    About this property

    • Summerhill House is a most impressive family home, situated in an idyllic setting along a quiet and private no-through road, with the house and its beautifully landscaped gardens having far-reaching views over the Hambleden Valley and the surrounding Chiltern Hills. Set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the home belies its convenient location being easily accessed from the M40, and within striking distance of both Marlow and Henley-on-Thames.

      The house was built to an exacting standard in 2013 by the current owner, with an eye on building in a tradition manner and a timeless design, effortlessly blending that brief with all the desired modern conveniences such as limestone tiled and engineered wood floors with underfloor heating, a contemporary kitchen with electric AGA and a range of premium integrated appliances, Cat 5 cabling, RAKO lighting, a Control 4 entertainment system and an air circulation system on the ground floor. Though it has a wealth of technological benefits, the house is built in a traditional style, with country-inspired interiors complementary to the rural setting and handsome red brick elevations in keeping with the local vernacular. The neutral colour palette throughout, high ceilings and tall windows affords an abundance of natural light and gives the house a very light and airy feel.

      The accommodation is arranged over three floors and amounts to around 4400 sq ft, with a choice of reception areas to easily facilitate big family gatherings and celebrations. On the ground floor there is an entrance hallway leading to a large drawing room, playroom, study and open plan family/dining room. There are a number of service rooms, including two WCs, boot room, laundry room and pantry. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with dressing room and stylish en suite bath/shower room, three further double bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom. There are a further two double bedrooms, a shower room and a useful large storeroom on the top floor.

      The house is set within landscaped gardens of nearly half-an-acre, which have been beautifully laid out to best enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside. The gardens include formal lawned areas bordered by a range of shrub plants and flowerbeds, a kitchen garden and greenhouse, a summerhouse and store. To the front there is a detached garage with parking opposite.
