    About this property

    • This 1930s character home was originally built as the local headmistress' house and has a prime setting within this desirable Chilterns village: it is close to shops, restaurants and services, yet has a distinctly rural feel with sweeping views over the surrounding countryside to the rear, and a wonderfully large and mature garden. The detached home has been a much-loved family residence for many years, with several improvements taking place: two loft conversions, three bathrooms have been added, and outside a new carport, garage and summerhouse. There's also a new kitchen, added in 2022, with heat-proof Dekton work surfaces. The interiors, however, retain a huge amount of their original charm including decorative brick fireplaces and picture rails. The property also benefits from UPVC wood effect double glazing with stained-glass detail. The house has a wealth of untapped potential and there's huge scope to modernise or develop further – subject to obtaining the necessary permissions.

      The accommodation is ideal for families, with masses of space available for family occasions. The three reception rooms are situated at the back of the house, all overlooking the garden and separate to the open plan kitchen and dining room, so there's space to keep formal and informal spaces separate. There's also a study, a utility room, a ground floor shower room and a storage space, and three separate entrances to the ground floor. The bedrooms are numerous: a principal suite with dressing room/study and en suite bath/shower room; four further bedrooms; and three further bath/shower rooms, arranged across the first and second floors.

      Withurst is tucked away behind mature hedges and a gated entrance, with open green spaces to the front and rear. There's excellent parking on a large gravel driveway and within a triple car port, and there's a separate garage too. The gardens are attractively landscaped and feature many varieties of well-established trees and shrubs, giving the outside space feel very secluded, though still enjoying lovely views over the countryside to the rear. A vast terrace spans the back of the house with ample space for entertaining, overlooking a large lawn and a timber summerhouse.
