Why buy this home?

As rare as they come, The Mews House is the perfect example of a historic building that has been converted to suit modern living.

Located on White Horse Yard, it is thought this building was the haybarn for the stables that accompanied The White Horse Inn which dates back to 1540. It is thought these buildings date to circa 1750 but, although in the conservation area, The Mews House isn't a listed building. Now a spacious two bedroom home, it offers impressive entertaining areas and all important allocated parking.

On the ground floor is a generous entrance hall with understairs storage and WC. There is also a kitchen/diner which has a range cooker with gas hob as well as an integrated dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. The dining area is large enough for a six seater dining table making it the ideal space to host friends before adventuring out to the array of restaurants and pubs on the High Street. The combi boiler has also been replaced since the current owners took occupation.

The first floor has the star attraction of this wonderful home; the living room. It's hard to decide which is its most impressive feature: its size, the beautiful original beams on the ceiling, the brick fireplace and mantel or the trendy décor. At over 300 sq. ft there is ample room for multiple sofas or one extra large corner sofa like the current owners opted for. As with the kitchen/diner is a great entertaining area and the ideal place to catch up with groups of friends.

The top floor has both bedrooms which have vaulted ceilings with another original beam running through both rooms. The main bedroom has panelling behind the bed and plenty of space for tall wardrobes on the wall by the door, meaning the width of the room can be utilised by a large bed and tables. The second bedroom can fit a double bed widthways freeing up the rest of the floorspace for wardrobes and even a desk. There is also a comfortable shower room on this floor which previously had a bath if that is your preference.

Outside is lockable storage, ideal for bikes or a foldable table and chairs. Although there is allocated parking, we have been advised by the owners that you can also obtain a resident parking permit for Market Square car park at a cost of only £20 a year.

More about the location...

Stony Stratford is a constituent town of Milton Keynes. Historically it was a market town on the important route from London to Chester.

Stony Stratford was the location where, in 1290, an Eleanor cross was built in memory of the recently-deceased Queen Eleanor of Castile, as her funeral cortège had stopped overnight in the town en route to London.

The former Rose and Crown Inn at Stony Stratford was reputedly where, in 1483, the boy-king Edward V stayed the night before he was taken to London (to become one of the Princes in the Tower) by his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who soon became King Richard III. Edward had been returning from Ludlow Castle in the Welsh Marches to London to claim his crown on the death of his father, Edward IV, when he was met in Stony Stratford by his uncle, who later deposed him

Due to the juxtaposition of two hotels in the centre of town, The Cock and The Bull, (both originally coaching inns) on the main London to Chester and North Wales turnpike), it is claimed locally that the common phrase a cock and bull story originated here.

Today Stony Stratford is a busy market town. Its pubs, restaurants and specialist shops attract tourists. In early June, Folk on the Green, a free festival of folk music, folk rock and eclectic taste takes over Horsefair Green.
