    About this property

    • Description
      Harpsden View is a stunning architecturally designed family home of almost 7,000 sq ft of living space, with stunning bespoke detail throughout.

      The vendor collaborated with a number of esteemed designers to install unique curved windows, a striking glass-panel staircase with solid wooden bannister and a fabulous Wohr underground parking system with space for two cars.

      With stunning views across open grassland, the house enjoys a favourable south-westerly aspect and has been angled to maximise the leafy green panoramas, which can be viewed from the pool area, kitchen/breakfast room and roof terrace. The property is exceptionally presented and features the highest build and design standards.

      The layout was designed by the late David Tapp, an esteemed local architect, with interiors by Gavin Johnson Design including the magnificent contemporary kitchen. Gardens designed by the renowned George Carter complete this extraordinary home. With accommodation arranged over three floors, the home is a fabulous family residence and offers generously proportioned accommodation throughout.

      The main living areas are situated on the ground floor, with a spacious entrance hall leading to a 26ft sitting room with gas fire, a formal dining room and a vast kitchen/ breakfast room which serves as the main hub of the home.

      The latter is fitted with a range of premium appliances including a fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven, five-burner gas hob and microwave. These are inset within an attractive modern kitchen with gloss units, granite work surfaces and wooden floors. A study and cloakroom complete the living accommodation.

      There is also a very intimate and warm wood panelled study with a gas fire place.

      On the first floor, accessed via a handsome staircase leading to a galleried landing, there are four spacious bedrooms, all with en suite bath or shower rooms. The master bedroom is a particular highlight with double doors opening to the beautiful views, a chic bathroom with twin basins, bath and shower, and a dressing area with fitted storage. Sliding doors also open to a substantial roof terrace, where there is currently a timber-framed hot tub. Additionally, there is a further fifth en suite bedroom on the second floor.

      A wonderful highlight of this property is its extensive leisure facilities, which are located on the lower ground floor. With beautiful views over the gardens and surrounding countryside, the pool area has curved glass doors which open fully to create an indoor-outdoor space.

      The swimming pool features a separate plunge pool/Jacuzzi and water jets, with a sauna, shower room, steam room and two plant rooms adjacent. Additionally there is a 6 seat cinema, gym with shower room and laundry room.

      Outside
      The house is set back from the road and accessed via wrought-iron gates which open to a large paved parking area with mature hedges and well-stocked borders surrounding, providing a delightfully secluded feel.

      A unique element of the property is a sunken Wohr parking system underneath the driveway, which provides space for two cars and extra security. In addition, there is a substantial triple garage with a home office/studio on the first floor, which offers potential for development.

      The south-west-facing rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and has been landscaped by the garden designer George Carter, with mature planting throughout including formal topiary, a variety of trees, stocked borders with flowering plants and an extensive paved terrace leading around the outside of the house to a raised dining area. This exceptional family home is close to Henley and all it has to offer.
