This charming cottage is situated in Church Street in the heart of the Great Missenden conservation area. Over the years the cottage has been altered and updated by the present owners to provide interesting and good sized accommodation over three floors. However, there is ample scope for additional upgrading and further modernisation to suit current tastes and expectations.
As is traditional with period cottages, the front door opens directly into the sitting room which then leads into the dining room which has a feature fireplace. The galley-style kitchen is a continuation of the dining room and is fitted with a range of cream, Shaker-style units with timber work surface and butler sink. Double doors from the kitchen open onto the garden and a staircase on one side leads to the first floor.
The property has three bedrooms; two bedrooms on the first floor along with the family bathroom and separate night cloakroom. The largest bedroom is on the top floor and runs front to back across the whole property. There is a Juliet balcony at the garden end of the house accessed via double doors , there is also a useful vanity wash basin. There is scope (subject to building regulations approval) to divide this room or to create a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
The property will have tremendous appeal to keen gardeners who will relish the challenge of restoring the large, sunny gardens to their former glory. The gardens consist of separate garden "rooms". One such is the wisteria-clad arbour leading through to a mature pond, beyond which is a greenhouse and kitchen gardens including fruit cages and, to one side, a large garden shed. The garden would be a joy to children but would need work to clear space to run around and play.
