A charming country house standing in delightful grounds of approximately four acres in a quiet country lane setting.
This delightful period property has been sympathetically extended over the years and now offers a wonderful balance of traditional charm with a real contemporary style. The well laid out accommodation works extremely well and is beautifully presented throughout.
A lovely gabled entrance porch opens into the reception hall which leads to the principal reception rooms and the staircase to the first floor. The sitting room is in the original section of the cottage and has fireplaces at either end, with a wood burner and an inglenook fireplace. Double casements open on either side of the room onto the gardens. The conservatory/garden room provides a wonderful outlook over the gardens and paddocks beyond. The kitchen/diner is well appointed in a classic shaker style with granite work surfaces and an island, together with the all ‘essential’ electric AGA. The dining area has double casements onto the garden and leads to the study. There is a generous utility room with a top of the range ‘Sub Zero’ fridge/freezer.
On the first floor there is a fabulous main bedroom suite with a huge fully fitted dressing room and sumptuous bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and bedroom two has a large en suite. The family bathroom is once again beautifully appointed.
The property is approached via wooden gates with a gravel drive leading to a wide forecourt with plenty of parking in front of the garage block. The latter has two separate electrically operated doors, together with an adjoining store room. Behind the garage are three further outhouses, one of which contains the pool filtration and heating system.
The heated swimming pool is 10m x 6m with a paved surround and is fully fenced and gated. The gardens are a delight and are well established with flowering shrubs, numerous fruit trees and bushes, including strawberries and gooseberries, apples, plums and pears, fig and walnut trees. Large timber greenhouse.
The land is divided into three paddocks and includes a stable block with two boxes and covered store.
Occupying an idyllic position at the foot of this no-through country lane on the edge of this much admired village, the location offers rural bliss without being isolated, with easy access to Chiltern Railways and the M40. The nearby Phoenix Trail provides 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.
