A 16th Century brick and flint cottage that has been extended and improved and now forms a fine family house in the renowned Hambleden valley with gardens, paddocks and mixed woodland of some 19 acres. Henley on Thames and Marlow are close at hand with London reachable within an hours drive
This enchanting Grade II Listed family home of great character was originally two game keepers cottages built around the 16th Century. The original cottages were built of brick and flint under a tiled roof and have had substantial extensions carried out predominantly in
1995 by the current family. The gardens have been landscaped by Michael Balston and the house has been featured in Midsomer Murders. There is potential to convert the 18th Century listed barn which forms an attractive enclosed courtyard into the main body of the house (subject to Planning Permission).
The property is approached through an automatic wooden 5 bar gate which leads to a gravel parking and turning area. The main house is built around a beautiful courtyard with a water feature and an abundance of perennial colourful shrubs and plants. This is flanked by an 18th Century wooden barn which in turn leads to the solid oak front door. The formal gardens lie to the south and west of the house landscaped around a circular brick terrace with sweeping lawns up to the solar and oil heated swimming pool. There is a hard tennis court and full size manége. There are three wooden stables, two tack rooms, a hay/straw store and a feed store. The timber barn has a w.c. The paddocks (which lead on to mixed woodland) are all fenced and have a water supply and there are outstanding views across the valley towards the windmill at Turville. The gardens and grounds amount to around 19 acres.
