Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Wisteria House pre-dates the First World War and was occupied for a time by Norman William Gurvey, of the Gurney family, landowners in the Chalfont's, Beaconsfield, Penn and Gerrards Cross areas. The family later established the Gurney Trust, which owns an acre of private woodland adjacent to Wisteria House.

The house is a fine example of a period family home, offering beautifully presented and well-planned luxurious accommodation over 3 floors. Sitting in the middle of a generous, mature plot adjacent to woodland, the house has been carefully extended and refurbished to an exacting standard.

The grand entrance hall with atrium above leads to the principal reception rooms and French doors which open to the rear terrace. The wonderful kitchen/breakfast room has a central island and is fitted with a range of bespoke painted tulip and Oak units with quartz and oak work surfaces, with a range of built-in appliances. The kitchen adjoins the library which has a feature stone fireplace and leads to the orangery
with dual aspect French doors leading to the terrace.

The drawing room and family rooms are accessed from the reception hall and both offer French doors to the delightful front gardens.

A central staircase leads to the 2 upper floors with a fabulous picture window with views over the rear gardens.

Many of the bedrooms feature individual detail including raised ceilings and Juliet balconies; those on the first floor also have fitted wardrobes and en suite bath/shower rooms. The principal bedroom has a Juliet balcony and is dual aspect, with a large dressing room and en suite bathroom.

The second floor offers a versatile accommodation and currently comprises 2 bedrooms, linked by a study area and there is a family bathroom.

Wisteria House is set behind electronically operated gates providing access to the gravel driveway with parking for numerous vehicles and a triple garage, which has the benefit of an excellent and spacious gym and annexe over.

The driveway is flanked by a low slate dry stone wall with a raised border which enclosed the lawn. A gravel path weaves through the lawn and leads to a slate water feature with circular surround and colourful flower and shrub border. The front garden is interspersed with trees including Cedrus Deodara, Silver Birch and Acers. The garden is enclosed by mature tees and Laurel hedging, ensuring seclusion and privacy.

To the rear of the house is a large Sandstone terrace with individual areas, including a slate paved dining area with inset gravel surround. To the side of the main lawn is a winding gravel path which leads to the rear of the garden and a further paved seating area. There is a spacious and secluded home office with a panoramic view of the garden. There is also a delightful thatched summer house.

The superbly maintained gardens have been designed with great care to ensure year-round colour and interest, with evergreen planting and topiary throughout. There are an abundance of beds and borders with herbaceous plants, shrubs, annuals, cottage and meadow flowers.
