This fine family home is set in the hamlet of Northend, high in the Chilterns. Close to Henley and Watlington, Derry House falls into Buckinghamshire which means that it is within the catchment for Buckinghamshire's Grammar Schools. This wonderful family home offers excellent, elegant yet practical reception areas and five bedrooms. Beyond the front door is the reception hall, either side of which is the sitting room and dining room. The sitting room has double aspect views to the front and rear garden and features a fireplace housing a log burner. The dining room, with similar double aspect views, also has the benefit of French doors opening onto the patio. Along the hallway there is a cloakroom and playroom/study to the right and the kitchen is found at the far end. This is a fabulous family kitchen with Shaker style units with built-in appliances, an island unit and oil fired two oven Aga. There is a great family dining area at the far end of the kitchen where there are built-in bookshelves either side of the fireplace. French doors in the kitchen open onto a patio and the enclosed garden bounded by mature hedging extends beyond. The utility room is located off the kitchen and provides a convenient day to day access to the parking area. Stairs from the reception hall lead to a landing where five bedrooms are located. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. The family bathroom, with a separate shower cubicle, serves the remaining bedrooms.
