A beautiful four bedroom detached Georgian home enjoying a picturesque setting at the foot of The Chiltern Escarpment.
Originally dating back to circa 1812, Dove Cottage is a stunning home of character enjoying a picturesque rural setting at the end of a single track lane, whilst just a ten minute drive to Princes Risborough station for access into London Marylebone (fast train in just 36 minutes).
This delightful property has been in the ownership of the current family since the 1960’s and has been lovingly maintained over this period, although the property would now benefit from a degree of updating including the kitchen and bathrooms. On first entering the property the entrance hall is laid with parquet flooring and the porch has the original front door, access is gained into both the sitting room and family room. Of particular note is the elegant sitting room, extended in 1979 to provide an additional study and flooded with natural light. The open, working fireplace has an Adam style surround and a full height glazed door provides a wonderful outlook of the garden. Further accommodation to the ground floor includes a family room with working fireplace, a kitchen/breakfast room, and a single storey utility room with cloakroom, incorporating a shower.
To the first floor, a large landing provides an occasional study area, with a window providing a lovely rural view. Three generous bedrooms along with a single are arranged over the first floor, with a further bedroom five/study and a family bathroom.
Dove Cottage is wonderfully situated at the end of a ‘No-through’ country lane, surrounded in open countryside with a working farm and individual homes as neighbours. Off street parking is available to the side of the house, in front of a garage extending to 17’ with a personnel door opening to the rear. The overall plot size extends to approximately 0.18 of an acre, with the majority of the formal garden extending to the front elevation. The garden is laid predominantly to lawn and is very well stocked with a number of mature shrubs and trees, there is also a detached timber summer house. To the rear of the property is a detached brick built outbuilding, providing two stores and the original privy midden. Dove Cottage is an outstanding home located within a picturesque rural hamlet at the foot of The Chilterns, offering fast track services to London Marylebone in 36 minutes.
