A wonderful opportunity to acquire this Listed former Ale House which dates back to the 17th Century with later additions in the 18th and 19th Century. The property features a wealth of timber beams, inglenook fireplaces plus wide oak plank floors and doors. The current owners have undertaken a sympathetic programme of partial restoration. The retention of many of it’s original features will ensure that any further modernisation will create a unique and characterful family home. The property offers almost 2,500 sq ft of floor space with 3 reception rooms plus a refurbished basement. There are 2 staircases leading to the first floor with four double bedrooms, (two with part vaulted ceilings) and one with an ensuite wc. A lovely curved staircase leads up to the 2nd floor.

Situated close to the heart of this picturesque village, Speen has always been an extremely sought after location, with a local village shop (about 200yds), a playing field, village hall and a chapel (with the cafe at the Chapel every Thursday) plus a very active and vibrant community. There are fabulous country walks and bridleways as well as excellent schooling (including Grammar), with the C of E school (which received a Good rating in 2015) approx 100yds, details of which can be obtained from the local authority. Rail access can be gained via Princes Risborough, Saunderton and Great Missenden all with fast trains to London Marylebone in approximately 40 minutes.
To the front, the property is nicely set back from road with a right of way over the drive to the side. There is informal parking for several cars with pedestrian access to both sides.
