A substantial brick and flint country house offering a generous and adaptable layout over three levels with about 15 acres of garden and paddock nestling in glorious Chiltern countryside.
Woodside is a magnificent detached country house built by its current owners around 2004 with a meticulous attention to design and craftsmanship with a desire to create a substantial family home that has the charm and character of a much older looking property combined with all the innovation and technology for a modern day family lifestyle, resulting in a stunning achievement.
There is a wonderful first impression as you approach along an unmade lane which winds its way to the entrance, with a brick paved driveway and first sight of the attractive brick and flint elevations with a York stone path and steps with a water feature rising to the solid oak front door.
The spacious layout with well-proportioned rooms is arranged over three levels and has been designed for both family living and entertaining. The impressive reception hall with french doors on to the terrace features a grand central staircase which rises to the four sided first floor galleried landing. A further staircase leads to the lower ground floor. Double doors lead to the large more formal drawing room with a feature fireplace with double doors connecting to the games and entertaining room with plenty of space for a snooker table. There is a study with bespoke oak fitted furniture, and a separate dining room with doors that connect to the family sized kitchen/breakfast room fitted with an extensive range of custom made units incorporating built in appliances with granite worktops and breakfast bar island. Doors open on to an area of decking for relaxation. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a discreet guest bedroom with an en suite shower room.
The lower ground floor with windows for natural light comprises a large cinema room/games room with doors on to a terrace as well as a further bedroom, shower room, utility room and plant room. These rooms could form an annexe for a relative or nanny for example.
There are four first floor double bedrooms with far reaching views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. All have well appointed contemporary en suite bath and shower rooms with the principal bedroom also having a fitted dressing room.
An undoubted feature of Woodside is its fabulous setting positioned into the hillside with magnificent views across the surrounding countryside. The formal gardens have been beautifully landscaped to provide areas of idyllic terrace for relaxation and al fresco entertaining. Well established with numerous beds and specimen trees and irrigation system, the gentle sloping lawns lead down to the well maintained hard tennis court. There is plenty of parking space with a large carport providing under cover space together with an attached shed and separate tractor/garden store. Beyond the gardens on the ridge there is a 13 acre field.
