Old Orchard House is a stunning update of a 1920’s built house of immense character. The owners who have been in occupation for less than 10 years have completely transformed the house to a modern Country Manor of significant proportions. Set within over 2 acres of grounds that include a tennis court and approached via a long gravel driveway from Parsonage Lane, this really is a unique opportunity that offers tremendous space and privacy and is yet within easy access of major access routes into central London.

SPECIFICATION
As part of the programme the current owners extended and completely refurbished the house and yet were conscious of retaining an air of character throughout. The property was comprehensively re-wired and re-plumbed and benefits from under floor heating to the kitchen, breakfast room and bathrooms. There are 5 amp lamp sockets throughout the property as well as an integrated music system and Lutron lighting. Additionally, the hot water system is pressurised with commercial grade cylinders. An abundance of oak joinery may be seen throughout the house and includes the skirting, architraving, certain floor boards, staircase and a number of the windows. With the exception of the gardener’s WC the sanitary ware is all Villeroy & Boch, the master en suite bathroom, in particular, being of considerable note. The majority of bedrooms have built in wardrobes and storage.

Arguably the hub of a modern family home is the kitchen/breakfast area and in designing this space at Old Orchard House the owners have spared to expense on the scale of development and this is quite frankly a jaw-dropping space that incorporates a vaulted breakfast/family area with views stretching out over the magnificent rear gardens. The kitchen itself has been comprehensively fitted with a range of oak and hand painted units that incorporate a modern twist on a French dresser. The kitchen comes fitted with a range of built in Miele appliances which include a stainless steel combination microwave and oven, separate steam oven, plate warmer and coffee machine, furthermore there is a wine cooler, two cold storage drawers, a separate Maytag stainless steel American fridge/freezer, commercial grade Britannia oven with 6 ring gas burner and additional hot plate along with two large ovens, there is a vegetable washer tap set into a large island unit with pop-up sockets and this space also provides vegetable prep areas as well as bar stool seating. This considered and well planned accommodation is worth an internal inspection.
GROUNDS
The property is well positioned within its own private grounds. From Parsonage Lane one drives up to an electronically operated wooden gate with video entryphone system and this leads onto a long gravel drive that affords a view down towards the house and garage. To the right hand side of the driveway there sits a completely refurbished tennis court and there is a lightly wooded feel to this approach with mature trees and hedging. Situated immediately to the front of the property there is a triple garage block which is alarmed and the owners have added a pitch roof to this area which can be used as additional storage and, subject to planning, could incorporate a large granny annexe/staff suite. (We would advise all purchasers, however, to make their own investigation into the possibility of this happening.) There are lawns and terracing that surround the property with the majority of the rear garden being again laid to shaped areas of lawn incorporating mature evergreen and deciduous trees of particular note is a large Cedar tree that sits within the property, again the rear garden is surrounded by numerous trees giving the house a delightful lightly wooded backdrop.
LOCATION
The house is situated approximately 1 mile away from Farnham Common village centre which has seen significant recent investment and houses a range of boutique style shops and restaurants along with a Sainsburys and Tesco express. There are an abundance of well respected private and state schools within the local area and South Buckinghamshire remains part of the grammar school education system. The nearby town centres of Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield provide more comprehensive shopping along with a main line train service to London (Marylebone) whilst to the south Iver and Slough stations provide a fast and frequent service into London (Paddington). There are connections to both the M40 and M4 that are close at hand making this ideal for London or the international commuter. A number of sports clubs and societies may be found within the local area and these include the world famous Stoke Park Golf and Country Club which is just a short 2 mile drive away.
