An 18th century grade II listed family townhouse of great character in the centre of Watlington with a landscaped walled garden, barn-style garage/workshop/studio and private parking

Tenure : Freehold


This handsome grade II listed townhouse was built in about 1725 and was remodelled later that same century. A further single storey extension undertaken some 20 years ago extended the accommodation and together with a considerable amount of enhancement work has substantially added to the function and appeal of the property.

Providing generously proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights throughout there are a wealth of original features including fireplaces, exposed timber framework and panelling. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes a large cellar. Of particular note is the large family kitchen with Aga that opens onto the gardens and an elegant first floor sitting room with panelled walls and large sash windows.

A richly stocked landscaped walled garden with south-facing aspect lies to the rear and includes Box topiary, espalier fruit trees and a rose garden. Beyond the garden a rear driveway with parking leads to a large barn style double garage, workshop and studio.


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.


The house has pedestrian access from the High Street. Vehicular access is provided via a shared driveway to the rear that offers gravelled parking for 2 or 3 cars and access to the barn-style double garage. A gated footpath the flank of the garage provides access to the garden and house.


A lovely landscaped south-facing walled garden lies to the rear of the house. It is substantial and extends some 250' in a formal design that incorporates a paved courtyard, well-stocked herbaceous borders, a rose garden, espalier fruit trees, Box topiary and shaped Yew hedgerows. There is access to the workshop/studio and double garage to the rear.


A large part brick and oak barn-style outbuilding at the rear of the garden provides a double garage with an attached workshop and internal staircase to a first floor studio/office/store. There is a shared driveway from Couching Street providing vehicular access to the garage and a gravel approach provides private parking for two or three vehicles.
