Description

Built into the gentle hillside and capitalising on the magnificent views, at first glance from the front the house appears as two storeys whereas in reality there are four.
Entry to the house opens to the generous reception hall which leads to the main kitchen, a separate dining room with an open fireplace, and a guest cloakroom. There is an Aga range in the kitchen as well as a larder whilst the utility room is located on the garden floor. The conservatory/breakfast room adjoins the kitchen and overlooks the gardens and tennis court. Doors at the far end open to the veranda. The dining room, sitting room and principal bedroom suite with a spacious dressing room and en suite bathroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor.
The wide staircase descends to the 30 ft by 16 ft drawing room with a working marble fireplace and two bay windows overlooking the gardens. A dual aspect study has French doors to the side gardens and a large bay window overlooking the main gardens and fountain. Additionally, there is another utility room and cloakroom on this level. Descending once more to the garden level, the staircase opens immediately to the family room and then to the games room with French doors to the bottom lawn terrace; the perfect spot to bask in the summer afternoon sun. The main utility room, storage space and a cloakroom are to be found on this level.
Rising to the first floor, there are five generously sized bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom and two of them are dual aspect. The bedrooms at the rear offer fabulous views over the rolling countryside. A family bathroom and a shower room serve the remaining bedrooms.

Outside

This charming house sits fairly centrally on the plot and is approached via the driveway where there is parking for several cars in addition to the detached garage. The mature gardens and grounds are truly delightful. The top lawn leads to the tennis court, indoor pool and hot tub area with a shower and changing room. Additionally, there is a large vegetable garden, a greenhouse and several sheds for storing garden equipment and furniture.

Situation

Great Missenden is an historic village that appears in the Domesday Book and in times past it formed part of the coach trade prior to the opening of the train station in 1892. Since then the village has become a commuter haven with a rail service to London Marylebone in approximately 40 minutes. In addition to the shops catering for day-to-day needs, there are doctors' surgeries, a dentist, a Post Office and a surprising number of cafes and restaurants considering the village's modest size. There are also country pubs aplenty in the surrounding area as well as an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways. Buckinghamshire is renowned for its state and private education with the property lying within catchment for the grammar schools. The Gateway School in Great Missenden is one of the leading preparatory schools in the south east.
