Situated alongside the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal, the house is within the conservation area of Halton Village which has a wealth of character properties of historical and national interest. Village community life is very active with social events throughout the year with the added benefit of Halton Tennis Club incorporating the Health and Fitness Centre, and clubhouse with cafe and bar open to non-members. Nearby is a village shop and a superb primary (combined) school, which is Ofsted rated Outstanding. Aylesbury offers the renowned Grammar Schools (with the school bus stopping in the village), details available from the Local Authority. There are Private Schools close by in both Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, most notably Berkhamsted School.
Wendover is a pretty market town (1.7 miles) with a variety of shops, restaurants and mainline station to London Marylebone and Tring (6.1 miles) offers a mainline service to Euston. Wendover Woods (1 mile) part of the Chilterns AONB is owned by the Forestry Commission and offers fantastic walks/biking trails as well as a "Go Ape" course.
The property fronts part of a unique courtyard setting The Leys, a former collection of Rothschild stables and barns now provide an exclusive development situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and adjoining the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal.
