Large and invit­ing home with views over the vale

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

THIS sub­stan­tial five dou­ble bed­room de­tached res­i­dence on a gen­er­ous plot of ap­prox­i­mately an acre en­joys far-reach­ing views over Ped­nor Vale and of­fers po­ten­tial to ex­tend fur­ther, sub­ject to the rel­e­vant con­sents.

The prop­erty is ide­ally po­si­tioned for ac­cess to highly re­garded lo­cal school­ing, ap­prox­i­mately three quar­ters of a mile from the sta­tion and pedes­tri­anised high street as well as ide­ally placed for ac­cess to coun­try­side walks.

The cur­rent own­ers, who have lived at the prop­erty for the past 14 years, be­lieve a much older house was orig­i­nally on the site, which has been added to over the years to form the house you see to­day.

Pre­vi­ous res­i­dents are thought to have been as­so­ci­ated with the boot-mak­ing in­dus­try in the Vic­to­rian/ Ed­war­dian era due to a num­ber of his­tor­i­cal items such as lasts, shapers, vice, pin­cers, small metal wheels and large door hinges be­ing found on the site.Th­ese items now form a col­lec­tion at the prop­erty; some pieces of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est have in the past been do­nated to the lo­cal mu­seum.

The well pre­sented ac­com­mo­da­tion com­prises: en­trance porch open­ing to a su­per re­cep­tion hall with stun­ning wide stair­case, strik­ing kitchen open­ing to a fan­tas­tic break­fast room both with quarry tiled floor­ing en­joy­ing views over the gar­den, util­ity room, gen­er­ous L-shaped sit­ting/dining room with fea­ture fire­place as well as two sets of doors to the gar­den and bay win­dow to the front, 14ft fam­ily room with bay win­dow and cloak­room/shower room with glass brick shower cu­bi­cle.

The first floor of­fers a spa­cious land­ing pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the gen­er­ous loft space of­fer­ing the po­ten­tial for con­ver­sion, sub­ject to the rel­e­vant con­sents.

There is a re­mod­elled fam­ily bath­room with light tube, five dou­ble bed­rooms with bed­room two en­joy­ing breath­tak­ing views to the rear from its bal­cony and the mas­ter bed­room with Juliet bal­cony and a stylish en-suite shower room.

Ex­ter­nally, the prop­erty of­fers a dou­ble garage with re­mote con­trolled door as well as a sub­stan­tial il­lu­mi­nated drive­way pro­vid­ing park­ing for sev­eral ve­hi­cles to the front.

To the rear is a sub­stan­tial and ma­ture gar­den, thought­fully land­scaped with a large lit flag­stone pa­tio which is ideal for en­ter­tain­ing. There are also two gen­er­ous lawned ar­eas with path­way lead­ing on to the veg­etable gar­den com­plete with fea­ture gar­den pond and fruit cage.

Out of sight be­hind all this can be found a se­cret wild grass­land/flower gar­den with mown path­way lead­ing to a de­light­ful wooded cop­pice pro­vid­ing an am­ple sup­ply of fire­wood.

GEN­ER­OUS PRO­POR­TIONS: The prop­erty sits on a large ma­ture plot and fea­tures a strik­ing kitchen open­ing on to a break­fast room with views over the gar­den.
