Built in 1906, Couching House is an imposing three-storey building in the heart of the town with a handsome bay-fronted façade and sash windows. A collection of eight individual apartments have been created incorporating fitted kitchens by local designer Cucucine and bath or shower rooms with fittings by Villeroy & Boch. A 10 year structural warranty, basement storage unit and secure gated parking is offered with each apartment. This flat has the benefit of fine views over the town to the Chilterns from bay windows with plantation shutters.
Watlington is reputedly England’s smallest town with its origins dating from the 6th century. The town has a range of sports facilities that embrace football and cricket as well as tennis, squash and bowls. There are good local shops including a first class butcher and delicatessen and some excellent restaurants and pubs. Watlington Primary school and Rainbow Corner day nursery and pre-school have an ‘outstanding’ ofsted rating and senior education is provided by the well-regarded Icknield Community College. The Chiltern Hills rise above the town and offer some of the finest landscapes in south-east England. There is much on offer here for outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers as The Icknield Way (Ridgeway National Trail) passes close to the town. Watlington is also the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kite that now soar above the town’s roof tops.
