Nearby is the Holy Trinity Church, parts of which date back to the 12th century and First and Middle schools.

Although conveniently located for the countryside of The Chilterns, the property is well-placed for commuting to central London from Beaconsfield and High Wycombe train stations, both a few miles distant. Road connections are also good with the A404, which links with junction 4 of the M40 (leading to the M25 and M4) and the M4 (junction 8/9) for the West.

Henley and Marlow offers rowing clubs and the local towns have popular rugby, football and tennis clubs.

Buckinghamshire is renowned for its choice and standard of schooling. The county is one of the last to maintain the traditional grammar school system and independent schools in the area include Eton College, Wycombe Abbey, Caldicott, The Beacon, Godstowe and Davenies.

Description

An imposing wing of this landmark Victorian house, the accommodation is spacious with period features such as fireplaces, high ceilings, panelling and cellarage. All set in wonderful formal gardens in the heart of the village.

The entrance hall has a cloakroom adjacent and leads into the wonderfully proportioned dining hall with its high ceilings, fireplace and alcove display and storage area. A wide staircase leads to the upper floors and a doorway leads down to the extensive cellarage. The drawing room is equally impressive with a further feature fireplace, panelled walls, windows overlooking the rear garden and walk in bay window to the side. The garden room lies to the very rear of the house and is a relaxing room to enjoy the formal gardens with French doors onto the rear terrace. The kitchen offers a range of modern units with tiled floors and a door to the breakfast room with part glazed roof and doors to the rear gardens and front of the house. Further steps lead down to the cellars.

On the first floor the large landing is flooded with light from the large windows to the rear. The master bedroom is a fine room with fitted wardrobes, a walk in bay window with rear aspect views over the gardens. The en suite bathroom is fitted in a modern suite with cabinetry and an over bath shower. There are two further bedrooms on this floor one with a hand basin and the other with a fitted wardrobe, there is also a family bathroom again with an over bath shower. On the second floor are two further bedrooms with skylight windows, eaves storage and hand basins.

Outside
The house is approached over a gravel driveway providing parking with high hedging to the front offering seclusion. There is a single garage and a gate leading to the rear. The rear garden is a sheer delight being formally landscaped with a host of attractive flowering shrubs providing summer colour and mature hedging and trees. Terrace areas lie adjacent to the house with the rear elevation bedecked by a fine Wisteria. A flagstone path leads to the rear of the garden which is mainly laid to lawn to a timber store and a Weeping Willow. The gardens offer a high degree of seclusion.
