Full description

This unique three bedroom detached single story property has a wealth of history dating back to circa 1850. It was originally the laundry for the Manor House which is now Akeley Wood Senior School.

Adjacent to the property are the grounds of Stowe Landscape Gardens and the area itself is an Area of Outstanding Natural Landscape. Indeed, one of the follies from Stowe can be seen from the lane approaching the property.

It is approximately 1.8 miles to Akeley Village and 3.5 miles to Buckingham Town Centre, which is a quaint historic market town thriving in a wealth of history and offers a variety of cafes, restaurants, pubs, hotels, doctors, dentists, a hospital, a leisure centre, shops and supermarkets. More comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities can be found in nearby Milton Keynes which is approximately 14 miles. Educational facilities include primary and secondary schools including the popular Royal Latin grammar school, for which this property is in the catchment area, and the University of Buckingham. Stowe School is also in close proximity as well as Akeley Wood School. There are also good road links to the M1 and M40 motorways. Railway stations can be found at Milton Keynes for London Euston and Bicester for London Marylebone.?

The property benefits from original features which include the internal doors and hidden ceiling beams in the reception room.

It comprises a spacious reception room with French style doors to the garden and a multi fuel burning stove, dining room, a spacious refitted kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, walk in pantry/store room, three bedrooms, main bathroom, shower room and a garden office/studio. The extensive garden includes a small woodland. Access is via a gate way to a shingled driveway with parking for several vehicles

While the property is a perfect family home, it is on a substantial plot of approximately ¾ acre so there is ample opportunity for further improvement/development, subject to planning permission. It would be an ideal project if one is looking for same.
