This deceptively large one-bedroom apartment is part of a former manor house dating back to the 16th century with 18th century Georgian additions. The building retains a wealth of period features including high ceilings, sash windows, ornate cornicing as well as a large cellar allowing ample storage for residents.
The apartment itself is located towards the rear of the building on the ground floor and access is gained via a tiled entrance and inner hallway leading to the stunning 28 ft x 19 ft sitting/dining room which is an absolute joy to behold and a reminder of how grand and stately the manor was in times gone by. Period features include parquet flooring, a huge bay window with shutters and box seating at the far end and a feature fireplace with an ornate carved wooden mantel at the other. There are two floor to ceiling sash windows to one side of the room with a French door between them to the terrace which descends to the gardens. The bedroom also has a feature fireplace, a tall sash window and a door to the terrace. Accommodation is completed with the shower room, kitchen (with larder) and utility room.
As well as the allocated garage accessed via the main driveway, there is visitor parking to the other side of the building. A private terrace (accessed from the sitting room and bedroom) adjoins the apartment and steps descend from here to the magical private garden beneath the sitting room bay window. Generous communal gardens lie beyond; largely laid to lawn and with a range of well-established plantings providing year-round interest. Additionally, there is a garden shed for this apartment.
Located fewer than 200 yards from the historic High Street, this apartment is well placed to take advantage of all that the village has to offer. There is a supermarket, Post Office and a variety of independent specialist shops as well as cultural attractions including The Blue Door Cinema and The Roald Dahl Museum.
The village also offers a variety of pubs and restaurants including a Thai, Indian and the newly-opened Fanfan pizzeria. There is plenty of scope for walking and cycling in The Chilterns; the area is laced with public footpaths and bridleways. Trains run to London Marylebone from Great Missenden in approximately 40 minutes (fast train).
125 year lease from 1.4.1997. Service charge: £334 per month (2021). The property is leasehold and the freehold is owned by all the residents in the building. White goods, light fittings and curtains included in the sale.
