A striking first floor apartment offering splendid river views, forming part of an elegant one-time country house set in beautifully landscaped gardens of approximately five acres.
The property has been designed to take advantage of its wonderful surrounding, with windows from each room enjoying a southerly aspect over the River Thames, gardens and across open farmland to Wittenham Clumps.
The accommodation has been upgraded/modernised throughout and features high ceilings combined with well-proportioned rooms. A communal entrance hall is shared with just one other apartment and the actual front door opens to a useful private lobby with staircase rising to the first floor. The sitting/dining room has windows to two aspects, a box bay window with window seat and stunning views. Furthermore there is a re-fitted kitchen which offers a good degree of storage and incorporates a built in fridge/freezer, dish washer, washer dryer, electric oven and induction hob with extractor over. In addition there is a double bedroom with sizeable built in wardrobes and a stylish shower room.
The manor house is approached via a sweeping, gated driveway flanked by attractive grounds with mature trees. Further benefits include a replacement gas fired boiler, private garage, ample parking, use of a tennis court, shared mooring and direct access to the River Thames.
