A fine period property situated adjacent to the protected church Glebe within the towns historic conservation area. This substantial property boasts distinctive elevations most notably a conical turret and enjoys a south facing rear garden. This fine home enjoys uninterrupted views towards the magnificent parish church and spire.
The delightful Glebe stands between Dove House and St Peter and St Paul parish church. The Glebe was donated to the town by a local gentleman by name of John Wallis in memory of his daughter. The land is covenanted to prevent development of any kind and generally is in use as a pony paddock. Such a tranquil space so close to the centre of town. St Peter and St Pauls church is situated directly behind and unusually boasts an extremely tall steeple for a Buckinghamshire church (185 ft.). It is the burial place of John Newton, former local clergyman and the writer of Amazing Grace also his wife Mary. It is difficult to believe a town centre property can be so quietly located and private and have its own unrestricted off road parking.
