    About this property

    • Lilypads is a charming detached cottage, with four bedrooms, set in an idyllic position on the banks of the River Loddon, with its own private boat deck on the river. The property has plenty of charm and character, with its handsome arched porch, bay windows and timber-clad dormer windows, while inside the accommodation is light, airy and extremely comfortable. The property benefits from a secluded and private situation, with the calming flow of the river making it an ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

      The main reception room is a well-proportioned sitting room, which is perfect for relaxing as a family, with its brick-built open fireplace and French doors taking in that wonderful view across the rear gardens and towards the riverbank. There is also a spacious study and a formal dining room, both of which are to the front of the property, while the kitchen provides plenty of storage space in attractive mint green units, as well as integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.

      There are four bedrooms to the first floor, including the principal bedroom, which has fitted storage and an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The fourth bedroom is a single and could also be used as an office or dressing room.

      Outside
      At the front of the property, five-bar timber gates open onto a gravel driveway, which provides plenty of parking space and access to the detached double garage with storage space on its first floor which has the potential to be converted to a home office (subject to the usual consents). The gardens to the rear of the house have an area of elevated timber decking and an immaculate lawn, with mature trees and established shrubs to the borders. At the end of the garden, the River Loddon flows past, with a beautiful weeping willow tree creating shade and a timber boat deck providing the opportunity to moor your own boat.
