About this property

TENURE: Freehold

The Cottage has undertaken an extensive schedule of works culminating in a fine distinguished family home set in a rural position with far reaching views. Arriving at the property, a sweeping double entry gravel driveway leads to a parking area in front of the garage. Enter the house and an inner lobby opens into an entrance hall where a home office and a snug are found either side of the stairs to the first floor. From the snug, access to the formal drawing room can be made as well as access to an inner hall way that leads to the recently extended kitchen, along which the utility room and a ground floor bathroom with separate shower are found. This spectacular open plan kitchen lies at the heart of this house with two sets of byfolding doors providing direct access to a large granite tiled terrace and the extensive gardens beyond. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke kitchen units both above and below Quartz work tops which incorporate integrated appliances. An island unit provides an informal dining area, above which are skylight windows, whilst more formal dining lies at the far end of the kitchen which opens directly into the drawing room which extends to the front of the house. This is a fabulous room that draws natural light from the byfolding doors of the dining area as well as windows that lie either side of the fire place housing a log burner and the front making this a wonderful light room.

There are four bedrooms arranged along a landing. The master suite has double aspect windows which take in the far reaching rural views and has an ensuite bathroom. The guest room also has an ensuite bathroom and the remaining two bedrooms both have ensuite shower rooms.

The house is set in the rural hamlet of Greenfield, high in the Chiltern Hills in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with many footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding together with well-regarded gastro pubs nearby. Watlington which has local shops and amenities is about 3 miles, Henley on Thames where an array of boutique shops, restaurants, theatre , cinema and the famous Leander Club are about 8.5 miles and Oxford about 18.5 miles. Schooling for children of all ages, both state and independent are easily accessible with Nettlebed nearby being a village where many school buses pick up and deliver children to. Henley Station provides services to Reading and Paddington and trains from High Wycombe offer a 28 minute service to Marylebone .The M40 Motorway, Junction 5 about 6 miles at Stokenchurch connects with the M25/M4 motorway networks providing access to London, Heathrow, the M25 interchange and the West Country.

The O.7 acres of the Cottage are a particular feature. Extending off the kitchen and dining areas of the house is a substantial partially raised Quartz tiled terrace, interspersed with flower beds. The garden beyond is lawn and bounded on all sides by a mix of closed panel and post and rail fencing. A substantial garage of 959 sqft provides parking for several cars, and garden machinery. Above and accessed by external stairs is an annexe that has an open plan kitchen and sitting room with a bedroom and separate shower room. This has served the current owners as a fabulous Air B&B opportunity but could also serve as additional guest accommodation.
