Situated in a sought after area on the outskirts of Bourne End, yet within a short drive of Beaconsfield. The M4 (J 8/9) can be joined at Maidenhead giving access to London, Heathrow and the M25 network. The M40 (J2) can be reached at Beaconsfield, which also offers an excellent range of shopping and schooling facilities and main line station to London Marylebone, approximately 25 minutes on the fast train. Bourne End station provides a regular service to London Paddington with journey times from 38 minutes. There are an excellent range of sporting facilities nearby, with golf, sailing, rowing and Wycombe leisure centre close by. South Buckinghamshire is also renowned for its schooling, both state and private.


The accommodation is arranged on one floor and is approached via part glazed entrance vestibule with glazed door to entrance hall, which features wood block flooring, coats cupboard, and a door leading to the bedroom wing. Of particular note is the large sitting room (25' x 18'), which features a large picture window and sliding patio doors, which all provide a magnificent outlook over the southerly aspect gardens and grounds, and picturesque stream approximately 16' wide, a tributary of the Thames. Large feature fireplace, ornate coving and wood block flooring, which flows through to the dining room, which has a front aspect. Off the dining room, is a kitchen, which could easily be combined into one room if so desired. There is a personal door from the kitchen to the garaging. In total, there are four bedrooms, three of which have a quite magnificent outlook over the gardens, grounds and stream, and they all have wood block flooring. The smaller front bedroom (bedroom four) could also be used as a study, and overlooks a very private front garden. The master bedroom, which is double aspect, has a small dressing area and door to an en suite bathroom, with original light blue coloured suite. The family bathroom again is original, with a light sage coloured suite. The property benefits from gas fired central heating via radiators, and offers light, bright and spacious living accommodation, the majority of which overlooks what can only be described as one of the most fantastic gardens and grounds in any area, which extend to in all approximately 1.25 acres.

Heronsmead is located in an extremely sought after peaceful and private drive close to the heart of the village. The front garden, which is well enclosed behind a mature hedge, is well stocked with a wide variety of specimen shrubs and trees, with tarmacadam drive leading to a garage with up and over door. "Splendour" is the only word to describe the magnificent park-like gardens and grounds at the back of the house, which boast a wide variety of mature specimen trees, including a Wedding Cake tree, "Living Fossil" Gingko, enormous Silver Birches, Weeping Ash, Liquid Amber (with red-purple autumn colours) and palm trees - a rare variety that can withstand the British winter! The majority of the grounds are laid to lawn and feature a free flowing tributary of the Thames, teaming with fish and a wide variety of birds, including resident herons and kingfishers, and regularly visiting cormorants, great crested grebes, ducks and white swans. This little river even has its own tiny private island (approximately 10ft in diameter) located on the property.
