Why buy this home?

As the name may suggest, Vicarage Road is one of the original roads of Whaddon with The Selbie Memorial Congregational Church at the entrance on the corner of Stock Lane. Homes on the road vary in age, offering an interesting blend of architectural styles which makes driving to and from the cottage an enjoyable experience.

Set back from the road, the first surprise this home offers is the presence of a driveway for two cars which is rare for a cottage of this age. The impressive front garden leads to the brick-built entrance porch which proudly displays 'Lowena Cottage' above the door. Your eyes can't help but be drawn to the vast garden which leads off to the side of the cottage, where a beautiful pink cherry blossom tree stands proud of place.

After the entrance porch you step into the farmhouse style kitchen with its shaker style units and solid wood worktops. No cottage kitchen would be complete without a range cooker and porcelain sink, so you won't be disappointed here. There is space for a dining table in the middle or pushed up against the wall. At the rear of this room is access to the utility which has a sink and space for washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer, as well as a WC. There is a side door with access to the rear garden.

To the left of the kitchen is the formal living room which has a feature fireplace and oak flooring. As this is a dedicated living space, there is plenty of room for sofas and armchairs. From here is also access to the study which could also be used as a playroom if you have young children. Double glass doors lead to the conservatory which is a brilliant addition as it provides the perfect place to sit and admire the garden. This additional space could be used as a formal dining room or as a room to retire to after dinner.

Upstairs could be mistaken for a more modern house due to the bedroom sizes and bathrooms. The master bedroom has an entrance area before you reach the bed area which could be utilised for wardrobes. There is also an ensuite with a shower cubicle. The second and third bedrooms are a very similar size as they would have originally been the main bedrooms in the two separate cottages. As such they are a good size with space for a double bed and wardrobes. The fourth bedroom can fit a double bed but is more comfortable as a single. These three bedrooms are served by the family bathroom which has an electric shower and heated towel rail.

The masterpiece of this home is the absolutely stunning garden. As it is two cottages combined, you have the rear garden of the original mid-terraced cottage and the side garden of the original end of terrace cottage. However, the current owner has also purchased additional garden from a neighbour which is why it is such an impressive size. Scattered with fruit trees, it has the feel of an orchard and is very tranquil. You wouldn't be blamed for spending more time in the garden than the house in the summer, such is the attraction of this natural beauty.

More about the location...

Whaddon is a village and also a civil parish within the unitary authority area of Buckinghamshire, England. It is situated just outside of Milton Keynes.

The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'hill where wheat is grown'. The village is referred to several times in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle generally in the form of Hwætædun.

The village is at the centre of the ancient Whaddon Chase, the site for many centuries of royal hunting lands. Whaddon Chase is designated an area of 'Special Landscape Interest'.

Whaddon Church of England School is a mixed Church of England primary school. It is a voluntary controlled school, which takes children from the age of four through to the age of eight. The school has approximately 50 pupils.

Whaddon Hall, the village manor, was once home to the Selby family (also known as Selby-Lowndes), whose ancestor William Lowndes built the larger and grander Winslow Hall. Both mansions are still private houses. During the Second World War Whaddon Hall served as headquarters of Section VIII (Communications) of MI6, as an outpost of Bletchley Park.
