Full description

Knives Farm is a lovely, Grade II listed farmhouse situated on the fringes of this popular Chiltern village. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with period features throughout including wood paneling, inglenook fireplaces, wall and ceiling beams. The house has evolved over many years, resulting in accommodation which flows well with bright, spacious rooms, wood burning stoves in the reception areas and an AGA in the kitchen. However, there is still plenty of scope for updating and to enable the buyer to put their own stamp on it.There is additional accommodation in the form of a self contained, two bedroomed flat over the triple garage block with access via an external staircase and across a roof terrace. Outside, the formal gardens extend to just over half an acre and are divided into two distinct areas with a colourful, landscaped garden behind the kitchen with an ornamental fish pond and lawns leading down to the paddock beyond. The front is well screened with mature hedges and specimen trees, being level and mainly to lawn. The large driveway offers ample parking leading to the triple garage.Additionally, the property benefits from a one and a half acre paddock to the rear of the property that overlooks the open fields and countryside beyond.
