The house occupies a quiet and attractive setting around a private green that forms the centerpiece of Lilacs Place. The houses are traditional in style and are set well away from the highway but only a five minute walk from Watlington High Street. This house sits at the back of the green and benefits from a large south-facing garden that is some 75' in depth and backs onto farmland. The interior is well arranged and incorporates a family kitchen/breakfast room and a large open plan double reception room with fireplace. All the bedrooms are double in size and the principal room has an en-suite shower room. There is an attractive outlook across the green to the front and extended views to the rear. Although the house is well-presented and maintained there are opportunities to upgrade the fittings and finishes and extend to the rear as neighbouring properties have done (subject to planning and building consents).
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.
