Ferry House With A Twist


The remarkable Ferry House, a four-bedroom residence gracefully positioned on the banks of the River Thames, offering over 3700 square feet of space, has been bought to market by my leading estate agency DEXTERS. With a rich history, even mentioned in one of Dickens’ most famous novel, Oliver Twist, sweeping riverside views and its very own private mooring, the property is available for £2,250,000.

Nestled in the centre of Sunbury village and on a beautiful section of the River Thames, Ferry House was once used to house the Sunbury ferry, owned by one of the longest-established businesses in Sunbury. Serving not only as a functional conduit but also as a notable village landmark, the Ferry House's significance is underscored by its mention in Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist. In Chapter 21 of the book, Dickens vividly describes the scene: "As they passed Sunbury Church, the clock struck seven. There was a light in the ferry-house window opposite which streamed across the road and threw into more sombre shadow a dark yew tree with graves beneath it."

In more recent years, this exceptional property has undergone a remarkable refurbishment, transitioning from its original role as a boat house to emerge as a stunning waterside haven. The ground floor unveils two en-suite bedrooms, a versatile study that could easily serve as a fifth bedroom, a spacious utility room, guest WC, garage, and a coveted boathouse that opens onto the tranquil dock. The boathouse could easily be transformed for a variety of uses, including an office or even an art studio, with the river just outside providing the perfect backdrop.

On the first floor, a beautifully renovated open-plan reception, kitchen, and dining area providing a lofty vaulted ceiling adorned with skylights awaits. This exceptional living space seamlessly extends to an outdoor terrace, offering panoramic river views and space for outdoor furniture. The principal bedroom suite is a haven of comfort, graced with a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom, and access to a wraparound balcony which offers picturesque river views. An additional double bedroom and a family bathroom complete the second level.

The rear of the property reveals a captivating patio garden, offering a serene oasis that leads to the River Thames and a private 45ft mooring- perfect for water enthusiasts.

The historic and picturesque Thameside village of Sunbury-on-Thames is renowned for its pubs, shops, fine selection of restaurants and listed buildings. Sunbury also benefits from its many green spaces, parks, and the walled garden which is popular with visitors. There is an abundance of leisure activities in the area with a number of health clubs, golf courses, markets and the nearby Kempton Park Racecourse. The property has easy access to London, with train connections into London Waterloo station in 45 minutes, and Richmond only a 25-minute drive away.

Nick Wozniak, Director of Dexters’ Sunbury Office says: "With its rich heritage, commanding riverside vistas, and a private mooring, the Ferry House stands as a true masterpiece. For numerous years, this exceptionally distinctive property has held its place as a prominent landmark in the village. Today, it has undergone meticulous renovations, transforming into a waterside retreat that presents a truly rare living opportunity”.

The property on Thames Street is available to buy for £2.25million.
