About this property

    Clifton House is an impressive country house, built in 1991, with brick elevations under a clay tile roof. It has spacious and flexible light filled accommodation arranged over three floors. It has been finished to an exacting standard and is beautifully presented throughout. To the ground floor the main reception rooms open from the reception hall with double doors opening to the double aspect drawing room which has an open fireplace with log burning stove and doors opening to the garden terrace. This room leads to the lovely dining room with doors to the garden and kitchen. From the drawing room steps rise to the charming sitting room with large windows overlooking the front and side gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of painted wall and floor units and is well equipped with built-in appliances. An elegant staircase rises from the hallway to the first floor accommodation. There are four large bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, and a good sized study which could provide a sixth bedroom if required. The elegant principal bedroom suite occupies the entire second floor and takes full advantage of this large, light and airy space, having a dressing area, sitting area and en-suite shower room with a separate sauna.

    Clifton Villa is a detached dwelling in the grounds of Clifton House providing extremely attractive secondary accommodation. The reception space is an open plan sitting and dining area, open to the kitchen with doors to a garden terrace and stairs up to a mezzanine study area. There are three good sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, a family shower room and separate WC. There are two store rooms attached to Clifton Villa but accessed externally.

    Clifton House & Clifton Villa are accessed from the drive via electronically controlled gates opening to a central turning circle and generous parking area for several cars. The main house has a hard tennis court to one side and is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens which are laid mainly to lawn interspersed with beds planted with a variety of mature shrubs and perennial plants. There is a detached garden room and terraces run along the side and rear of the house providing the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful private setting overlooking the garden and surrounding woodland. Clifton Villa, with its own area of garden, is located opposite Clifton House to the side of the driveway where there is also a double garage with workshop to the rear. Access to the Chiltern Way footpaths is directly outside the gate, and the charming local pub the Dew Drop is a 10 minute walk through the forest.
