Description

Toad Hall is a wonderful family home with attractive brick elevations under a traditional clay tiled roof. It is the perfect waterside property with superb direct river access, 130 ft. private mooring space and a wet boat house.

This rather special property has spacious and well proportioned living space over three floors. The classic Edwardian features throughout the house make this a truly wonderful home with immense charm and character. The impressive hallway which opens to the drawing room welcomes you into the house. The drawing room has a most attractive open fireplace and a large bay window over looking the riverside gardens. The adjoining family room also features a bay window over looking the gardens. There is a dining room with a feature fireplace and French doors opening into the conservatory. The Tom Howley bespoke kitchen with central island is superbly equipped to meet the needs of modern family life. The breakfast area has bi-folding doors leading to the terrace. This provides a sheltered space, with retractable awning, from which to enjoy the garden and river views. A well planned utility room and charming cloakroom complete the accommodation on this floor.

On reaching the first floor, the staircase splits to a delightful sitting area which gives access to a room known as the library, but could be used as a further bedroom. There are 3 principal bedrooms, two with views to the front gardens and rose pergola. The beautifully presented master bedroom has a balcony from which to enjoy the magnificent river view. This room benefits from a dressing area and superb en-suite with bath, separate shower, twin sinks and another door to the balcony. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor. The second floor has two comfortable double bedrooms both with their own en suite bathrooms.

Outside
Driving through the wrought iron gates and down the long gravel driveway to Toad Hall, one encounters a real 'sense of arrival'. By the entrance gates stands a detached garage, whilst lawned gardens flank the driveway down to the house. In front of the entrance to the house is a large turning/parking area for numerous cars. The gardens have a variety of established mature hedges and beautiful rose pergola providing an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion. Planning permission has been obtained for a new double garage with a studio above and another separate single storey home office/recreation room.

The house has wonderful riverside gardens which are laid to lawn and screened on both sides by further mature hedges and trees. Overlooking the riverside garden is a raised sun terrace and veranda, perfect for outdoor entertaining. Along the river edge is a wooden decked platform siding which runs the full width of the property of about 130ft. The attractive wet boat house stands to the side providing direct access onto the river.
