The picturesque Anglo Saxon village of Whaddon , which draws its name from the 5th Century word for 'hill where wheat is grown', offers tranquil rural living, yet is situated just 5.4 miles from Milton Keynes railway station, offering a fast train service to London, Euston (from 34 minutes).
The village is at the centre of the ancient Whaddon Chase, the site for many centuries of royal hunting lands and now a site of 'Special Landscape Interest'. During the Second World War nearby Whaddon Hall served as a communications headquarters for MI6 and in 1940 the 'Station X' wireless interceptor was relocated here from Bletchley Park.
This is an archetypal English country village and yet is conveniently located for the wide ranging domestic, commercial and leisure facilities of Milton Keynes and Buckingham, with Bicester and Oxford also being easily accessible. Whaddon is well positioned for access to both the M1 and M40 motorways.
Whaddon is fortunate to have its own infant school and the village falls within the catchment area for the Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham. Independent schools nearby include Stowe, Swanbourne, Akeley Wood, Thornton College and Winchester House.
A gated gravelled drive provides ample parking for a large number of vehicles and also serves the garage. The attached double garage has power, light and an integral door from the utility room.
The property occupies an enclosed garden plot of 0.64 of an acre. The garden is laid in the main to lawn over a shallow double tier and features an interesting collection of maturing specimen trees, shrubs and plants. The gardens are an excellent vantage point from which to fully appreciate the impressive country views.
