Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Constructed of mellow red brick and a warm sand stone under a clay tile roof, Stockgrove Farmhouse is a traditional Victorian house which has been successfully extended.

Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first floor. Of particular note is the large farmhouse kitchen, centered on a traditional Aga, together with a central island and separate dining area.

There is scope to extend the house further into the adjoining tack room and possibly some modernisation of the first floor.

Lying on the borders of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, Stockgrove Farm is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The property was originally part of the Stockgrove Estate, once owned by the politician Henry Hanmer. The Greensand Trust now owns the adjoining Stockgrove Country Park and the nearby Rushmere Park comprising 480 acres of mature woodland and lakes.

Leighton Buzzard is just 3.8 miles distant and provides local amenities, whilst more comprehensive facilities can be found in Milton Keynes 12 miles away.

Communications are excellent; with the A5 linking with the M1 a short distance from the house and fast and frequent trains leaving Leighton Buzzard reaching London Euston in 35 minutes.

There is an excellent selection of schools in the distract, both private and state, including a local primary school in Great Brickhill, Swanbourne Preparatory School for boys and girls, Ashfold School, Aylesbury High and Aylesbury Grammar Schools, Akeley Wood School and Stowe School.

The extensive range of outbuildings provide excellent stabling and potential to create an indoor arena, subject to planning.

A useful timber framed garage and stable/storage block has recently been added with office accommodation above.

The mature gardens wrap around the south and west of the house and include a productive vegetable garden. The paddocks are clearly fenced and provide well drained grazing for ponies, horses or other livestock, together with an all-weather manège.
