Description

This picture postcard 4 bedroom, 3 reception room Grade 2 listed period farmhouse has the potential to become the most stunning family home in the area. It is priced to reflect the fact that it could benefit from significant updating and improvement. This property just oozes character!!!!

This glorious property purportedly dates back to the 1400's in part and the newer section was added in the 1700's. It benefits from all the rooms being of a substantial size with relatively high ceilings for a property of this age. Originally one of the farmhouses on the Dashwood Estate it is now approached via a quiet lane, is surrounded by a cottage style garden and comes complete with a white picket fence. There are no words that can do this property justice, it has to be seen to be believed. Absolutely magnificent!!

We have mentioned the size and the character of this home, here is more of an insight into what you can expect. There is a huge Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, an Aga and walk-in pantry in the kitchen. Spacious, full ceiling height cellar, currently used as a utility room and storage area. The Dining room also has a fireplace. Huge hallway and landing, nooks and crannies galore, if you don't like quirky features then sadly this one is not for you!!

The historic village of West Wycombe very close by with the renowned Hell Fire Caves, pubs, butchers, Post Office and a selection of small specialist shops, including the amazing Olde Sweet Shop. You also have John Lewis, Waitrose, Asda Superstore, the new Sports Centre as well as a fabulous farm shop. For the larger shopping experience you have High Wycombe Town Centre with the theatre, cinema, bowling alley, a vast selection of restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets along with the Eden Shopping Centre with House of Fraser and all of the high street brands.

If you are looking to travel further afield you are within 10 minutes drive of junction 4 of the M40 and about 25 minutes from junction 8/9 of the M4. Marlow is about 15 minutes drive if you fancy a picnic by the River Thames or sampling the many pubs and restaurants or shopping in the boutiques. If you commute into London by train, then High Wycombe station offers a very good service operated by Chiltern Railways in to London Marylebone. This house is also on a bus route to High Wycombe, Cressex and Booker.
