Built in 1896, this wonderful Victorian residence offers over 4,000sq ft of accommodation and retains many original features including fireplaces, cornicing and exquisite stained glass windows. The 25ft Drawing Room is triple aspect with two feature fire places with a deep bay window. The 25ft x 16ft Music/Dining Room also enjoys a feature fireplace with stripped wood floors, deep bay window and a double aspect. The current owners created a beautiful 30ft bespoke Kitchen Breakfast room with handmade oak units with granite tops by Richard Winfrey Kitchens. There is a 2 oven Aga Range (with Electric module), wide double doors out to the sunny patio and a vaulted ceiling. The Family Room (with wood burning stove), Sun Room, Study and double bedroom easily lends itself to be a separate annexe/teenage suite or Au Pair suite and was originally separate to the house (known as Evenley Cottage). On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms all with feature fireplaces and one enjoying an ensuite shower room (with a door out to the wide front balcony). The remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. On the second floor is a stunning 29ft Master Bedroom with a Dressing area (featuring fitted wardrobes) and generous En Suite bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower unit. This room is wonderfully light with four windows and lovely views down the gardens and across the fields.
Siding onto open fields, the property occupies a large level plot. Lee Common is a delightful hill top village which is surrounded by the beautiful Chiltern countryside, ideal for country walks through woodland and open fields. The village has an excellent village shop, allotments and a primary school as well as the Cock & Rabbit and The Swan public houses, cricket clubs plus a recently created children’s playground. Great Missenden village (approximately 2½ miles) caters for specialised shopping plus a main line station to London Marylebone (approx 40 minutes fast train). Buckinghamshire is renowned for State (including Grammar) and Private education, details of which can be gained from the Local Authority.
Approached via a sweeping gravel drive, there is ample parking and access to the detached Double garage. To the front is a beautiful parterre with box hedging interspersed with Lavender. Along with climbing Wisteria and mature shrubs, the garden is a real feature with a paved path and gated pedestrian access to the side. The rear gardens enjoy sun throughout the day with a large level lawn, wide Indian sandstone patio and a fenced heated open air swimming pool. This is fantastic for entertaining as there is a large patio, built in seating area and is sheltered by the colourful planting. Beyond are raised beds and the garden boundaries are clearly defined by mature hedging, trees and fencing which provide a good level of privacy.
There is current planning permission CH/2015/1467/FA to enlarge the Sun/Garden Room plus an extension to the Kitchen to create an Orangery with an atrium and to replace the detached double garage
