White Cottage sits in a secluded position close to Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. The property has well-proportioned accommodation including the double aspect sitting room and a kitchen with a breakfast bar and access to the garden.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) and planning permission for a two storey extension to the side of the house, which would create a garage and office, and raising the roof for all bedrooms and bathrooms.

Outside the garden backs onto woodland and has a large paved terrace with the remainder laid to lawn, with well-stocked flower beds.

White Cottage sits alongside just two other properties at the end of a long lane in Rotherfield Greys. Access to Henley and Reading is excellent, and the area is very well served by local schools, for which the Chilterns has an outstanding reputation.

The guide price is £740,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01491 843 040 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
