A truly stunning period house with adjoining coach house, set in mature grounds approaching 0.3 acres.
Situated within the highly sought after village of Long Crendon with it’s reputable primary school and picturesque High street, Coombe Cottage is a Grade II listed gem offering exceptional period living, combined with a recently converted coach house with a contemporary interior.
The property is an architecturally handsome detached double bay fronted Grade II Listed house steeped in history dating back originally in parts to the 18th Century - it was a former farmhouse with separate coach house. The property was then extended during Victorian times to provide a generous home with family proportions and has been lovingly maintained over the years. The exposed beams, bright rooms, open fireplaces and wood burning stove provide a wealth of character and charm throughout. The main house comprises 4 bedrooms and is spread over three levels; of particular interest is the large light sitting room with triple aspect views.
Outside, a formerly dilapidated Coach House has been given a serious and positively unexpected architectural makeover. The current owners approached award winning Wolff Architects and bespoke joiners and contractors Stuart Barr CDR Limited to design and build something truly special where contemporary New York loft-style living meets the Home Counties in an effortless and incredibly versatile way - incorporating a studio bedroom / library, en-suite bathroom and two offices on the 1st floor.
The property sits behind a private gate on one of the most popular roads in Long Crendon with off-street parking for ample vehicles in a plot just under 0.3 acres in size and is surrounded by mature formal walled gardens that are beautifully manicured which extend to over a 100ft in length. There is also a sunny patio perfect for al-fresco entertaining.
We all have our own ideas of how we would like our home to look and feel, but only a few of us will ever enjoy the opportunity to create it, and with the planning permission which has been granted this is exactly what is being offered here. As it stands, Coombe Cottage is a beautiful home where one could raise a family, host large marquee garden receptions, run a business out of the Coach House and still find room to curl up by an open fireplace.
