Property description

A quite unique and attractive family home, built in 1933, extended to create well proportioned accommodation and set in mature landscaped gardens approaching half an acre. A short walk to open countryside and only a mile from Henley town centre. The wisteria-clad white rendered house is built in a chevron shape, with a distinctive grey-green roof made of recycled materials, and a generous conservatory to the rear. First floor bedroom accommodation has been created in the roof space.

The original Art Deco double door leads you into a spacious entrance hall, with high ceilings and Amtico wood flooring. A door takes you firstly into the study, formerly a single bedroom, which has a shuttered window to the front with fitted cupboards. From the study you turn into the sitting room, a bright L-shaped room with a window to the front and a pair of sliding doors to the rear garden. The focal point is the marble fireplace with ornate wooden surround and mantlepiece.

From the entrance hall you enter the open-plan living space, comprising a kitchen, a large conservatory and the family room. The kitchen has a comfortable layout and has an extensive range of fitted cream-coloured shaker style wall and base units, with granite work-surfaces over with a Belfast sink and a 5-ring gas hob with extractor over. In addition there is a double oven, a dishwasher, space for fridge freezer.

The large conservatory has underfloor heating, attractive arched windows on three sides festooned with blinds. This space is used for day-to-day living and casual dining. French doors open to the garden patio terrace. A cosy family room / snug is located just off the conservatory has Karndean flooring, a feature glass block wall separates from the kitchen with further wood panelled walls and a free-standing wood-burning stove. A sliding double door opens to the patio and garden.

From the entrance hall there is a suite of rooms. The principal bedroom suite comprises a dressing room, which has fitted wardrobes, shelving and a window to the side. The bedroom is an attractive double room which is carpeted, has a large sliding door to the rear garden, and a fully tiled en suite bathroom with twin vanity basins, a shower, a w.c., a heated towel rail, and a linen cupboard.

Bedroom 4 is a ground floor double bedroom, with useful space for an additional child's bed under the window, and an en suite shower room with w.c. and wash hand basin.

The main family bathroom has an attractive red roll-top claw-footed bath as its main feature. There is also a wash hand basin, a w.c. and a bidet, as well as built-in cupboards and a window to the front.

A staircase from the kitchen leads to the first floor accommodation, a useful additional space comprising 2 characterful double bedrooms with Velux windows, built-in cupboards, eaves storage. Bedroom 2 has an en suite bathroom with a bath, w.c. and wash hand basin. Bedroom 3 has a dressing room.

A mature wisteria winds across the front of the property, which has been rendered white. The memorable grey-green roof tiles are 'eco-slates' and made from recycled water bottles. The property has a double garage with access to the rear, and is fronted by a gravel driveway that has space for 4 cars, and is bordered by an ornamental flower bed. A double gate from the front leads to the rear garden.

Immediately to the rear of the property, there is an extensive patio terrace and outdoor dining is very much a part of this lifestyle home with a mature grapevine which joins the conservatory and kitchen with the sitting room. Beside this, 'The Breeze House' is an opulent circular garden room with cushioned dining space for 10, with lighting and overhead heaters.

The rear garden is expansive and has a real treasure-trove of features, with mature planting, fruit and ornamental trees, secluded plant and vegetable growing areas, water features, broad lawns and the outstanding addition of a garden annexe. This detached building sits in pride of place at the rear of the garden, painted a distinctive blue, with a covered porch and nearly 14 sq.m of wood-panelled accommodation with windows, a skylight and including a bathroom.
