Holywick’s origins date back to the 19th century and today stands as a fine family home nestled in some of the Chilterns most beautiful countryside. The property has recently been subject to a programme of extensive refurbishment by the current owners and offers elegant and well-appointed accommodation. The drawing room, accessed directly from the entrance hall, features a brick surround fire place with a log burner inset and a sitting room, currently serving as a home office, is located directly off the drawing room with windows providing delightful views across the gardens. The family room, just off the drawing room sits between the garden room where lovely southerly views across the garden and surrounding countryside can be enjoyed as well as direct access onto a terrace where a mature vine covers a pergola. The kitchen/ breakfast room is the heart of this house and is fashioned in a traditional yet elegant style with an oil fired Aga at its heart and kitchen storage units both above and below a tiled counter top. Windows offer double aspect views over rolling countryside and there is an area to accommodate a large dining table and a snug area at the far end of the kitchen. Along an inner hallway is a cloakroom, utility room and an access to outside, where additional parking is found.
Among the many features Holywick offers, perhaps the most spectacular are the uninterrupted far reaching views over the surrounding countryside that can be enjoyed from all of the bedrooms. The master suite has French doors that open onto a flat roof and has an en suite bathroom as well as access into the family shower room. The remaining four bedrooms are served by both a family bathroom and the family shower room.
Holywick occupies an enviable position just outside the hamlet of Rockwell End. Local amenities are catered for in Hambleden and Frieth villages, as well as Henley and Marlow. The local pubs are The Stag and Huntsman, The Yew Tree and The Chequers and sporting amenities include Hambleden Sports and Social Club which offer tennis, cricket and football. There is plenty of scope for walking, riding and making the most of everything that the countryside and nature have to offer. Hambleden has often been the location for films and television programmes including “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”, “Into the Woods”, “101 Dalmatians”, “Miss Marple” and “Midsomer Murders”. There is a selection of highly-regarded schools in the vicinity. Primary schools include Frieth and Danesfield and Buckinghamshire’s renowned grammar schools are nearby. There are also many noteworthy independent schools in the area.
With so much open countryside surrounding Holywick, the gardens amounting to approximately 0.63 acres, are a delightful haven. There is a fabulous tree house and the current owners comment that their children adore this area as well as camping beneath starry skies in the enclosed gardens. Within the garden are fruit and chestnut trees along with a vegetable garden as well as a chicken coup. The summer house provides a place to quietly enjoy the gardens and contemplate. A terrace covered by a mature vine over a pergola provides an excellent area for outside dining whilst also offering a welcome shady area from the gardens southerly position. The gravel driveway provides parking for several cars and the garage allows for two vehicles plus storage of garden machinery. Above the garage is an extensive store room accessed via an external staircase and both these areas are alarmed. A carport is attached to the garage.
