An impressive and elegant period 6 bed detached residence with a separate Annexe/Gym set in 1 acre of stunning grounds located in a prime location in Beaconsfield.


Wisteria House is located within a mile of the railway station in the popular commuter town of Beaconsfield, which has a wide-range of boutique shops, a good selection of restaurants and large Waitrose and Sainsbury's stores.

The town is particularly well served for communication links, with the journey to London, Marylebone taking approximately 23 minutes on the Chiltern Line. For the motorist, Junction 2 of the M40 is about 2 miles away, giving wider access to the national motorway network. Buckinghamshire is renowned for its schooling and still retains the grammar school system, including the Royal Grammar School and Wycombe High, both in High Wycombe and Beaconsfield High School in Beaconsfield. Excellent preparatory schools available in Beaconsfield itself include Davenies for boys and High March for girls and there are many others in the vicinity.

The area is well served for sporting facilities, including rugby, golf and cricket clubs and the Cliveden Spa, just south of Beaconsfield.


Wisteria House dates originally from about 1908 and was occupied for a time by the Gurney Banking Family, landowners in the Chalfonts, Beaconsfield, Penn and Gerrards Gross areas who later established the Gurney Charitable Trust which still owns the secluded woodland next to Wisteria House.

The house is a fine example of a period family home, offering beautifully presented and well-planned luxurious accommodation over three floors. Standing in the middle of its generous plot and superb gardens secluded from the road and neighbouring property, the house has been carefully extended and refurbished to an exacting standard. To the west, the plot is
bounded by an acre of woodland belonging to the Gurney Trust of which the present owners of Wisteria House have enjoyed permission to use.

The grand entrance hall with atrium above leads to the principal reception rooms and French doors which open to the rear terrace. The stunning kitchen/breakfast room has a central island and is fitted with a range of bespoke painted tulip and oak units with quartz and opal 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 two upper floors with a fabulous picture window with views over the rear gardens. Many of the bedrooms feature lovely individual detail including raised ceilings and Juliet balconies; those on the first floor also have fitted wardrobes and en suite bath/shower rooms. The master 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 two further generous bedrooms linked by a study area and there is a family bathroom.

All cloakrooms and bathrooms have been individually styled with high quality fittings and integrated mirror and storage.

The second floor offers versatile living space comprising 2 double
bedrooms and linked by a sitting area/study. It would be ideal as an au pair accommodation.

Wisteria House has been the subject of great attention to detail throughout including beautiful polished oak and mahogany doors throughout , arched windows and raised ceilings in the bedrooms and delightful solid wood doors throughout. It has all been carefully planned and beautifully created.

Gardens, Annexe and Office
Wisteria House is set behind electronically operated gates providing access to the gravel driveway with carefully planned parking for numerous vehicles. There is a separate triple garage which has the benefi t of a substantial annex on the first fl oor,
accessed by a separate external staircase which is presently used as a gym/cinema room and includes an impressive shower room/wc and kitchen.

The driveway is fl anked by a low slate drystone wall with a raised border which encloses the lawn. A gravel path weaves through the lawn and leads to a slate water feature with circular surround and colourful fl ower and shrub border. The front garden is interspersed with trees including cedrus deodar, silver birch and acers. The garden is enclosed by mature trees and laurel hedging ensuring seclusion and privacy.

Among many notable features in the garden are the beautifully constructed dry slate walls, hand built by a top dry stone waller from the Cotswolds.

To the rear of the house is a large stone 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 with a detached timber offi ce. There is also a delightful 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.

Acreage: 1 Acres
