Gemma thinks:
The proximity to Marlow High Street and all it's wonderful shops and restaurants is perfect

A sanctuary in the centre of town that you created from a blank canvas, the place that you stamped your style on room by room, the space that began as a world of possibility and ended up as all yours. Welcome to 19 Rookery Court.

Gemma loves:
The potential in the property to create a stunning home

Situated in a cul-de-sac location just a stone’s throw from the town centre, this incredible opportunity of a house, with three bedrooms, a large central living space with balcony and a home office on the ground floor, is ready for you to stamp your mark on.

Laid to the front of the property is wraparound brick paving which provides ample parking for two cars as well as a coherent pathway to the external garden gate at the side of the house. The front door space, nestled underneath an integral porchway, is currently predominantly glass; a feature that could either be enhanced or altered according to your preference.

Situated on the ground floor and with access directly into the garden, the utility room is perfectly positioned for both clean laundry and muddy dogs alike. The home office boasts large sliding doors directly into the garden and, with a handy downstairs cloakroom as well, this floor of the house is both practical and functional.

Walking up the stairs and into the central floor is where the heart of this house truly beats. If light and airy is what you’re looking for, then look no further, you’ve found it! The front aspect not only embodies larger than life double glazed windows which bathe the space in natural light but, with french doors leading out onto the balcony, you can step outside and bask in the sunshine too. For the chef who prefers to create culinary delights independently, the kitchen space is well appointed and separate; for the host who prefers to create a buzz, the dining space opens into the living room.

The second floor is your space to retreat. Here you’ll find three bedrooms, the family bathroom and more leafy views out across the central green. The principal and second bedrooms are crisp, blank spaces which are ready and ripe for your personal touch. The third bedroom, whilst currently being utilised as a second office space, could happily be transformed into a nursery, dressing room, snug or hobby space. Crafting room, anyone?

All the beauty of the morning sun can be captured in the east facing garden, the perfect suntrap for your morning coffee. Laid to paving, the garden is a low maintenance space but, with a red-brick wall at the bottom and greenery in raised beds throughout, it still feels full of life and interest.

19 Rookery Close is a rare find. A town centre house that is both blank canvas and potential as well as ready to go. This is a house you can either live in and get to know as you slowly turn it into the home you desire, or one you can leap into as a project and devour all in one go. There is so much scope in this house: scope to extend (STPP), remodel, redecorate, reimagine. This is a house you can truly turn into your own, unique home.


Friendly vibes


Marlow is one of the original down-from-Londoners’ honeypots. Something about its pretty historic streets, and the dreaminess of the Thames hung heavy with weeping willows and boat clubs, has for centuries pulled in those sick of the Smoke – like Percy and Mary Shelley, probably after peace, quiet and a better work-life balance than they could get in the capital, with its streets running with ordure and don’t even talk to me about the cost of barouche-landaus. Legions have followed ever since.

The river is a big draw for legendary Olympians and mere mortals alike. — you may see Sir Steve Redgrave wandering along the banks watching the eager weekend rowers, paddle boarders and boaters. There’s a winning food scene led by Tom Kerridge’s Hand and Flowers, the only UK pub with two Michelin stars, and popular year-round events including the Marlow Regatta and Pub in the Park.

Marlow is unquestionably well heeled. Smart residents have an array of places to be seen and to see each other. The High Street is buzzing and the schools are sought after. There are sports clubs to join, parks to play in, bookshops to browse around and numerous places to buy champagne. Yes, this is a bustling town, yet you’re also in the heavenly walking territory of the Chiltern Hills where you can dare to get your Le Chameaus muddy.

If you’re concerned about schooling, Marlow has it covered. Sir William Borlase is a grammar school right in the centre of town and is renowned for its excellent education, along with Great Marlow School. The primary schools (Spinfield, Danesfield etc…) all have fantastic reputations along with the fine selection of public schools in the area.

Idyllic & postcard pretty
