EQUESTRIAN - Magpie Lodge is a well concealed delight, discreetly tucked away and set back from the road. As one approaches the property, the eye is drawn to the attractive Arts & Crafts façade. The oldest part of the house dates back to the middle of the 19th
century; many original features have been preserved such as the ornate roof tiles and attractive bay window in the drawing room. The house is steeped in history and represents a highly appealing mélange of craftsmanship, elegance and functional design. It benefits from considerate renovations and additions throughout its history, resulting in a magnificent family home with all the prerequisites for 21st century living.
The structure of the original house is clearly seen in the reception hall which features what was once an external wall with magnificent hung tiles above a traditional brick and flint wall. Double doors open off the rear of the hall to terracing and the courtyard garden; one of several spots perfectly suited to al fresco dining. The drawing room which has an open fire, is to the south and a few steps on the other side of the hall rise to the remaining principal ground floor rooms, notably the L-shaped
kitchen and dining room, sitting room and utility room. The kitchen exudes warmth and conviviality, thanks in part to the four-oven Aga, exposed beams and engineered oak floorboards which
run through to the dining room and sitting room. The latter also features a wood-burning stove.
Rising to the first floor, the original section of the house comprises three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. The more recent wing includes a bedroom/sitting room with an en suite bathroom;
ideal for a teenager or guests. When it was built, entry to the house was gained through the porch on this level. This is now a study with a door to the raised ground level at the rear of the house. The master bedroom suite is located in prime position on the second floor and with low level windows and commands stunning views across the grounds and verdant Chiltern countryside and golf course.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
Located on the River Wye, Loudwater village grew along the London Road and the railway line. There was once a large blotting paper mill in the valley and the open air Wycombe Rye Lido swimming pool is a popular historical attraction. Wycombe
Heights Golf Club adjoins the property with two courses, a restaurant and a driving range. The area is renowned for its superb schooling, both independent and state.
Much of the land in front of the house is laid to lawn descending from paved terracing. There are numerous borders of mature plants such as honeysuckle, roses, clematis and passion flower. An area of woodland features tall pines, beech trees and hornbeam. Extensive equestrian facilities include four stables, a tack room and a hay store; a rubber/sand surfaced manège and a carport to accommodate a horsebox. A workshop, summerhouse, greenhouse and garden sheds are located in the grounds as well as ample parking space on the forecourt.
