A pretty 3 bedroom semi-detached cottage with a due south aspect, with a detached barn that could form additional living accommodation or home office, plus a two-bay garage
Situated in the desirable hamlet of Fawley, a conservation Area approximately 600 ft above sea level with access to a number of footpaths over the glorious Chiltern hills. The cottage is situated in Buckinghamshire with access to the Grammar schools in Marlow (7.5 miles) and High Wycombe (12 miles) respectively. Henley is just 3 miles away with a full range of shops, pubs and restaurants, there is also a Tesco's, Sainsburys and Waitrose. There is a 3 screen cinema, theatre, and Henley plays host to the Royal Regatta followed by the music and arts festival. There is an excellent fitness centre at Danesfield and a Montessori school adjoining the green. There is golf at Huntercombe and Henley, Rowing at Leander and upper Thames and the Phyllis Court Club is a private members club on the edge of the town with a new leisure centre. There is racing at Windsor, Ascot and Newbury.
This semi-detached brick cottage has a tiled roof with exposed wooden gables. It is an enchanting cottage and has over the years been thoughtfully modernised and improved and has the benefit of a detached brick barn. This barn could be converted into additional living accommodation and would form a useful annex / studio flat or home office. It also has a two-bay garage and useful store and WC. The current owners extended the drawing room with pretty patio doors onto the cobbled rear garden and at the same time added the front porch. There is an oil Rayburn in the kitchen for cooking and a separate oil boiler for heating and hot water. The gardens have been the source of considerable thought and care and now offer established specimen shrubs, plants and spring bulbs which set off this pretty cottage to its best advantage. A viewing is highly recommended.
