An exceptionally versatile family home in just over half an acre tucked away in a favoured location.
Finches was originally built in 1972 by a well known local builder and has been substantially added to subsequently to provide wonderfully versatile family accommodation. The current owners have been in residence for more than 30 years and were also responsible for building the indoor swimming pool.
The front door opens into a generous full height reception hall with a galleried landing. The sitting room has a dual aspect with a fireplace as the focal point and doors out on to the terrace; double doors open into a separate dining room. Centrally located the kitchen/breakfast room is the real hub of the home, comprehensively fitted in a ‘Shaker’ style with integrated appliances and polished wood work surfaces. There is a large central island with breakfast bar, limestone floor and doors out to the garden. Off the kitchen there is an exceptionally large utility room and a fully fitted study. To the other end is a generous family room with double doors out on to the garden. Doors lead off to a rear hall with a door out to the carport. There is a play room or an additional bedroom with an en suite shower room. (This section could easily be used as a self-contained annexe).
On the first floor there is a double aspect master bedroom with built in wardrobes in the dressing area and an en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom is also en suite. There are four further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
The superb indoor pool is accessed internally off the sitting room and has two sets of external doors. The pool itself measures 33’ x 13’ and has an electrically operated solid panel safety cover. There is also a shower room and a plant room housing the boiler, filtration plant and ventilation system.
Finches is nicely tucked away down a private driveway which opens up onto a wide paviour forecourt providing ample parking and turning space, bordered by a neat area of lawn and flower shrub beds. There is a carport and large garage.
The rear garden is laid out in two sections; a formal area of garden behind the main body of the house, with an extensive terrace, lawn and well stocked borders with mature shrubs, bushes and trees. The second section of garden is again predominantly lawn and makes an ideal play area. The garden as a whole is fully enclosed on all sides with a high degree of privacy.
Finches occupies an enviable position tucked away down a private driveway just off the Forty Green Road, within easy reach of the town centre which provides an excellent range of shops and train services to London (Marylebone, approximately 25 minutes); close by is the Old Town which provides an excellent choice of restaurants and pubs together with an eclectic mix of shops. The M40 motorway is just over 2 miles away, providing fast access to the M25 and Oxford. The area is well served with excellent schools, both grammar and private, and this home occupies a lovely position close to some beautiful walks through the southern edge of the Chiltern Hills.
