A rare opportunity to purchase a real gem of a property located in a secluded spot on the banks of the river Wye. This charming period cottage dates back to the 1800’s and has retained many of its original features with the added bonus of an idyllic riverside setting. The character of this property shines through as soon as you step inside, with exposed wooden beams throughout, lovely character fireplace and beautiful hook and latch doors. The property is conveniently located within a five mile radius of Beaconsfield, Bourne end, Wooburn green, and High Wycombe with all major road networks close by. The property sits in catchment for excellent local primary and grammar schools.
The Laurels is accessed down a lovely country lane and set behind iron gates. You have the choice of two separate entrances into the house itself. A front door and porch opening into the dining room, or a side door adjacent to the river, leading into the entrance hall. The main hallway has a terracotta tiled floor, a deep storage cupboard, further under stairs storage, and a separate cloakroom.
Leading from the hallway is the attractive country style kitchen fitted with a range of base and wall units and ample worktop space. There is an integrated double eye level oven and a five ring gas hob with extractor over. There is space for a dishwasher, washer/dryer and a fridge freezer. The crowning glory is the picturesque view from your kitchen window onto the courtyard garden and the small river beyond. The dining room and sitting room are both well proportioned rooms with stunning beams and views over the riverside garden. The dining room has a door to the garden, the sitting room has a feature fireplace, storage cupboards to one side and a smaller storage cupboard to the other.
Stairs rise to a central landing which leads to two double bedrooms, a large single room and a family bathroom. The two double bedrooms overlook the garden, have exposed and varnished floorboards, beams to the ceiling and ample space for free standing furniture. The third bedroom has side and rear aspect and is also heavily beamed. The bathroom is fitted in a white suite with bath and shower attachment overhead, WC, and storage wall units.
The private terraced garden provides an oasis of calm with the sound of the running stream in the background, a stunning magnolia tree and a selection of mature shrubbery. There is a separate decking area for outdoor dining. On the left before reaching the cottage you have parking for three cars and a useful triple length garage which could be used as a workshop or a gym or maybe you could store your car in there!
