A charming period cottage which has been sympathetically enlarged and updated with a modern feel to create a deceptively sizable home. The sitting room is 15'9ft x 11'1ft and features a wood burning stove and lovely sash window to the front. Leading through to the 12'8ft x 10'11ft dining room which enjoys a fitted window seat. The kitchen breakfast room has been tastefully finished with solid oak units offering plenty of storage, granite work tops, range cooker, Belfast sink and seating area, ending in double glazed doors onto the extensive decking area ideal for summer entertaining. Upstairs is a nice size double bedroom (with views over the common to the front and pretty feature fireplace), a further double bedroom and single bedroom to the rear which enjoys a double aspect, all served by the family bathroom. The property benefits from integrated ceiling speakers in all principal rooms.
Located in the heart of Downley Common, the property looks out onto the common with nearby open countryside and woodland. Local amenities including the local post/village shop, several pubs and a local school are all within a ¼ mile. More comprehensive shopping can be found from High Wycombe approx. 1.5 miles distant with the mainline station to London Marylebone and access to the M40. The area is perfect for walks with areas of outstanding natural beauty, horse riding (with nearby equestrian facilities) and greenbelt farmland. Buckinghamshire is renowned for its State and Private Education, details of which can be gained from the Local Authority.
To the front there is a gravel driveway allowing space for two cars, enclosed by established hedging with a flower bed. There is informal parking for several cars on the common in front of the property. There is a gated side access to the back garden with a raised area of decking directly outside the kitchen (ideal for entertaining) and steps down to the level lawn. Adjacent to the steps of the decking is shed ideal for garden equipment. The garden is approx. 239ft long and includes extensive areas of lawn, mature trees and hedging along with a further timber shed and log store.
