Property of the Day: Bockmer End Farmhouse, Buckinghamshire
THE PROPERTY: This spacious five-bedroom home is perfect for family living. Though the original parts of the structure are Tudor, the house boasts a pretty Georgian façade, and a contemporary extension at the rear of the property opens up the ground floor space beautifully. The grounds include a formal garden, vegetable garden, orchard, paddock, ample garaging and approximately three acres of land. There is an additional cottage in the grounds offering guest or staff accommodation.
THE LOCATION: Bockmer End is situated between the towns of Marlow and Henley and lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Specific Scientific Interest. Surrounded by farmland and picturesque woodland, the property is a stunning countryside idyll. Central London is only an hour’s drive away, while trains from nearby High Wycombe run directly to London Marylebone in as little as 30 minutes.
THE INTERIOR: The ground floor is open and airy with the kitchen/breakfast area flowing easily into the stunning orangery-style dining and sitting room. The formal drawing room features a Tudor fireplace and there is also a high-ceilinged study and a gym. A spiral staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a spacious master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom, and stairs to a private dressing room/study on the second floor. The guest suite has a private sitting room and an en suite, and there are a further three bedrooms on the first floor.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The exposed beams of the ground floor reception rooms are a particularly charming feature of this country home.
