The property, originally of two storey L shaped configuration, was built in the half timbered style typical of the period, later extended in the early 19th Century to include what now comprises the kitchen and bedroom above. It is believed the north elevation was refaced in brick at broadly the same time.
This fine period home retains many character features and offers comfortable accommodation arranged traditionally over two floors. To the ground floor a welcoming and spacious reception hall serves a formal dining room, sitting room, kitchen/ breakfast room with AGA, adjacent rear hall, utility room and cloakroom. The impressive triple aspect 30’9 x 14’10 drawing room has French doors to the rear garden. To the first floor a large landing serves all four bedrooms (two with en-suite shower rooms) and a family bathroom.
The picturesque Anglo Saxon village of Whaddon , which draws its name from the 5th Century word for 'hill where wheat is grown', offers tranquil rural living, yet is situated just 5 miles from Central Milton Keynes railway station, offering a fast train service to London, Euston (from 35 minutes).
The village is at the centre of the ancient Whaddon Chase, the site for many centuries of royal hunting lands and now a site of 'Special Landscape Interest'. During the Second World War nearby Whaddon Hall served as a communications headquarters for MI6 and in 1940 the 'Station X' wireless interceptor was relocated here from Bletchley Park.
This is an archetypal English country village and yet is conveniently located for the wide ranging domestic, commercial and leisure facilities of Milton Keynes and Buckingham, with Bicester and Oxford also being easily accessible. Whaddon is well positioned for access to both the M1 and M40 motorways.
Whaddon is fortunate to have its own infant school and the village falls within the catchment area for the Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham. Independent schools nearby include Stowe, Swanbourne, Akeley Wood, Thornton College and Winchester House.
A gated gravelled drive provides ample parking for a large number of vehicles and also serves the garage. The attached double garage has power, light and an integral door from the utility room.
The property occupies an enclosed garden plot of 0.64 of an acre. The garden is laid in the main to lawn over a shallow double tier and features an interesting collection of maturing specimen trees, shrubs and plants. The gardens are an excellent vantage point from which to fully appreciate the impressive country views.
