The ground floor accommodation comprises a generous front aspect sitting room with feature inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, a well-proportioned snug with stairs to the first floor and a dual aspect kitchen with a walk-in larder, neighbouring fitted utility room with cloakroom and a boot room with garden access. The kitchen provides a range of contemporary wall and floor units with granite worktops, a range cooker, modern integrated appliances and space for a good-sized table.
The first floor rooms offer stunning countryside views and comprise a generous front aspect master bedroom, two further well-proportioned bedrooms and a contemporary fully-tiled family bathroom.
The property is approached through a five-bar gate over a gravelled driveway offering private parking and giving access to the detached double garage and to a picket fence with gate leading to a paved pedestrian path to the front door. The path is flanked on each side by well-maintained areas of level lawn interspersed with mature flowerbeds, fruit trees and shrubs with a vegetable garden and a generous gravelled terrace to the side aspect. The whole is screened by mature hedging and enjoys far-reaching views over neighbouring fields and surrounding countryside, including the Chiltern Hills.
