Character home with potential in lovely Chiltern village setting
Built circa 1900, Swainswood is a character family house with flexible accommodation and an integral annexe. Our clients have owned the house for 30 years plus, and have cherished this lovely family home. The kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of wall and floor units with an island unit and Neff appliances. Glazed doors provide views out to the garden. The adjoining utility room houses a Grant oil-fired boiler for central heating and domestic hot water. The reception/dining hall provides a wonderful entrance to Swainswood, and the principal sitting room has a lovely wood burning stove and bay window, with glazed doors to the garden and exposed ceiling beam.
The practical integral ground floor annexe comprises a bedroom, shower room, sitting room and secondary kitchen, well fitted with a range of units, Indesit hob/double oven and extractor, stainless steel sink unit and separate door to garden. This section would be ideal for a relative or other family member.
5 bedrooms on the first floor ensure excellent family accommodation, including a master bedroom with wonderful views, a range of built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with bath/shower attachment, low level WC and wash hand basin. There is an en suite guest bedroom with a westerly aspect, fitted cupboards and en suite bathroom, 3 other bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation, with a separate WC and box room in addition.
Swainswood is approached by a curving gravel driveway through electrically operated rustic wooden gates. There are well stocked and colourful herbaceous borders immediately to the front of the house through which the drive passes to a large parking and turning area and further parking by the Heritage style double garage/car port. The gardens are laid principally to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs, with a woodland boundary to the rear.
Immediately around the house are lovely raised terraces with a brick retaining wall accessed from the kitchen/breakfast room and the main sitting room, with southerly aspect. There is an additional single garage/implements store, 2 sheds, a pond, and importantly a secondary field gate access from the lane for access to the garden.
