Built in 1890, a well proportioned brick and flint Victorian property with Edwardian additions. The property has been well maintained by the current owners and offers excellent scope to enlarge or convert the additional outbuildings subject to planning consents. The 24ft drawing room enjoys a double aspect with a feature (gas) fireplace and lovely view into the garden. The dining and separate sitting room both feature open fireplaces with a study/family room from the 19ft kitchen/ breakfast room. Also accessed from the kitchen are steps to the cellar and separate utility room. On the first floor, the master bedroom is 22ft x 15ft again with charming views over the garden and offers scope to create a suite by utilising the adjoining bathroom and dressing room/bedroom 6. All the remaining bedrooms are of a good size and all incorporate wash basins with access to the two bathrooms.
Located on the edge of the village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property is just 0.6 mile level walk from the village of Prestwood, with a variety of shops and post office. The area also enjoys great walks and bridle paths along with pubs/restaurants including the recently refurbished Polecat public house nearby. Great Missenden (1.9miles) offers specialised shopping, Lawn Tennis Club and mainline station to London Marylebone (40 minutes fast train). High Wycombe enjoys extensive shopping and mainline station (approximately 5 miles distant) with the M40 junction 4 (approximately 6 miles). Buckinghamshire is renowned for its State (including the excellent Grammar schools) and Private education, details of which can be obtained from the Local Authority.
Approached via a long sweeping gravel drive, there is ample parking and a generous turning area with access to the deep double garage and courtyard. The outbuildings/stables provide good storage and great potential for an annexe, home office or studio (subject to planning). The gardens are a particular feature with large areas of level lawn, a beautiful arboretum and well stocked areas that were designed to generate colour and enjoyment throughout the year. Gated access to the tennis court and paddocks is provided by a five-bar gate to the side of the courtyard. The property overall enjoys a high level of privacy in the summer with mature trees and hedging to all sides.
