Characterful family home in a beautiful semi-rural location on the edge of Burnham Beeches.
Occupying a beautiful semi-rural setting on the edge of Burnham Beeches, this delightful home was built in the 1950s and has been thoughtfully updated and extended to offer superb family accommodation of character, with exposed beams and brickwork. The property incorporates a self-contained annexe and enjoys a wonderful, landscaped garden with a heated swimming pool and a garden studio/office.
An entrance porch opens into a welcoming and spacious reception hall/snug with a brick fireplace as a feature. This space could easily be used as a further reception room and leads through to the hub of the house, a superb part vaulted kitchen/dining/family room, with porcelain tiled flooring extending to the outside terrace. Wide glazed sliding doors open on to the terrace, affording an ideal inside/outside entertaining space with two ceiling lanterns flooding the room with natural light. The kitchen itself is well appointed with an excellent range of storage units complemented by Quartz worktops. Appliances include an Aga, two ring gas hob, oven and wine cooler, with space for an American style fridge freezer, while a large central island incorporates breakfast bar seating. There is ample room for a table and seating area, perfect for family life. The adjacent sitting room enjoys a brick fireplace with a woodburner.
An inner hallway, with a guest cloakroom, leads to the principal bedroom with an excellent range of built-in wardrobes and an en suite bath/shower room, with space for a washer/dryer. French doors give a lovely garden aspect and lead out to the terrace. From here is door access to the annexe and also stairs to the first floor landing where there are two further characterful bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom and a study/nursery.
The annexe comprises a fully fitted kitchen, sitting room with doors on to a gravelled patio outside and a bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. It is self-contained with its own front door but could also be incorporated into the main house if preferred.
The property is approached through electric gates on to a generous driveway with ample parking for several cars. In addition is an oak framed double garage with a mezzanine level for storage. The rear garden is a delight, with beautifully planted beds and borders and a large area of lawn. The terrace adjoins the full width of the house edged with attractive raised sleeper beds. Towards the end of the garden a gated picket fence leads to the swimming pool, patio, outbuilding/store and a newly constructed summer house/office. Of particular note is a fine magnolia and fruit trees including apple, pear and cherry. The swimming pool has been refurbished and is heated via the air source heat pump. The garden is beautifully private, enclosed with high hedging and mature trees giving seclusion.
