About this property

  • Situated in a superb position with views towards the River Thames is this attractive character home offering spacious and versatile accommodation. The property overall provides five bedrooms, usefully laid out as four bedrooms and two bathrooms in the main house with a superb en suite guest bedroom/annex above the garage – accessed both by a private external entrance and an internal staircase from the main house. Gardens and terraces are to the side and the rear, taking full advantage of the elevation and views.

    The property is approached down an attractive private lane amongst similarly impressive homes. The Bower sits to the right of the road and is set into the hillside, elevated from the roadside giving views from the frontage towards the River Thames. A driveway for several cars leads to the double garage, with a path up to the front door and front terracing.

    The front opens into a hallway with a staircase to the first floor and doors to the principle rooms. A sitting room has a fireplace with log burner and doors to the front terrace, a panelled dining room provides formal dining space and a fitted office provides a useful study space. The kitchen is large in size with a high vaulted glazed ceiling, and is open plan to a morning room/breakfast room. Through the kitchen is a staircase leading up to a large room with lovely views to the front down to the River Thames. With a modern en suite shower room the room lends itself for use as a superb bedroom or annex, but could equally be used as a raised sitting room, family room or library.

    To the first floor the main accommodation provides four bedrooms, the master bedroom having a beautiful en suite shower room and the family bathroom being impressive both in size and design.

    The outside of the property is a particular feature, the wide elevated plot providing large terraces each side of the house one of which in particular has outstanding views to the front. Rising up the plot to the rear is a lawn area with summer house and above the garage is a raised area with detached timber outbuilding – with light and power so ideal for use as a home office.

    There is access to the river which is a highly prized yet little known amenity to the residents of Stonehouse Lane. Across the lane from this home is a path which leads directly to the riverbank, where there is a bench from which you can view the surrounding countryside. There is space to launch paddle boards, canoes and the like.

I love this location, perfectly rural in feeling yet remaining brilliantly convenient.
