OCTOBER HOUSE: Tastefully and sympathetically converted from former stables in the late 1980s, this delightful two-bedroomed mews house was fully upgraded in 2012 and now boasts a superb new kitchen, a cloakroom/w.c., refitted stylish en suite bathroom on the ground floor, and a refitted contemporary-style en suite shower room on the first floor. The well-proportioned character home once formed part of the Harper Crewe Estate and includes a downstairs reception room and a spacious first-floor lounge. There's a private low-maintenance courtyard-style south-facing garden to the side, a small lawned garden to the front of the property and a covered two-car carport (shared with the neighbouring property). Most of the windows have been replaced with double glazed Idigbo hardwood units. All the window blinds in the property are included in the sale. The mews property enjoys a tucked-away village location and must be viewed to fully appreciate the lovely setting.
