‘Modern cottage’ off Bell Street is so ap-peal-ing

THIS “modern cottage” in Bell Street Mews, a small gated development in the heart of Henley, is quite a gem of a find, writes Lucy Boon.
Situated on the town’s main shopping street, but in a quite off-the-track hidden location — with parking! — this is a house that is desirable for multiple reasons.
First of all, the upstairs has two good-sized double bedrooms and two bathrooms to go with them (the master bedroom even has a walk-in dressing area).
Second, there are two lovely sized reception rooms, one of which has a fire.
Third, the sitting room opens out on to the pretty courtyard garden thanks to French doors, as does the kitchen which is also at the back.
And fourth, this is the end of a small terrace, so there’s a handy lean-to storage room, which also gives you side access to the garden.
The property interior may be a little tired, so new owners may want to update the kitchen and bathroom furniture. But everything is in very decent shape so you can move straight in and decide later if you think this is even worth doing.
Of course, the piÃ¨ce de résistance has to be allocated off-street parking, which is accessed directly from Bell Street.
