Tucked away in the centre of this very pretty village, sits Elmhurst.
Dating to the late 1890s, this gorgeous, double fronted former farmhouse is centrally positioned in its own mature, generous grounds.
Tastefully decorated in neutral, restful colours, the house has been sympathetically extended to provide the perfect marriage of old and new, offering the best of both worlds to the discerning buyer; the elegance of a period home, coupled with the benefits of substantial family accommodation, ideal for today`s living. Somewhat unusually for a property of the era, it also boasts secure, gated car parking for 4-5 cars.
Walking along the garden path, you will initially be captivated by the glorious gardens, roses and lavender that surround you. However, as you reach the house, the stained glass front door, complete with original, hand painted house name above, directs your attention to what lies beyond.
The large, welcoming hallway, with its high ceilings and wide staircase, leads through to a sizeable sitting room and a very comfortable family room, both with large bay windows. The sitting room also has an open fireplace, complete with a French marble chimney piece that is nothing short of exquisite.
To the rear of the house, accessed from both the sitting room and the kitchen/dining room, the �Amdega` conservatory really is a room for all seasons. At almost 20ft long, this stylish addition would, without doubt, be equally at home as the setting for the family Christmas tree, as it would be housing Mediterranean plants on a summer`s day.
The kitchen/dining room is well appointed, and has lovely views of the rear garden through its dual aspect.
The East �wing` of the house boasts a large home-office and a utility room, ideal for today`s family living. However, with its own separate entrance, it could just as easily be adapted to use as a self-contained annexe.
Ascend the original pine staircase where, upstairs, are six double bedrooms; four on the first floor, plus a further two on the second. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room, and there is also a large family bathroom with double shower.
Outside, the gardens are simply stunning. Designed by highly respected landscape and garden designer Julia Fogg, the mature rear garden affords a high degree of privacy, stocked with trees, shrubs and perennials. The frontage is bounded by a brick and flint wall and electrically operated gates which, together with low level lighting, provide both security and convenience to the car parking area. Finally, a brick built workshop provides very useful storage.
The property is located close to the centre of this sought after village, at the foot of the Chiltern Hills.
Village facilities include a 13th Century Church, village hall, an excellent C-of-E primary school, two pubs, �The Chequers` fine dining pub and restaurant, a golf club, plus a range of local shops. The village also benefits from a regular bus service.
The nearby village of Wendover has a pretty High Street and a good selection of shops and facilities, together with a weekly Thursday market and mainline train station. In addition, Stoke Mandeville mainline train station is approximately 1.5 miles away and also provides a regular service to London`s Marylebone station in around 55 minutes. Alternatively, Tring station, around 6 miles away, offers a regular service to Euston in around 40 minutes.
Elmhurst is surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including nearby Wendover Woods and Coombe Hill. Or, for those seeking indoor recreational facilities, Buckinghamshire`s County Town, Aylesbury, is around 4 miles and boasts a multiplex cinema, shopping centres, and a recently completed �42 million theatre.
The area boasts fine educational facilities, both in the state maintained and independent sectors. Aylesbury`s grammar schools are renowned, and private schools include Piper`s Corner, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, and Berkhamsted School.
