A charming period home tucked away in a wonderful position in this much admired Buckinghamshire village.
The Elms is a delightful Grade II Listed cottage dating in origin from the 17th Century, steeped in character and set in a wonderful mature south facing garden.
The front door leads into an entrance hall with doors into the principal reception rooms. The double aspect sitting room has a magnificent inglenook fireplace and a staircase up to the first floor. The dining room again enjoys a double aspect. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted and leads through to the family room, which is a slightly later addition and enjoys a dual aspect with a casement door out to the garden. There is a second staircase up to the first floor.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, with the large master having a double aspect. There is a family bathroom and a generous shower room.
The property stands in a wonderful plot with a fabulous rear garden. The house is approached by a generous driveway which provides ample parking for numerous vehicles. There is a detached thatched barn with double doors to the front, internally a staircase leads to a first floor which is currently used a gym but would also make a good home office.
The gardens are a delight, laid principally to lawn with mature boundaries and flower beds providing a profusion of colour. In addition there is also a small orchard.
The Elms is tucked away in a quiet corner 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.
