A spectacular individual family home set in beautiful private gardens in the lee of Coombe Hill.
Woodlands was built in 2005 by the present owners to their exacting specification, incorporating many unique and bespoke features that make this a hugely appealing family home. Ecology featured heavily in the build with a ground-source heat pump, which also heats the pool as well as the underfloor heating, together with a ventilation and heat recovery system which helps provide exceptional energy efficiency.
The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall, with a central maple staircase and fireplace complete with wood burning stove. The comfortable sitting room has a bright dual aspect and an impressive inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Off the sitting is a bright conservatory with wonderful views of the garden and woodland beyond. The conservatory features a glass floor that allows natural light to drop into the basement level studio. On the other side of the hall is a formal dining room and study. The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the rear with uninterrupted view of the garden and beyond. Well equipped with integrated appliances and finished in maple with granite work surfaces, the units are complemented by a central island. Off the kitchen lies a useful utility room.
A staircase leads down to the basement level which due to the clever design still receives natural light, with the pool area having window that opens to the outside. There is a large fitness studio which is currently used for private lessons but would make a superb gym. The pool room also has a changing room, cloakroom and separate shower. Completing this level is a family or games room, which has a spiral staircase and separate access.
The galleried and vaulted landing is a fabulous space with charming sitting area with low level windows allowing views to the front. The master bedroom is again vaulted and has double doors which open out onto a spectacular glass balcony overlooking the garden and the wooded escarpment. The en suite bathroom is well appointed and has a separate shower. There are three further double bedrooms (one with an en suite shower) and a family bathroom.
The property is set well back on the plot, approached via a long gravel driveway which has parking space at the foot of the drive as well at directly in front of the house. From the front stretches an area of lawn with mature trees and shrubs. The rear garden is a delight, full of vitality and colour. An area of decking connects from the house to a paved terrace with lawn beyond. The centre piece is the magnificent rockery with a waterfall which cascades into a natural pond. There are interesting little ‘pockets’ throughout the garden including a summerhouse perfectly positioned to catch the evening sun.
Situated less than a mile from the village centre, Woodlands stands in secluded grounds with the stunning backdrop of the wooded escarpment leading up to Coombe Hill. With its eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, Wendover is without doubt one of the most appealing high streets in the Chilterns. There are numerous clubs and recreational facilities in the village including tennis, squash and bowls. The Chiltern Line is within walking distance and offers an excellent reliable service to London Marylebone (45 mins), whilst access to the M25 can be found via the A41(M) at Tring (4 miles), or alternatively the M40 at High Wycombe (11 miles)
Buckinghamshire has been renowned for its schooling for many years. Wendover has a strong selection of schooling; Ofsted rated 'outstanding' primary schools, the well regarded John Colet secondary school and the catchment grammar schools, Aylesbury Grammar (boys), Sir Henry Floyd (mixed) and Aylesbury High School (girls). Further education can be found at Aylesbury College.
