Situated in the centre of the popular Buckinghamshire village of Buckland and approached via electric gates and a long sweeping driveway, the main house is wonderfully set back offering an excellent degree of privacy. Believed to date back to circa 1600 with later additions in the 18th and 19th Century, Church Farm offers spacious and flexible accommodation throughout.

The dining room is equally a generous size offering a fantastic room in which to entertain for more formal occasions. There are two further rooms which are currently used as a family room which has a wonderful Inglenook fireplace with log burner and exposed timbers and a separate study/5th bedroom with an adjacent shower room. The kitchen/ breakfast room features handmade oak units with granite worktops and integrated appliances with quality craftsmanship which is apparent throughout the property and is very in keeping for a house of this age and standing.

The master bedroom has a large en-suite with rolltop bath and separate shower and additional storage cupboard which could be used as a wardrobe.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms- the main bedroom has a dressing area and ensuite bathroom and there is a further double bedroom and a separate shower room which complete the accommodation. Being just under 2000 Sq ft in total this space offers great flexibillity for a new owner to accommodate or entertain family, run a business or just for use as overflow guest accommodation. There is the opportunity to space plan the internal layout to create additional bedrooms.
The stunning gardens surround the property on four sides and are wonderfully mature and private. Immediately to the front of the main house is a circular lawn which is surrounded by a paved terrace which is perfectly orientated to capture the afternoon sun.
