This attractive detached property is set down a leafy lane within the Abbotsbrook private estate, a protected Conservation Area in Bourne End, and has been lovingly tended and enjoyed by the present owners.
Excellent transport links, close proximity to the River Thames, the convenience of the village centre plus its unique setting within the Abbotsbrook, all serve to make The Chauntry a truly unique family home.
The property is entered via a welcoming and spacious entrance hall. It has a flexible layout with two formal reception rooms both with polished wooden floors, open fireplaces, bay windows and french doors leading onto the patio area. The house accommodates a spacious family kitchen/breakfast room with the added bonus of a walk-in pantry. Leading off the breakfast room is the study/playroom. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. To the rear of the substantial detached garage is the gym and workshop.
Upstairs the master bedroom affords fabulous double aspect views over the garden and has a spacious luxury and contemporary ensuite bathroom. The further four bedrooms, all doubles, are served by the family bathroom.
Full appreciation of the Edwardian character, high ceilings, and charm of the original large light and bright windows can only be gained by internal viewing this lovely home.
The Chauntry is situated on the Abbotsbrook private estate which dates from 1907. This is a unique, private enclave of leafy streets and watercourses of early 20th century Edwardian houses and cottages built in a distinctive ‘Vernacular Revival’ style informed by the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 19th Century. The Abbotsbrook is a conservation area, and The Chauntry is highlighted in the Wycombe ‘Abbotsbrook Conservation Area Character Survey’. The residents of the estate have the privilege of being able to navigate small boats on the streams through the estate, which is close to the Thames and both Bourne End Marina and the long established Upper Thames Sailing Club.
Located within a level walking distance (220m) from the centre of the riverside village of Bourne End, which offers a selection of shops, cafes and services.
There is local schooling at both primary and secondary level within walking distance, and High Wycombe, Maidenhead and Marlow provide private schooling and well regarded grammar schools.
For the commuter the M4 and M40 Motorways are easily accessible, at Maidenhead and High Wycombe respectively. Bourne End railway station is only 0.25 miles away and connects via Maidenhead to London Paddington (approx. 37 minutes). The arrival of the high speed Cross Rail service in 2019 at Maidenhead will greatly enhance commuting to the West End and the City of London. The village of Cookham and the larger riverside town of Marlow are within a few minutes’ drive or a pleasant walk along the Thames towpath.
The property is approached through a five-bar gate leading to a large shingled driveway which offers ample parking whilst affording access to the double detached garage. The Chauntry sits in a plot of 0.37 acres with the professionally designed garden surrounding the house on all sides which offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
A delightful veranda from the main reception room invites you onto the spacious patio, ideal for outside dining and summer entertaining. This leads to the main rear garden which is a strong feature given its generous proportions and south westerly facing aspect. It includes an expansive lawn, well stocked borders with mature planting, and an ornamental fruit and vegetable garden beyond, all benefitting from an automatic irrigation system.
