    About this property

    • The location of this attached former boathouse can't be beaten: it's less than 100 metres from the end of Marlow's High Street and adjacent to a delightful town park, with the garden having direct access onto the Thames Path. From the rear of the house, the garden and the roof terrace there are 180-degree views down the river to Marlow's stunning suspension bridge, and up the river towards Bisham. The views of the water can also be enjoyed from the conservatory on the back of the house, and are wonderfully tranquil. The house also benefits from off-street parking and its own private jetty mooring.

      The ground floor of the house has been modernised, including a the kitchen and bathroom, though there is still scope to personalise some of the upstairs rooms to suit the tastes of the new owner. The reception spaces are bright and elegant, including a 26ft sitting room which opens, via sliding glazed doors to a traditional style conservatory. An archway leads to a galley-style kitchen with breakfast bar, which also opens to the garden. There's a large double bedroom on the ground floor, which offers good versatility: it also opens onto the conservatory and could be used as an additional reception room if desired. The ground floor also features a contemporary shower room, cloakroom with WC, utility room and large storage space under the stairs. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both with direct access onto an en suite bathroom, and a roof terrace.

      Outside
      Rye Peck is tucked away within a no-through cul de sac, with a private driveway to the front affording off-street parking. There's also an integrated garage, which can be accessed from inside the house. To the rear there's a south-facing courtyard-style garden, which is laid to stone tiles with a border of mature shrubs around the edges. The railings to the rear provide unobstructed views over the river and there's a pedestrian gate which opens to the riverside, including the Thames Path. The house also benefits from its own private mooring, with a wooden jetty. From one of the upstairs bedrooms a door opens to an amazing roof terrace with far-reaching views up and downstream.

    I cannot think of a better roof terrace on which to relax in the evening - those views are extraordinary.
