A ‘magical’ River Thames island home complete with its very own boathouse and private mooring is on sale in Marlow with a guide price of £2m.

Set within picturesque gardens which lead directly to the water, The Rosary on Lock Island off Mill Road is accessible on foot through the lock gates, with a double garage and driveway on the mainland.

Built in the 1970s, the detached three-bedroom property comprises an internal hallway leading to a kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room and snug, a formal dining room, sitting room and sun room.

The bedrooms are located together and include a large double with access to the sun room which could make an additional reception room, a bedroom with en suite shower room and a further double. There is also a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom with WC.

The detached boat house has a mooring below, while a first-floor space is currently used as an office.

Surrounded by mature gardens featuring tall trees and several well-established flowerbeds, there is also a second walled garden facing inward to the island, offering a private space for entertaining.

Selling agent Richard Maby, head of office at Savills Marlow, said: “Lock Island is a small, pretty island – just downstream from Marlow’s iconic suspension bridge. I love visiting because it’s a wonderful part of town, providing a feeling of being perpetually on holiday while also incredibly close to lots of amenities.

“The Rosary is a fantastically private home, with privileged access to the river via its own mooring and wide riverbank complemented by captivating southerly views over the water, countryside and the magnificent properties on the opposite bank of The Thames. It’s a magical setting.

“The property is one of just a small number and its generously proportioned spaces for entertaining and a flexible floorplan allow for a variety of options for bedrooms and living areas, while there is also scope to remodel or decorate to suit the needs and tastes of the new owner. Some of the original homes on the island have been subjected to greater alteration with some entirely rebuilt in recent times.

“The detached garage and driveway mean that you can enjoy the island lifestyle while retaining the convenience of parking within the town centre. Unsurprisingly, the area is also particularly well regarded for its sailing, with the sailing club at Bourne End within easy reach.”
