    About this property

    • The original cottage dates to 1880 with later additions. Set back off the road, a porch leads to the front door. The hallway opens to the kitchen and the playroom, with all downstairs rooms interconnecting, making for a pleasing flow to the ground floor. The kitchen has painted wooden units below wooden and granite worktops and a terracotta floor. Appliances include Bosch induction hob, Neff fan oven and grill/oven combination, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is a Butler sink and useful large larder cupboard. A utility room and cloakroom are directly off with a door to the garden. The conservatory/breakfast room connects the kitchen with the sitting room through glazed French doors with glass panels either side, allowing for natural light to flood through. A full height decorative red brick chimney breast houses a Clear View wood burning stove. From here a further set of glazed French doors open to the playroom. On the first floor the principal bedroom has an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house is fully double glazed with new UPVC windows throughout.

      14 Abingdon Road is situated on the banks of the River Thames with 100 metres of river frontage and set in approximately 2 acres of grounds. Bordered by open farmland to the eastern boundary, the wild flower meadow is an exquisite extension of the garden. Paths are mown through creating delightful walks to the water's edge, with its pretty wooden jetty (10 metres long). Otters, kingfishers and deer are regular visitors, with the meadow being a haven for butterflies and dragonflies. There are full riparian rights for the enthusiastic angler. The Thames Path runs along the far side of the river ensuring privacy (all measurements are approximate).

      There is ample parking for numerous cars on the gravel drive with a field gate opening to the meadow. There is also a good-sized metal garden shed.

    The best thing about this lovely family home is how it surprises you. I wasn't expecting the huge gardens or the tranquil riverside setting with a lovely view of the bridge. Its a lovely place to mess about on the river!
