Superb high specification country house with stunning views on the edge of a peaceful Chiltern village

Location

Halewood House occupies a private and secluded setting just off the common at Northend. The setting is elevated and has wonderful views to the east and south over adjoining fields. Northend is one of the prime Chiltern villages and for day to day amenities has good access to Watlington, with access to the M40 via junction 5 or 6. Henley-on-Thames has excellent shopping and recreational facilities, and a train service to London Paddington (via Twyford). High Wycombe and Princes Risborough stations also offer access to London via the Chiltern Line to Marylebone. Oxford, Reading and the West / central London can be easily reached via the M40 linking to the national motorway network.

Description

Halewood House is a stunning, brand new, bespoke country house built by a niche South Oxfordshire developer to exacting standards. Halewood House offers handsome brick elevations under a tiled roof with some fine architectural detail. The house is light and spacious throughout and offers flexible family accommodation which has been finished to a high specification and is wired for sound, TV and has CAT 5 cabling.

The drawing room has oak flooring with a stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove, moulded cornice, bay window with sliding sash windows and splendid double doors on Parliament hinges opening to the study/sitting room. The internal doors are panelled and glazed, and from the light and spacious reception hall there is access to the dining /family room with wonderful triple aspect glazing and doors overlooking and opening to the garden and south facing terrace. This in turn leads to the comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a fine range of wall and floor units by John Lewis of Hungerford with inset double bowl Belfast sink, granite worktops, central island unit with storage cupboards and integrated microwave, range cooker with extractor hood lighting and integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The equally well fitted utility room, like the kitchen, has a wonderfully practical tiled floor with granite worktops, inset double Belfast sink, plumbed in washing machine and dryer and a range of cupboards for storage.

From the reception hall a fine staircase rises to a wide galleried landing with lantern light. The master bedroom has an en suite dressing area, en suite bathroom with marble tiles, built-in wardrobes and doors which open to a superb east facing balcony overlooking the surrounding paddock and countryside beyond. There is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room and three further double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and a large family bathroom.

Outside
Halewood House is approached over a gravel drive through electrically operated gates with video entry system, arriving at a large parking and turning circle to the front of the property and overlooking the paddock. To one side is an attractive oak framed detached garage block comprising an enclosed garage, two car port garage spaces with a large workshop to one side, and with good storage space above the garage. Elegant black painted iron railings separate the formal garden from the paddock, which is served by an access gate off the main drive. To the east and south the property adjoins neighbouring fields over which fine views are enjoyed.

The formal landscaped gardens have been beautifully planted by the front door with box hedging, retaining brick walls and lavender echoing the lovely symmetry of the house. To the south the garden is laid principally to lawn with a wide terrace for entertaining, wrapping round to the rear of the house with mature hedge boundaries. Trees include yew, ash and holly, and a herbaceous border has been under-planted around the yew tree. From the private gardens and terrace distant views to the south-west are enjoyed over the Chilterns.

Total acreage is approximately 1.63 acres.
