Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set in 3.5 acres, Pond House is a unique contemporary home which has been completely transformed by the current owners from a traditional 1930s house into a modernist fusion home, creating an inviting linear style combining open space, nature and light. The property has been renovated throughout and finished to a very high standard; notable features include a state of the art home cinema, Crestron automated home entertainment control and CAT6 network.

The 'Roundhouse' kitchen oozes quality with high specification appliances including names such as Gaggenau, Sub Zero and Wolf. Industrially-produced materials such as an exposed steel beam and factory lights create a unique effect. A curved sweeping helical staircase provides access to the first floor. The master bedroom has a centrally positioned bedstead, which allows one to take in the breathtaking far reaching views. The en-suite shower room has an open shower with two drench shower heads, spotlighting and beautiful green mosaic tiled walls and floor. The guest bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a bathroom with an extraordinary circular bath.

Gardens & grounds
The house nestles in the middle of the mature private grounds which extend to approximately 3.5 acres. Electronic gates and gravel driveway lead to the house. There is a timber-clad double garage with a studio and shower suite over, ideal for use as a home office or as a guest/staff bedroom.

An extensive south-west facing timber deck wraps around the rear of the house with glazed doors leading from the dining hall and drawing room creating the perfect space for al fresco dining, further complemented by an outside fireplace with surround.

The name of the house comes from the natural pond, which harbours a plethora of wildlife. The mature gardens are mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and a small orchard of fruit trees. Towards the rear of the garden there is a level, open area which could be used to house a tennis court (subject to relevant permissions). There is also a disused bunker which could be used for additional storage, or converted into a wine cellar. The grounds are extremely private and are not overlooked by neighbouring properties.

Situated in a slightly elevated position with far reaching views over the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty approximately 7 miles north-west of Henley. Pond House is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Stoke Row which has a village store, two award winning pubs, a primary school, church and village cricket club. Stoke Row is also the site of the Maharajahs Well, a gift from the Maharajah of Benares in 1831. Henley offers a good range of boutiques, a cinema, the Kenton Theatre, restaurants and pubs. The railway station provides regular rail travel to London Paddington and a faster service operates from Reading (London 25mins). Access to both the M4 and M40 motorways are approximately 8 miles away.

Recreational facilities nearby include Peppard Lawn Tennis Club, Oratory Real Tennis Club, Badgemore Park & Henley golf clubs, Greys Green Cricket Club, rowing clubs at Henley, Wallingford and Reading and there are extensive walks and bridleways just meters from the front door.

Rupert House and St Mary's School in Henley, Moulsford Preparatory, Cranford House School, Shiplake College, The Oratory in Woodcote and Radley College, Queen Anne's School in Caversham and The Abbey School in Reading. There are also buses to the popular private schools in Abingdon.
