We don’t know a great deal about this place despite some searching around. So we’ll simply run with the The Boathouse 1960s modernist property in Dorney Reach, Maidenhead, Berkshire. Big thanks to Christian for the spot.
The Boathouse is definitely the name, modernist the style and 1960s probably the era. It’s a house well maintained, but seemingly unchanged from its original design, both in terms of layout and general finish. A big plus for us.
Location is likely to be a selling point too. This place is positioned at the end of a private road on the banks of the River Thames, with the house taking full advantage of it. According to the agent, most rooms have extensive and even triple aspect views of the River Thames.
But the house, as ever, is the star for us. Extensive glazing, wood cladding and a wonderfully open interior. That includes a galleried drawing / family room that overlooks the dining hall, featuring what we imagine is the original sunken seating area.
The dining room below benefits from the double height ceiling and it is just one of five reception spaces here. There are also four bedrooms and two bathrooms within the 2,800 sq. ft. of accommodation.
Go beyond the four walls is the garden of course. At the front, you’ll find lawn, plants and trees, with the rear offering more of the same along with an outdoor swimming pool and access to the River Thames towpath.
£1,500,000 is the guide price.
