Is this the most expensive house currently on the market in Henley?
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.
