Take Nettlebed living for a test drive...

REMEMBER that giant pottery kiln, mentioned earlier? If you’re driving into Nettlebed from Henley, you can’t

REMEMBER that giant pottery kiln, mentioned earlier? If you’re driving into Nettlebed from Henley, you can’t miss it. And right next to it? This neutrally decorated rental property that’s currently looking for new inhabitants.

Comprising kitchen, cloakroom, two reception rooms, four bedrooms, (one with en suite), a family bathroom, double garage and mature enclosed garden, Kiln House is a property that will make it easy for you to take Nettlebed living for a test drive.

Newly decorated and with new carpets, this is a Seventies house so the proportions are large, there’s plenty of light, and there are a few quirky retro touches such as a stone-surround fireplace in the living room and a dining hatch in the dining room.

The pretty garden is a decent size for a family, too, plus the driveway can take up to two cars.

For rent with Robinson Sherston at £1,850pcm. Call (01491) 411911 for more information.

WANT to be more remote? To the east of central Nettlebed, Catslip currently has a property for sale that demonstrates great value for money.

Originally a bungalow from the Thirties, Arlanza has space aplenty for those looking for a breath of fresh country air, seeing as there is an upper floor and an attached garage which also houses a utility room.

Comprising kitchen, three to four reception rooms, three to four bedrooms, two bathrooms and boot room, the house needs a bit of updating, but it’s really the proportions and setting that are the main draw.

This is a private and tranquil spot, the gardens are large and mature, and there is a good-sized drive â— all things you simply won’t get in a town centre.

And yet the amenities of Nettlebed are still accessible.

Philip Booth, who is marketing the property, said: “Arlanza is a fabulous family home, situated in an idyllic, tucked away, semi-rural location on the southern edge of Nettlebed village.

“It’s just a stone’s throw from open countryside, with footpaths and woodland walks just metres away. The property offers deceptively spacious, flexible accommodation of over 2,000 sq ft which, at an asking price of £765,000, represents good value for money.”

Just remember, you will need some cash left over for redecoration. (See the next, albeit larger, Catslip property for an idea of what can be achieved.)

For sale with Philip Booth Esq at a price of £765,000. Call (01491) 635343 for more information.

A FINE example of a property that has been sculpted into a dream home, Yew Tree Cottage was originally a pair of 19th-century cottages.

Having been thoughtfully extended by the current owners it now makes a quality family house comprising a cloakroom, three reception rooms, a lovely kitchen, four bedrooms (one with en suite), and a family bathroom, alongside stunning gardens, great views and a very large drive.

Giles Robinson at the Henley branch of Robinson Sherston, which is marketing the property, said: “Approached over a private lane, the pictures don’t do this place justice. It’s in tip top condition â?? a bespoke kitchen with granite work surfaces has been recently fitted â?? and the house has been extended to maximise not only the accommodation, but also the views down the valley. There is also further scope to extend should it be required.”

He’s referring to the fact that the house comes with planning permission already in place for an open “cart shed-style” double garage with log store.

For sale with Robinson Sherston at a guide price of £1,495,000.
