A substantial country home tucked away in gardens of half an acre in a much admired setting.
Pitch Green House is believed to date back to the 1700’s and has been significantly added to over the years, to provide a really good family home for 21st Century living yet with a clever balance of contemporary style and traditional character.
The front door opens into the spacious reception hall with a cloakroom and boot room off, together with the staircase to the first floor. A lovely mellow oak floor runs throughout the main reception rooms. The sitting room enjoys a bright triple aspect with a minster stone fireplace and wood burning stove. The dining room has a deep box bay window and a delightful inglenook fireplace complete with wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is an immensely practical space, fitted with a comprehensive range of light oak units with granite work surfaces, integrated Neff appliances and an electric AGA. Opening off the kitchen is a fabulous conservatory overlooking the garden which provides a really lovely family space. Off the kitchen lies the large utility room, running through to the family room and guest bedroom suite. This section would make a very comfortable self-contained annexe.
On the first floor is a light and airy dual aspect galleried landing. The master bedroom suite which has window seats overlooking open fields, also has fitted bedroom furniture and a well-appointed en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor together with a family bathroom. A staircase leads up to the second floor, where there is a hobbies/games room and the fifth bedroom.
The property is approached via electric double wooden gates leading to a brick paviour driveway providing plenty of parking and turning space. From the driveway there is access to a locked store room and a gym which are integral to the house; the latter would also make a great home office. There is an oak framed double carport with workshop behind.
To the rear of the house there is a large terrace perfect for outside entertaining with a water feature. This extends on to a hot tub area and a secondary terrace adjacent to the guest suite/annexe.
The garden has a sweeping lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders, together with mature trees including Silver Birch, Apple and Cherry. At the foot of the garden is a summer house, an additional timber store, greenhouse and adjacent kitchen garden. The plot is exceptionally private fully enclosed with hedging and fencing, measuring just over half an acre.
Located on this no-through country lane on the edge of this much admired village, there are all the benefits of country living without being isolated, with easy access to Chiltern Railways and the M40. Further along Sandpit Lane crosses the Phoenix Trail, a picturesque and tranquil traffic free cycling, walking and riding trail, which runs between Princes Risborough and Thame. There are many more leisure opportunities in the area, with numerous bridle paths and the Ridgeway path for ramblers. The charming village of Bledlow lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the Chilterns and has a thriving community with a good village pub, pre-school, parish church, cricket club and a yearly music festival.
The nearby market town of Princes Risborough provides a good range of local shops, supermarkets and facilities, which include a modern fitness centre and swimming pool, together with a mainline rail service to London Marylebone (37 mins). Buckinghamshire is renowned for its Grammar Schools and Bledlow falls in the catchment for the Aylesbury Grammar and High Schools, for which there is a school bus.
