Delivering the news from Henley on Thames and South Oxfordshire for over 100 years

5 bed Detached House


Rotherfield Greys


Beyond its well-maintained period features, the property has been sympathetically extended with the addition of a dramatic 2-storey glass and timber-framed reception space, creating a spacious open-plan dining and family room as a continuation of the high-specification kitchen.

This family home has 5 bedrooms, including the master suite - a large double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, a bathroom and a dressing area. 2 further guest bedrooms sit to the second floor above the master, and 2 double bedrooms share a family bathroom on the other side of the house.

Downstairs in the main house, beyond the open-plan kitchen / dining / family room, there is a large and cosy 'snug' with inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove, leading through to the generous sitting room, also featuring a large inglenook, and with views across the landscaped gardens. A separate utility / laundry room can be accessed from this side of the house.

The current owners have also added an appealing outdoor reception space 'The Shed' as a separate structure in the paddock area of the garden. This timber-framed building is enclosed on 3 sides, and enables al-fresco dining and seating, with light, power and the facility for an outdoor kitchen, overlooking sweeping lawn and woodland. The paddock area would be suitable for the addition of a swimming pool, subject to the usual permissions.

The property has an historic 3-car garage building in need of restoration, and the owners have received planning permission to build a separate 2-storey 3-car garage in the 'upper lawn' area of the property.

This prestigious home has 1.5 acres of mature landscaped garden, patios, lawns and a boundary fence that runs parallel with public footpaths equidistant between Henley and the well-regarded country pub, the Maltster's Arms.
