DESCRIPTION

An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a substantial semi-detached residence of character sitting in approximately one third of an acre of beautiful grounds in the idyllic village of Little Missenden. The property offers great potential to personalise and extend, subject to the usual planning consents and planning permission to extend the kitchen was granted in the past, but has now lapsed.

Built by local builder Bazzard in the 1960's with great ceiling height and using centuries old beams, the site is believed to have been the old piggery of Town Farm House, mentioned in The Domesday book.

Accommodation is very spacious and light, with three receptions (a working fireplace is required in the living room, currently fitted with gas fire) cloakroom, kitchen, utility and conservatory to the ground floor. Upstairs, the family bathroom enjoys spectacular views.Three further double bedrooms and a family shower room complete the accommodation. The front bedrooms benefit from amazing views over fields whilst the rooms to the back of the property overlook the expansive gardens and countryside beyond.

The name of Old Orchard is indicative of the heritage apple trees in the gardens including Cox, Bramley and crab apple, along with a spectacular cherry tree blossoming in both pink and white. Approximately one third of an acre, the gardens are a site to behold - with lawns ideal for croquet. An array of lavender gives the garden its English country feel and with the addition of an interesting garden studio with light and power (currently used as a sculptor's studio), the possibilities here are endless. To the front, there is a garage with parking in front for one vehicle. A viewing comes highly recommended.

LOCATION

LITTLE MISSENDEN is a quiet, underplayed village which has moulded its own identity, lying in the Chilterns AONB next to the River Misbourne.

Whilst close enough to Amersham to benefit from all it offers, Little Missenden is a pleasant distance away for those preferring quieter, more close-knit neighbourhoods.

Whilst enjoying such an enviable location, it surrenders nothing in terms of essential facilities. Two quintessential English pubs, a highly regarded infant school and the beautiful Saxon church of St John the Baptist contribute to the village's charm. Add to this the renowned annual Little Festival of Music and Arts and you will understand why this picturesque area is beloved to its residents and is a desirable location for TV and for film companies; most notably for Midsomer Murders.

Little Missenden might appear small, quiet and modest but its real value and worth is still a well-kept secret.
