Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Maple Tree House is an elegant bay fronted detached Victorian residence thought to be dating back to the late 1800’s offering very comfortable family accommodation and set in glorious grounds of approximately 1/3 acre which adjoin open fields with far reaching views over the English countryside. The house is situated in the picturesque village of Great Shefford which has a community including a Shop, Public House, Primary School, Village Hall as well as access to the M4 and mainline railway network.


The property has been very well maintained and improved by its current owner to a very high standard including double glazed handmade windows in keeping with the period of the property. Many of the original features remain including exposed wooden flooring throughout the majority of the downstairs, an open fire in the Reception and wood burning stove in the Living room. The property has been extended in the past to provide excellent family accommodation comprising:- Large Porch, Reception hallway, Living room, Reception room with patio doors opening onto the terrace and large Kitchen/Diner with Aga and fantastic views across rolling countryside. On the first floor there is a galleried landing, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom and access to a boarded loft.

There is enormous potential to extend and personalise the house to either side and rear of the property as well as converting the attic space subject to the necessary planning consents.

The property is accessed by either the double wooden decorative gates at the foot of the paved driveway which leads onto a gravel area affording off road parking for several vehicles or via the iron pedestrian gate and stone pathway. There is a large front lawn with shrub and flower borders behind a low red brick wall. To one side of the house and driveway is a garage with power with lighting and gated side access to the rear of the property.
The totally enclosed rear garden is beautifully traditional and mature with a large paved patio which extends to the rear and side where one can enjoy sun bathed private alfresco dining. There is a handmade wooden pergola with climbing grape vines and a herb and vegetable garden close to the kitchen. Nestled in the corner is a home office with lighting, power, telephone and data outlets.

Towards the end of the garden is a gated area with a picket fence surround for use as a further vegetable garden or chicken run and a decorative garden tool shed close at hand.
The garden adjoins open fields with amazing views across rolling countryside and offers a very high degree of seclusion.
