HIS pretty period home in Bourne End with more than 2,700 sq/ft of living space has tremendous countryside views and is within walking distance of Flackwell Heath along with Bourne End and its train station.
Built as a lodge house in the 1920s, over recent years the property has been sympathetically refurbished and extended. It now offers very flexible living accommodation with a welcoming hallway leading to four reception rooms, a modern kitchenbreakfast room and four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Approaching this home, the immediate sense is of one of privacy and calm. Careful thought has been applied as to how the house and garden can best work together, with plenty of natural light and easy access to the garden and terraces for enjoyable, relaxed entertaining.While principal rooms have excellent views of both the garden and countryside beyond, a mature boundary of hedging and trees creates a high level of privacy.
An additional benefit of this property is the potential for incoming purchasers to reconfigure the existing space and for further extension if required (subject to planning permission as current plans have now expired).
The property is privately located along a quiet no-through lane in Bourne End.To the front of the house is driveway parking with access to a double garage to the left. Steps lead up to the main entrance via a path through the centre of the front lawn. A border of laurel hedging adds to the feeling of privacy while a selection of pretty shrubs and bushes including wisteria add colour.
The well manicured and extensive garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature, trees and hedging at its borders.
With no public vehicular rights of way through the private lane, the house benefits from being secluded and yet is in within easy proximity of the local amenities of Bourne End along with good access to road and rail links into London, M25 and Heathrow.The main towns of Marlow, Beaconsfield and High Wycombe are all within four to five miles.
The property is marketed through Winkworth Estate Agents in Beaconsfield for offers in the region of £1,175,000. For further details visit www.winkworth.co.uk/beaconsfield or call 01494 677 978.
