Tenure : Leasehold


This grade II listed building dates from the late 16th century and was originally a town house that was remodelled in the 19th century to provide a house with shop premises. Subsequently the living accommodation was converted to provide three flats. This flat has a total floor area of almost 900 sq ft and occupies the entire second floor of the building, including a loft room that now provides a bedroom with dressing room and study. The reception rooms, which are large and south-facing, offer a fine outlook to the town's 17th century town hall. There is a communal garden and storerooom to the rear of the building.


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.
