Havenfields represents an interesting opportunity to take on a development project and put a creative stamp on an architectural gem. The imposing main house is set in an elevated position at the end of a private driveway and overlooks
the gardens and paddocks. Renovation work is underway and now allows scope for individual personalisation and design flair.
Once complete, the house will comprise a number of reception rooms on the ground floor, many of which have open fireplaces, large bay windows and high ceilings, lending the house a bright
and airy aspect. There is provision for seven bedrooms and a number of bathrooms on the first and second floors. There is currently planning consent to add a further wing to the
right-hand rear elevation to create a large kitchen/family room with pantry, cloakroom, boot room and a guest suite on the first floor and a home cinema and sitting room on the second floor
Further accommodation is provided in both the Cottage and the Lodge with two bedrooms apiece. The Cottage is of particular note; the current owners have decorated it beautifully and the spiral staircase and wood-burning stove add to the
warm and convivial atmosphere. The Lodge, by the entrance gate, provides additional accommodation either for guests or staff.
Havenfields is located on the edge of the pretty and historic village of Great Missenden at the heart of the Chilterns. The village serves all day-to-day needs offering a supermarket and a wide variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafés and
restaurants, as well as the independent Blue Door cinema and the Roald Dahl museum. The 18-court tennis club is very active and set in a beautiful spot on the edge of the village. There are highly regarded private and state schools in the area, including Pipers Corner and Wycombe Abbey. The Gateway School in Great Missenden is one of the leading preparatory schools in the south east.
Havenfields overlooks delightful gardens and grounds interspersed with established shrubs and trees. The land to the south slopes gently down to the Lodge and the gated entrance.
The estate has a number of fenced paddocks varying in size from approximately six to eighteen acres. There is a two-storey workshop within the former squash court and a well-equipped
office building with a boardroom and ample space for individual offices or storage. Permitted development approval for conversion of offices into three residential units (CH/2017/2126/PNO).
The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and include a walled kitchen garden and a croquet lawn as well as a large and highly impressive lean-to greenhouse. A ha-ha has been created beyond the croquet lawn offering an unbroken view to the rolling countryside beyond.
