IT­U­ATED in over 2.5 acres of grounds,The Dower House in the pretty vil­lage of Dray­ton Beauchamp, is the epit­ome of an his­toric English coun­try prop­erty.

This Grade II listed thatched house is likely to have been built in around 1620 for the Dowa­ger Lady Mary Cheyne af­ter the death of her hus­band, Fran­cis whose fam­ily held the lo­cal manor from the 14th cen­tury to 1722.

Although later ex­tended and al­tered, the Dower House has re­tained many of its orig­i­nal fit­tings and fin­ishes – a rar­ity which has made it the ideal lo­ca­tion for a num­ber of pe­riod dra­mas.

An­drew Cronan, head of Sav­ills Bea­cons­field, said:“The Dower House pro­vides a welcome re­treat from the stresses and strains of the mod­ern world.To the north of the vil­lage is Wil­stone Reser­voir, con­sid­ered one of the best bird watch­ing spots in south­ern Eng­land.Yet, its sit­u­a­tion – only 2.4 miles from Tring (with a main­line ser­vice into Lon­don Eus­ton in 35 min­utes); 0.25 of a mile from the A41 (pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the M25); and ex­ten­sive shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties in Ayles­bury – only eight miles away, makes it easily ac­ces­si­ble for 21st cen­tury life.

“It would equally suit a down­sizer from the area; a Lon­doner look­ing for the pri­vacy and seclu­sion of a coun­try week­end home; or a fam­ily (as there is a wide se­lec­tion of good schools nearby).”

The Dower House com­prises master bed­room, three fur­ther bed­rooms, bath­room, hall, sit­ting room, din­ing room, break­fast room, kitchen, util­ity room, cloak­room, de­tached dou­ble garage, lawns, or­chard, range of wood sheds.

In ex­cess of 2.5 acres. Guide price £1.2 mil­lion. Call Sav­ills 01494 731950.
