Rare and idyllic Thames Island setting with cottage and moorings
This delightful Grade II listed cottage with glorious views sits tucked away in an enviable position on an island with the River Thames meandering around its boundary. The cottage has been completely renovated by the present owners. Downstairs offers a generous sized kitchen with hand built oak units and a range cooker, and a large sitting/living room with wood burning stove. The utility room also doubles as a useful shower room. Upstairs, the master bedroom with walk through wardrobe has double doors opening onto a balcony with views all round. The internal oak doors and oak winder staircase were hand crafted locally.
A decked terrace wraps around two sides of the cottage and looks out onto the delightful private garden, with mature trees and a wild flower area leading down to the river and private mooring. There are also two single garages, raised vegetable beds and a pretty mature rose hedge to the front of the property.
The separate meadow with 25 moorings is sensitively screened by natural hedging. There is also a wooden garden shed and hard standing. The moorings are let out an annual leases and generate an income of about £25,000 per annum. Further information regarding management and income can be obtained from Savills.
The property is available as a whole or in 2 lots. Lot 1 and 2 are available together at £1,300,000 or Lot 1 on its own at £950,000.
