A quite delightful period cottage with compact equestrian facilities occupying a lovely position adjacent to farmland in this idyllic village.
Poppy Cottage is a particularly pretty Grade II Listed cottage of late 17th Century origin, still retaining all its original charm and character. The property occupies a lovely position in this picturesque hamlet set in half an acre adjacent to fields.
The front porch opens into a hallway and into the reception rooms. The main sitting room has a lovely triple aspect and an inglenook fireplace as the focal point. The cosy family room looks down the garden and has a wood burning stove. The study is a good size and could double up as a fourth bedroom. The kitchen/diner has a particularly bright triple aspect and is well fitted with a range of units in a light oak finish with integrated oven and hob. Off the kitchen is a large utility room with a cloakroom.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, with an en suite shower to the master and a family bathroom.
The cottage sits nicely on the plot orientated sideways to the lane. There is a generous area of garden to the front with a mature hedge on the lane boundary and stock fencing to the adjacent field. The brick paviour driveway leads from the five bar gate and provides plenty of parking and turning.
There is a double carport with adjacent outhouses. A stable block with three loose boxes and an open fronted store. There is a small fenced turnout and a further area that could be fenced to provide further turnout.
The property is situated in the charming hamlet of Henton, which is tucked away in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the Chilterns. There are footpaths and bridleways directly out on to open countryside including the Phoenix Trail and Ridgeway Path, as well as livery stables and the Peacock Country Inn. The M40 (J6) is close by giving access to Oxford in the West and London to the East. The Chiltern railway line accessed from Princes Risborough (4 miles away), with services to London Marylebone taking approximately 40 minutes. Both Princes Risborough and Chinnor have good everyday shopping facilities and the historic market town of Thame (within 6 miles) offers a further range of shops and amenities.
There are plenty of options for schooling, with two primary schools in Chinnor and the highly regarded Lord Williams’s School in Thame. Independent schools include Wycombe Abbey (High Wycombe), Ashfold at Dorton and Pipers Corner School (Great Kingshill) for girls.
