Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This character cottage with an interesting local history is situated adjacent to Mentmore Towers in the desirable county of Buckinghamshire. With generous sitting room, private parking, garage and gardens. EPC: F.

3 The Cottage forms part of the original property utilised by the Rothschild family during the construction of Mentmore Towers. The house was subsequently inhabited by the butler for the estate.

Features of this attractive cottage include original shutters and windows, flagstone floor in its traditional country kitchen and pretty gardens.

The sitting room with open fire is wonderfully bright due to its dual aspect, its character enhanced by full height bookshelves. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from a pantry and utility room and opens to further reception space currently used as a study.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is full of character, has stripped floorboards and an aspect over the gardens.
2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom with free-standing bath and wash basin can also be found.

Occupying around a third of an acre, the gardens wrap around the property and, as originally forming part of the Rothschild estate, showcase some heritage trees. The front corner of the plot boasts a summerhouse with internet access, power and light, whilst a detached garage with parking for 2-3 vehicles sits towards the property entrance.
