A THREE bedroom apartment in one of the most sought-after locations in Henley town centre is now available to rent.
The apartment is at 15 Thames Side, and is newly converted and renovated. The property was previously an unoccupied residential space in a dilapidated state of repair. The conversion has optimised the views of the river and the bridge — probably some of the best views in Henley.
Ballards launched the property last night at a special open evening and it is now available to rent.
The conversion, by Mulberry Estates has taken nine months to complete with very few problems on the way. The design was inspired by the location with the open-plan sitting room-cum-kitchen making the most of the river views with a glass wall of doors designed to fold back completely, providing access on to a deck overlooking the River Thames and Henley Bridge.
There is a contemporary feel to the property with clean lines and a neutral colour palate—- but that does not mean it is lacking in character and interest.
Above the main reception room is a large mezzanine with glass balustrading. Designed as a flexible space that can be used for any purpose, it would be ideal as a TV room or library but could equally accommodate occasional guests or would work well as a study.
A spokesman for Mulberry said: “The whole property makes the most of the views, the height and light to give a spacious feeling.”
He added that he felt it was a priority to use high-quality fixtures and fittings and that storage was of paramount importance.
“You don’t want a lot of clutter with a contemporary property as it spoils the clean lines. The storage options provide practical space without detracting from the design of the individual rooms.”
Perfect for a young professional or equally flexible for a family, the property boasts three double bedrooms, all with vaulted ceilings and each with its own ensuite bathroom. Individually designed, they use quality bathroom furniture and each has its own unique identity. Some rooms are fitted with automatic Velux roof-lights which will sense if it starts to rain, closing remotely.
Although it is a tight site, work has gone smoothly throughout the whole development with special attention to keeping noise and disruption to neighbouring properties to a minimum. The insulation installed is second-to-none, ensuring a quiet environment for both the tenants of the flat and neighbours. Great attention was also paid to the technology in the property.
The spokesman said: “We have wired the flat for a Sonos system or similar while the kitchen is of a high specification with a wine cooler and full utility room including separate washer/dryer and full-height fridge-freezer with ice maker.
“The flat is in a great location to entertain so we wanted to make sure it was fully equipped to do so.”
