The Property
Manor Farm House enjoys a prominent position within this popular North Buckinghamshire village. Constructed of stone under a slate roof, the house dates mainly from the Georgian period. Farmed by the Fairey family for most of the 20th century the farm buildings and barns have now been converted into four houses and the farmhouse was refurbished by the current owners. The refurbishment included re-roofing, cleaning and re-facing the stonework and exposing the impressive inglenookfireplaces in the dining and sitting rooms. Other period features remain including panelled doors and exposed ceiling timbers.

The farmhouse is extremely well presented and offers comfortable accommodation over two floors. The layout is flexible and with two staircases there is the potential to create independent annexe facility for dependent relative or alternatively used as a home office, media room or games room/gym. Complementing the house is the attractive south facing private rear garden with dining and seating areas. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate its inherent qualities and lifestyle opportunities.

The Accommodation
A six paneled front door opens into the entrance hall, which leads through to the reception hall with exposed stone flagstone floor and raised stone fireplace. Doors from the reception hall open to the garden and courtyard. Lying to the rear of the hall is the utility room with fitted units including stainless steel sink and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. Steps lead up to a glazed door overlooking and opening into the garden. Adjoining is the half tiled cloakroom.

The three main reception rooms run along the front of the property and all benefit from exposed wooden beams and working sash windows with bespoke wooden blinds. The sitting room enjoys a dual aspect with stone Inglenook fireplace and raised brick hearth. A drinks cupboard lies in the corner. Beyond is the cosy family room with brick fireplace and recessed book shelving.

This room also enjoys a dual aspect with full height glazed door opening into the rear garden.

The dining room lies across the hall and is conveniently located next to the kitchen with cream Shaker base and eye level units. Cooking facilities are provided by a Smeg stainless steel range cooker with five ring gas hob and extractor hood above. There is a recess for housing a dishwasher with associated plumbing.

First Floor
The main staircase gently rises to the part galleried landing. The master bedroom enjoys its own wing. The bedroom has a dual aspect along with period cast iron fireplace. Steps lead up to the recently refitted tiled en suite bathroom with oval bath and shower ring above, wash basin and low level W.C. Within the bathroom are a pair of deep fitted wardrobes.

Three further bedrooms lead off the inner landing providing two doubles and a single. The single is currently being used as a study. Lying to the rear of the house and accessed from the landing or rear staircase is a further double bedroom/studio benefitting from views over the garden and courtyard. The bedrooms are served by the recently fitted fully tiled family bathroom with separate corner shower cubicle.

Lying to the east of the house and accessed from within the courtyard or garden is a garden store/ workshop with gardeners W.C. beyond.

The property is approached over a shared driveway which leads between two stone piers into a gravelled courtyard. To the left hand side is the former brick stable block, which has been converted to garaging. Manor Farm House owns the first two bays with two pairs of timber doors opening into two large single garages with connecting door. The original feed manger and hay rack remain, along with loft hatch allowing access to boarded loft offering a useful storage facility. The farmhouse enjoys private parking for four cars within the courtyard.

The south facing walled garden is a pure delight. A paved seating terrace runs along the rear elevation and looks across the elevated lawn edged by well stocked herbaceous borders.

A brick path dissects the lawn and leads to a circular brick seating area. Running along the southern gable end of the house is a further raised dining terrace with brick built barbecue. Mature trees grace the southern boundary producing dappled shade.
