Long Crendon has nearly 100 properties listed by English Heritage, namely due to the absence of a resident Lord of the Manor, which meant that many old properties were not re-built and have survived into the 20th century.
One of these is Quaint Cottage, a charming grade II listed thatched cottage that began life in the 16th century (possibly earlier) as a toll keepers’ cottage and then home to the needle making industry, as were many cottages around that time.
The current owner has painstakingly redesigned this detached cottage, restoring many original features where possible, making this perfect mix of old and new, a modern home for a couple or single professional.
The front door opens onto a good-sized reception room with modern oak floors, fireplace with wood burner, and practically designed “hidden” TV system. The foldaway stairs in the reception create additional space for dining. Just off the reception room is a state of the art modern kitchen with granite worktops and all modern appliances. There is a tasteful modern bathroom off the kitchen with overhead shower.
Accessed through the kitchen is a small but landscaped south-west facing garden and separate vegetable garden. A 17ft by 7ft double glazed office, with wood flooring, acts as a boundary to the right hand side of the garden. On from this is a garage, which is excellent for storage but probably not suitable for cars.
A master bedroom and second small double bedroom with the original oak flooring, to the first floor, completes the accommodation.
The property is double glazed within oak frames. Gas central heating with under-floor heating to the kitchen and bathroom. Off street parking.
Available unfurnished from mid April. Viewing access by appointment.
Sadly, no pets.
