The River House
The main open-plan living space is flooded by plenty of natural light, with thanks to the contemporary glass architecture.
Large inviting white sofas frame a sleek glass coffee table. They are positioned so, to make a centre point of focus of the impressive fireplace. The industrial-style flume appears to float down from the high ceilings above.
A smart glass-framed structure extension makes this home feel like a piece of modern art sat on the riverbank. Just imagine sitting on that sofa with your feet up, watching the world float by.
A great spot incidently, if you're an artist and love to paint.
The bespoke kitchen boasts numerous high spec appliances, including an Aga.
The open-plan area features a generous dining table, able to seat up to 12 diners – ideal for hosting post Regatta parties.
Clean white walls create a blissfully serene space in which to drift off in no time.
The balcony terrace provides the perfect spot to kick-back with a glass of something chilled – watching the ships sail by.
This incredible house is currently in the market with agents Savills, with an asking price of £4,950,000.
