Lovely house, lovely location, which is why this 1970s Oxford Architects Partnership-designed midcentury property in Cleave Court, Streatley-on-Thames, Berkshire is so appealing.
The property is perhaps a little more recent than you might think, but not by much, dating back to 1972 and found in what is described as ‘a stunning parkland setting’.
Obviously not a house on its own, this place is found at Cleeve Court, which is a private development of 11 houses, all of which share some wonderful communal gardens covering around 10 acres. Residents apparently are a mix of prime and second home owners, but we suspect the price of this house means it is likely to be picked up by the former.
If that includes you, then you will be interested to know that this place is packed with originality. Not entirely, with the kitchen modernised and looking around, the bedrooms too.
But the double-height living room is definitely a draw when it comes to original features, complete with original brick and timber detailing, including the hearth and built-in bench. Check out that staircase too.
Also on this floor is a bedroom / study, along with a shower room. Above the living room, you’ll find a mezzanine area with access to a kitchen / breakfast room and a further room which can be used as a dining room or additional bedroom. On the lower ground floor are two more bedrooms and a family bathroom.
As we said, access to the communal space outside too, not to mention a 30ft mooring in a private inlet, should you like to mess about on the river. You access the development via a long private road through fields, with the site also surrounded by water meadows and farmland. Talking of a car, you go get your own garage and designated parking space.
If all of that appeals, the asking price is £595,000.
