Armshill Wood Cottage is a fantastic family home that has evolved from its humble beginnings as a two bedroom house built in the 1950's which has recently been comprehensively reconfigured and upgraded by the current owners into a fine 4 bedroom family home. Located in the sought after village of Stonor and backing onto the Stonor Estate. Arriving at the property, the front door opens into an entrance lobby off which the principal reception rooms are found. A limestone floor, with underfloor heating, runs through to the fabulous open plan kitchen and dining area where a substantial island unit takes centre stage. This provides an ideal informal dining area and has an in built induction hob and gas burner. Around the island are built in store cupboards housing integrated ovens, fridge freezer and coffee machine. There is direct access onto a substantial patio that leads onto the gardens. Just off the kitchen is a versatile utility area beyond which is a shower room and office as well as access to the garden. The sitting room is currently open plan to the dining area and this openness gives a real sense that all the reception areas are well connected. A family room is located at the front of the house.
The four double bedrooms are located off a landing, with two facing onto the rear gardens and two overlooking the front drive. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room whilst the family bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms.
Armshill Wood Cottage is situated in the rural village of Stonor, which lies at the heart of the scenic Stonor Valley, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within the immediate vicinity there are numerous bridleways over which to walk, ride and cycle through beautiful Chiltern countryside. Within a short drive is the well renowned 5 Horseshoes pub at Maidensgrove Common and the well regarded Golden Ball. Henley is approx. 5 miles and provides an excellent range of shops, restaurants, theatre, cinema and the River Thames. Henley Station provides services to Reading and London Paddington with Crossrail arriving in approx. 2019. Access to the M4 J8/9 at Maidenhead Thicket is approx. 14 miles. The M40 at Lewknor, near Watlington, is approx. 8 miles. The area abounds with excellent schools, both state and independent.
One of the key features of this house is the extensive garden that runs off a substantial terrace adjacent to the rear of the property. Subject to planning permission, there is potential to further extend the property and the current owner has made preparations for this. Further up the garden, which is mainly lawned, there is an area for a summer house with power available. The gardens run up the woods of Stonor Park and looking back there is a wonderful view over the other side of the valley. Parking at the front of the house is available for several cars.
