Originally built around 1947, Forrigan has been substantially renovated and remodelled in more recent years to blend contemporary living with the traditional feel of a country house in tune with the peaceful rural setting.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors with generous proportions throughout and all aspects carefully planned to make maximum advantage of the stunning views over the grounds and the woodland beyond. Particularly fine features include a wonderful 36 ft wide living room with bi-folding doors stepping out to the terrace garden, and the stylish kitchen occupies the entire west side of the house with triple aspect views over the grounds and bi folding and double doors out to the garden. The fist floor has three bedroom suites, plus a fourth bedroom and large stylish family bathroom, whilst the top floor has another two bedroom suites, making a total of six bedroom and five bathroom.
The house stands on a slightly elevated position from the lane and approached along an "In and Out" driveway along the front of the house, to one side is the garaging with a generous screened gravelled parking area to keep the driveway clear. The area surround the side and rear of the house is a wonderful paved terrace with brick retaining walls, ideal for outside entertaining and dining. The centre peace of the terrace are wide steps leading up to an expansive area of lawn, the tree have been carefully cultivated to provide an "avenue" up to the beautiful woodland beyond which also provide a wonderful back drop to the main grounds of the house. Discreetly screened to one side is the tennis court, with an attractive spectators pavilion.
The grounds of Forrigan link up with a myriad of stunning walks both in the immediate woodland, which has a wonderful carpet of Bluebells in the spring and provides year round colour and tranquillity, and links up with a wonderful array of of footpaths and bridleways in the Chiltern Hills.
