Ethel_Lina_White_houseSo far I’ve plugged house sales for Ruth Rendell and Daphne du Maurier. I’m now happy to bring you news of Ethel Lina White’s childhood home.

The author of The Wheel Spins (filmed as The Lady Vanishes) and Some Must Watch (The Spiral Staircase) grew up in this lovely mock-Tudor house in Abergavenny. And very pleasant it seems too. 600 grand if you want it.
