Unusual chance to buy a real countryside cottage
Published 10/02/14

THE Cottage is perched in an elevated setting on the edge of Pheasants Hill. There is a pleasant outlook over neighbouring farmland from several rooms and with outstanding views from parts of the formal garden over the Hambleden Valley. The Cottage feels connected to the village but is equally a genuinely country setting.

The Cottage is a brick-and-flint period cottage that over the last 10 years has been subject to considerable care, attention and investment by the current owners, who have created a very stylish and superbly presented interior to complement the character that exists both inside and out.

There is a flagstone terrace in front of the cottage to enjoy the evening sunshine, and the gardens behind the cottage rise to steps, terraces and lawns which offer great privacy and wonderful views in a south and westerly direction over the valley. The Cottage is a genuine family house, but would equally suit weekend or second home use, and has good access to London. Internally there is wonderful joinery, and special features include a superbly-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Aga opening into a contemporary glazed dining area, leading to an enclosed brick-and-flint walled patio with built-in pizza oven.

The principal reception rooms look south over the valley, and the part-subterranean cinema/games room leads to the integral double garage. There is access to a terrace and a garden from a small footbridge leading from the master bedroom.

The master bedroom suite is beautifully appointed and, whilst originally a five-bedroom cottage, on the first floor the fifth bedroom has been turned into an ensuite dressing room.

The gardens offer great character and variety, and immediately behind the cottage are steps which rise towards the garden boundary at the rear, from which there are fantastic views.

The terraces provide alfresco dining and barbecue areas, and connect to the private lawned part of the garden. .

Nick Warner, a director at Savills in Henley, said: “Patience is a virtue — and one most certainly required for finding a dream home in the Hambleden Valley. Often a prized location but, because of the scarcity and lack of turnover, one where finding a home is often incredibly difficult.

“The reason? Arguably the best rural setting west of London, within 45 minutes of the West End, and between the beautiful and aspirational prime riverside towns of Henley and Marlow.”

The property was due to be launched this week by Savills for a guide price of 1,950,000. For more details, call (01491) 843000.
