Full description

The Property
Built by renowned developers Martin Grant Homes, approximately 21 years ago this fine home is one of just three properties enjoying frontage to a tucked away spur situated off of Manor Close, itself a private road comprising less than 3 dozen homes in its entirety.

Already extending to approximately 2900 sq ft valid planning consent has been gained for a significant two storey extension including an exciting double volume reception space. This represents an opportunity, in our opinion, to acquire a fine home, representing exceptional value compared with any other home currently available within this excusive address.

An overhung open porch leads to an elegant reception hall with aesthetically pleasing return staircase to the first floor and original herringbone woodblock floor. Doors lead to a sizeable guest cloakroom, coat cupboard and additional storage cupboard respectively. Twin doors access the refined and well-proportioned drawing room with sliding patio doors and an additional wide window both to the rear garden aspect. The Adams style fireplace houses a coal effect gas fire and is complemented by elegant cornicing. Both the additional ground floor reception rooms enjoy similar and impressive proportions the formal dining room accessed from both reception hall and drawing room with the woodblock floor continuing throughout and windows to the front and side. The comfortable family room can itself be accessed from both the hall and the kitchen/breakfast room and enjoys an aspect to the front overlooking the spacious drive.

The spacious kitchen/breakfast room features defined kitchen and informal dining areas and is fitted with an extensive range of quality traditional units at base and eye level, water softener, Neff stainless steel double electric oven and Belling stainless steel 5 burner gas hob with an extractor over. The informal dining area features a continuation of the tiled floor and sliding patio doors onto the rear garden. A door leads to the adjacent utility room, with space for white goods and, in turn, a personal door accessing the integral double garage, and back door accessing the side garden.

The transverse first floor landing fills the property with borrowed light from the window on the front elevation half landing and offers a double airing cupboard and doors to the five double bedrooms. The well proportioned master bedroom boasts an extensive range of bespoke wardrobe furniture by Hammonds and the dressing area leads to an exceptional ensuite bathroom enjoying impressive dimensions, double sized bath on a raised dais, separate shower, wc, bidet and basin. The second bedroom has extensive wardrobes and a beautifully refurbished ensuite shower room. The three remaining bedrooms are all doubles, two of which include wardrobes with the smallest still a respectable size. The family bathroom is another impressive room with a four-piece suite in place.

The Gardens
The majority of the property s frontage is devoted to hard landscaped brick paviers with parking for several vehicles leading to the double garage accessed via remote controlled twin up and over doors and having light and power and an internal door to the utility room. A gate to the right side of the property accesses a respectable area of side garden on which is currently sited a timber store/studio, a large timber shed/store and an aluminium framed greenhouse.

The rear gardens are well proportioned and private, comprising two paved terraces, immediately to the rear of the property to facilitate alfresco entertaining and being illuminated by security/courtesy lighting. Dwarf retainers and easy-riser steps lead to an expanse of level manicured lawn surrounded by abundantly stocked deep borders and the boundaries are screened by mature bushes, trees and panel fencing. There is a third sun terrace to the rear corner of the garden and a timber garden studio. As previously mentioned this particular property and just two neighbouring homes are served by a long private approach drive.

Manor Close is a highly desirable and exclusive setting for a small number of significant homes of diverse design situated off Manor Road in Penn. Residents benefit from a remote controlled vehicle barrier enabling access from both Penn and Hazlemere, yet preventing non-resident through-traffic. Manor Road, Manor Close and Hearn Close constitute, arguably, the most prestigious residential address in the locality.

Penn is the quintessential English village, with character pubs, churches, common and village pond. Hazlemere has amenities providing for all daily needs. The larger centres of Beaconsfield and High Wycombe each provide extensive shopping and leisure facilities and mainline rail access to London Marylebone and Birmingham. The M40 motorway can be accessed at High Wycombe, Loudwater or Beaconsfield connecting in turn with the M25, M4 and thus into the national motorway network. The area is undoubtedly reputed for its schools in both the public and the private sectors for children of all ages including nationally renowned Grammar schools.
