Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built six years ago by the current owners, Orchard House perfectly combines the traditional with the practicality of a newly built home and as a result the property is immaculately presented. The classic brick and flint elevations with sash windows and a tiled roof is not what one often expects from a modern home and offers no compromise on style with the elegant moulded bay to the rear. The accommodation is spread over four floors and is well proportioned with enormous attention to detail throughout.

A particular feature is the beautifully finished kitchen/breakfast room with extensive hand built wall and base units with an Aga and space for an American fridge freezer. This is linked to the superb vaulted family room which has bi-folding doors opening onto the south facing paved terrace.

On the lower ground floor is the exceptional indoor swimming pool which is in a stone surround and the adjoining rooms (currently used as a cinema and games room) could provide secondary accommodation for staff or a dependent relative. A lift connects all four floors.

The hamlet of Forty Green lies a mile outside the market town of Beaconsfield and has a well-regarded public house, The Royal Standard of England. Within Beaconsfield there is a good selection of shops including a Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, boutique shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. There are superb road and rail links to London and trains from Beaconsfield reach Marylebone from 22 minutes whilst Heathrow Airport is 18 miles away.

Buckinghamshire is renowned for its choice and standard of independent and state schooling. The county maintains excellent grammar schools including Beaconsfield High School for girls and for boys there is John Hampden Grammar School and The Royal Grammar School. Independent schools include Davenies and High March in Beaconsfield, The Beacon in Chesham Bois, Godstowe and Wycombe Abbey in High Wycombe, Eton College and Berkamsted School.

There is a wide selection of golf courses in the region including Burnham Beeches, Beaconsfield, Lambourne, Denham and Stoke Park.

Orchard House is approached over a gravel drive and sits within approximately 2 acres. The gardens and grounds lie principally to the rear of the house and comprise an expanse of lawn bordered by mature trees and hedges. There is a south facing terrace perfect for entertaining and from here a path leads to the tennis court. There is a paddock beyond.
