A stunning riverside house with 290 ft of private mooring on the River Loddon & approximately 2.05 acres.
Loddon Manor is situated in a peaceful, secluded position on the bank of the River Loddon, on the edge of the pretty village of Wargrave, which has good local shopping facilities and a railway station providing a regular service to London Paddington Station via Twyford from 38 minutes. The market town of Henley-on Thames is 4 miles to the North and offers excellent shopping, schooling and recreational opportunities, with more comprehensive facilities available in Maidenhead and Reading.
The M4 Junction 8/9 is approximately 9 miles distant, providing easy access to London, Heathrow Airport, the West Country, and the M25 linking with the national motorway network. On the M40, Junctions 4, 5 and 6 are all around 15 miles distant
giving easy access to London, Birmingham and the North.
The area is well served for schools, including The Oratory, Bluecoat, Reading and Queen Anne's in Caversham. There are a number of fine golf courses including Temple, Henley and Hennerton. The nearby countryside offers miles of extensive walking and riding. Racing may be enjoyed at Ascot, Windsor
and Newbury and there are extensive boating facilities available on the River Thames, which is joined by the River Loddon approximately 200m downstream of the property.
A stunning riverside house with amenities and substantial Loddon frontage, Loddon Manor is a superb example of a modern country house offering classical proportions with an exceptionally high specification. Built in recent years, the property is set in beautiful gardens of approximately 2.05 acres, the house also benefits from 290 ft of private mooring on the River Loddon.
From the polished stone steps leading up to the North side of the house, the property is entered by double doors into an entrance hall and then a second set of doors into a large limestone floored hallway. To the left is a spacious open plan bespoke kitchen/ dining room with helpful additions such as an instant boiling water tap, two ovens and a microwave integrated into the wall units as well as a 4-ring gas hob on the large granite topped island unit. The utility room also benefits from units. The limestone floor continues onto a sizeable South-facing balcony using full height sets of sliding, bi-fold glazed doors. These doors are in every South-facing room in the house and provide access to balconies from two bedrooms, a bathroom and the sitting room as well as a veranda from the drawing room. Open or closed, these doors offer superb views over the grounds to the river and allow natural light to fill the rooms.
The generous, oak floored, drawing room is accessed from the hallway by double doors imported from Italy. There is a gas
fireplace with a marble mantelpiece. The bi-fold doors open almost the entire length of the room onto a wooden-decked
veranda with steps down to the lawn.
From the hallway, besides a cloakroom, there are two further
rooms, a study and a sitting room, both with oak floors. The
sitting room converts easily to a cinema with electric blinds and a remote controlled screen and projector which retract completely into the ceiling at the touch of a button. This double aspect room has a fireplace to match that of the drawing room and has the advantage of the same style of bi-fold doors leading to the balcony.
The first floor is reached from the ground floor hallway by an
impressive polished stone staircase and opens out onto a light landing with a sitting area. From the landing, the South-facing
master bedroom is entered by double doors and is attractively
appointed with fitted wardrobes and a balcony. The en-suite
bathroom is luxurious with mood-lighting, two sinks, an LED lit
glass shower screen, a bath with a flat screen television mounted at its foot (complete with waterproof remote control) and mirrors which light up automatically at the wave of a hand. These mirrors are in every bathroom and cloakroom and every bath benefits from a similar television.
A further South-facing bedroom with bi-fold doors to a balcony
has a stunning starlight effect made from many small lights
recessed into its vaulted ceiling and an en-suite bathroom. A double aspect guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room
and two further bedrooms share one en-suite bathroom with a
whirlpool bath. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and oak floors and all bathrooms have porcelain tiled floors.
Loddon Manor is approached from Loddon Lane via a gravel driveway lined by mature oak trees. It leads to two large gravelled areas with a double carport placed to the West of the house. To the East of the house is a wooden pool house with a leaded roof and a swimming pool with a retractable roof, aided by a geothermic water heating device. The garden, which is mostly laid to lawn, is interspersed with mature trees, herbaceous borders and holds a mature blue and white Wisteria as a focal point on a freestanding arbour near to the house. An all weather tennis court is positioned to the South of the house close to the river. There is approximately 290 feet of River
Loddon frontage with a piled landing stage and a private slipway. Established trees, hedges and shrubs enclose the gardens providing privacy and seclusion.
An imported French pagoda and a York stone paved area provide two excellent sitting areas to enjoy the gardens at each end of the river frontage.
