A handsome and spacious family home in sought after Bovingdon Green, ideal for access to Marlow and yet in a delightfully semi-rural setting.
In a leafy setting near to the village hall, Bovingdon Cottage is a marvellous detached home dating back to the early 1900s. Commendably presented throughout and benefiting from underfloor heating in the kitchen, today it offers a stunning example of modern life in a period property. Behind the beautiful architecture of a quintessential double fronted facade, an outstanding central hall with a marvellous fireplace and log burner instantly sets the tone with its pared-back aesthetics and subtle palette. French doors to the rear lead directly out into the garden, while the accommodation unfolds around you. Two superb double aspect sitting rooms each have focal point fireplaces of their own and create versatile places in which to relax and spend time together. Supremely well-appointed, the exceptional kitchen/dining room is equally suited for family meals or entertaining, in addition to the cosy snug with log burner. The high sheen of its tiled floor subtly enhances the natural light from a wall of bi-fold doors that make it easy to step outside and enjoy al fresco dining. Beneath high skylights, the superior kitchen is fitted with elegant Shaker cabinetry topped with granite countertops and housing a first class array of appliances. A matching central island with bar stool seating delineates the space, and the tastefully chosen heritage hues of a considered seating area adds a refined pop of colour. The considerable dimensions open into an adjoining boot room and utility room. An equally impressive office is a haven when working from home, and a hugely stylish cloakroom completes the ground floor.
The idyllic outlooks and cohesive design themes are echoed upstairs where five fantastic bedrooms all benefit from fitted storage and supply an ideal measure of flexible family accommodation. With a Juliet balcony, a graceful principal bedroom is filled with light and has a sumptuous en suite bathroom with a contemporary bathtub and rainfall shower. A second bedroom has an en suite shower room, and together the additional three bedrooms share a deluxe family bathroom in a timeless metro tile setting.
At the front of the property high evergreen hedging borders a substantial gravel frontage that together with the detached garaging provides off-road parking for several vehicles. A mature wisteria clambers up and across the feature brickwork and flint of the cottage, framing a canopied doorway to proffer an enchanting introduction. The rusticated quoins and statuesque chimney stacks retain an abundance of charm and character.
Wrapping around from the sides to the rear, the large gardens have plentiful space for children to play on established lawns bordered by further hedgerows and fencing. Landscaped terracing and a patio add tranquil spots for al fresco entertaining or to simply recline and unwind in the sunshine with a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
