. A sweeping helical staircase rises from the entrance hall to a landing, along which are the bedrooms. The current
arrangement offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms/shower rooms. The impressive master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and holds breath-taking and far-reaching views. The en suite has an open shower and free-standing bath. The guest bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms served by a family bathroom which features a free-standing circular bath. There is a fifth bedroom which is currently used as a dressing room with built-in wardrobes.
Pond House is situated approximately 6.9 miles north-west of Henley, in an elevated position with far reaching views over open countryside and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is only a few minute’s walk from the centre of
Stoke Row which has a village store, two award-winning pubs, a primary school, church and village cricket club. Stoke Row is also the site of the Maharajahs Well, a gift from the Maharajah
of Benares in 1831. Henley offers a good range of boutiques, a cinema, the Kenton Theatre, restaurants and pubs. The railway station provides regular rail travel to London Paddington and
a faster service operates from Reading (London 25 minutes and Cross Rail from 2019). Access to both the M4 and M40 motorways is approximately eight miles away.
The mature and lightly wooded grounds of Pond House are delightful and amount to approximately 3.6 acres. To the front of the house gently sloping
lawns with gravel paths between, enjoy various herbaceous borders and planted beds with a number of specimen trees and garden pond. Beyond the lawn the garden becomes informal
with a revolving summerhouse towards the northern boundary. There are wide terraces to the south side of the house including a decked terrace outside the kitchen/breakfast room and a wide al fresco dining area complete with fireplace and seating; perfect for outdoor entertaining.
The converted garage block offers fabulous ancillary accommodation which comprises an open plan kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room. Stairs lead to a bedroom and bathroom. Within the grounds there is a gym/office and gardener’s shed as well as another garden store.
