Christmas festival shows town centre living in all its glory
Published 26/11/12



A RARE opportunity has come up to acquire a stunning three-bedroom character home located in the heart of Henley town centre.

Percy Cottage is a beautifully presented double-fronted period home within minutes of the comprehensive amenities and facilities of Henley town centre, and has been improved and extended in a manner befitting an historic property.

The property boasts stripped doors and Amtico wood-effect flooring. Accommodation downstairs includes a cloakroom, dining room and living room; both the living room and dining room have a southerly aspect and the comfortable dining room gives access into the well fitted kitchen with natural maple wood fronted units, an integrated fridge and dishwasher, granite work surfaces, attractive flag stone flooring and access to the rear garden.

Linked to the kitchen is the utility room with a further integrated additional fridge, freezer and washing machine.

On the main landing there is loft access, an airing cupboard, three bedrooms and the attractive and stylish modern white suite family bathroom.


From the kitchen door you step outside on to a paved yard area which widens into a small patio with outside light and outside tap. There are several steps to a raised decking area with inset floor lighting, a timber garden shed and a wall with a gate providing access to a double parking area with brick paved base.

There are two pairs of timber gates providing vehicular access from West Street, as well as external lighting and fenced boundaries. The property is available through Peers and Hilton for a guide price of 599,999. For more details, call: (01491) 411066.Meanwhile, Knight Frank is offering a substantial individual Grade II-listed home with many period features reflecting its fascinating history, including timbers, unusually shaped corner shelving, wooden flooring and a number of fireplaces.

The property in Friday Street has undergone a number of reincarnations. Originally it was a malt house, then a dairy. It became an antique shop in the early 20th century and at one point in the 19th century it operated as a pub. In fact, the panelling in the two front reception rooms date from the property’s use as a public house. The larger two of the rooms features a beautiful built-in 18th century corner cabinet, parquet flooring and a large fireplace.

The timbered dining room features a fireplace and a large cupboard that may be a remnant of an earlier building. The basement was at one stage used as a pub cellar. On the first floor, there are two characterful double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room and on the top floor, two additional bedrooms which provide a superb panorama over Henley’s rooftops. Attractive 65’ southerly aspect town garden with outbuilding and mature trees and shrubs.

At one time it seems to have been part of a much larger mansion linked with other houses in the street.

Approached from the rear hall is a delightful mature south-facing and walled ) town garden with a patio area, a substantial ’ shed/workshop and a number of mature trees with a formal seating area to the rear. There is access to a side passage shared with a neighbouring house.

The property is available for a guide price of 950,000. For more details, call (01491) 844 900.
