Description

Part of the unique Laureate Gardens development located in the centre of Henley on Thames, this two bedroom apartment has two bathrooms, an open plan living and dining room with separate galley kitchen and a private outdoor space.

Local information
Internationally renowned for its annual regatta, the delightful market town of Henley-on-Thames is a sublime setting for relaxed living. Poised on one of the River Thames’ most beautiful reaches, with a bustling market square and picturesque 18th century Grade I listed bridge, the streets are lined with an eclectic range of bijou boutiques and independent, specialist shops, while the nearby Waitrose (within 300 metres of Laureate Gardens) offers all your daily necessities and more.

There are innumerable opportunities to while away an afternoon: Art galleries, antiques emporia and the award-winning River and Rowing Museum to name but a few. Stroll along the Thames Path, cruise the river, play a round of golf at one of the area’s many excellent courses, or simply enjoy the ambience of this affluent and relaxed setting. Laureate Gardens offers a lifestyle of abundant choice and opportunity.
Tennyson house
With its striking brick detail and quaint original paired ‘boys and girls’ entrances and staircases, Tennyson House looks the epitome of a mid-Victorian school house. Built in 1871 - 1872, it was designed to provide an education facility for local children.

Today, Tennyson House is home to a collection of just eight highly desirable and roomy two bedroom apartments. With gardens and private outside areas on the ground floor, and balconies to two first floor apartments, the high ceilings, generous proportions and impressive entrance halls create a very favourable, light-filled, living environment.
