mews houses arranged to the rear of Great Bowden Hall, a magnificent stucco mansion dating from 1860 set in some 15 acres of grounds. The property has been designed to maximise the views over the Grand Union Canal running alongside the estate. The first floor briefly comprises a well-proportioned study area on the landing and a generous rear aspect sitting room with exposed A frame ceiling, wooden floor and French doors to a

On the ground floor, a welcoming entrance hall
gives access to a generous rear aspect principal
bedroom with contemporary en suite shower room, one further well-proportioned front aspect bedroom and a large family bathroom.
The property is approached over a private
