Home with su­perb views

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

SIT­U­ATED in Highover Park, with stun­ning views to­wards the Old Town and Gore Hill, this Grade II listed res­i­dence was built in the 1930s by the renowned ar­chi­tects Amyas Con­nell and Basil Ward.

This, along with sev­eral neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties, was one of the first mod­ernist houses to have been built in England. Over more re­cent years the prop­erty has been sym­pa­thet­i­cally re­fur­bished and re­stored to­gether with the ad­di­tion of a fab­u­lous ex­ten­sion to the rear of the house, which has cre­ated fur­ther light and airy liv­ing space.

The in­ter­nal ac­com­mo­da­tion com­prises a for­mal, dual as­pect re­cep­tion room to the front, with high ceil­ings and large Crit­tal win­dows, giv­ing an airy and spa­cious feel.

A step to one side leads up to a fam­ily room and an ad­join­ing study with fit­ted fur­ni­ture. Lead­ing di­rectly from the en­trance hall, a stylish glass cor­ri­dor leads to the newly con­structed, open-plan area in­cor­po­rat­ing a be­spoke kitchen, din­ing area and TV room.

To one side a lav­ish bed­room suite, with a dress­ing room and en-suite bath­room, pro­vides di­rect ac­cess out onto a charm­ing decked ter­race. Sit­u­ated on the first floor are four in­di­vid­ual bed­rooms that en­joy de­light­ful views of the gar­dens.All are ser­viced by a well ap­pointed bath­room suite.

Fur­ther ex­ter­nal ac­cess is pro­vided by a sec­ond stair­case that rises to a large bal­cony/ter­race, af­ford­ing spec­tac­u­lar views and ideal for en­ter­tain­ing dur­ing the sum­mer months.

Drive­way park­ing is pro­vided to the front to­gether with a garage that joins the house.The beau­ti­fully land­scaped gar­dens fea­ture large ex­panses of lawns to the front and rear to­gether with an at­trac­tive va­ri­ety of well stocked shrubs, topiary and spec­i­men plants.There are also two large ter­races; one of which can be ac­cessed from the kitchen area, set upon part tim­ber deck­ing and In­dian sand­stone, en­joy­ing a high de­gree of pri­vacy and nat­u­ral sun­light.The sec­ond ter­race is sit­u­ated at the top of the gar­den and, like the roof ter­race, en­joys su­perb views to­wards Gore Hill and the coun­try­side be­yond. To­wards the rear of the plot is a large tim­ber framed out­house that of­fers ad­di­tional stor­age and po­ten­tial liv­ing space.The plot as a whole en­joys a high de­gree of seclu­sion, en­closed by ma­ture trees and hedges.

MOD­ERNIST STYLE: This listed 1930s home has been sym­pa­thet­i­cally re­stored and of­fers stun­ning views, par­tic­u­larly from the roof ter­race.
