First look: Property Flirt in Towersey

We love unique properties on Muddy, but this eclectic, artistic 3-bed in near Thame takes the biscuit! Not even on the market yet, we're giving you the chance for an early viewing, Muddy style! Have a gander, and go on, guess the price.

It’s always fun when you can see a previous owner’s design influence on a property – but this is something else! Come and have a nose around this gorgeous brick and timber 3-bedroom detached house in Towersey near Thame, the former famly home of a designer, artist and collector. We’re giving you an exclusive Muddy sneak peek as it’s not even on the market yet! Guess the price, and hey, you at the back, no cheating.

OK fact fans, what have we here? The Torrens is a 1900s character property. heavily influenced by the style of the late eighteenth century and stuffed with original features and eclectic styling. Squirrelled away in a conservation area in Towersey near Thame, the village is home to a pretty green, the picturesque St Catherine’s Church and The Three Horseshoes pub – and a short drive from Haddenham & Thame parkway for trains to London.

Downstairs, you have a bijou kitchen and utility, a separate dining room, a downstairs WC and a study, but it’s the glorious living room we want to talk about – clock that whopping brick fireplace!

It’s without a doubt the focal point of the room (with or without the, er, bison horns), which is an achievement considering the dual-aspect windows and those gorgeous beams.

Living room

The beams continue throughout the downstairs – loving the chandelier btw – and there are plenty of alcoves to store your trinkets (and seashells, apparently!).

Upstairs, you have a WC and three bedrooms, including a generous master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, all with views of the garden – speaking of which, there’s a magical-vibe garden, helped by that Hagrid-style hut and the statues dotted about among the mature shrubs and topiary hedges.
