A striking and wonderfully located riverside home
Constructed in 2005 5a Cross Deep occupies the left hand side of this pair of contemporary and architecturally exciting family homes that nestle enviably on the banks of the River Thames.
The house has been thoughtfully designed with a real emphasis on natural light and maximising what are unquestionably some of the finest views over the Thames you will see from any residential home. These views are even more striking by virtue of the fact that the house is positioned on the curve of the river and you therefore get sweeping aspects both up and down river, as well as views over the beautiful open acres of Ham Meadowland opposite.
All principal rooms benefit from these breathtaking water aspects and the house has a practical yet versatile flow of accommodation that serves it perfectly for both family life and more formal entertaining. What is also so refreshing to see in a modern design is the generosity of ceiling heights and room proportions.
Other features of particular note include 3 river facing balconies, a cinema room / teenagers den, a hot tub / Sauna room, an 'office at home' / study and a stunning open plan kitchen/family room that gives directly onto the garden and will doubtless be the day to day social hub of the house. The more formal reception area is located above the kitchen on the raised ground floor and is a spectacular space that is flooded with light and river views. The superbly appointed principal bedroom suite occupies the entire top floor (should you chose to use the 6th bedroom as a dressing room) and features a full width river facing balcony.
To the rear of the house there is a delightful garden that has a patio and jacuzzi area just off of the kitchen, with a lawned area then leading down to the river deck and pontoon mooring. This deck provides a perfect area for al fresco dining / entertaining and watching the ever colourful and ever changing river life go by. Whilst to the front of the house there is hardstanding off street parking.
It is seldom that a house of this calibre and setting comes to the market and as our clients sole agent we would strongly suggest a viewing at your earliest convenience.

Having been a local agent since 1987 I have seen and sold many houses along the Thames but this view is truly second to none and can be appreciated from all the principal roomsDaniel Hutchins
