Approached via a long driveway, Mayertorne Manor sits amid its own land in a secluded setting surrounded by woodland and paddocks.

Constructed in the late 18th Century of brick under a slate roof, the accommodation is arranged over three floors with high ceilings and good proportions throughout. Internally, Mayertorne Manor is full of character and beautifully presented.

The front door leads into the reception hall and onwards into a light and spacious drawing room with a fireplace to one end and floor to ceiling sash windows overlooking the immaculate gardens. The drawing room flows through to a grand dining room, perfect for entertaining. Beyond lies the stylishly finished kitchen with wall and base units, a gas range cooker and an island unit with a unique marble finish.

To the right of the reception hall, an elegant staircase leads downstairs to a cosy sitting room and separate study, together with a bedroom suite and bathroom providing excellent guest accommodation. French doors in the study open out to a terraced seating area adjoining the fine gardens.

The staircase from the reception hall rises to the first floor landing and the four main bedrooms, including a charming master bedroom suite which has an en suite dressing room and bathroom.

Mayertorne Manor is a spectacular Grade II Listed manor house set just 2.5 miles from the historic market town of Wendover within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wendover offers an excellent range of day to day shops, boutiques, banks and restaurants. It has a church and a number of public houses. For a greater selection of amenities, Amersham lies 8 miles away.

Mayertorne Manor affords excellent communications with a Chiltern Line station at Wendover providing a fast and frequent service to London Marylebone in approximately 50 minutes. Access by road is excellent via the A41 at Tring, providing direct access to the M25. Heathrow Airport is 25 miles away.

Buckinghamshire is noted for its excellent schooling, including Aylesbury Grammar School, together with Dr Challoner's grammar school for boys at Amersham and for girls at Little Chalfont. Locally there are a number of highly-regarded independent schools including Stowe School, Wycombe Abbey, Godstowe, Berkhamsted, Ashfold Preparatory School and The Beacon.

The surrounding countryside provides an array of sporting amenities including golf at Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross and the Stoke Park Country Club, and motor racing at Silverstone. There is also a great selection of countryside walks in the area, together with excellent riding opportunities.

The gardens and grounds provide a superb, mature setting for the house, laid mainly to lawn and studded with a selection of specimen trees. Most notable are the 120 year old Wellingtonia, a Mulberry and two cedar of Lebanon. The driveway winds past a pond which attracts a variety of wildlife, culminating in a paved parking and turning area.

To the west is a charming walled garden with formal flower beds, the tennis court and a rose and honeysuckle clad pergola. A range of useful outbuildings provide storage on the east wall. The house overlooks the principal gardens and the well fenced paddock which lies to the south of the house. Adjoining is a parcel of mixed woodland.
