A bird's-eye view of Laureate Gardens
Exploring the buildings
Whether you're looking for character from a former school house, a cosy cottage feel or the clean sleek lines of a new build, Laureate Gardens has something to offer everyone. Take a look at the buildings that make up this lovely development below:
With its striking brick detailing 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 favourable, light-filled living environment.
Centred around an exquisite 18th Century south-facing courtyard and with an elegant arcaded main façade, Wordsworth Court now offers a choice of 15 spacious two and three bedroom homes within the lovingly restored Grade II buildings.
Each different from its neighbour, these new homes have been designed to follow the 'grain' and unique features of the original structure with some offering French Doors that open onto privately-owned gardens and others with charming views down to the Thames Valley.
The centre piece is The Masters Office with its stunning semi-octagonal bay window, overlooking a mature southerly facing terraced garden with a large lawn framed by trees.
Masefield House has been designed to take town centre living to an entirely new level; an inspired selection of just eight luxury apartments. Each new home is lift-accessible and comes with allocated spaces in the adjacent underground parking to provide total piece of mind.
Flooded with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, the open plan interiors have been considered carefully to optimise luxury and style, creating spacious, comfortable settings for entertaining or relaxing in. The two duplex penthouse apartments boast spectacular rooftop sky lounges with 15 metre glass enclosed rooms, offering unparalleled views across the historic rooftops of Henley-on-Thames towards the River Thames.
