A stunning Grade II Listed ‘Modern House’ set in delightful gardens of just under an acre.
This outstanding home was designed by the renowned architect Peter Aldington in 1967 and is arguably one of the most influential designs of post-war domestic housing in Britain. The present owners have been at great pains to conserve and enhance the fabric of the building so it now embraces 21st Century technology and heat efficiency, including a Green heating system with heat pump.
The visually striking nature of the accommodation is apparent from the moment you set foot in the house. The dining room with its full height ceiling and glazed mezzanine is a pure masterpiece and provides a wonderful outlook over the garden. There are two further principal reception rooms both with full length windows providing a huge amount of light and engaging seamlessly with the outside. The kitchen/breakfast room provides functionality and has a wonderful ageless quality. Bedrooms two and three are on the ground floor, both with full width windows and sharing a well-equipped shower room.
The main bedroom and adjoining dressing room is on the first floor, together with a beautifully crafted bathroom. The mezzanine level provides a lovely space to sit and read overlooking the private garden.
The entrance to the property leads off Station Road to a generous parking area finished in brick sets. There is a large outhouse to the front providing useful storage.
The gardens offer complete privacy and are laid predominantly to lawn with well stocked beds and young and mature specimen trees. The guest pod or annexe has a living space opening onto the garden, with a shower room and a mezzanine bedroom.
Diggs Field 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.
