Stunning family home with country views
Yew Tree House is a detached property situated on a quiet bridlepath just off a pretty single-track road with far reaching views to the rear and woodland to the front. The hamlet is less than a mile from the charming village of Nettlebed with its many amenities and is set at the heart of the rolling Chiltern Hills with excellent access to country walking and riding trails. The house enjoys a slightly elevated setting, with most of the rooms having views over the fields to the rear and the remaining rooms to a pretty wooded area to the front.
The house has been thoughtfully updated and extended by the vendor to create a stunning residence that is traditionally and elegantly appointed throughout while benefitting from all the modern conveniences; underfloor heating, high specification bathrooms and a fabulous country kitchen. Recent updates include an extension to create an additional bedroom and bathroom, and a new building housing the garage and a self-contained annex with a bedroom, shower room and reception room. This useful space would make ideal guest accommodation, or as a separate residence for older children or grandparents, or a home office.
The property is beautifully presented throughout. Entrance to the house is via an inviting hall, beyond which there is a useful boot room a must for dog owners and keen walkers. Leading from the hall is a study with a wood burning stove, making it a cosy place to curl up on a winter evening. The study leads to an elegant 26ft sitting room with a log fire and French doors opening to the garden. From both the study and the sitting room doors lead to a modern kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen also opens to a separate light filled family room with double aspect and French doors to the terrace and garden.
The four double bedrooms are on the first floor with the two rear-facing bedrooms having Juliet balconies to maximise the fabulous views. The principal bedroom has a dressing room and luxurious en suite bathroom with bath, shower and twin basins. There is also an additional bathroom on the first floor and a separate shower room.
At the front of the property a picket fence provides a border to the bridle path and a five bar gate leads to the gravel driveway. The detached double garage has been converted to allow space for one car and an annex for guest accommodation.
The gardens are simply landscaped, laid mostly to lawn, and overlook the fields to the rear of the property. There are several mature trees as well as some recently planted fruit trees. The informal flower border is stocked with cottage garden plants and shrubs. The large paved terrace, in a slightly elevated position, captures the far-reaching views, and to the side of the house it leads down into a gravel garden, where a pergola with climbing roses, wisteria and clematis provide shade for the perfect spot for alfresco dining.
