Handsome period town house


Mewslade occupies a fantastic position on the south side of the Marlow road with a south facing garden. Within half a mile of the town centre and all that it offers, it is superbly placed. Marlow is a charming town with some very fine restaurants and an excellent range of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities. A comprehensive range of private and state schooling options in the area include Sir William Borlase's Grammar School, Eton, Harrow, Wycombe Abbey, Caldicot Preparatory School and some excellent schools in the Maidenhead area


Mewslade is a fine Victorian period house believed to have been built in the 1860s, divided in the 1930s and extended in 2000 by the current owners. Built by General Higginson it has reputedly been visited by George IV and Queen Mary. It provides generous, family accommodation, full of character and period features which is arranged over three floors. The house was extended in 2000 to provide a large kitchen/dining and sitting room. The kitchen benefits from an Aga, granite work surfaces, oak flooring, an island unit and a 2-ring gas hob. This leads to a vaulted sitting room with fireplace. The magnificent drawing room overlooks the garden and enjoys 2 large bay windows, shutters, panelled walls, a splendid open fireplace with carved surround, original pine board flooring and handsome cornicing. The reception hall, with WC, coats recess and side cupboard, has a full height vaulted ceiling with castellated cornicing and a galleried landing above.

Mewslade is approached over a shared gravelled private driveway with parking for 2 - 3 cars (there is potential and space within the garden to create a garage and additional parking, subject to planning permission). The garden is laid principally to lawn with some sculpted yew hedging and trees including yew, walnut and a magnolia grandiflora. The elevations of the house are creeper clad with wisteria and jasmine, and there is a garden shed and small kitchen garden behind the yew hedging.


From Henley-on-Thames, continue onto Bell Street, and at the roundabout take the second exit onto Marlow Road (A4155). Continue to follow the A4155 for 6.8 miles and on entering Marlow, Mewslade will be found on the right.
