Tenure: Freehold

History. Excellence. Elegance. This is the immediate feeling is when you enter this home. This delightful 4 bed home is set in an acre (approx.) of secluded grounds by the banks of the River Thames with its own 110ft rising moorings and slipway with a 35 minute commute to Waterloo. See Drone Video

This home is a tribute to the original Architect who designed this for himself and his family and the current vendors who have created a modern and functional house. 4 double bedrooms, flexible reception rooms and a secluded woodland garden. The house (2,400 sq ft) and double garage is sited on a huge 1 acre plot with planning permission to undertake a 1,600 sq ft extension, so potential for 4,000 + sq ft! (approx).

This truly unique house is located right by the Thames and is opposite the start line for the Staines Rowing Regatta. Indeed you could have your house or garden party watching it on the 22nd July 2017! It's location is very peaceful and set well back from the road. Set amongst the mature trees, you enter the house from the long drive with parking for lots of cars. Inside you walk into a beautiful wood panelled hall. There is a door to a bathroom on your left, and then master bedrooms dressing area, then WOW - straight into this stunning octagonal lounge (24ft x 20ft approx), with its triple height vaulted ceiling, and a wood burning stove. Standing there you can soak up the amazing views of the activity on the River Thames on the one side and the wooded grounds on the other, both accessed through sliding double doors. The modern kitchen and dining area is next, with further double doors onto the undercover riverside patio, leading onto the wonderful riverside garden. The Master Bedroom is downstairs, with its own dressing area, seating area and double doors, overlooking the river. It's a great spot for reading the paper with that early morning cup of tea or coffee! Bedroom 2 is also on the ground floor with river views and has direct access to the patio.

Sitting in the covered riverside patio, you look out onto the rear garden, overlooking the River Thames with mature shrubs and wonderful trees. If you are into 'messing about on the river', as per Toad and Ratty in 'Wind in the Willows', there is a huge 110ft rising mooring, for even the biggest boats plus a slipway. The vendors have now decided to keep their Dutch Barge on the continent, one of the reasons for their move. On the other side of the house you also have a covered patio overlooking the impressive wooded front garden, enough to keep the family occupied or it will give you peace and tranquillity after a busy day! There is a wood shed, a further storage shed and a substantial double garage in the front garden. Up the twin sets of stairs there are 2 further bedrooms, both doubles, 1 of which has an ensuite bathroom. The ensuite bedroom above the study also allows for that and the study below to be used as a private annex if required for family or visitors.

Every part of this home has quality features. Just picking out some of these paints a picture of the style within this property: bathroom under floor heating, up-lighters around in the octagonal lounge, individual room heating, marble worktops, integrated AEG built in twin oven, microwave, heating draw, induction hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The Utility room even comes complete with it's own wine fridge!

Looking for a Project or more space? The property comes with Planning Permission for an additional 1,600 sq ft extension ref RU.13/0542. This would expand the already impressive octagonal lounge with a new entrance and vestibule to the front garden, and a large riverside orangery/conservatory, with amazing views. Upstairs there is permission for a new octagonal en-suite master bedroom, complete with 2 balconies overlooking both the River Thames and the wooded gardens!
