An utterly exquisite early Georgian Grade II* Listed landmark home occupying an incredible position overlooking the River Thames.
This exceptional detached house with five bays was originally built in the 1690's and was later expanded with two additional wings by James Gibbs the architect who designed St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square. It is now on the market for only the second time in nearly 100 years.
The house is situated in a plot of approximately ½ an acre and is set well back from the road with a walled front garden and parking for a number of cars.
The house boasts over 8,500 sq ft of living space and has retained much of its incredible character and features throughout. The extensive accommodation is practically configured and lends the house equally well to both everyday family life and more formal entertaining.
The moment you enter the house you are immediately struck by the view through the drawing room out across the garden to the river beyond. The formal living rooms are positioned across the rear of the house providing exceptional lateral entertaining space, with a drawing room, dining room and a sitting room. Furthermore there is a large kitchen/breakfast room with double doors leading out to the garden.
The lower ground floor has scope to create further living space for a playroom and a gym.
On the upper floors there are currently nine bedrooms with views across the River with four bathrooms.
The gardens front and rear are predominantly laid to lawn with a selection of mature trees, shrubs and flowers. To the rear there is a paved terrace which provides an ideal alfresco entertaining space and opens onto the beautiful lawn which in turn leads down to the river.
There is a summerhouse looking out to the river and one could enquire about a mooring.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to secure a house of this calibre, history and setting.

Cross Deep offers a rare chance to own a slice of history on the banks of the River Thames. The house marries elegance and charm in equal measure. It retains its period integrity with a wealth of original features while offering plenty of scope for the purchaser to make the home their own.Daniel KillickProperty agent
