Our beautiful home dates to 1892 and features large rooms with high ceilings, but has been completely modernised to provide safe and extremely comfortable family accommodation. The house is nestled in 20 private acres of gorgeous countryside in a very small village (with traditional pub) within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is approached via electric gates and a long private drive. We are located in a rural, non public lane with neighbours on one side and a private stable yard on the other. Our home offers complete privacy,peace and quiet, woodland walks and many local sights of historic interest, all within a short commute of Central London. The local market towns are 5 to 10 minutes away by car and have a wealth of coffee shops, pubs, small boutiques and eateries. From the town, a regular fast train arrives in Central London in around 40 minutes.Buckingham Palace, Westminster, the West End, and all famous London sights await.
