Cottage has cornered the market in home comforts


Cottage has cornered the market in home comforts

UP the Thames at Moulsford, this detached period cottage from the 1600s is just lovely if you’re a fan of Grade II-listed character but need your home comforts too.

On a pretty lane of just four properties, Mead Corner has undergone tasteful and thorough restoration and modernisation.

The kitchen is spacious with a vaulted ceiling and fitted with a large modern cooking range, and the attached barn has been attractively converted into accommodation with a study, a bedroom, en suite bathroom and a family room.

The large south-west facing garden with its swimming pool and barbecue area are quite a big draw — as is the drawing room with its restored flooring in terracotta tiles (probably Victorian), and lovely inglenook fireplace with bread ovens and a wood-burning stove.

The oak-floored sitting room also has a fine open fire, as does the master bedroom, which is very pretty. (It lacks an en suite, but Standard Property thinks this would be an easy fix.)

Special mention has to be given to the fact that the house has lots of windows giving lots of precious light, and the generally decent ceiling heights throughout — unusual for a property of this age.

What’s more, the renowned Beetle & Wedge Thames-side boathouse restaurant and access on to the Thames Path are but a short walk away.

A very yummy property indeed.
