A beautifully presented Grade II home, this is an unusual and quirky property all on one level. There is a central kitchen/breakfast/family room with oil fired Aga, and utility room off it. A high ceilinged drawing room has a wood burning fire and is flooded with light from four, large, originally shaped windows. There are three double bedrooms, one with funky mezzanine, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a dramatic, modern wet room incorporated.The piece de resistance of the property is the octagonal folly which was formerly the summer house to the main house, Fawley Court. It has beautiful original cornice work and a carved trophy panel of flowers and ribbons by a pupil of Grinling Gibbons, the premier wood carver in English history - 1648-1721, (who was responsible for the ceiling at Hampton Court and Blenheim Palace.)There is a separate, light, modern office with stable doors and its own cloakroom, accessible by a York stone path. Fully heated, it is the perfect quiet retreat space for anyone working from home. The garden is well developed and includes some of the original oak trees from Capability Brown's parkland, as well as a lovingly planted cottage garden style herbaceous border. There is a sensational yellow climbing rose which covers one side of the property and a clematis arch, as well as a large laburnum tree and other plants of interest.
Approached via a long drive, through impressive entrance gates, and passing the original walled gardens to Fawley Court. Lovely gardens of 0.3 acres, with peaceful views to the west over Chiltern countryside.
From our office in Duke Street proceed to the central traffic lights. Go straight over into Bell Street and at the mini roundabout take the 2nd exit (A4155) signposted Marlow. After a mile or so turn right opposite the lane up to Fawley on the left (Icehouse Lane). Go through the large entrance gates and keep to the left. Continue past the walled garden on your left and follow the road round sharply to the left. The subject property is the first on the right.
