This beautiful Georgian House sits high on the Chiltern Hills at around 600ft above sea level and this altitude combined with some very large skys ensures the property is often bathed in amazing light.
The front of the property (East Facing) has a large lawn framed by mature and rare trees.
The gravel entrance drive, manicured hedges and roundabout (with a hidden hot tub create) create a more formal environment while the wisteria and vines soften the location to give it more of a country home feel.
At the rear of the property there is a 10m Hazel wood arched walkway that leads to the rear garden (west facing).
Here there is an apple tree orchard, glass green house, honey bees, ducks and chickens. This part of the property is more natural and rustic in appearance with a very large self-contained safari tent (living space, kitchenette, bedroom and shower) which backs onto the horse fields at the rear.
The sky here is very open creating amazing light well after the sun has set.
The interior design of the manor is much more contemporary with mid-century furniture, antiques and modern art.
There’s an amazing double ceiling height entrance hall with a 1m wide Italian Morano chandelier.
A full-size magnolia and wood chip Rose mural on backstairs wall joins the downstairs to the upstairs galleried area. Adjoining the large hallway is an elegant bay-windowed sitting room with a large fireplace.
A separate ‘blue’ room leads from the hall past a floor to ceiling gilt-framed mirror. This room also has a large fireplace with large bay windows and full-size Yamaha piano. The kitchen and utility/pantry is at the rear of the house with a conservatory-style area leading to the back garden. The kitchen has a large island with brass pendant lights hanging from the ceiling. The floor is light grey Mortex and all woodwork a dark green with brushed brass fittings.
Landing and stairs are carpeted in crucial trading wool knotted sisal and a large landing overlooking the front hallway from an ornate wrought iron gallery. Another great space for a shoot.
There are 4 bedrooms and small office space upstairs. A family bathroom and 2 en suite shower rooms. The main bedroom has been most recently updated with a full-size bath placed in between 2 large front-facing windows. It also has a fireplace, a large wooden ceiling fan and a beautiful burnt orange velvet peacock shaped headboard.
