Good Tuesday morning! A quirky Grade-II listed cottage tucked into the heart of the charming town of Henley-on-Thames, England.
This town is perfect in every way, almost disconcertingly so — I loved this blurb about Henley-on-Thames from the “Let’s Move to…” series from The Guardian:
It certainly is lovely here, exceedingly pretty, all wisteria-clad 18th-century tiles and freshly painted as if the Queen is about to pop by. Which she probably is. Poverty appears to have been eradicated, or at least shifted out of sight. Which is not to say you can’t find the odd, vaguely affordable patch in paradise. You could hole up there, a spy, like Orwell. Come on, we could start the revolution!
Now I am imagining a Midsomer Murders plot: A young detective from London moves to a countryside town that’s a little too perfect. Then when the annual Royal Regatta event takes place and a fugitive Russian banker turns up dead…
(I’m thinking of novel ideas since NaNoWriMo is around the corner and this would be so fun to write!)
From the listing on Savill’s:
A charming and tucked away Grade II listed cottage, believed to have been built in the 15th century which has an immense amount of character.
Upon going through the front door, you come into the sitting room which features a fantastic inglenook fireplace along with exposed timber beams. Stairs lead up to the landing where doors open to the kitchen, bedroom and shower room.
To the front there is a shared patio area which gives space for table and chairs along with a number of bedding areas.
