A picturesque country house standing in a fabulous private setting in grounds totalling approximately 48 acres.
This exquisite Grade II Listed property dates in origin from the 15th Century with later additions, including a more contemporary extension less than ten years ago. The accommodation has notably higher ceilings for a property of this era and the newer wing really enhances the ground floor living space.
The main dining room and sitting room are in the original part of the cottage and display much of the original character, with beautifully preserved beams and inglenook fireplaces. Beyond the sitting room lies a former hallway which leads through to an office/study. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a comprehensive range of units with granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. The dining area has wrap around windows and has a lovely outlook over the garden.
There is a useful utility room with access out to the garden. A door leads off the kitchen to a comfortable family room with bi-fold doors out to the garden and a secondary staircase to the first floor. Beyond the family room lies a generous study with a lovely outlook.
On the first floor in the old section of the cottage there are three double bedrooms plus a main bedroom with an en suite bathroom. The fifth bedroom and shower room are accessed off the family room.
The property is approached by a long driveway from the road which sweeps round to the house. There is a double garage with a useful workshop area. The stable block which is Harlow has three stables and two large stores.
The principal gardens are a delight having been thoughtfully and creatively landscaped, with a beautifully stocked ‘cottage garden’ to the front providing a profusion of colour. There is a wide paved terrace bordered by beds and leading to a wide expanse of lawn.
The home paddock adjacent to the gardens also contains the fully fenced tennis court and a large steel framed barn (40’ x 30’).
The pasture lies beyond and is divided into three principal fields and is stock fenced. There is also a large stock shed and an additional road access.
The pretty village of Ford is situated just five miles to the north of the market town of Princes Risborough which offers a good selection of local shops, including an M&S Food and a Tesco supermarket. There is also a good sports centre and the main line rail service to London Marylebone in as little as 33 minutes. The property is also situated equidistant between the county town of Aylesbury and the pretty market town of Thame.
Buckinghamshire is renowned for its education system and the property falls into the catchment for the Grammar schools in the county town of Aylesbury.
