A wonderful opportunity to purchase this character cottage with centuries old origins originally forming part of the surrounding Hunts Farm. The cottage was substantially upgraded by the present owners approximately 5 years ago.
Entering from the rear, vaulted character fitted kitchen with exposed ceiling and wall timbers and wide stripped floor boards that lead into a bright triple aspect dining room with French doors out on to the terrace and gardens. A hallway leads off the kitchen/dining area with exposed wall and ceiling timbers and provides access to the character two reception rooms, one with wood burning stove set in an inglenook and access to the front lobby area, family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and staircase to first floor landing.
On the landing, small bureau area with door and stairs leading to a well sized attic with skylight. The two bedrooms have exposed wall and ceiling timbers and storage facilities, the master bedroom benefiting from an en-suite w.c. with wash hand basin.
The property is approached via a 5 bar gate with generous shingled driveway.
An attractive terrace runs immediately adjacent to the front, side and rear with distinct areas, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The formal garden (circa 140' x 55)' provides the perfect continuation of the rear terrace area with the paddock and mature orchard area with apple trees set to its front and sides.
From the river bridge in Henley, turn left along Thameside, continuing along by the river. Follow the road round into Station Road and at the main traffic lights turn left into Reading Road. Continue to the first mini roundabout and take the second exit into Harpsden Road. Continue out of Henley and through Harpsden Village. The property will be found on the right opposite 'The Elms' and behind the Hunts Farm yard.
