A charming period cottage with a wonderful outlook, set beautifully in 3.5 acres adjacent to Whiteleaf golf course, amidst glorious Chiltern countryside.
The exceptional setting of the house offers a golden opportunity to enjoy a slice of rural life yet be within easy commuting distance of London. The property, which is Grade II listed and is believed to date from the 17th Century, offers charming accommodation and having been in the same ownership for many years, now requires general modernisation.
The original part of the cottage is steeped in charm with exposed wall timbers and beams, inglenook fireplace, leaded light windows and original quarry tiled floors. In the later addition there is a generous double aspect sitting room with doors out to the garden with spectacular views over the grounds and the woodland beyond. There is also a study with a deep bay window and an additional separate downstairs bathroom and WC. The family room has a dual aspect and a lovely inglenook fireplace. There is a separate dining room which has a secondary staircase to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the front garden and is fitted with units and a walk in larder.
There are four double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, although as is often the case with period cottages, the fourth bedroom is accessed through the third.
The property is approached via a long drive passing the paddocks up to a double garage and log store with plenty of adjacent parking. The immediate gardens are delightful and provide the perfect setting, with mature shrubs, plants and climbing roses.
The outdoor pool is private and securely fenced, surrounded by lawn with a summer house containing the filtration system. There are two timber stable blocks comprising six loose boxes plus a tack room, hay store and further store room. The paddocks are enclosed with a mixture of post and rail fencing and natural hedging.
The hamlet of Cadsden nestles into the Chiltern hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty adjoining the village of Whiteleaf. Close by there is a good Gastro Pub and Whiteleaf Golf Club. There are bridleways and footpaths, including the Ridgeway path, close to the property offering miles of countryside to explore. The market town of Princes Risborough is just 1½ miles away providing shopping facilities, banks, library, sporting facilities, swimming pool/fitness centre and mainline railway service to London Marylebone. Great Missenden is approximately five miles away with its historic high street and mainline railway service to London Marylebone. Buckinghamshire is renowned for its education system which includes the Grammar schools.
