A magnificently presented bungalow in an exclusive traffic free development for those aged 55 years and above. The onsite facilities include a residents’ lounge, guest suite and there is a warden.
This particular property has undergone recent complete modernisation. It features a magnificent fully fitted kitchen and new bathroom fittings. The wooden flooring (not laminate) has a cushion beneath and the carpeting has extra underfelt whilst the bathroom has a walk-in shower with non-slip tiles and hand grip. The kitchen includes a Bosch double cooker (not used) microwave, dishwasher, Hoover washing machine, fridge/freezer, Lamona 4 ring electric hob with extractor hood over. There is Wi-Fi connected and TV in the main rooms.
The communal gardens are well maintained and the layout of the bungalows (this one is a terrace bungalow) ensures maximum possible privacy with little over-looking.
The freehold is owned and the properties managed by Housing and Care 21. To quote from their web-site:
“Bowling Court in Henley-on-Thames offers the best of both worlds – a quiet home in the countryside with the attractions and amenities of Town life close at hand. It comprises thirty x 1 bedroom apartments and 1 and 2 bedroom bungalows. Communal facilities on site include a Residents’ Lounge, small kitchen and laundry room as well as a guest room for use by visiting family and friends. The properties are set within attractive gardens which have regularly won the Henley in Bloom competition. The gardens feature a pond with koi carp and residents are welcome to get involved with garden. Buses to Wallingford and Oxford stop outside the Court on a regular basis, while buses to Reading and High Wycombe can be caught in the Town Centre. There is also a Henley Handy Bus Service that takes residents to a nearby supermarket on Wednesdays and Fridays.”
The shopping centre of Henley including Waitrose, is just over half a mile and the River Thames within 1 mile. Henley is well renowned, particularly perhaps for the world famous Royal Regatta followed by the Henley festival. The Chiltern Hills to the north of the Town provide a lovely back drop, whilst communication links are excellent. Henley station includes a service directly to London (Paddington), the journey taking about 47 minutes, whilst the M4 on the outskirts of Maidenhead and the M40 just to the south of High Wycombe are each about 12 miles away. An idyllic and exceptionally convenient setting.
