Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Crocker End House is a wonderful family home dating principally from around 1840 during the Victorian era set in an idyllic position in a prime location within easy reach of Henley-on-Thames. The house has been in the same family ownership for the last 23 years and is on the market for only the second time in over 40 years, the previous owners being members of the royal family. There are no records of an open market sale in living memory.

Approached over a gravelled drive, set back from the edge of village lane, the house occupies a peaceful setting within beautiful gardens and grounds.

The entrance hall, off which is a cloakroom, leads into a grand reception hall with parquet flooring and a fine staircase. The dining room has an oak surround fireplace and high ceilings. Drawing room with wood board floors, bay window and double doors leading out to the terrace and garden. This is a lovely light drawing room with views over the garden. Family room, a cosy reception room with fire place and bay window. Sitting room, a wonderful family room with double doors onto the terrace. Kitchen/breakfast room with doors out to the garden, four door AGA and traditional larder. Nearby is a playroom/nursery, and access to cellars with strong room, wine bins and access to the boiler room. Off the back hall is a further WC and cloakroom and a utility room. At the far end of the house is a large study with doors leading out to the garden.

An elegant well lit staircase leads to the first floor landing. The master bedroom has an ensuite dressing room and bathroom with wonderful views of the garden and beyond.

Bedroom 2 with ensuite dressing room (also with access to the master bedroom providing a potential second suite) with shower room.

Bedroom 3 with double door to balcony.

Off the secondary landing are two bedrooms with an adjoining family bathroom, access to roof terrace through to a games room.
In the north wing is a further guest bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom. Stairs from here lead down to a further guest bedroom suite with an ensuite shower room.

On the second floor are two further bedrooms, family bathroom and playroom/attic room and access to a large attic.

Overlooking an attractive courtyard and approached through impressive brick piers is the Guest Cottage which is split into two lateral apartments. The ground floor is for guests and comprises two double bedrooms, bathroom and WC. On the second floor, with its own entrance, is a staff flat with a kitchen two bedrooms, bathroom and sitting room.

Within the courtyard is a stable block with two loose boxes currently used for storage and an attractive double garage equally ideal for use as a party room.

To the north of the house is a hard surface tennis court and range of garden stores. The gardens are mainly to the south and east of the house and are separated from open countryside beyond by parkland fencing. The neat gravel and stone terrace fronts the garden elevation to the house and is a wonderful area for barbecues and entertaining.

To the west of the house is a beautiful garden area designed by David Hicks with an outdoor swimming pool, changing pavilion and plant room.

Guarding the entrance to the property is an attractive timber framed one bedroom 'lodge' which was built by the previous owners and at the time was intended for use by security and has the benefit of planning consent for residential use. To the west of the lodge is an area of mixed woodland.
