Anyone who has ever watched an episode of "Midsummer Murders" will be familiar with the beautiful hamlet of The Lee; a quintessential Chilterns village, mentioned in the Domesday Book, that has changed little in a hundred years.
Entry to the property is through a porch framed by two cast iron pillars into the entrance hall.
The triple aspect front sitting room is to the left with a feature ceramic wood burning stove and stairs to the first floor. A broad opening leads to a rear, double aspect sitting room overlooking the fields and garden. The focal point of the room is an open fire with marble surround and carved oak mantel. A pair of doors open into the large conservatory, with under floor heating, and to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cream Shaker-style units with granite work surface and the usual fitted appliances with a feature cream, oil fired AGA. The double aspect, dining room/family room is adjacent to the kitchen with a door leading to the study and a further "air lock" door leading to the double garage.
Upstairs, there are three, large, double bedrooms all being double aspect with views over fields to the rear, the garden or the village to the front. The master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom with tile-enclosed, corner bath, corner shower, W.C and basin. The second bedroom has an ensuite shower room with the final bedroom being adjacent to the family bathroom which is fitted with a cream suite of bath (with shower over), W.C. and basin. There is scope here to alter into a further enclosed suite.
Unusually for properties in the Chilterns, the Lee House was built with a large basement which receives light from a light well and is currently used as an office. A large cupboard contains the boiler room and under floor heating manifolds.
Outside, the gardens are extensive and wrap around the house. There is a large, pumped koi carp pond with an adjacent sunken garden. Further round, the more formal gardens overlook the open farmland beyond. Close to the house there is a covered lap-pool with the associated pump and heating system in a nearby brick outbuilding. Further round again is another, larger, sunken patio accessed from the sitting room. At the front the property is approached across a gravel driveway with parking for several vehicles. A substantial boulder of local pudding stone provides an interesting focal point just beyond the garages.
Being offered with no upper chain.
