Formally two cottages, this beautiful Grade II Listed residence originally dates back to the 17th Century, and still retains much of its original charm today. The vendors have added a fabulous modern extension to provide a light and airy home, looking out onto the delightful gardens. The 23ft sitting room enjoys a wealth of beams plus an inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast family room is perfect for modern family living with high gloss units, stainless steel appliances, bi-folding doors to garden and solid wood floors. On the first floor are two bedrooms served by a refitted shower room in the old part of the house and a 2nd staircase leads to three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom.
Steeple Claydon enjoys a range of local amenities including shops, a beautician, post office, library, doctors/dentist, village hall, church, public houses and a fish and chip shop. More comprehensive facilities can be found in Buckingham (5.4 miles), Aylesbury (14 miles) or Milton Keynes (17 miles). The property is in the catchment for the Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham with preparatory schools nearby which include Beachborough (Westbury), Winchester House (Brackley), Akeley Wood and Swanbourne, with senior public schools including Stowe School, Thornton College (girls) and Bloxham School.
To the front, the property is nicely screened by a high evergreen hedge with a pedestrian gate and access to the detached garage. The vendors believe there is potential to create a double garage with a room above subject to the usual planning consents. The gardens extend around the side and rear of the property with a level lawn, large paved patio with close board fencing to the boundary. There are several young trees with a lovely climbing Wisteria around the garage.
