Alnwick Farm House is an elegant period home built in a Georgian style situated on a private three quarter mile long driveway in an idyllic location.
Offering a historic tale of years gone by whilst also lending itself to a stylish and modern perspective.
Originally believed to be a dairy farm, the property was then reputedly used as a hunting lodge for the Duke of Leeds, before being acquired by the Rothschild family who leased the property as a tenanted farm.
Following an extensive restoration program, the Farm House is now presented in outstanding condition and provides a unique blend of historic features with contemporary style. The graceful main entrance hall allows access to four generous reception rooms, three of which boasting working fireplaces. Numerous rooms also benefit from dual aspect outlooks supplying stunning views across the Chiltern Hills.
The entertainment hub of this beautiful home is undoubtedly the magnificent kitchen/living area which has a two zone centrally heated under floor heating system and is immersed in natural light via a large, triple glazed roof lantern. The beautiful kitchen has been fitted with a Bertazzoni range cooker with three electronic ovens and a six burner gas hob. French doors open to an east facing patio and floating decked jetty over looking the large natural pond. Adjacent to the kitchen/living area is the formal drawing room also with french doors, this time opening to the landscaped rear garden which is south facing and presents sweeping rural views of the Chiltern Hills. The land includes two fully enclosed paddocks including water supplies, all of which can be viewed from across the back and side of the house. To the side of the property sits a stunning oak framed garage in addition to a gravelled area offering parking for a total of up to ten vehicles. There are hot water solar panels on the roof which will remain with the property.
Four double bedrooms on the first floor are accessed by the main staircase, three of which with working fireplaces and two with en-suite shower rooms. Also on the first floor is a stunning family bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and the other with an en-suite bath and shower room. The first of which is accessed via a staircase in the rear lobby next to the kitchen, whilst the other is accessed via a staircase in the drawing room.
Whilst being located within a comfortable commute to London, the property also offers the scope to work from home with one of the current reception rooms already being utilised as a study.
