About this property

  • The Open House, built in 2008, is an exceptional contemporary family home, cleverly designed by Spratley & Partners Architects to take advantage of the space and light to create a fabulous modern open plan living environment. The property features a handsome brick structure with highlights of oak and glass to allow for vast natural light throughout, situated on one of the best roads in Henley.
    The specification of the fixtures, fittings and internal joinery are of the highest standard. This includes ground source heating and air-conditioning throughout. There is also an integrated sound system, and programmable lighting. One of the most striking architectural features is the glass and steel staircase that winds up an 11 m tall atrium from the basement to the second floor.
    The stylish kitchen and utility features Miele appliances and units by Pedini, which complement the open-plan living space. The work surfaces are sculpted from toughened glass and curve around to create an ergonomic working and social environment.
    The quality of construction and attention to detail is apparent throughout, with bespoke high-quality joinery and textured wall finishes, including natural stone and sculpted plaster work. Some unusual woods and veneers also feature in various rooms including Zebrano in the fully equipped home office. The use of natural materials are apparent when looking at the beautiful limestone tiled floors, which run through much of the ground floor and basement, and the exceptional use of marble floor and wall tiles in each bathroom.
    The property has a fitted integral double garage with electric doors. Three phase electricity is available at the property for electric vehicle fast charging. The garage is also heated and dehumidified which would be ideal for the storage of a classic car.

    The Gardens and Grounds
    The Open House is separated from the road by a high brick wall with arrow slit openings allowing glimpses of the garden. Electrically operated wrought iron gates give access to the driveway and in turn to the integral garage. The manicured gardens to the front of the property thoughtfully designed with modern planting. There are 2 eye-catching stainless-steel obelisks flanking the central lawn area in front of the house.
    The south facing rear garden is a major feature of the property, providing an ideal location for garden parties. The lower garden comprises a terraced area with square lawned areas to either side, each with a central copper acer enclosed by a box hedge. To one side of the garden is an architectural stainless steel pergola leading to wide steps to the rear lawn. There is a further set of wide central steps that lead up to the lawns from the rear terrace. These steps are flanked on one side by a long stone carp pond and to the other a raised shrub bed. The intermediate level is ideal for games or larger garden parties. Beyond is a further herbaceous border interjected by tall Mediterranean Cypress. The lawns then continue to rise up to an area of mixed woodland that makes the perfect backdrop for this delightful garden.
