Three Barns is an elegant barn conversion in a peaceful location on the banks of the River Lodden on the edge of the village of Wargrave. Now an idyllic family property, the house is approached in a courtyard setting and has been designed to maximise the enjoyment of riverside life.

Externally the house is extremely attractive, while inside is a mixture of traditional and contemporary. The entrance hall and library have parquet flooring and a vaulted ceiling; the vaulted ceiling in the dining room is set off by the floor-to-ceiling windows which have views out to the river.

The drawing room includes a wood burning stove within an open fireplace and two sets of double doors leading into the gardens, and the kitchen is the heart of the property.

Bedrooms are approached via an L-shaped gallery to the rear pf the property and includes the generous master bedroom suite and two excellent guest suites, plus two additional bedrooms, all en-suite.

A large range of outbuildings includes a guest annexe, an office/games room and a party barn. A one bedroom attached cottage would make a useful staff annexe.

The gardens lie for the most part between the house and the river and a large decked terrace has steps up to the main terrace. Doors all along this side of the house open onto this outdoor space, which becomes an outdoor room in summer, at the end of which is a peaceful sunken garden.

River frontage extends to around 295ft and the decked jetty and covered dining area have beautiful views along the river. There is also a hard tennis court – the land extends to around 1.7 acres.

Wargrave has good local shopping and a train station with a regular service to London. Henley-on-Thames is under five miles to the north.

The guide price is £2.95m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01491 844 900 or visit search.knightfrank.com.
