Picturesque, period farmhouse, in an idyllic setting.



This most attractive, former farmhouse, situated in picturesque Mentmore, is ideally located in the midst of beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, yet only a short drive from a mainline train station.

The stylish accommodation is both bright and spacious, while featuring a number of original period features and maintaining a traditional farmhouse feel.

The ground floor accommodation comprises five, sizeable reception rooms. The heart of this stunning home is the dual-aspect living room, which features an attractive open fireplace as a centre piece, together with a vaulted, beamed ceiling. The attractive, central reception hall also features a fireplace, and leads into a dining room and additional sitting room, all of which make stunning, open entertaining areas.

The glorious country-style kitchen, overlooks the pretty courtyard, and has a range of units with complementing stone work surfaces. A useful utility room lies just off the kitchen, perfect for collecting muddy boots after morning countryside walks.

Upstairs, there are four good size bedrooms, plus a recently refitted shower room. The master bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and benefits from a modern en suite shower room.

Outside, the property enjoys a southerly aspect, and the well maintained garden is a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A spacious patio provides the perfect place to unwind and enjoy those idyllic countryside views, perhaps with a chilled glass of wine or two. To the side, there is plenty of driveway parking, together with a useful storage cupboard that extends to in over 20ft.


This beautiful, quintessential English country village enjoys an idyllic hilltop setting, around 7 miles north of Tring.

Originally mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, today the dominant feature of the village is undoubtedly the fine, Victorian, Grade I listed stately home, Mentmore Towers. Commissioned by Baron Meyer Amschel de Rothschild in the mid nineteenth century, this impressive mansion was designed by George Henry Stokes and Joseph Paxton, the latter having also been responsible for designing The Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851.

On the death of Baron de Rothschild, the Estate was inherited by his daughter Hannah who, in 1878, married the fifth Earl of Rosebery, who later went on to become Prime Minister.

Mentmore village was, in the most part, rebuilt by Baron de Rothschild on completion of Mentmore Towers, to be used as accommodation for the Estate’s many workers. The central village green still enjoys breathtaking views over the Vale of Aylesbury, while the village church, dating to the 13th Century and set at the highest point in the village, features a 15th Century tower that serves as a landmark for miles around.

The nearby village of Cheddington, around two miles away, features its own mainline train station, with a regular service to London Euston in around 45 minutes.

Today, Mentmore remains highly sought after. Its picturesque setting and attractive houses are reminiscent of the Estate’s Victorian heyday which, together with its convenient location, combine to make Mentmore the perfect village idyll.
