A delightful period farmhouse offering quite exceptional accommodation set in five acres in the heart of the glorious north Buckinghamshire countryside.
Potters Farm House occupies a glorious setting in an idyllic rural location surrounded by rolling farmland. Set well back from the Quainton Road the house is centrally positioned within its own private grounds and adjacent field. The original farmhouse is of sixteen century origin although the major part of the building is Victorian. The accommodation is extremely adaptable as an adjacent barn was incorporated some years ago to provide a fabulous entertainment space or with potential for a substantial annexe. The current owners have undertaken a significant refurbishment programme over the last few years and the property is now a truly magnificent family home.
The door you would use on a daily basis opens into a large hallway with plenty of rooms for coats, shoes and boots, with double doors through to the rear garden. The homely kitchen/breakfast room is off to the right and is well fitted with a range contemporary units finished in white with contrasting granite surfaces, together with a mellow limestone floor. Leading off is a hallway which has the front of the Victorian section with stairs up the first floor. The dining room and Study/Family room are classic style of the era with high ceilings and original fireplaces. The sitting room is an exceptionally comfortable triple aspect room with a lovely fireplace and wood burning stove. A door leads to an inner hall which serves the two ground floor bedrooms, with a shower and bathroom, plus a large store room. On the first floor there are four first floor bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom.
The converted barn has a fabulous full height vaulted central section with bi-fold doors opening out onto both sides. A staircase leads up to first floor mezzanine level. At the north end of the barn there is spa room complete with shower and bi-fold doors. At the other end is a large store room.
The property is approached via a driveway leading to a wide parking and turning area, in front of a traditional four bay carport which also incorporates a single garage.
The immediate gardens wrap around the property and are perfect of children, laid predominantly to lawn with well stocked beds providing a splash of colour, together with an area of orchard. Beyond the gardens is the enclosed paddock/field and a natural pond.
