The idyllic location of this exquisite cottage really does provide the best of both worlds; a rare opportunity to live the 'countryside dream', while being only a short drive from the buzz of beautiful market towns when you want them.
At less than a mile from Long Marston village, village amenities are all close at hand while, for commuters, nearby Cheddington offers its own train station and a regular direct service to London Euston in little more than 40 minutes.
The photographs of this immaculate house speak for themselves. Internally, the property has been elegantly refurbished and sympathetically extended by the present owners, who clearly have the most sublime taste and style. Muted Farrow & Ball tones have been used throughout, with sophisticated interiors immersed in natural light.
Downstairs, there are three principal reception rooms; a beautiful, dual aspect sitting room, a good size dining room, and a cosy family room, complete with wood burning stove. The beautiful period charm continues throughout.
However, perhaps unexpectedly for a country cottage, and a contemporary highlight in contrast to the period chic, the property features an impressive kitchen/breakfast room, luxuriously fitted and with granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, a central island, and an additional seating area; with French doors opening out to the rear terrace, it really is the perfect space for today's style of living.
A good size utility room is located just off the kitchen, together with a cloakroom.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and features its own en suite shower room. The guest bedroom, at the opposite end of the landing, also boasts an en suite shower room, while the remaining two bedrooms are served by a sumptuous family bathroom, itself featuring a freestanding roll top bath and a separate shower.
Outside is every bit as beautiful as inside. The extensive gardens have been lovingly landscaped to create a picturesque abundance of colour. Numerous areas have been cleverly created, each with their own individual style and charm; the part-walled vegetable garden, for example, the children’s play area, the chicken run, and orchard. The more formal garden, with its lavender-lined paths and beautifully-maintained lawns, is located immediately to the rear of the house and features brick paved seating areas and a pond.
Beyond the gardens, the property has plenty of additional space, with three paddocks and a riding menage offering a wonderful opportunity either for those who have always dreamed of owning their own horse, or simply for the dogs and children to run wild and enjoy. Three stables, a tractor store and hay barn have the obvious appeal, but could alternatively be converted for use as a home-gym, office or studio, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents. Finally, there is a summer house to provide a little welcome shade on the hottest of days, or which again has a number of potential uses - most recently it has been used as a home-office, complete with an internet connection.
To the front, a gated gravel driveway provides plenty of car parking, large enough to accommodate a horse box.
In all, the plot extends to approximately 3.6 acres.
