An attractive four bedroom house in the Bucks hamlet of Meadle. Built before the Second World War and extended some 17 years ago to create a spacious family house set in beautiful grounds.
The original house was constructed shortly before the Second World War and extended some 17 years ago with the addition of a large new kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and two bedroom suites above. The high quality of the design and build has resulted in a spacious house with plenty of character. The front door opens onto a large reception hall with doors on both sides to the principal reception rooms. A separate side entrance to the house leads to the utility/mud room before opening into the kitchen/breakfast room which has a large oil-fired Aga and "companion". The property still retains much of its historical character such as the functioning inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and attractive alcoves set within some of the walls.
Several of the reception rooms at the rear of the property have French doors opening to the terrace and gardens beyond.
Rising to the first floor, the master bedroom is dual aspect and has an en suite bathroom. The other three bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) are all of a good size and the family bathroom has an extra-deep rolltop bath set beneath the window making the most of the views to the garden.
There is potential for enlarging the property either by additional building or utilising the garage block and/or open barn (subject to the normal planning consents).
It is believed that Meadle dates back to the English Civil War when it was caught up in the battle lines between the Royalists and Parliamentarians. It subsequently became a Quaker settlement and during the inter-war years, John Nash, the artist, lived there and drew upon the attractive Chiltern countryside for inspiration. Nowadays, Meadle is better known for the nearby Kimble point-to-point. The nearby market town of Princes Risborough is just over two and a half miles away and caters for everyday needs with a wide selection of shops, restaurants and sporting facilities. The train service to London Marylebone takes circa 40 minutes and is only 1.4 miles distant at Monks Risborough
The property is located in the delightful hamlet of Meadle and approached via gates to a gravel driveway where there is ample parking for several cars. Additionally, there is a double garage and carport housed within an attractive outbuilding with storage space above. Another, smaller outbuilding is currently used for log storage and garden machinery. The well-maintained gardens are a joy to behold. Largely laid to lawn, they are southerly-facing and comprise a fine array of plantings, shrubs and interesting fruit trees including a white, flowering cherry and greengage. For the most part, the gardens are surrounded by hedges and discreet, dog-proof fencing. The terrace is Indian sandstone and wisteria graces the external wall at the rear of the house. Plot size is 1.23 acres in all.
