Agents’ property picks — to buy and to rent



Price: £1,250,000 with Knight Frank. Call (01491) 844900.

Description: Originally two ageing stables, The Old Stabling is a fine example of a stylish, contemporary conversion with a bit of character.

This 1,733 sq ft delight is close to the town centre, and a flat five-minute walk to the shops (it will take about 15 minutes to the train station).

Vaulted ceilings and Juliet balconies bring in lots of natural light. The master suite has a walk-in dressing area. The living areas have underfloor heating. There’s a wood-burning stove in the sitting room with three sets of double doors to the garden terrace and the gorgeous kitchen has been given marble work surfaces and Shaker-style units to match the style of the building.

There are two gardens — a landscaped lawn at the front, and a rear walled garden which houses a separate store building.

There is also a single garage, attached to the house, which opens on to a gravel driveway, offering plenty of parking.

Breakdown: Period conversion, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms, luxury kitchen, downstairs WC, wood-burning stove, two gardens, garage plus store, drive with electric gate, ample parking, walkable to town centre and train station.

Location: The north-western edge of Henley. Those who live here know it for its appealing riverside market town charm.

With a theatre, cinema, shopping, restaurants, community hospital, excellent schools and so much more.

Other plusses are that it is close to both the M4 and M40, and has a good train service to London Paddington in 50 minutes.


To rent: £1,575pcm with Mullie. Call 0118 934 2470.

Description: Mill Wheel Cottage is a wonderful three-bedroom Grade II listed attached property with light and spacious living accommodation. The large reception room has a working fireplace, and there are views over Thames tributary the River Loddon. Another feature is the surrounding attractive garden. Available immediately.

Breakdown: Character listed cottage, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen/diner, utility room, outside parking for two cars. Not really suitable for young children but pets will be considered.

Location: Semi-rural Hurst is close enough to Twyford for commuting via train (and in the future, Crossrail) but far enough away to have a village feel and identity. The village hall is the venue for a number of cultural events.
