Is this the most expensive house currently on the market in Henley?
Published 17/02/14

IF you have a cool few million to spare, this is probably the most expensive home on the market in Henley at the moment — Normanstead House, available through Knight Frank.

One of the finest residences in the area, the property provides well-proportioned accommodation, period charm and the convenience of being within walking distance of the town centre — yet at the same time it is remarkably secluded in a tranquil backwater.

Dating from the 19th century the property maintains many of its original features, including ornate cornicing and grand fireplaces. Of particular note are the sash windows throughout, providing an abundance of natural light.

The grand entrance hall leads through to the spacious drawing room replete with high ceilings and sash windows with original shutters. Along with the sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room, all these southerly principal reception rooms enjoy views over the manicured lawn and herbaceous borders.

The dining room, library/study and family room provide grand accommodation to relax and entertain in, complemented with excellent practical space in the form of a utility room and office. A substantial and very dry cellar comprises a store room, wine store, games room and bar.

The first floor accommodation is tremendously versatile offering a generous master bedroom suite, dressing room and bathroom, complemented by six further bedrooms, four bathrooms and a kitchen.

The self-contained annexe provides useful accommodation, with a separate entrance and a link to the main house. This comprises a kitchen, shower room, bedroom and large garden room opening out onto the terrace and garden, ideal for entertaining.

The newly-built heated indoor swimming pool, with shower room and gym, opens out onto the surrounding garden with three sets of bi-folding doors. A recently built four-bay garage benefits from a full-height first floor that stretches the whole length providing ample storage with enormous potential for additional accommodation subject to the usual consents. In addition there is a state-of-the-art greenhouse and gardener’s store.

A York stone terrace surrounds the property leading to the formal gardens to the rear which enjoys a southerly aspect. Adjacent to the indoor pool is a delightful crucible garden. Well-stocked herbaceous borders surround a manicured lawn featuring a splendid cedar tree. A tennis court occupies the south-west corner.

The property is available through Knight Frank with price on application. For more details, call (01491) 844900.
