A handsome and imposing Edwardian bay fronted house occupying a sizeable plot in the centre of Watlington. Its location within a two minute walk of the High street means that it is very well placed for all the amenities of the town and yet it is largely unaffected by any traffic noise. Although the house appears to have been well maintained it does require modernisation and updating. It also presents an opportunity to remodel and further extend to create a substantial and characterful family home, subject to planning. The principal rooms are spacious with good natural lighting and generous ceiling heights. A large loft presents further opportunities. The house is set well back from the road behind a lawned approach and has a wide driveway alongside that provides ample off-road parking. A generous garden lies to the rear.
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.
A wide driveway approach to the flank of the house offers ample off-road parking and the opportunity, subject to planning, for a garage.
The garden is south-east facing and is laid to lawn with a number of mature specimen trees.
Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity. Gas fired central heating.
