A quite exceptional village house set in wonderful grounds of just over 4.5 acres
This substantial period home offers superb family accommodation of fabulous proportions with many original features. The present owners commissioned the renowned architect Peter Aldington to give the property a contemporary twist with a number of unique finishing touches throughout.
A lovely oak panelled entrance hall, with a cellar, then leads to an impressive drawing room, a comfortable family room with deep bay window, a generous ‘Peter Aldington’ designed kitchen and utility room, a quite magnificent dining room and cosy study.
There are two staircases leading to the first floor, where there is a master bedroom suite with en suite dressing room and bathroom, four further double bedrooms, a single and two more bathrooms. There is also a concealed staircase leading up to a second floor and an additional bedroom/hobbies room.
There are two entrances to the property, one leading to the front leading to a double garage block with storage over and the other to the rear with plenty of additional parking and large multi-bay carport.
The formal landscaped gardens are simply stunning with traditional rose beds, well stocked beds and borders, all providing a profusion of colour. There are interesting corners within the garden, including a large dining terrace and an ornamental pond.
Beyond the formal gardens is a delightful area of woodland which is a perfect natural playground for children. Leading from this is a track to a further area of garden with a large timber outbuilding and an enclosed paddock of just over 1.5 acres.
Stonehouse is well positioned off the Oving Road just a short distance from the heart of this historic Buckinghamshire village set high overlooking the Vale of Aylesbury. The village offers local facilities, a garage with a small supermarket and post office, Public houses and Hairdresser. There are also the ruins of the 12th century Bolebec Castle destroyed on the orders of Oliver Cromwell during the Civil War. Evidence of the old stones can still be seen in many buildings in the village.
The county town of Aylesbury is only 5 miles away with its comprehensive shopping and sporting facilities, together with the mainline station to London Marylebone. There is a well-regarded Primary School in the village and it is in the catchment for the Grammar and High schools in Aylesbury. The area is well served with some excellent schools such as Swanbourne House, Winchester House, Ashfold and Stowe.
