    About this property

    • Elegant, beautifully appointed and exceptionally spacious: Monks Hood is one of Ferry Lane's most desirable properties, enjoying an exclusive setting within the highly sought-after village of Medmenham. The property is privately situated within secluded, landscaped grounds, among a variety of specimen trees giving it a wonderfully green aspect. It is a tranquil spot exuding a feeling of calm, which continues inside where the soothing palette of neutrals combined with premium finishes presents a feel of luxury. No expense has been spared in creating this stunning home: underfloor heating and air conditioning keep the living spaces comfortable year-round, premium materials feature throughout and each reception room has been thought out individually, whether for entertaining or enjoying private time as a family.

      The house has been substantially extended by the vendor and offers more than 5000 sq ft of accommodation, which has an open, flowing layout. The central reception hall leads to the living accommodation: an inviting library/snug, a 25ft drawing room, a cosy family room, a welcoming study and an expansive and light-filled orangery to the rear that's perfect for family gatherings and has lovely views over the garden. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with all modern conveniences, plus desirable extras such as wine storage, a bar area and a variety of integrated appliances, including Gaggenau appliances. There's also a utility room and a pantry.

      Upstairs, the six double bedrooms are all a generous size and immaculately presented, arranged around a central landing which opens to a balcony with lovely views over the front lawns. The principal suite is 25ft and has a dressing room and luxurious en suite, while three of the further bedrooms have en suite facilities and access to a separate shower room.

      The property is set within a private and attractively landscaped plot of 0.6 acres, behind imposing electric gates with intercom access which open to reveal a long gravel driveway, a beautifully landscaped garden including impressive willow trees and both a double garage and a detached car port. The secluded gardens continue to the rear, where there is an open lawn enclosed by mature trees and hedging and a number of seating areas for enjoying the idyllic outside space. The borders are planted with a wide variety of shrubs and trees throughout.

    Local information

    • Ferry Lane is a coveted location in Medmenham, a lane of pretty, mostly detached homes that leads to the river Thames. A public slipway is at the foot of the lane giving access to the water for local residents.
    • Medmenham is delightfully rural yet perfectly positioned for access to both Marlow and Henley-on-Thames, being 3.5 miles and 4.5 miles respectively.
    • The towns of Marlow and Henley offer an eclectic mix of local independent and national retailers. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants around the towns suited for any occasion. Both towns are situated on the banks of the River Thames and the Thames Path follows the river through the towns.
    • Just outside the town centres, the area opens out to glorious rolling countryside and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor pursuits are numerous, as are golf, football, cricket and rugby clubs. For commuters, both towns have train stations to Paddington (via Maidenhead and/or Twyford) and the M40 and M4 motorways are accessed from the A404(M) which pass the towns. A comprehensive range of private and state schooling options in the area include Sir William Borlase's Grammar School, Eton, Harrow, Wycombe Abbey, Caldicot Preparatory School and some excellent schools in the Maidenhead and Henley area.
