‘Lights... camera... action!’

MUCH like Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, you’ll find peace in a character house such as The Old Bakery, which has more room than Kate’s cottage, having three bedrooms instead of one, plus a separate one-bedroom annexe

MUCH like Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, you’ll find peace in a character house such as The Old Bakery, which has more room than Kate’s cottage, having three bedrooms instead of one, plus a separate one-bedroom annexe

And just like Kate’s, this is full of character and charm with beamed ceilings and latch doors.

So it will come as no surprise to hear that this property has starred in many films over the years, including

The Witches
,



The Avengers
(the Ralph Fiennes one) and also some scenes in

101 Dalmatians
.

To rent with Hamptons International for around £3,000pcm plus fees. Call (01491) 693783 for more information. Joint agent with Knight Frank.

REMEMBER the scene where Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) gets run off the road into a duck pond by Caractacus Potts?

We have to be talking about iconic 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was filmed in and around Hambleden, with the duck pond scene shot in the pretty hamlet of Russell’s Water — the location of Goddards House.

A three-bedroom brick and flint cottage, the property adjoins and overlooks the village green with its picturesque pond, and the cottage is deceptively spacious as well as scrumptious.

For sale with Savills at a guide price of £750,000. Call (01491) 843000 for more information. Joint agent with Knight Frank.

Although Upper Thorpe was built back in 1961, you’d never know it to look at it.

Completely re-modelled and extended in 2009, the current owners have created not only a very comfortable, spacious and stylish home of some 2,300 sq ft, but a statement in modern living with a superb open plan kitchen/living area and three luxurious en suite bedrooms.

For sale with Jackson-Stops & Staff at a guide price of £1,100,000. Call (01491) 871111 for more information.



This gorgeous character semi-detached house used to be the village schoolhouse, so it’s had a good education.

Hurley resident Rita Marks said: “It was used as a school, probably until the mid-Thirties when it the school was closed and the gate house was converted to a residence.”

Constructed of brick and flint, The Gatehouse has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a garage for parking and a courtyard garden. Most importantly, it’s located in the stunning riverside village of Hurley, downstream from Henley.

Charlotte Mellor, lettings manager at Romans, said: “Within walking distance of the River Thames, properties available in this location tend to be snapped up quickly, so we highly recommend booking a viewing as soon as possible.”

To let with Romans for £2,950pcm plus fees. Call (01491) 412999 for more information.
