Vendors Comments - This delightful house is set in the peaceful and tranquil conservation village of Water Stratford, beautifully located amidst the pretty Buckinghamshire countryside. Being conveniently located to several urban towns, it is an excellent hub from which to journey to all parts of the land. The nearest town is Buckingham, with the village being, more or less, equidistant between Milton Keynes and Banbury. Road links are outstanding as is access to rail links to both Euston and Marylebone offering efficient journeys into the capital. Access to a wide range of schools is most convenient, with Stowe Public School being just a short distance away. In addition, the village has a strong sense of community and several sociable events take place to suit a variety of tastes, one being the Jubilee celebrations when a large table was arranged through the centre of the village; a very successful event.

On our house hunting quest in 1998, we were thrilled to discover this small, exclusive, development of interesting, individual, properties nearing completion. In addition, we were able to add our own touches and we also commissioned our own project manager who ensured that everything was completed to our exacting requirements. Built mainly of natural stone, with touches of brick, the house does have the appearance of a traditional cottage. However, once inside, the sense of space, teamed with its perfect design has given us a well proportioned family home which is interesting, elegant and charming. It is a wonderful sociable and friendly home, one which lends itself to easy entertaining, whether the occasion is relaxed or more formal.

Continued - Each room is very special to us but our kitchen/breakfast room is bright and sunny with lovely views out into the garden. We have access straight onto our patio from here, which is particularly lovely on sunny days with our door wide open, but especially convenient when we are dining outside with friends and family. Our garden is a constant source of delight for us. It is mainly laid to lawn and we do have a kitchen garden, but its aspect out into the wider countryside beyond is quite magical and we never tire of savouring its wonderful outlook, watching the seasons unfold, or surveying the animals grazing in the meadow.

Whatever the occasion, entertaining here is forever a pleasure. Our more formal dining room opens through into our west facing conservatory, which is perfect when we have guests. It is now time for us to move, but our life here in this superb family home and location has been outstanding and we are confident its new owners will be as happy and content as we have been.

Location - Water Stratford is a beautiful village located around three miles West of Buckingham and is conveniently located for the M40 which provides access to Birmingham, Oxford and London in addition to the train network providing an easy commute to Marylebone in around 45 minutes.

Buckingham and the surrounding area has been settled for some time with evidence of Roman settlement found in several sites close the River Great Ouse, including a temple south of the A421 at Bourton Grounds which was excavated in the 1960s and dated to the 3rd century AD. A possible Roman building was identified at Castle Fields in the 19th century. Pottery, kiln furniture and areas of burning found at Buckingham industrial estate suggest the site of some early Roman pottery kilns here.

The town suffered from a significant fire that raged through the town centre on 15 March 1725,[8] with the result that many of the main streets of the town were destroyed including Castle Street, Castle Hill and the north side of Market Hill. The result was 138 dwellings (out of a total of 387 in the town at that time) being consumed in the fire. The current fine range of Georgian architecture in these streets today is as a direct result of that fire, but the immediate aftermath was difficult for the town. Collections were made in surrounding towns such as Aylesbury and Wendover to help those made homeless and by 1730, only a third of the homes had been rebuilt. Due to many buildings being considered to be of historic interest, a number of them have been granted 'listed building' status. In the 19th century, it was connected to the London and North Western Railway.
