A truly outstanding Georgian Town House right in the heart of this much admired village at the foot of the Chiltern Hills.
This fascinating Grade II Listed landmark property started life as a small farmhouse in 1620 with later additions, then re-fronted in the mid 18th Century with the elegant Georgian façade. The later Victorian addition to the rear probably originally formed the stable block and it now adds significant versatility as a self-contained annex. The elegant proportions provide immense charm and character with many original features of the transcending eras.
The front door opens into the reception hall with a panelled drawing room to one side and a sitting room to the other. The tiled and flagstone floors that run through areas of the ground floor have underfloor heating. The dining room has a lovely inglenook fireplace and flagstone floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with classic Smallbone kitchen units incorporating a central island and a separate breakfast bar, both with granite work surfaces. There are integrated appliances including fridge, dishwasher and gas fired AGA with a gas and electric companion oven. Off the kitchen is a utility room with steps down to a cellar. A staircase leads off the kitchen up to a clever mezzanine level which makes a great TV room. Beyond the kitchen lies a boot room with a door out to the side porch. Completing the ground floor of the main house is an office with a staircase up to a bedroom or study.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms (one en suite) with a family bathroom and dressing room on a half landing. A staircase leads up to the second floor where there are three further attic bedrooms.
Between the annex and the house lies a large double garage with two sets of double wooden doors. The annex has a generous kitchen/diner leading to a large partly vaulted living room with doors opening onto the garden. The double bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom.
To the front of the property steps lead up to the front door with wrought iron railings and a neat box hedge. There is a driveway to the right hand side, leading to a wide forecourt providing ample parking and turning space. In addition to the double garage there is a further double carport.
The gardens are a real surprise extending as a whole to half an acre more or less completely walled to give exceptional privacy. Laid predominantly to lawn flower beds and borders, mature beech hedging and various fruit trees.
Lime Tree House stands right in the heart of the village, close to the pretty High Street with its eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants. Wendover also offers a Library, Dentist, Health Centre and Chemist. For the sports minded in Dobbins Lane you will find the Tennis Club, together with the Squash and Bowls Clubs. Nearby are some lovely rural walks, bridle paths and cycle routes, Coombe Hill, Wendover Woods and the disused arm of the Grand Union Canal. The station is again only a short walk and offers a frequent service to Marylebone (within 45 minutes) on the award winning Chiltern line. The A41(M) can be found between Aston Clinton and Tring, offering a swift connection the M25. Alternatively the M40 is at High Wycombe.
