Perhaps one of the most recognised properties within the town, a beautiful Grade II listed property enjoying an idyllic setting within the heart of Thame town centre.
1 The Alms Houses is a remarkable Grade II listed period home originally founded by Lord Williams in 1555 within the grounds of the former Grammar school site, offering beautiful town living with off street parking and well tended gardens.
This iconic property has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners and restored by the reputable historic builder Chris Bowler to provide a stunning and spacious home. Particular mention is made of the many historic features including exposed beams, stain glass windows, original fireplaces and panelling to bathroom wall and dining room reclaimed from RMS Mauritania when decommissioned. Internally this property enjoys two generous reception rooms including a pretty sitting room with timber flooring, exposed beams and a modern wood burning stove and a formal dining room with a lovely exposed fireplace and a wood burning stove. Separating the two reception rooms is a recently re-fitted kitchen, comprising a range of classic shaker style cupboard and drawer units with a Belfast sink and timber working surfaces. Appliances include a Cream fronted cast iron Smeg cooker, a fridge/freezer and washing machine. The first floor offers an elegant landing area with a fabulous panelled wall opening to the bathroom, fitted with a cast iron roll top bath, , wash hand basin and wc. Two bedrooms are connected to one end of the property and a substantial master bedroom extends to an impressive 15’ with a triple aspect, a vaulted ceiling and a lovely outlook overlooking the lower High Street.
Outside and of particular note is the private off street parking positioned within the gardens behind elegant wrought iron gates. A further pedestrian gate also opens into the grounds of the property with direct views of the bandstand. The garden is beautifully landscaped and laid predominantly to lawn with a good degree of box hedging a mature trees. A further private courtyard offers an ideal position for entertaining, laid with shingle and enclosed by attractive laurel hedging.
In our opinion this stunning period home offers a most unique opportunity to acquire one of the town’s most iconic homes, available as a full time residence or even a holiday home to enjoy all this fabulous town has to offer.
