Originally two workers cottages, Rickyard Cottage is a most attractive period family home constructed from stock brick elevations under a clay tiled roof offering both a formal garden adjoining agricultural land and the unusual advantage of both outbuildings and an enclosed paddock. Forming part of a small hamlet the property benefits from a picturesque semi-rural setting yet is in with easy reach of both the market towns of Thame and Princess Risborough and offers excellent road and rail communications. Internally accommodation includes a small entrance hall with cloakroom which in turn opens onto a spacious 25’ living room with large open brick fireplace and a lovely dining hall with a flagstone floor also featuring a fireplace with inset log burning stove. The kitchen has been updated in more recent years with a shaker style range of base and wall units with granite worktops and integrated Siemens appliances. The kitchen is served by a large utility/boot room with butlers sink and modern condenser gas fired boiler. The rear of the property features a lovely 22’ conservatory with double doors offering views over the rear garden and open views beyond.
On the first floor Rickyard Cottage has a spacious 20’ master bedroom featuring an en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle whilst the remaining bedrooms are served by a modern family bathroom. Outside the property is approached via a gravel drive which also provides access to one further house at the end of the lane. The drive opens onto a substantial gravelled parking area providing access to an agricultural barn with electric and mezzanine level. A five bar gate provides access to a timber stable block with 3 loose boxes, tack room and electric. Behind the barn and stables is an enclosed paddock of about one acre bound by natural hedgerow with separate vehicular access of Stert Road. The current owners have also created a vegetable area which includes two useful storage units.To the rear of the house there is a modest garden offering a sunny southerly aspect laid to patio and bound by an iron railed fence allowing lovely open views over the adjoining agricultural land. There is also a modern brick outbuilding originally used as kennels which offer useful storage.
