About this property

  • A unique opportunity to acquire a property which is on the market for the first time in over 50 years. Eastbank occupies a great position on the highly regarded River Road situated on the banks of the River Thames. Dating back to 1853, Eastbank was part of the former mansion house known as White Place, which was built to the highest standard of its time. Eastbank is
    fortunate to have all of the principal rooms south facing. This, combined with the beautiful original features throughout, has created a property of great character and charm. It offers a pretty façade with shutters and ornate balcony which allows views of the river, as well as the beautiful gardens.

    The ground floor features a spacious reception hall with painted panelled walls and feature fireplace with log burner. Sitting room with Canadian pine panelling which gives this room a wonderful warm ambience. A generous window seat offering a front facing view is the ideal spot to admire the open fireplace flanked by built-in display cabinets with French doors opening onto the covered terrace. Dining room with painted panelled walls, unique built-in glass display cabinet, feature fireplace and French doors opening out onto the covered terrace. Kitchen with a comprehensive range of fitted units and sliding doors to the terrace. Family room with sliding doors to the terrace. Utility room with shower, basin, laundry plumbing, slate shelves and storage space and cloakroom. Laundry room with built-in storage cupboards.

    On the first floor, there is a landing with a range of built-in cupboards. Charming master bedroom with river views, feature fireplace and adjoining space (currently used as a study) with access to the balcony with views over the garden and river. Three further well-proportioned bedrooms (two with washrooms) and two family bathrooms.

    A wrought iron gate in the high brick wall opens to reveal a charming formally planted west garden with York stone paving. This has created a welcoming entrance. A unique arched wood store leads you through to the walled south facing garden. The garden is principally laid to lawn with mature trees, herbaceous borders and shrubs. The paved York stone terrace, which is
    sheltered by the balcony, is the perfect space for outdoor entertaining. Adjoining this is the ornamental pond and mini footbridge, which together form a delightful focal point. At the rear of the garden, entered through a beautiful stone archway, is an additional garden area with prominent stone
    dove cote, large soft fruit beds, fruit trees, woodland and lawn formerly used as a tennis court. Situated at the rear of the garden is the gated access to the garages and parking for several cars.

    Potential purchasers should be aware that asbestos containing materials have been identified as being present within the property and recent asbestos removal and treatment works have been undertaken in two areas of the property;reoccupation certificates have been issued. It is the responsibility of any purchaser to consider what further asbestos removal and treatment works may be required as part of any future refurbishment or other works to the property.

    An Asbestos Management Survey and reoccupation certificates are available to all those intending to view or purchase the property.
