Spacious village home in Prestwood reflects beauty inside and out

4th August 2007 Print
Thimble Farm Situated on the rural edge of Prestwood is ‘Thimble Farm’, a spacious village home set within over one acre of picturesque gardens. Dating back to 1912, ‘Thimble Farm’ offers an array of stunning features and luxury amenities, providing five-bedrooms, five-reception rooms and a heated swimming pool. This home is perfect for a large family who love the outdoors.

The ground floor has a well designed open plan kitchen/breakfast room with wood flooring and exquisite kitchen units, gas fired Aga, built in dishwasher, electric oven and grill, and French doors which open elegantly onto the garden. The five reception rooms are all individually designed, featuring a period style fireplace and superb inglenook fireplace and the dining room has French doors to the garden, giving it a bright and airy feel.

Also located on the ground floor is the study/family room, utility, cloakroom and the heating/pump room (for the heating, hot water and pool). A delightful snug/garden room overflows with natural light through a large bay window and French doors to gardens: great for those lazy summer days.

Moving upstairs to the first floor, the five-bedrooms and two-en-suites are all impressively maintained and offer ample living space. The master bedroom and bedroom two have spectacular views, built in wardrobes and fireplaces for that added touch of warmth and elegance. Bedroom three will suit the ‘shopaholic’ of the family as it has the added convenience of a dressing room with hanging rails and shelving, whilst bedroom four also has an en-suite bathroom. The family bathroom is also immaculately presented and equipped with heated towel rail and under-floor heating.

Bedroom-five is located on the second floor and offers plenty of storage space and glorious views over the gardens.

The main focal point of this property is the beautifully maintained gardens, comprising paved seating areas, well stocked flower beds and lawns. With summer here, what could be more enjoyable than your own private heated swimming pool (37 x 16ft) - ideal for daily exercise and great fun for the whole family. This exceptional garden makes this home great for spending time outdoors, entertaining family and friends.

There are three timber sheds located at the bottom of the garden with lighting and power, which can be converted and used as playrooms, a study, storage or even workshops.

The location of ‘Thimble Farm’ could not be more peaceful situated in the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by glorious countryside and stunning views. Just a short distance away is Great Missenden with its delightful selection of shops, public houses and restaurants, Regular train services to London Marylebone station are available from the mainline station in Great Missenden and there are excellent road links to the M40 and M25 motorways.
