About this property

  • Riverslea is a splendid detached period property believed to have been designed by George Val Myer made famous with his design of Broadcasting House in London. Historically a more modest version of this house existed, along with three others nearby built in the same style and would typically have served as weekend and holiday homes away from London.

    The house was fully renovated and altered 10 years ago to create what is now a far more modern and practical home. The current owners believe that there are still some obvious areas that can be further extended (subject to consent and planning permission.) The location itself is popular with locals seeking long river walks and benefits from a more rural feel whilst still just on the outskirts of the Henley town centre.

    A good-sized entrance hallway serves all the main downstairs reception rooms with a galleried landing above. With the exception of the cosy and welcoming reception room, complete with log burning stove, all these rooms have either wooden or tiled flooring. The open-plan kitchen is a major feature of this house owing to an imposing central island, mantle surrounding the range cooker, feature fireplace, as well as a long dining area that still allows space for a relaxed seating area and bi-fold doors that overlook the rear garden and provide access onto an outside elevated terrace area. A utility room leads off the kitchen with an external door Along with the front facing study, there is a separate family room / snug.

    The first floor consists of five well-presented double bedrooms, each benefitting from fitted storage. The generous principal bedroom has its own dressing room and en suite bathroom. The family bathroom has dual washbasins, bathtub, separate shower unit and access to what we're advised is a very generous loft space with pull down ladder.

    At the front of the property is a gated, gravel driveway, with ample parking set amongst mature rose beds, a stream with foot bridge and steps leading up to the front door. There is a garage which has been set back in the rear right-hand side of the garden currently used for bicycle and motorbike storage. The rear garden itself is South facing, laid mainly to lawn and backs onto woodland. Underneath the house is ample storage for garden furniture and the likes of kayaks and shallow boats. Steps lead up to an elevated terrace providing an outdoor seating area off the kitchen that no doubt makes the most of the southerly aspect and enjoys a commanding view over the garden. A very unique feature is that this property also enjoys shared use of a nearby, discreet River Thames slipway for launching small boats.
