An immaculate country home in stunning private parkland grounds

Built of a classic brick and tiled construction believed to date back in parts to the 1680's yet unlisted.

Extended in the 1850's and again by the current owners in 2006/7, the house is now a stunning and substantial country home offering very private, comfortable living with no adjacent neighbours.

The most recent additions to the property added the spacious master bedroom suite with a leisure wing below including a full size snooker room, bar and sitting room.

The extensive accommodation is laid out over two floors, including an impressive panelled entrance hall with white marble and black granite tiled floor with an elegant cantilevered staircase. The main drawing room is panelled with solid oak flooring and a dark wood and green marble fireplace and overlooks the rear terrace and gardens.

From the drawing room you pass through an ornate plaster archway into the breakfast room, with a green and white marble floor and lovely views across the main lawn.

The cherry wood kitchen is located centrally within the house and is luxuriously fitted with a full range of integrated appliances including dishwasher, two Smeg ovens, two fridges, two freezers, Neff coffee machine, a pair of Neff domino halogen hobs, a Neff indoor barbeque and Franke twin sink units. The flooring is a cream marble and the work surfaces are black assoluto granite.

There is a separate utility room with units that match the kitchen, with marble flooring and black granite work surface, and integrated washing machine, tumble dryer and another sink.

The dining room is in the oldest part of the house and has an impressive beamed ceiling yet retains good head height. Decorated in a medieval dark red with a stone fireplace this room has a pleasing historical ambience due to its age and is ideally suited for large scale entertaining, comfortably seating 14.

The dining room leads to the billiard room which is a large panelled room with a bar area and a seating area for those not playing snooker. The room overlooks the pool terrace to the West and the gardens to the South and is a great entertaining space.

Upstairs is an attractive galleried landing overlooking the hallway and during the festive season this double height space houses a large Christmas tree of 16 feet high.

Off of the panelled landing are 6 bedrooms (three suites all with spa baths) and a further family bathroom and an airing cupboard. The master bedroom suite includes a double spa bath and dressing room.

The first floor is divided into two levels the upper level containing one bedroom and the family bathroom. Three steps lead to the main landing from which the two guest bedroom suites, master bedroom suite and two further bedrooms are accessed. All the southerly facing bedrooms enjoy attractive outlooks over the gardens and grounds whilst the bedrooms facing the front of the property look out across open fields.

EPC Rating: E

Outside

A particularly fine feature of this property are the grounds. The property is approached from Hyde Lane, a quiet single-track lane, through a pair of electric gates complete with intercom and can be controlled by either the house phone or a mobile phone.

A gravel driveway leads to the main house and double garage block, with electric doors and home office above.

The formal gardens are to the rear and south of the property where the eye is drawn to a formal stone pond with fountain and vases and from this to a superb copper beech tree which sits majestically in the centre of the grounds creating an impressive focal point.

There is a further formal parterre garden to the western side of the grounds and the furthest part of the garden includes a stable block with two stables and a tack room and a small adjacent paddock.

A large flower bed is situated at the end of the main lawn and beyond this sits the paddock hidden from view by a large row of mature conifers.

At the western end of the house is a private heated freshwater swimming pool, with adjacent outbuilding housing a hot-tub, infra-red sauna, shower and wc/changing room.

The rear of the property faces due south over wonderful mature park-like grounds with numerous specimen tress such as Oak, Copper Beech and Scots Pine.

There is also a formal pond area and a formal garden made up of gravel pathways with a central raised flower bed with a large central stone urn. The entire plot is very private with no immediate neighbours.

Situation

Hyde End Hall is situated in the desirable hamlet of Hyde End high up in the Chiltern Hills, close to the villages of Hyde Heath and Great Missenden, within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Despite its rural setting the nearby towns of Amersham and Beaconsfield are easily accessible, providing an excellent range of shopping, schools, recreational and transport facilities.

The closest village of Great Missenden is highly regarded with its local amenities as well as a mainline station service to London Marylebone taking just 36 minutes.

Communications from the property are excellent with central London and Heathrow Airport both within easy driving distance, via the M40/A40, M25 and A41.

In addition to the mainline railway stations from Great Missenden and Amersham there are also Metropolitan Line underground stations at Amersham and Chesham, giving direct access to London and The City.

Sporting and recreational facilities in the area are wide-ranging and include golf at Ellesborough, Chartridge, Ashridge, Beaconsfield and Moor Park. Other activities include polo at West Wycombe and Windsor Great Park and horseracing at Ascot and Windsor.

The Chilterns also provide many delightful rides and walks through the network of footpaths and bridleways.

There is a wide choice of schooling for children of all ages including Great Missenden C of E Primary School, Hyde Heath infant School, Dr Challoner's Grammar School, Chesham High Schools, Wycombe Abbey for girls, Merchant Taylors and Berkhamsted for boys. Prep schools include The Beacon for boys and Heatherton House for girls, both located in Amersham.
