An attractive modern house traditionally constructed about 28 years ago with brick elevations under an interlocking concrete tiled roof. In recent years (the last two years in particular), the property has undergone numerous improvements including the addition of a sympathetic single storey extension to the rear, as well as replacement double glazed windows and doors. The house now provides larger, lighter and more versatile accommodation arranged over two floors and occupies an exceptional position directly opposite open countryside with the River Thames and southern tip of the Chiltern Hills beyond.
