Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II listed character home in the town with parking and planning permission to extend.


The Old Basketmakers Arms is a beautifully presented period cottage situated in the centre of Henley-on-Thames. The origins of the house date back to the 17th Century and more recently can be traced back to being a pub that was converted in the 1970's into a home that now offers flexible accommodation, off street parking a delightful private garden and has granted planning permission to extend. Throughout, the property has retained a wealth of original features that include exposed brickwork, oak timber frame and beams, wooden floors, fireplaces and latch & brace doors. Leading off the entrance hall is the sitting room with period featured beamed ceiling, wooden floor and fireplace with log burner set in. Accessed from the sitting room is the basement, which has been converted into a study, fitted with a desk and storage units. The kitchen has been thoughtfully fitted and provides a modern feel. There are a number of wall base units and drawers finished with a marble worktop. Integrated appliances include a Rangemaster stove, Bosch dishwasher and wine fridge. The dining room is accessed off the kitchen and has lovely views over the delightful garden. There is an Inner Hall that you can also access the garden from and provides the stairs to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms including the principal suite with en suite shower room. The remaining two bedrooms are served by a shower room.

The Old Basketmakers Arms has two parking areas, one of which is immediately to the front of the cottage and the other is located off a private lane at the rear. The South facing garden is a delight, having been beautifully planted with an array of plants and flowers, there are patio areas that provide space for entertaining and alfresco dining.

Agents note: Planning permission (P19/S4505/LB) has been granted to create an open plan kitchen / breakfast / family room with bi fold doors onto the garden. Further information can be viewed on or in our office by appointment.
