Period House in Buckinghamshire

This house dates back to the 16th century and it is thought to be the oldest property on the street. It has an acre of landscaped garden and a giant yew tree that probably pre-dates the house itself. It is located in Buckinghamshire, only about half an hour from London by train.

Freelance TV director, Wendy Arnot and her husband Geoff say about it: ‘The house was fantastic: it had been so beautifully renovated by the previous owners we knew we wouldn’t have to do anything immediately, rather take our time making it our own.’ Geoff continues: ‘The garden, though, is what sold it to me: the owners had put so much time and money turning it into an oasis, separated into different zones, with a pond here, a pergola there; and dotted around are various outbuildings that we knew would come in handy.’

Renovations since moving in have been kept to a minimum: they’ve repaired original oak doors, widened the drive and added security gates, and built a small oak porch to the side entrance; they’ve also enhanced the bathroom.
