About this property

  • Croft Cottage is an exceptional example of a contemporary country residence, situated on this exclusive private road within easy reach of Henley-on-Thames. The property was completely renovated and extended by the previous owner and has been built to the highest standards with stunning attention to detail throughout. Though called a cottage and enjoying exceptional rural views to the rear, the accommodation is substantial and extends to over 3200 sq ft, with an open and bright layout.

    The property is decorated in a modern style throughout with attractive wooden floors, premium wooden doors and characterful features including vaulted ceilings.

    Excellent natural light is provided by large, single-pane windows, with extensive floor-to-ceiling doors on the ground floor further enhancing the feeling of light and space.
    Further desirable additions include underfloor heating, an air source heat pump and air conditioning in the master bedroom.

    The detached property is entered via an inviting entrance hall which is open to the family room and vast kitchen/dining space. Both of these rooms are equally well suited to both entertaining and daily family life, with excellent use of space further improved by high ceilings. Despite the vast size of each room, both can be easily made to feel cosy in the winter months by wood-burning stoves, and there are doors opening to the garden further extending the living spaces outside in the summer.

    The kitchen is well equipped with a number of included appliances and is fitted with stylish wooden units complemented by quartz work surfaces. The storage available is excellent, and also features a pantry and a separate utility with access to the garage. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and guest bedroom with en suite bathroom.

    On the first floor, the three bedrooms are arranged around a handsome galleried landing and all feature vaulted or pitched ceilings. The 20ft master bedroom has a stunning panorama through floor-to-ceiling windows. The master bedroom is notable for its fitted dressing room and en suite shower room. The two further bedrooms also have en suite shower rooms and fitted storage.

    The rear garden at Croft Cottage is beautifully landscaped with an expansive lawn enclosed by fencing and hedges, with exceptional views over the countryside. On a raised level adjoining the house is a paved patio ideal for outdoor dining, easily accessed from the kitchen and family room. The garden is secluded and well stocked with mature shrubs, border plants and a variety of established trees.
