This beautiful, Grade II listed former farmhouse enjoys a picturesque setting, together with extensive grounds of approximately 1.44 acres.
With its original structure dating from the sixteenth century, the property offers enormous charm and character, including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and an original bread oven.
Despite its age, ceiling heights are unusually generous in most rooms, with two of its double bedrooms also featuring vaulted ceilings. Beautiful sash windows create calm, light, natural interiors, which have been decorated in elegant tones.
The accommodation is both generous and versatile. Downstairs, nestled away off the wide, welcoming entrance hall, a small niche has been cleverly utilised as a study area. Three reception rooms provide excellent living space, with the drawing room boasting an inglenook fireplace.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been luxuriously fitted and includes a large central island. While such a stylish, well-planned room is perfect for today's modern style of living, gorgeous period features compliment it effortlessly, in particular the large inglenook fireplace and original bread oven. Immediately off the kitchen, there is a sizeable boot room; with a vaulted ceiling and triple aspect, there is clearly scope to convert this into an additional living room if preferred.
A beautiful bathroom completes the ground floor, and includes a handsome freestanding bath and separate shower.
Upstairs, there are a total of four double bedrooms, plus a shower room. History and character can once again be found throughout, with each room having its own distinct charm: the master bedroom, for example, bathed in natural light from its dual aspect; the second bedroom, with its vaulted ceiling and exposed beams; bedroom three, accessed through a miniature door, like something that could perhaps be found in Wonderland; and bedroom four, with its front garden view and morning sun.
Outside, the gated gravel driveway provides secure parking for numerous cars. A large double garage/workshop can be found directly behind the house, and features a very useful store room above it; at almost 27ft in length, with a little imagination, it could make the perfect home-gym, studio or office. There is also a good size wine store, and a second garage/tractor store.
The gardens are picturesque, wrapping around the house and enjoying a high degree of privacy. Mature trees create welcome shade in the summer, while thoughtfully positioned sitting areas take full advantage of the property's orientation.
This gorgeous property is conveniently located on the edge of Eaton Bray, a few minutes' walk from village amenities and only a short drive from Tring, Berkhamsted and Leighton Buzzard.
