A beautifully restored former farmhouse set in glorious grounds of three acres It is difficult to precisely date the origins of this hugely appealing property but it was clearly built in the typical Bucks style of brick and flint. For generations it was a farm workers home and it was as late as the 1930 that its standing began to change. The present owners have been responsible for the transformation of the property during their tenure and it is now just a stunning example of new meets old.
The accommodation seamlessly blends traditional character with contemporary style to offer a simply exquisite family home. The front door opens into a lovely full height glazed hallway with a galleried landing which beautifully defines the two different eras of the property. The main drawing room has bi-fold doors that look down across the sweeping lawn to the pond and across to Coombe Hill beyond. There is a generous formal dining room and private study. The kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of space with a separate utility room and a charming adjoining family room, which has a staircase up to the guest suite.
On the first floor the master bedroom has a fabulous vaulted ceiling with a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms in this section and two additional bathrooms. A separate staircase leads from the family room up to the guest bedroom and bathroom.
An un-adopted drive leads down to the property before swinging through a wooden gate and along the tarmac driveway. There is plenty of parking and turning space for numerous vehicles.
The garage block provides a carport, lockable garage and large store room, with an external staircase leading up to a great home office or game/hobbies room.
The gardens wrap around the house and are bordered by a picturesque clear running stream with a pond in the middle. Laid predominantly to lawn with the heated swimming pool and summer house one side sweeping across to the orchard on the other. Immediately to the rear of the house is a paved terrace enjoying the full vista of the gardens, paddock and Coombe Hill in the distance. There is a small paddock which is reached via a bridge across the stream.
Tucked away along a quarter of a mile drive this tranquil oasis is one of the best kept secrets in the village; yet the nearby footpath means you can reach the station and village centre in no more than 10 minutes. With its eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, Wendover is without doubt one of the most appealing high streets in the Chilterns. There are numerous clubs and recreational facilities in the village including tennis, squash and bowls. The Chiltern Line offers an excellent reliable service to London Marylebone (45 mins), whilst access to the M25 can be found via the A41(M) at Tring (4 miles), or alternatively the M40 at High Wycombe (12 miles).
