Description
Beautifully presented contemporary house in a spectacular position overlooking the River Thames, with 4 moorings.

Location

Temple House is located in beautiful rolling Chiltern Hills countryside close to the fashionable market town of Marlow. The house is situated on the edge of the hamlet of Temple with its grounds running down to the River Thames. The house is only 2 miles from Marlow, 8.5 miles from Henley-on-Thames and 32 miles from the City of Oxford. All three centres offer excellent shopping and recreational facilities. The property is conveniently located for road links being only 5 miles from junction 8/9 of the M4 and 5.5 miles to junction 4 of the M40.

Excellent local schools are numerous and include The Oratory, Moulsford, Cranford House, Chandlings Manor, St. Mary’s, Ascot, St. George’s, Papplewick, Eton College, ACS (American Community School)Egham. Plus a wide choice of Oxford and Abingdon schools including The Dragon, Cothill, Headington, St. Edwards (Oxford) and Radley. Wickham Abbey is also within easy reach.

Racing is at Newbury, Ascot andWindsor, rowing at Henley and along the Thames. There is beautiful walking and riding on many of the local bridleways and footpaths in the area over the Chiltern Hills. The closest theatres are the Kenton Theatre in Henley-on-Thames or at any of the six theatres in Oxford.

Temple House was built in 2006 to the highest specification and commands what must be one of the best riverside locations for a newly constructed house in Buckinghamshire. The property is ideally set back from the river and surrounded by lightly wooded landscaped gardens and pleasant Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire countryside. The house is approached through the electric double entrance gates. The drive sweeps up to a turning circle at the front of the house adjacent to a large ornamental lake. Very few properties can boast good quality mooring on the River Thames. Temple House has the benefit of two pontoons (for four boats) and further pontoons can be available from Temple Marina adjoining which is also owned by the vendor.

GROUND FLOOR
Impressive double height entrance lobby leading to the drawing room which is decorated in a contemporary style, and the off lying river room. The dining room overlooks the garden and the study overlooks the lake. The kitchen / breakfast room is open plan and opens into a conservatory which is used as a sitting room. Off this lies the family room and utility areas beyond.

FIRST FLOOR
Master bedroom suite, with en suite bathroom, dressing room and two walk-in wardrobes, one at a mezzanine level, accessed via a glass staircase. The bedroom leads out to a private balcony with wonderful views of the river. There are five additional bedroom suites all with en suite bath/shower rooms which are all decorated in a contemporary style. The sixth bedroom suite would be ideal for use as staff accommodation.

LOWER GROUND FLOOR
This floor is devoted entirely to entertainment facilities of impressive specification. These include a bar/entertaining area, a superb indoor swimming pool hall with steam room, changing room, and an exceptional billiard room with cinema beyond.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The house is approached over an impressive private carriage drive through large electric wooden gates monitored by CCTV. The drive sweeps round to the front of the house past a lake with gentle waterfall, which is surrounded by lightly wooded grounds. To the rear of the house there is a large terrace area ideal for entertaining, a tennis court, an ‘old game larder’ which acts as a gymnasium. The garden has direct access to two pontoons on the river ideal for boating excursions on the Thames. Further pontoons are available separately.
