Description

Occupying a particularly special location, overlooking the River Thames and within easy reach of local amenities, Riverside is a beautifully presented and rarely available period cottage, having been occupied by just three owners since it was built in the 1800's. Originally a traditional two-up-two-down cottage, it has since been sympathetically extended and updated to provide a wonderful family home that has been well loved by the current owners over the past 16 years.

The accommodation is approached via an open porch, which leads through to the sitting/dining room. This is the original part of the house and retains many character features including oak floor boards, exposed beams and stonework and open fireplaces at either end of the room which are lovely focal points. There are three traditional casement windows permitting plenty of natural light, two of which look on to the river. Beyond here is the study, which has stairs rising to the first floor with storage beneath. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room is a good size with an extensive range of maple wall and base units including integrated fridge, dishwasher and dual fuel Rangemaster plus there are great views on to the terrace and gardens. The remainder of the ground floor accommodation is off the rear hall and includes a utility room, cloakroom, one further double bedroom and en suite shower room. These rooms have their own entrance that is separate from the main house and therefore could easily be arranged as a self contained annexe if required.

At first floor level are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is an excellent sized room, being dual aspect with views across the gardens, a very nicely fitted en suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. There is also an airing cupboard and useful eaves storage off the landing.

Outside, the formal gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and extend to around 1 acre. They have been very well maintained and are interspersed with a mature range of trees and developed shrub/flower beds and borders. The rear hall and ground floor bedroom both open on to the terrace, which is ideal for alfresco dining, whilst there is also a bbq area, pizza oven and boules pitch. At the far end of the garden is a fully enclosed vegetable patch with polytunnels and a small young orchard. There are a range of outbuildings including the remains of a former tannery, former dairy and stables, barn and hen house. The summerhouse is a great additional space and perfect for entertaining. Two access points are available, one of which is on foot via a gravelled driveway to the side of the property. The other is vehicular access to the front where there is ample parking available beyond a secure five bar timber gate. The paddock is fully enclosed by mature hedging and trees and can be accessed at the foot of the garden.

Square Footage: 2,009 sq ft
Acreage: 8 Acres
