Full description

Dovecote is a traditional period building dating back to the early 18th Century, with four bedrooms and has been finished to an exceptionally high standard set in the desirable Buckinghamshire village of Quainton.

'Atmospheric' hardly does justice to this astonishing redevelopment of agricultural homes and farm buildings by experienced developer Romark Homes . The settlement of Grange Farm comprises buildings from the 16th to 19th Centuries which have been painstakingly rebuilt to provide a great balance between preserving the ancient and old yet creating internally modern and functional homes for luxury living .

Romark Homes have undertaken a 'bottom up' rebuilding of the six units at the site using high quality materials and building techniques to create warm light and substantial properties with state of the art kitchens and bathrooms while sympathetically retaining the atmosphere there important buildings deserve '

History of Grange Farm
Shipton Lee (Grange Farm) was a Domesday manor granted before 1146 to Thame Abbey and remained a monastic possession until the dissolution in 1539. In 1540 it was granted to Peter and Angus Dormer who had been lessees since 1534. The manor remained in the Dormer family until 1764 when it was sold to John Calcraft. The farm was sold again in 1788 to Thomas Quintin of Hatley St. George, Cambs, in whose family it remained until the late 19th century when it subsequently passed to corpus Christi College, Oxford. The Fenemore family were tenant farmers from 1932 until its sale to Romark Homes in 2012.

Originally, the Dovecote, built in the early 18C, this building would have been free standing. The additions to the north and west elevations and the casement windows in the dovecote itself are 19C. The bread oven in the Master Bedroom is probably early 17C and was originally one of two ovens used in what was once a bakery next door in Wisteria cottage.

The field with Dovecote is approximately 2 acres and includes two of the medieval ponds, one of which has evolved naturally as a reed bed.

The village of Quainton is situated approximately seven miles from Aylesbury and has its own popular village primary school as well as being situated in the catchment for the highly regarded Waddesdon C of E secondary school.

The village itself remains relatively unspoiled with an interesting mixture of modern and character homes and still retains its picturesque village green. Within the village there are two local pubs together with a butchers shop and a village shop. Local rail links can be found close by at Aylesbury Vale Parkway which is approximately five miles away. Aylesbury town with its full range of shopping and schooling facilities is approximately seven miles away. Junction nine of the M40 is approximately 14 miles away providing excellent local road links.
