Description

Cherry Eyot is an exceptional contemporary property
designed by the acclaimed architect, John Pardey. Raised on
slender steel stilts offering a wealth of light and space with
elevated living rooms maximising the riverside setting off
this private road.

The property is situated in a peaceful, secluded position on
the banks of the River Loddon and St Patrick’s stream with a
2 acre garden and approximately 650 feet of unrivalled river
frontage.

A descendent of the so called “case study houses” of
the 1960s in California, Cherry Eyot won the 2006 Grand
Designs best remodelled house in Britain award. John
Pardey cites Richard Neutra as a major influence in his
designs, Neutra is considered to be among the most
important modernist architects.

An external staircase leads you up to the main entrance of
the property at first floor level. Walking through the main
entrance takes you into the centre of the house where you
are presented with panoramic views of the river and fields
beyond.

The kitchen is at the heart of the house and features
Gaggenau appliances and a range set into a centre island
with breakfast seating.

The property’s living space is extensive and very attractively
designed, comprising a more formal living and dining room
off the kitchen with a central modern fireplace and views out
over the River Loddon.

A larger double height living area is set at a half level below
the hallway with log burner, French doors and large wooden
terrace all overlooking the main lawn and with 270 degree
views of the river.

Decked balconies lead off both main living spaces and
provide wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and
river whilst offering ideal eating and entertaining space.
There are five bedrooms off the hallway all with outstanding
views and light. One of the main bedrooms has an en suite
bathroom and of the five bedrooms, three have their own
balconies. There are a further two bathrooms, one with a
stand-alone bath and the other a large walk-in shower and
all with Burgbad fixtures and fittings.

Below at ground level there is a spacious outdoor area
created by the shelter of the more formal living room
above. The area here has been raised slightly and is laid
with wooden decking interspersed with yacht standard
waterproof lights. This area features an ingenious large
built-in barbecue that shares the same chimney flue as the
formal living room above.

In addition, under the centre of the house are a wine cellar,
utility room and garden store room.

Also, at ground level and below the lower living room, is a
large concealed storage facility, ideal for kayaks, canoes and
outdoor gear etc.

Cherry Eyot has three moorings and a short distance down
the river is the Val Wyatt marina offering a comprehensive
range of boat facilities.

The pretty village of Wargrave with its own station offers
good local shopping facilities and close proximity to Henley-on-
Thames for excellent amenities, schooling and shopping.
