This lovely house is a credit to the current owners, who have lived here for 35 years. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the lovely village of Quainton, within sight of the windmill, and just a short walk from village amenities.
The heart of the home is the large open plan lounge/diner/kitchen on the ground floor, with additional year-round living space provided by the large, high quality conservatory. There is also a study/work room and downstairs cloakroom, as well as porches outside both front and back doors.
Upstairs the previous 3 small bedrooms have been reconfigured to provide are two double bedrooms, the master with a large walk-in wardrobe and the second with built-in storage. The bathroom is newly refitted to a high standard, with a white suite and fully tiled walls with mosaic feature inlay.
The house has an attached single garage with lots of storage in the double-width boarded loft, ideal for use as a workshop. There is potential for a second floor extension above the garage (subject to necessary approvals) if more bedroom space is needed, or for a double height extension at the side.
Outside there are good sized low maintenance gardens to 3 sides and off-road parking for multiple vehicles.
