A rare opportunity to acquire a private, detached period farmhouse set in 24 acres in the middle of open countryside with far reaching views.

The main sitting room in the Farmhouse is well proportioned with oak wooden flooring, a stone fireplace and triple aspect windows. The second reception room features an exposed brick fireplace with wood-burner, oak wooden floors and dual aspect views over the garden and paddocks. It is currently used as a snug and will also make an excellent family dining room.

Sliding windows open out onto the large terrace giving inside/outside entertaining with sensational views over fields and woodland towards historic Stowe.

A studio/games room/gym may be found in the courtyard, which could also be converted to a granny annex STPP. Overall the accommodation is flexible, modern and very well presented totalling 2075sq ft.

A rare opportunity to acquire a wonderful family home with gardens, paddocks, barns and stables in a private tranquil location with outstanding views, yet still close to local amenities.


The farmhouse is surrounded by established gardens with lawns, borders, raised vegetable beds and a terrace for entertaining with stunning countryside views towards Stowe. The 24 acre plot, bordered by established hedgerows, offers a range of well-maintained paddocks with easy access to the barns and nine stables.
