A highly attractive Chilterns country house of brick and flint and rendered elevations with a superb range of outbuildings, leisure facilities and guest accommodation all set in stunning secluded grounds.
The property is approached via a choice of long gravel driveways. The main driveway leads past the sunken hard tennis court, manège, a paddock, and park like grounds with mature trees including a Redwood, grand old Oak, Willow and Yew and arrives at the front of the house at a gravel courtyard with an attractive range of outbuildings. The house is presented in fine order and offers an abundance of character and space with scope to adapt to an individual’s requirements.
Two sweeping driveways approach the house onto the central courtyard which provides a large parking and turning area. Here there is a recently constructed oak
framed double garage, two stables and a tack room with a yard, small paddock and manège to the rear. An open car port provides parking for 3 cars and there is a further single garage/machinery store. Adjacent to this is a large brick and flint annexe building comfortably equipped with a large reception room with wood floor and stone fireplace with log burner, a modern kitchen area and on the first floor, a large studio/double bedroom, a single bedroom and a bathroom.
The mature gardens which surround the house and outbuildings are a particularly fine feature and have been beautifully landscaped over many years to provide year-round interest and a setting to admire. Front and rear paved terraces are ideal for al fresco dining and relaxation and the appealing garden design includes the well-maintained lawns, with colourful and well-stocked borders with mature shrubs and wild flowers. In addition there are mature trees, clipped hedgerows, shaped hornbeam hedge and ornamental features. The outdoor swimming pool lies behind the main house and annexe and is of an excellent size with a paved terrace, lawn area and shrub borders. To one side of the house is an attractive pond with mature trees and plants including Eucalyptus, Willows and a large expanse of lawn, this is a peaceful spot to sit and enjoy the gardens and two fenced paddocks bordered by woodland beyond. Within the grounds is a timber outbuilding which has been converted to a cottage with kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Behind this is an external store. The all-weather tennis court is discreetly sunken to one side of the grounds.
The grounds approach 8 acres in all and help to create a perfect lifestyle and leisure residence ideal for enjoying as a family and entertaining friends in a superb semi-rural secluded setting
In an elevated position approached via winding country lanes yet within easy reach of the M40 with access to Oxford, High Wycombe and London. Rushes is situated in an idyllic setting in Spriggs Alley. The house is surrounded by pretty rolling countryside, a designated area of outstanding beauty.
The Chiltern Hills stretch from the River Thames in Oxfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire and are nationally protected as some of the finest countryside in the UK.
