About this property

  • Riverside is a newly built eco house on two floors with a joined but self-contained single storey annex at the side. This (Super E) eco house has been imported from Canada and boasts a MHVR (Mechanical Heat Ventilation Recovery System) heating system, which makes the internal space relatively dust free and therefore excellent living space for allergy sufferers. There are triple glazed windows and doors throughout and LED mains electricity. Although Riverside was only completed just 4 years ago the owner purchased the land back in 1973 with the goal of building a home on this picturesque spot. The river that borders the complete south side of the property is well maintained and fast moving. The gardens are newly landscaped with sweeping lawns down to the river, shrubbery and rose beds and a recently planted laurel hedge. The owners ran a profitable Venison business and between the house and a spacious paddock is a large barn that used to house the deer.

    The front door opens into a double height entrance hall with a glass sided oak staircase and panelled doors leading into both of the sitting rooms. Riverside has a double aspect lounge with DAB/TV and Satellite connections and a second comfortable seating area with TV that forms part of the open plan kitchen/dining room. The fitted kitchen has Lamona appliances; double oven with grill, microwave and induction hob. There is also an integrated dishwasher and large fridge. All of this side of the house has glass bi-fold doors and wide windows to maximise the spectacular river view.

    The house has large, wide windows and each floor is flooded with light. The annex is joined to the main house by a glass walled link walkway. The annex comprises a spacious bedroom with en suite shower, a galley kitchen and separate utility room. There is internal access to the garage.

    On the first floor landing there is a large picture window and access to roof storage space. The master bedroom overlooks the river and has a walk-through dressing room leading to an en suite shower room. There are a further three good sized bedrooms all with large windows and high ceilings and a family shower room. TV connection is fitted in all bedrooms.


    A particular feature of this property is the very large barn that provides space for storage/garage /workshop. The barn has potential for a number of uses subject to the necessary permissions.

    The southwest facing rear garden has a large lawn and newly planted flower beds. There is a long terrace adjacent to the house for seating and a path leading down to the river and paddocks. On the driveway there is an electric garage door that can be opened remotely with one of the two fobs. There is external lighting all around the property and easy access to the water meter. There are external power points and a water tap. The 8.61 acres of land are made up of the garden, the large paddock and two further fields. There is also an area of ancient woodland.
