An opportunity to acquire one of the River Thames' landmark properties standing on a promontory of beautiful grounds, which has been in the same family since the 1940's, in all about 1.4 acres.

The Property - For sale for the first time in over 70 years, Cape Farewell stands on arguably one the finest locations on the River Thames, a stunning spot where The Thames meets the River Loddon, creating unique and breathtaking 360 degree river views.

Accessed from a generous parking area with garaging, a private footbridge takes you over the Loddon and into the main grounds, stretched out along the banks of the Thames. The house has flexible accommodation and stands on the river's edge with incredible views from the main reception room.

Due to the nature of the length of ownership, the house would benefit from some updating, but we feel the potential is huge and the setting hard to beat!

The grounds are around 1.4 acres with a separate guest cottage (requiring refurbishment) and the main house has an integrated one-bedroom maisonette.

Situation - The entrance to Cape Farewell is accessed off Loddon Drive, a private road close to the thriving village of Wargrave. Shiplake Lock and Bushnell Marine Services are close by for boating on the Thames. At the end of Loddon Drive is Wargrave railway station, which links up with trains to London, Paddington (via Twyford) and the newly opened Elizabeth Line to the City. Beyond is the pretty village of Wargrave with a number of restaurants, coffee shops and public houses. There is a Waitrose supermarket in nearby Twyford.

There is also a popular tennis club, sailing club and the annual Wargrave and Shiplake Regatta is held in August. Henley-on-Thames is downstream, Sonning-on-Thames is upstream and the larger centres of Reading and Maidenhead are within easy reach for comprehensive shopping and transport links.

Services - Mains water, gas and electricity, private drainage.
