DESCRIPTION

A charming house and separate cottage of great character in large mature gardens about two miles from Great Missenden village and railway station.

Set in approximately five acres of land, 'Little Aufrics' is believed to have been built circa 1900 with later modification.

The property is approached via a hedge-lined driveway leading to the carriage driveway and pretty front of the house. The traditional clay tiled roof and large chimney stack are part of the Art and Crafts charm. There is a fully fenced hard tennis court to one side behind mature cedar trees.

On the ground floor, the principle rooms are set to the rear of the house to enjoy the southerly views over the mature gardens and comprise the drawing room - a triple aspect room with a high ceiling, open fireplace and double casement door to the magnificent rear garden. The adjoining sitting room has a fireplace with gas/coal fire in a beautiful marble surround and fitted bookcase. There is a separate dining room with three quarter height panelling - a sure Edwardian sign of a wealthy home -a conservatory, large utility room, study, cloakroom and ample storage. This is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts era with comforting wood forming an important element to the interior design.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite comprises a large double aspect bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and a large dressing room with luxurious built-in cupboards. The en-suite bathroom is well equipped with a classic white suite of bath, shower cubicle and twin wash hand basins. There are four further bedrooms, a shower room and family bathroom.
The house is set in just under five acres of gardens with a wide terrace to the rear of the sun room leading to the main lawn. A bluebell wood beyond with a large gazebo, simply adds to the elegant grandeur.

To one side of the house is a former tennis lawn with copse and three garden sheds. Beyond the hard tennis court at the front is the detached double garage.

'Croyland' is located on the left of Little Aufrics and is a large cottage providing versatile accommodation. Approached via a gravelled driveway with mature hedges providing a secluded private garden, 'Croyland' offers three bedrooms, family bathroom, lounge, dining room and fitted kitchen laid out across two floors. A garage and ample parking for visitors completes the cottage. 'Croyland' could also be reconnected to the main house to provide further accommodation, subject to the usual consents.

Little Aufrics really is a unique find. Exuding age and charm and well maintained by the current owners, viewing of this substantial residence is highly recommended.
