Offered with No Onward chain is this pretty detached cottage dating back to circa 1920's. It is well presented with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open plan reception dining room, courtyard and lawned gardens. With leaded windows, wooden doors and feature fireplaces it seamlessly combines a characterful feel with modern touches. Its rural location and private garden provide a countryside feel yet the property is within easy reach of the comprehensive facilities of Beaconsfield.


To the front of the property, a door opens into a hallway which houses a practical understairs cupboard. To the right, the Oak floored reception features a brick fireplace with characterful Oak mantel along with an inset woodburning stove to ensure cosy evenings whatever the weather. To the rear, is the semi open plan dining room with windows overlooking the courtyard garden. The kitchen, located adjacent to the dining room, includes a good range of cottage style wall and base units along with a breakfast bar with seating for two. Integrated appliances include an electric hob, extractor and double oven below and there is also space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. A stable door leads out to the rear courtyard garden providing a handy secondary access for those with dogs, shopping or muddy boots! Also on ground floor level is a shower room with inset wash hand basin, WC, shower cubicle and heated towel rail along with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor landing past a pretty original leaded window allowing light to flood in. Bedroom one overlooks the front lawned garden and features an ornate cast iron fireplace (not in use). There are two further bedrooms on this level, overlooking the rear and side of the house and each with built in cupboards with hanging and shelving. The family bathroom also on first floor level comprises a bath with shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The south facing garden is laid mainly to lawn with a central pathway leading directly to the front of the property. Mature trees, hedging and panelled fencing providing a good degree of privacy. A wide block paved pathway leads past the side of the property to a rear courtyard garden where the current owners have two seating areas to maximise both morning and early evening sun. From here, a gate leads out onto a private parking area for two cars (access via Brindle Lane) along with designated additional parking.
