Duffields is a detached house situated in the charming much sought after vibrant village of Medmenham. Dating in part to the 17th Century with principle Edwardian additions the main reception rooms face south with views over the lovely garden and paddock. Set back from the lane the pathway and driveway provide access to the garaging, parking and front door. The kitchen breakfast room is situated in the oldest part of the property with exposed beams, stone flag flooring and Aga. The Study is accessed from here together with the utility room, cloakroom & shower room. The formal reception rooms are well proportioned and offer a flexible layout including a well-proportioned dining room and drawing room with open fireplace and French doors. On the first floor are four bedrooms, one with en suite and two further well-appointed bathrooms. The second bedroom has a dressing room and these two rooms would provide an excellent arrangement for a teenager or could be altered to provide a fifth bedroom. In addition to the main house is a self-contained annexe providing secondary accommodation with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom ideal for guests.
Outside is a double garage and to the rear of the property an additional detached barn/double garage with 2 stables. The gardens enjoy a west facing aspect and are laid mainly to lawn with well-tended flower beds, mature trees and hedges. At the end of the lawn a wildflower area leads to the grass paddock and the boundary is enclosed by hedges and fencing providing privacy and seclusion. There is vehicular access to the front of the house via wooden gates to the rear of the property and the property enjoys delightful views over its own garden and paddock to the fields beyond.
