Period home perfection.
This enchanting, Grade II listed cottage enjoys a coveted position, in a Conservation Area, right in the heart of this bucolic Buckinghamshire village.
Dating back to the late 17th Century, Old Beams is indeed a gorgeous home. Featuring beautiful living spaces, two double bedrooms and an abundance of fine period features, this exquisite property has been sympathetically renovated over recent years to create a stunning home fit for the 21st Century. And, with beautiful views across Ivinghoe Lawn, a better position is hard to find.
From the moment you enter this exceptional house, there are wonderful period features to captivate - an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, leaded-light windows, exposed beams – each and every room oozes charm, each with its own distinctive character.
Particularly spacious for a two bedroom property, this generous house extends to an impressive 1,200 sq ft – to put that in context, it is larger than most modern three bedroom semis.
On the ground floor, and to the front of the property, there are two large reception rooms, including the sitting room with its working fireplace. At the rear, a well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom can be found, along with a versatile garden room.
Up to the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, with the main bedroom featuring both a walk-in wardrobe tucked behind the chimney breast. A large family bathroom completes the upstairs, which has plenty of space to accommodate a freestanding bath and a separate walk-in shower.
Outside, to the rear of the property, there is a pretty lawned garden, with raised borders and mature shrubs, plus a patio area which is perfect for entertaining.
This beautiful property enjoys an ideal village location, only 3.5 miles from Tring and situated within the Aylesbury grammar schools catchment area.
This sought after Buckinghamshire village, close to the borders of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, boasts some beautiful examples of Tudor architecture, particularly around the village green. The village lies on the edge of some 5,000 acres of National Trust land, where Pitstone Windmill and Ivinghoe Beacon can be found.
Nearby communication links are excellent, including the A41 at Tring, which provides a dual carriageway link direct to the M25 (J20). Tring also has its own mainline train station, with regular and direct service to London Euston in approx. 35 mins.
Village facilities include a recreation ground, tea shop, church, public house, plus the renowned King`s Head fine dining restaurant. Nearby towns offer a more comprehensive range of facilities, from the boutiques and coffee shops in picturesque Tring and Berkhamsted, to the shopping centres and department stores of Hemel Hempstead and Aylesbury, both of which also boast multiplex cinemas and extensive leisure facilities.
Schooling is excellent. The local primary school, Brookmead, caters for children aged 4 to 11, and the village falls within the Grammar Schools catchment area in Aylesbury.
