Wheatsheaf farmhouse A grade II listed, early 17th century building of timber framed construction with a thatched roof and tiled single storey extensions. A William & Mary coin dated 1694 discovered under a door frame in the kitchen during restoration work was probably placed there by a builder. Records show that from 1777 this building was a public house known as the Wheatsheaf Inn. Church Wardens’ accounts record that ‘the Vestry adjourned to the Wheatsheaf’ to dispense relief to the poor, with church representatives gathering in the snug while the poor waited in the Tap Room. Aylesbury Brewery Company bought the Wheatsheaf in 1926 but closed it in 1955, despite a petition signed by over 200 people. The property has been owned by our clients’ family since 1957.

Brick barn 30’4 x 15’6 Grade II listed, with a plain tiled roof, chimney, two entrances, various windows and hayloft, with potential for conversion. Following a structural engineer’s report on this barn, planning consent was granted (18/02632/ALB, 3 October 2018) to allow installation of four metal ties near the roofline to stabilise the structure while its long-term future is decided. The work has been carried out, and the four temporary ties are in place. Bricks on the side of the barn are incised with intials, and one is dated 1771. During the time when the Wheatsheaf was an alehouse, it was used as a skittle alley and meeting room. After the second world war teas were served there when the village cricket team played in the field behind. Latterly it has been used as a workshop and storeplace.
Attached timber sheds 10’1 x 5’7 and a smaller one to the rear.
Timber barn 25’6 x 13’6 In a dilapidated condition.
Gardens and spinney The farmhouse and barns are surrounded by spacious gardens with many established fruit trees and a small spinney to the rear, bounding the paddock.
Small paddock with a pond If lot 2 (the field) is sold separately, the only right of way across lot 1 will be the public footpath. There will be no vehicular access. A restrictive covenant will be imposed on the paddock in respect of any future development.


Lot 2 – The Field

If the property be sold as two separate lots, there will be no vehicular access linking the field to the High Street entrance. A restrictive covenant will be imposed on the field in respect of any future development.
