    About this property

    • Market Cottage is a charming double-fronted period home located in the heart of Henley-on-Thames and is within close proximity to all local amenities. The attractive grade II listed home is being presented to the market for the first time in over 20 years and is originally from the c.16th century. The property has since been upgraded and extended to offer a lovely home in this enviable location.

      The property currently has two separate entrances with the original door leading to one of two reception rooms on the ground floor. The sitting and dining rooms are generous and are separated by a central, double-sided fireplace. Both rooms have great scale with high ceilings, large sash windows and original exposed beams.

      To the rear of the property is the extensive kitchen/breakfast room which covers the whole width of the home and offers an abundance of living space, measuring in excess of c.38ft wide. The kitchen provides plentiful storage, integrated appliances and work surfaces for preparation with a large benchtop. The extended kitchen also includes three sets of doors and Velux windows to provide an abundance of natural light. The ground floor is completed with a cloakroom and a cellar on the lower floor which could be converted to additional living space subject to planning permission consent.

      On the first floor are three double bedrooms, including the larger principal bedroom. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room, fitted integral wardrobes and a view of St. Mary's Church looking down towards the market square. A further family bathroom sits adjacent to the stairs which lead to the fourth bedroom on the second floor.

      Outside, the rear garden is low-maintenance with a raised patio, walled borders and is planted with shrubs and small tress.

      A separate garage is available to the rear of the property with access provided under an archway next to number 6. Parking is available in the garage for a small car, with parking on the street also available on a first come first serve basis.
