This former single story lodge to a significant period country residence has undergone modification/updating since it was first constructed. The addition of a 15ft x 9'5ft conservatory, ensuite shower room to bedroom 1 and latterly a new gas fired boiler enhance the property. Entering the property into the entrance hall provides access to the principal reception rooms and bedrooms. The 13ft x 11'7 ft sitting room enjoys an open fireplace adding charm/character and cosiness during those winter evenings (this room also offers scope to be used as bedroom 3). The 12ft x 11'6ft dining room adjoins the kitchen and benefits from fitted storage. The kitchen with wood fronted units offers space for freestanding appliances and access to the conservatory. The 15ft x 10'3 master bedrooms enjoys an ensuite shower room and views over the rear garden, whilst the 2nd (13'3 x 11ft) bedroom has the charm of a feature fireplace whilst benefiting from fitted wardrobes. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a property with just over an acre plot, which offers excellent scope for enlargement or a replacement dwelling (subject to the necessary planning consents).
The property is located in an elevated level position, overlooking its own paddock and rolling countryside beyond in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Great Kingshill enjoys an active cricket club, village green and excellent convenience store as well as The Old Red Lion pub and restaurant. There are highly regarded first and middle schools within half a mile distant, along with girls’ private schooling, with Pipers Corner under a mile away and Wycombe Abbey under four miles away in nearby High Wycombe. Great Missenden village is three miles distant with the Chiltern Line direct rail connection to London Marylebone. The Telegraph ranked the village number 4 in its “Best Places to Raise a Family in the UK” 2015 survey, dubbing it a “gem of a town.” The village fully serves day to day needs, offering a supermarket and a wide variety of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants, a post office and features like the independent ‘Blue Door’ cinema. Home to the Roald Dahl museum, the village houses the Gateway School (one of the leading Preparatory schools in the south east). Buckinghamshire is renowned for its State and Private education, details of which may be gained from the Local Authority.
