Kings Ash Barn, nestled away high up in the Chilterns and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a truly beautiful home, created by the skilful conversion of five adjoining farmbuildings, some of which date to the eighteenth century.
A gorgeous mix of stylish, capacious interiors and exceptional landscaped gardens, there is no doubt that inside and outside are both equally breathtaking.
The property has two large reception rooms: the drawing room, with its beautiful wood burning stove, plus the impressive family/dining hall with its high vaulted ceiling. For those with an interest in the history, the drawing room reputedly features timber taken from HMS Impregnable, the Navy's last wooden warship, before the rest was used for the mock Tudor extension to the Liberty store in London in 1921.
The bespoke Martin Moore fitted kitchen again has a wonderful vaulted ceiling and features a large central island and an Aga. A utility room can be found just off the kitchen.
There are total of four double bedrooms and three well-appointed bathroom/shower rooms. However, the versatile layout of this handsome home lends itself equally well to utilising one of those bedrooms as a home-office, gym or studio if preferred.
Outside, there are no less than three private and beautiful gardens, each one designed to attract birds, bees and butterflies and as a place for relaxation, with plenty of room for entertainment as well.
The garden, designed by a Chelsea Award winning garden designer, was planted in 2017 and is now an abundant and mature wildlife haven.
The principal garden is laid to lawn and enjoys a high degree of privacy. There is a beautiful wildlife pond, while the sizeable terrace is perfect for entertainment, and a wisteria-covered pergola offers a little welcome shade for the sunniest days.
The second, courtyard garden, is accessed from the kitchen - an ideal space for relaxing with a coffee in the morning sun. A protected and private kitchen garden, it is planted with herbs and plants to attract pollinators, and includes lavender, rosemary, fennel, verbena, wisteria and herbs.
The third, the orchard garden, is a wilder space, planted with apply trees, native hedges, magnolia, and shrubs for shade; a haven for the local bird life.
The property has plenty of parking, with space for four cars, plus there is a double garage. For those wishing to consider extending, the garage space has excellent scope for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
In all, the property enjoys a plot of approximately a third of an acre.
Kings Ash is a picturesque hamlet in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
A short walk from the Ridgeway, miles of stunning countryside can be found on your doorstep, while nearby Wendover, Great Missenden and Tring are all within a short drive.
