Built in 2000,15 River Gardens is a striking contemporary home both inside and out. The house benefits from both thermal and photovoltaic solar panels which help to heat the hot water and power the house, with fabulous environmental and financial merits. The design of the glass frontage allows for plenty of light, and this has been maximised in careful arrangement of the principal reception rooms. The sitting room lies to the front of the
ground floor with large glazed doors opening onto the front garden. To the first floor is the fabulous and generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, newly fitted in 2010 with Corian work surfaces, an AEG oven and induction hob, and the whole space benefits from enviable views over the river and countryside beyond. To the second floor is a unique mezzanine master bedroom with stylish en-suite shower room. The mezzanine also allows for this room to take full advantage of the views. There are three further bedrooms in the property (one with en-suite shower room), a spacious reception hall, cloakroom and large family bathroom. The house is light and airy, and the modern design provides flexible living space amidst a very desirable location.
15 River Gardens is set down a quiet lane which runs along the river in the village of Purley-on-Thames. The village offers a good range of facilities with a village shop, post office and Primary School.
Just over two miles away is a Waitrose in Tilehurst, and there are more comprehensive daily amenities in the Thameside village of Pangbourne including a petrol station, cheese shop, organic food shop, doctors and dental surgeries, hardware shop and station.
The M4 (J12) is about 5 miles away and provides vehicular access to the West Country, London and its airports.
The local area is served by a first class range of schooling and recreational facilities for all requirements and the surrounding area is renowned for its walks and rides.
The house is approached down a no-through road which runs along the river. To the rear of the property is a large area of hard standing, providing parking for a number of vehicles. The garden lies to the front of the house and is mainly laid to lawn with a small picket fence surrounding it. There are raised vegetable patches neatly arranged to either side of the lawn/path, and a large raised deck sits off the sitting room, allowing for the doors to be opened out and the living space to flow seamlessly between house and gardens.
There is also a large storage area, accessed via wooden doors off the driveway, which lies underneath the house
