An excellent detached village house offering spacious and well-lit family accommodation together with generous gardens, swimming pool and double garage. No onward chain.
Description: - The house was built in the 1960's and is the work of the prominent designer David Hicks. It is a fine example of that era and maximises both space and light, creating a lovely family home with generous well-lit rooms. Of note is the dual aspect sitting room with fireplace, the 31' family kitchen breakfast room and a substantial master bedroom with en suite bathroom and fine extended views to the Chilterns. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the centre of the village it has well-maintained mature gardens that wrap around the property and include a heated swimming pool. There is an ample driveway that provides parking and an integral double garage with remote operated roller door. This is a well-presented village family house that includes four reception rooms and five bedrooms in generous gardens.
Location: - Britwell Salome village occupies a lovely position at the foot of the Chiltern Hills towards which it enjoys some glorious views and access to the Ridgeway Path. There is a 12th century church, the reputable Red Lion pub and restaurant as well as a farm shop, village hall, children's recreation ground and cricket club. Watlington is not much more than a mile of so from the village and provides good local shopping and public amenities. Access to the M40 is about five miles distant at Junction 6, providing easy access to the Midlands, London and the regional business centres of Oxford and High Wycombe.
