Sitting in nearly two acres of gardens and wooded grounds
Set on the banks of the river Thames, The Old House is an enchanting, principally Georgian house, listed Grade II.
The present owners undertook a major restoration project in 2006 and completely modernised the main house to include a new roofwiring, bathrooms, a bespoke kitchen and underfloor heating to the main reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room.
Adjoining the house is a later addition, probably built in the 1950’s as an artist’s studio. This has only been generally updated and used as additional space when entertaining; it is ideal for parties. In fact it has the potential to be enlarged to provide a small wet boat house for the new owner, subject to all planning consents.
Accommodation in total comprises: hall, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, breakfast kitchen, garden room, four bedrooms, dressing room and family bathroom.
Outside are the riverside pontoon and mooring and mature gardens and grounds. To the front of the house over the tow path is an area of garden adjoining the river with pontoon and mooring space. This garden has been beautifully planted, while the majority of the gardens lie to the rear of the house, and include a large terrace which offers exceptional space for outside entertaining and a shaded pergola with flowering wisteria.
Adjoining the studio is a raised deck overlooking the stream that feeds from the garden into the River. The remainder of the gardens are partially wooded and include Mulberry, cherry, quince, apple, damson, chestnuts, elms and weeping beech – a carpet of flowers can be seen here in springtime. A spring-fed stream meanders through the garden
The Old House is located just one mile outside Henley-on-Thames which has wonderful amenities and terrific rail links to London.
