Ex­pe­ri­ence the good life

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

COM­PRIS­ING the cen­tral por­tion of a pe­riod prop­erty dat­ing back to the 17th cen­tury, Maple­tree Farm East is an at­trac­tive brick and flint grade II listed prop­erty – one of three con­verted in 1957.

Of­fer­ing a wealth of charm and char­ac­ter, this is a prop­erty which em­bod­ies country liv­ing with a touch of ‘The Good Life’-style self­suf­fi­ciency thrown in.

Si­t­u­ated in the semi-ru­ral vil­lage of Char­tridge which has a pub, 18 hole golf course, ex­cel­lent pri­mary school, bus ser­vice to nearby Che­sham and a num­ber of pub­lic bri­dle­ways and foot­paths, Maple­tree Farm East is a ru­ral re­treat yet is in close prox­im­ity to all the ameni­ties nec­es­sary for mod­ern-day life.

The house it­self is set amongst 2.4 acres of grounds which in­cludes a main lawn – per­fect for play­ing cro­quet; and a fruit or­chard and ex­ten­sive veg­etable patch pro­vid­ing an el­e­ment of self-suf­fi­ciency.

In ad­di­tion, there are two sta­bles with in­te­gral tack/feed room, a large hay/wood store and a dou­ble work­shop. For those with an eques­trian in­ter­est, there is also the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase an ad­di­tional 9.5 acres of glo­ri­ous Chiltern coun­try­side as pad­docks are avail­able by sep­a­rate ne­go­ti­a­tion.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion on of­fer also lends it­self to a flex­i­ble style of liv­ing. It in­cludes an ex­ter­nal garage with of­fice above – ideal for the in­di­vid­u­als who need to work from home – ei­ther on a per­ma­nent or semiper­ma­nent ba­sis; a barn fac­ing the in­ner court­yard which has for­merly been used as a mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ing room. Now in need of some restora­tion, it of­fers a pur­chaser plenty of op­tions for us­age.

There is also a newly con­verted two bed­room an­nex which is ideal for those seek­ing multi-gen­er­a­tional liv­ing or with a re­quire­ment for staff or guest ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Then there is the house it­self which, with 4/5 bed­rooms, ver­sa­tile re­cep­tion space and the pe­riod charm of a by­gone era, rep­re­sents the per­fect fam­ily home.

Nick Pounce, head of Sav­ills Amer­sham, said:“This prop­erty has so much to of­fer in terms of lo­ca­tion, flex­i­bil­ity and op­por­tu­nity.As a re­sult, it will have broad ap­peal to a wide va­ri­ety of buy­ers.”

Maple­tree Farm East of­fers ver­sa­tile space within the main house as well as an of­fice, barn and newly con­verted an­nex. in­clud­ing barn, open bay garage with of­fice above, sum­mer­house, 2.4 acres of gar­dens and grounds.
