Ickleton Fields was built in 1993 and was designed for the present owners by the renowned West Country architects Roderick James. It was one of the first properties to be featured in the BBC programme Grand Designs. The house is constructed with a fine exposed oak frame with rendered and oak clad elevations under a clay tile roof. Of particular note is the vaulted and semi-glazed atrium at the centre of the house with a wooden bridge and gallery above providing a spectacular entrance and reception area and opening out onto a large terrace at the rear. The house is well positioned in its grounds and offers tremendous potential to enlarge.
The house is well positioned in its grounds which together with the surrounding unspoilt farmland creates a wonderful setting for the property. A wide terrace is the centrepiece which takes full advantage of the views to the Chilterns. Steps lead down to an area of garden and former meadow with a pond which extends to the east and south boundaries.
