A quite exquisite period home dating from the 16th Century located close to the heart of the historic village
Grenville Manor is a beautiful Grade II* Listed house dating in origin from circa 1569 as inscribed on the stone plaque over the front door. There are clearly some later additions to the property which history suggest took place in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Internally the accommodation displays many of the original features, including exposed beams, carved paneling, stunning fireplaces, a beautiful ornate carved staircase and stone flooring.
The ornately carved gable porch leads to the entrance hall with original brick and tile floor. The sitting room enjoys a bright triple aspect with the focal point being the lovely inglenook fireplace and oak paneling with ornate carving. The dining room again enjoys a dual aspect, with an appealing fireplace, exposed beams and built in bookcase. The hallway continues round to the kitchen and the stairs to the first floor. There is a small cellar perfect for wine.
The kitchen/breakfast room is in two defined areas, with the kitchen having bespoke painted units with ceramic tiled work surfaces, gas hob, integrated oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. In the breakfast area is there is a lovely built in dresser and a ceramic tiled floor runs throughout. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with a back door out to the garden.
A beautifully ornate staircase leads up to the first floor and landing. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all enjoying a double aspect and the master bedroom having an en suite. There are also two further bathrooms on this floor. A narrow staircase leads up to second floor where there is a bedroom or den to the east and a study to the west.
The gardens are an absolute delight and are a picture of colour. They have been cleverly laid out in defined areas with sections of lawn and paved seating areas, including an area of orchard and comprehensive vegetable plot. There is a raised gravel terrace with brick sets and a substantial summerhouse. The garden as a whole enjoys a high degree of privacy. There is a substantial four car garage.
Grenville Manor is situated in the conservation area of this picturesque village, just off the village green with its duck pond. The thriving village of Haddenham offers a good range of shops, plus a health centre, dentist, library, post office, coffee shop and public houses. The nearby historic market town of Thame has one of the prettiest high streets in the area and offers more extensive facilities including a sports complex, shops, supermarkets and a weekly open-air market. Haddenham and Thame Parkway provides a fast and regular service to London, Marylebone and Oxford (around 40 minutes and 30 minutes, respectively). Junctions 7 & 8 of the M40 provide good access to London Heathrow and Birmingham Airports. There is excellent schooling in the area both in the public and private sectors with the Grammar School option.
