This recently remodelled townhouse is part of a gated riverside development a few hundred yards from Marlow High Street and half a mile from the station.

You can sit on the balcony and watch boats and ducks bob past but if you suddenly remember something you’ve forgotten to buy at the shops or you need to collect a guest off the train you can be there and back in no time, long before the sun is over the yard arm.

The rooms are spread over three floors.

The recent upgrade included the open plan kitchen/dining area with Amtico floor running from front to back of the house at entrance level.

The room opens onto a veranda at the dining end.

At the top of a short flight of stairs off the kitchen you’ll find the sitting room with wall to wall full height windows which open onto a balcony.

Also on this level is the master suite.

Up another short flight of stairs are three more bedrooms and the main bathroom.

Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been refitted.

The house has also been redecorated throughout. You could move in and enjoy it from day one.

The development includes allocated parking for residents and visitors and communal gardens that lead to the river.

Buy this and you wouldn’t need to spend hours in an airport waiting for a flight to take you to a distant destination which might turn out to be not half as good as where you live.

Thirty five Rivermead Court in the beautiful Marlow Bridge Lane is for sale through Ballards in the High Street with a guide price of £895,000.
