Originally built as two timber framed cottages in the 17th century, with a history as a 'tap room' for farm workers. It was converted in the 1960's into a public house, well known locally for its cider and jazz. The full width open plan living/dining/family room incorporates the original front bar of the old public house. This room is full of character, with a beautiful beamed ceiling and quarry tiled floor. The room benefits from multiple windows overlooking the attractive front gardens, and there is a woodburner to add to the charm. Beyond is the large kitchen with electric Aga, a breakfast bar and ample space for a table, giving flexible entertaining space. Glazed doors lead to the garden room at the rear, which is currently used as a games room. There is access to the cellar which houses the new biomass boiler. At the back of the house, planning permission is in place to link the rear hall with the utility and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there are 4 large double bedrooms, a further single, and a large family bathroom. Of note is the generous master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and Juliet balcony overlooking the lovely gardens.
Located on the edge of The Lee, the property has access to some fantastic country walks through open fields and woodland, with two well regarded village pubs, within a 1/4 mile distant. The Lee enjoys a village green, cricket pitch, community shop and is regarded as one of the prettiest villages in the Chilterns, having been used as a film location for many productions including Midsomer Murders. The nearby village of Great Missenden offers specialised shopping, a historic High Street and mainline station to London Marylebone (approximately 40 minutes fast train). Buckinghamshire is renowned for its Private and State (including Grammar) Schooling, details of which can be gained from the Local Authority.
The property is accessed via a private road leading to a large flexible parking area. A brick path leads across the large lawns, between pollarded lime trees to the pretty front door and open porch. To the rear there is a sunken landscaped terrace, ideal for outdoor entertaining, and a large lawn. Here, there is an additional access for vehicles.
