    About this property

    • Shep Whites is a most attractive detached period home offering spacious family sized accommodation of great charm and character set within a fine plot. Built for the Duke of Bedford in 1856 the current owners believe that the property was occupied by the Estate Manager of the Duke's Estate for many years. Features of the house include ornate chimneys which were fashioned in the style of Chenies Manor and the original leaded light windows, now with custom-made secondary double glazing to most of the original windows.

      The property is approached through a small entrance vestibule and deep entrance hall with attractive Victorian pattern tiled flooring, staircase to the first floor and a cloakroom. To the front is a double aspect sitting room with fireplace and exposed timber floors. The separate dining room has parquet flooring, fireplace and double doors open to an excellent family room with views to the garden. This provides access to the kitchen/breakfast room fitted by Cotteswood Kitchens with Smeg dishwasher, Miele microwave, Liebherr fridge, double sink and Smeg range cooker. To the left of the family room is the utility room, study and bedroom with an en suite shower. NB: This area could easily be used as a separate annexe or master bedroom suite.

      To the first floor is the master bedroom with high ceilings, exposed timber floors and some fine views. Bedroom two also has a double aspect. The third bedroom has great views to the rear over fields. There is also the family bathroom with period fittings.

      Outside
      Grounds in all are about 0.42 acres and are a lovely feature of the property. Approached off a single track road to the front is a gravel driveway providing good parking space for several cars and a large double garage with useful loft space.

      The front gardens are an attractive feature set behind mature hedging and widen to the right hand side and open to form a large expanse of lawn to the rear.
