Why buy this home?
Currently set up as a four double bedroom house and large one bedroom annexe, this family home offers a lot of flexibility and the ability to not only reconfigure, but extend to suit your needs.
Situated on a private lane of just 7 houses, as you approach this home you truly feel like you are in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Having been improved over the years, the L-shape creates a natural front courtyard area with ample off-road parking for up to 9 cars. There is a double garage with power for those looking to store cars or for a workshop.
A brick-built porch leads you into this home with there being three directions you can take once inside. To the right leads you passed the WC and into the large utility room which was once a double carport. Now it is the perfect space to clean muddy paws after a long walk in the surrounding countryside, and the internal store room can be used as a gym (like the current owners) or the stud walls could be removed to make one larger room.
The door to the left of the entrance hall leads you to the 9m long kitchen/diner. Currently fitted with shaker-style units and white worktops, this room offers massive potential. The current owners were going to turn part of this room into a grand entrance hall and build a new impressive kitchen/family room across the back of the house as per the planning permission granted (ref: 20/01661/APP with Aylesbury Vale Area of Buckinghamshire Council). As you can see though, the current kitchen is in good condition as it is. There is under-counter space for two appliances as well as an eye-level double oven and electric hob. It is worth noting that there is no gas to the village with most homes being fuelled by oil or LPG, however the current owners have had an efficient air source heat pump fitted which isn't reflected in the EPC rating.
This room opens up to the conservatory at the back of the home which is being used as a dining area. The conservatory also links to the living room creating a wrap-around space. The living room has a feature log burner and is an inviting space. Glass doors also lead back to the kitchen/diner.
The kitchen/diner also has a door to the current annexe living room. Naturally the annexe could be incorporated back into the main house meaning this space could be used as a second living room or large formal dining room. There are French doors off to a decked area of the garden. Being self-contained means that there is also a modern kitchen/diner and modern four piece bathroom. The large annexe master bedroom has a wall of fitted wardrobes, but foresight from a previous owner means that behind these wardrobes is a ready-made doorway through to the double garage should you wish to convert this space.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms with the master bedroom being a large impressive space. As it sits over the kitchen/diner, it too is 9m in length and is currently divided up with a dressing area and four piece ensuite. As this room is part of a double storey extension, it has its own loft meaning vaulted ceilings could be created.
Two of the other bedrooms have also been extended in the past which is why they are so spacious. The family bathroom is also four piece with a shower cubicle. Under current plans, this would turn into a new walkway to the extension over the utility room where a new guest room with ensuite would be created.
The name 'Little Orchard' comes from the land's history as an orchard for one of the older homes in the village. This is evident throughout the rear garden due to the mature fruit trees. Sitting on approximately 0.5 acres, the garden space is substantial, and even with plans to extend, the plot would still be very impressive. Even though it is large, it is still very private due to the layout of surrounding homes. Being a wraparound plot means side access on both sides of the house.
