2/3-bedroom house with original features and private garden
A superb semi-detached period house with many original features, a private garden, two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, and two bathrooms, located a few minutes walk from High Wycombe’s centre and train station.
A beautiful stained-glass front door opens onto the ground floor consisting of a welcoming hallway with a stairway rising to the first floor, two reception rooms, a kitchen, and a utility room.
The bright front reception room features an attractive, working fireplace with enamel insets and a large front bay window facing the front garden. The second reception room with its own cast-iron fireplace offers views over the west-oriented back garden and is currently used as a home office/studio. The hallway and both reception rooms benefit from striking, high coved ceilings and wooden floors. Additional storage space can be found in a sizeable cupboard under the stairway.
The Moroccan-tiled kitchen is fully equipped and offers excellent storage capacity. It boasts a large and deep enamel sink as well as an attractive stainless steel range cooker ideal for entertaining. The adjacent utility room contains a sink and a ground-floor toilet, a washing machine and can be used as additional storage space. Both the kitchen and utility room face the rear garden that is accessible through the kitchen. The 30 feet long rear garden, bordered by shrubs and stone planters, benefits from a shed, a greenhouse, and a bench. A decked area, pebbles, and large flat stones make this outdoor patio garden a tranquil oasis, with space and precedent to expand the existing footprint of the house, subject to planning permission.
The impressive wooden stairway, adorned with an original wrought-iron balustrade under a stained-glass window, rises to the first floor. There you will find two good-sized double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room, and a modern family bathroom fitted with a bath, a separate walk-in shower, a sink and toilets. A boarded loft space can be reached from the landing via a pull-down ladder which offers a very generous storage space.
This elegant home built in the early 1900’s is full of character and spans over 1000 square feet. It has been well-maintained and is perfect for a young family or first-time buyers. It sits in a quiet street only minutes from the city centre, its shopping center and train station. Commuters can travel to London Marylebone station in 27 minutes and to Oxford in 45 minutes. Heathrow airport is accessible in 30 minutes by car or bus. Resident parking is available on-street.
The immediate neighbourhood faces a large green space called The Rye. A stream runs through with a boating lake and many paths through to acres of woodland.
