A beautiful period cottage with a self contained apartment occupying a central position in this much admired Buckinghamshire village.
This delightful Grade II Listed former farmhouse dates in origin from the 16th Century and was lovingly restored by the present owner, who bought the property in 1978 when it had been condemned for human habitation. The property is of wychert construction which is localised to the area and is thatched with Devon Reed Straw. The accommodation offers immense charm throughout and the flat over the garaging makes a wonderful annexe or possibly a home office.
The main sitting room is beautifully timbered with a central inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. The family room has a dual aspect, a door to the garden and a staircase to the first floor. Off the dining room with its quarry tiled floor lies the cloak/shower room. The kitchen/breakfast room is well proportioned with hand made units and an AGA. There is a utility area to one end and a boot room beyond.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, with the master having a spectacular vaulted ceiling. The family bathroom is huge and fitted with a white suite, complemented by bespoke joinery.
Situated over the garaging is this wonderful bright and airy annexe to the main house. There is a large impressive vaulted living room with exposed timbers and brickwork, incorporating a fitted kitchen area. The main bedroom has a full en suite bathroom, the second is also a double and there is a further well-appointed shower room.
The property is approached over a gravel driveway providing ample parking and turning space for several vehicles. The garage block has four bays and up and over doors, plus light and power.
The pretty gardens are laid predominantly to lawn with well stocked flower beds and borders which flower prolifically through the season. There is a delightful water garden, with a pond and small bridge together with a water feature. At the foot of the garden is a substantial outbuilding comprising a shed and two stores, one of which would make a good home office or studio.
Westlington Farm is situated in the heart of this picturesque village just two miles from the thriving village of Haddenham with its fast and frequent rail service to London Marylebone. The nearby county town of Aylesbury offers an extensive range of shopping and entertainment facilities. The historic market town of Thame has one of the prettiest high streets in the area and offers an eclectic mix of shops and supermarkets together with 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.
