About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Waterside
  • Prime

WATERSIDE - Riverdene is tucked away in a discreet location on the south side of the Thames. It is an exceedingly pretty house of elegant proportions with Georgian characteristics. The slate Mansard roof and black “volets” give the property a Parisian feel, somewhat reminiscent of the private mansions to be found in the leafy Bois de Boulogne. It is steeped in history and counts Sir Algenon Guinness, the racing driver who set the land speed

record at Brooklands in 1922, amongst its owners. The house and neighbouring 12th century church were the subjects of paintings by Royal Academician Sir Stanley Spencer who described Cookham as “a village in heaven”.

Double doors lead from the porch through to the reception hall and then the drawing room with its coved ceiling and Louis XVI fireplaces. The latter are surrounded by wooden panelling originating from a house in London’s Upper Berkeley Street,

formerly owned by the Duchess of Windsor. With its two distinct seating areas, the drawing room is a fabulous space both for family life and entertaining, especially when the casement doors

to the enclosed verandah are thrown wide open providing the perfect vantage point from which to savour the view across the lawn. The casement doors still house some of the original glass panes. Two pairs of French doors lead from the verandah down steps to the gardens. The reception hall also leads to the study and the dining room which, in turn, opens to the kitchen and wonderfully spacious sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and bay window seating. Three pairs of French doors allow plenty of light into this area of the house and permit access to the gardens and a terraced area, which has been attractively created for al fresco dining. Further rooms on the ground floor include the family room, which can double as a cinema room, a utility room and a cloakroom. A staircase leads down to the wine cellar and storage space.

The first floor is approached by a wide and gracious staircase from the reception hall or by the former servants’ staircase near the kitchen. The principal bedroom suite comprises a large bathroom and a well-designed dressing room. The bedroom is dual aspect and offers captivating views of the river and Cookham Bridge. Two further bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and the fourth bedroom is close to the family bathroom. There are four further bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has an en suite shower room. A family bathroom completes the accommodation on the second floor. The house engenders a sense of calm and is beautifully decorated to a high standard with respect for many of its original features.
