Built we understand in 1934 by Cornelius Stevens for his two maiden Aunts from the war, this beautifully kept home retains much of its original charm. Impressive features include the large Reception Hall with a wide oak staircase, stripped timber doors, the old bell push system for Maid service and open fireplaces. The current owner purchased the property in 2002 and made many improvements including a large Conservatory (with under floor heating), refitted bathroom suites and solid wood John Lewis flooring. Many rooms are of a double aspect including the 27ft Drawing Room. In addition to the Dining Room and separate Family Room, is a fully fitted Kitchen Breakfast Room with gas Aga range. On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one ensuite).
Located on the edge of the village, the property enjoys an open aspect over fields on three sides with access to the village of Prestwood (approximately 3/4 mile distant), with a variety of shops and post office. The area also enjoys great walks and bridle paths along with pubs/restaurants including the recently refurbished Polecat. Great Missenden offers specialised shopping, Lawn Tennis Club and mainline station to London Marylebone (approximately 2.2 miles distant 40 minutes fast train). High Wycombe enjoys extensive shopping and mainline station (approximately 5 miles distant) with the M40 junction 4 (approximately 6 miles). Buckinghamshire is renowned for its State and Private education, details of which can be obtained from the Local Authority.
The landscaped gardens are a superb feature of the property with a large level lawn, wide paved patio with ornamental pond and a fabulous Mediterranean style casita which is great for al fresco entertaining. Other features include shaped box hedging, well stocked flower bed, specimen/Silver birch trees and a circular patio to the rear boundary with climbing plants and Yew hedging. To the side there is a vegetable garden with raised beds, a cedar wood greenhouse and garden shed. There is also a paddock with separate gated access to the drive and the Wycombe Road. To the front the property is accessed via electric gates with a sweeping gravel drive allowing for ample parking and access to the double garage with large loft room above. The boundaries are clearly defined by mature hedging and open fencing to the rear which allows views over fields. The plot measures 1.245 acres in total.
N.B. There was planning which has expired to convert the detached garage into a one bedroom annexe and plans are available upon request.
