Kitchen, Shower Room, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Three Bedrooms, Family Bathroom. Parking for 4
Vehicles. Garage, Lawns and a Pond. Open Views. 0.17 of an Acre Plot
The cottage sits at the very end of a small country lane and enjoys fabulous views over Waddesdon Estate land towards Lodge Hill, on top of which is the renowned Rothschild mansion Waddesdon Manor.
The building dates from the late 1800’s and the owner has a document denoting the sale of 4 cottages by the Rothschild estate to Baroness Kinloss in 1915. Those
four cottages are now one pair of semi detached cottages, number 32 being converted from two dwellings in 1997.
The property now requires refurbishment and offers an excellent opportunity for both updating and enlarging, indeed planning consent for front and side
extensions expired in January 2021. The approved drawings provided a remodelled kitchen and open plan dining and family room on the ground floor
and the addition of a master bedroom on the first floor, both areas aspects designed to absorb the view.
Externally the attractive elevations are brick beneath a tiled roof, the main roof and the shed roof each retaining the original diamond patterning.
Inside is a fitted kitchen and both reception rooms have working fireplaces. Upstairs the smallest
bedroom is capable of accommodating a double bed and in the bathroom is a freestanding roll top bath.
The approach is from a single track lane spurring off of a village lane, number 32 occupies the end position and as soon as you round the corner to the house the
beautiful backdrop is apparent. At the entrance is a five bar gate and then gravelled parking for 4 vehicles. Adjacent the cottage are the old toilets, brick and timber, and nearby is a garage that has power connected. The garden is mostly lawn and on two levels with a pond by the far boundary. It extends to 0.17 of an acre, some 130ft front to back, and it is all extremely private.
