A quite unique lakeside property set in approximately 10 acres with views across the Chilterns countryside.
This fascinating home has been extensively remodelled by the current owners and provides wonderful light accommodation that engages beautifully with its environment. The accommodation is over two floors and is exceptionally versatile with every room having a quite exceptional outlook.
The front porch opens into a generous vaulted reception hall off which lie the main reception areas. The huge sitting room has a deep glazed bay with casement doors overlooking the gardens; there is a neat study area to one corner. The kitchen/dining and family room is a fabulous ‘L’ shaped space with windows and casement doors looking out over the lake. Off the kitchen lies a useful utility area. Making up the ground floor is a generous bedroom suite with an en suite shower room.
On the first floor is the master bedroom suite with doors onto a large balcony; there is also a fully fitted dressing area and luxurious four piece bathroom. There are two further en suite double bedrooms completing this level.
Electric double wooden gates lead to the main gravel driveway which sweeps up to the front door. The mature gardens offer exceptional privacy, are laid predominantly to lawn running along the side of the lake with well stocked flower and shrub beds. The lake itself is stocked with an abundance of carp and attracts significant wildlife, with two small islands and a maximum depth of about 16’.
There is a useful collection of timber outbuildings on the southern boundary; a separate pedestrian access to the front also leads to a building which is currently used as an office.
There is a separate gated vehicular access which leads to the stable yard where there is an ‘American Barn’ style building with loose boxes and storage. There is also substantial garaging. The grounds and paddocks in all extend to some 10 acres.
