Description

Beautifully appointed large modern family home with landscaped gardens overlooking the Chiltern Hills, perfectly situated atop the hillside in a convenient location between Henley and Marlow

Description

Summerhill House is a most impressive family home, situated in an idyllic setting along a quiet and private no-through road, with the house and its beautifully landscaped gardens having far-reaching views over the Hambleden Valley and the surrounding Chiltern Hills. Set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the home belies its convenient location being easily accessed from the M40, and within striking distance of both Marlow and Henley-on-Thames.

The house was built to an exacting standard in 2013 by the current owner, with an eye on building in a tradition manner and a timeless design, effortlessly blending that brief with all the desired modern conveniences such as limestone tiled and engineered wood floors with underfloor heating, a contemporary kitchen with electric AGA and a range of premium integrated appliances, Cat 5 cabling, RAKO lighting, a Control 4 entertainment system and an air circulation system on the ground floor. Though it has a wealth of technological benefits, the house is built in a traditional style, with country-inspired interiors complementary to the rural setting and handsome red brick elevations in keeping with the local vernacular. The neutral colour palette throughout, high ceilings and tall windows affords an abundance of natural light and gives the house a very light and airy feel.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and amounts to around 4400 sq ft, with a choice of reception areas to easily facilitate big family gatherings and celebrations. On the ground floor there is an entrance hallway leading to a large drawing room, playroom, study and open plan family/dining room. There are a number of service rooms, including two WCs, boot room, laundry room and pantry. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with dressing room and stylish en suite bath/shower room, three further double bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom. There are a further two double bedrooms, a shower room and a useful large storeroom on the top floor.

The house is set within landscaped gardens of nearly half-an-acre, which have been beautifully laid out to best enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside. The gardens include formal lawned areas bordered by a range of shrub plants and flowerbeds, a kitchen garden and greenhouse, a summerhouse and store. To the front there is a detached garage with parking opposite.

Location

Summerhill House is set in an enviable position, atop the hillside giving commanding views over the surrounding Chiltern Hills towards Hambleden Valley. The villages of Bolter End and Lane provide for local needs with a village shop, farm shop, livery yard and café, along with a few well regarded local pubs and restaurants.

The pretty riverside towns of Marlow and Henley-on-Thames (5 miles and 8 miles respectively) offer an eclectic mix of local independent and national retailers, as well as numerous bars, cafes and restaurants, while the larger towns of High Wycombe and Princes Risborough provide more extensive facilities.

Bolter End sits high in the Chiltern Hills, in an area of Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a vast network of footpaths, bridleways and country lanes ideal for walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders.

The property enjoys a convenient location within reach of both the M4 and M40 motorways with access to central London, Birmingham and Heathrow. Rail links are also excellent, with mainline services from High Wycombe and Princes Risborough to London Marylebone and Marlow (via Maidenhead’s Elizabeth Line station) to London Paddington.

Buckinghamshire is renowned for its choice of state and private schools. The county is one of the few to maintain grammar schools which include The Royal Grammar School and John Hampden, High Wycombe (for boys), Wycombe and Beaconsfield High Schools (for girls). Independent preparatory schools include Godstowe, Pipers Corner (for girls) and Crown House (for boys and girls) to name a few.
