An exceptional modern family home with excellent commuting links in the stunning Chiltern countryside
Built six years ago by the current owners, Orchard House perfectly combines the traditional with the practicality of a newly built home and as a result the property is immaculately presented. The classic brick and flint elevations with sash windows and a tiled roof is not what one often expects from a modern home and offers no compromise on style with the elegant moulded bay to the rear. The accommodation is spread over four floors and is well proportioned with enormous attention to detail throughout.
A particular feature is the beautifully finished kitchen/breakfast room with extensive hand built wall and base units with an Aga and space for an American fridge freezer. This is linked to the superb vaulted family room which has bi-folding doors opening onto the south facing paved terrace.
On the lower ground floor is the exceptional indoor swimming pool which is in a stone surround and the adjoining rooms (currently used as a cinema and games room) could provide secondary accommodation for staff or a dependent relative. A lift connects all four floors.
Orchard House is approached over a gravel drive and sits within approximately 2 acres. The gardens and grounds lie principally to the rear of the house and comprise an expanse of lawn bordered by mature trees and hedges. There is a south facing terrace perfect for entertaining and from here a path leads to the tennis court. There is a paddock beyond.
