A dream for water babes

Continue upstream a few miles and you come to the pretty village of Wargrave where The Bungalow provides one of the most exciting riverside opportunities near Henley.

The property sits in a superb position just on the edge of this popular village.

It has planning permission to create a stunning contemporary riverside home that makes the best use of this unique and special location on the River Thames.

Designed by a leading local architect the proposed new property is a striking mix of sharp lines combined with softer materials such as wood cladding and local brick.

The new property would have four ensuite bedrooms all enjoying glorious views of this most attractive stretch of the river.

The open-plan living space would be fronted with extensive areas of glass, again providing views over the lawn and of the River Thames.

An exciting addition to the plot is the private island that is accessed via an arched bridge from the mainland.

The island currently features a hard surface tennis court, tennis pavilion and several seating areas.

A small tributary runs off the main River Thames and cuts into the island leading to a small lagoon and then back out the other side of the island.

The gardens immediately in front of the proposed property offer a large frontage to the River Thames with the opportunity for ample mooring.

The plans for the house also feature a wet boathouse accessed from the property with a floating pontoon and plenty of room for a substantial launch. There used to be an extremely challenging nine-hole pitch and putt golf course located on the island.

As well as providing an excellent opportunity for buyers looking for a building project, perhaps the most important feature of this property and its location is the stunning river view, pictured right.

The property is available for a guide price of £3 million.
