Home with ‘the best view of Hambleden Valley’

A RARE opportunity has become available to purchase a spacious bungalow with stunning views set in the idyllic Hambleden Valley.

A RARE opportunity has become available to purchase a spacious bungalow with stunning views set in the idyllic Hambleden Valley.

Accommodation in Lower Mead at Pheasants Ridge includes a drawing room with open fire, dining/family room, conservatory, kitchen and utility room, a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and cloakroom.

Constructed of brick under a tiled roof in the late Sixties the property is well screened from neighbours and the road. This charming bungalow is bright and spacious and offers flexible accommodation with its three reception areas which afford beautiful and far-reaching views, with a South Westerly aspect, over the valley and beyond.

The current owner has lived there for 14 years and admits that when she bought it she never thought she would leave. Now no longer able to drive, she feels like she needs a more centrally located home — but she admitted that believing she has “the best view in the valley” it will be a real wrench.

“It was the views that caught my attention first but the property has also been wonderful to live in,” she said. “The flow of rooms feels very natural and the large windows let lots of natural light in and enables you to see all the wonderful vistas.

“Even now I catch my breath when I glimpse a view through a window.”

The dining room, sitting room and master bedroom are all positioned to make the most of the views which are further enhanced by the owner’s green fingers which have turned the surrounding gardens into a work of art.

The property has needed little work structurally over the years but the owner has maintained its decorative order with a palate of neutral colours which work well with a traditional or contemporary style. However the kitchen was recently updated with high-quality cabinetry and offers a stylish yet practical layout.

Opting for a more central Henley location, the owner admitted that her neighbours have been fantastic over the years with everyone looking out for each other, creating a real sense of community.

The property is approached over a tarmac drive with a parking and turning area leading to a double garage with steps down to the solid wood front door with glazed panels to either side with outside light.

“Lower Mead has given me a wonderful home and some wonderful memories.

“It has offered plenty of space for when my five children have come to visit and I will miss it very much, but it will hopefully provide another family with some equally happy memories.”

The property is available through Robinson Sherston, price on application. For more details, call (01491) 411911.
