A superb family home situated in a beautiful, peaceful and private area of Marlow Bottom. Six bedroom suites and two or three reception rooms. Swimming pool. Mature gardens. Double garage.
Burford Grange was originally built in the mid-20th Century and latterly extended; it provides flexible and balanced accommodation, including six bedroom suites and two or three reception rooms. The property has recently been refurbished by the current owner, with oak flooring laid in the majority of the rooms.
The front door enters a spacious hallway with a beautiful feature wooden staircase to the first floor and oak flooring and doors leading to the reception rooms. The large, double aspect sitting room is entered from the right of the hall, with oak flooring and an open fireplace and French windows to the rear terrace. On the left of the hallway is the superb kitchen/breakfast room, with a comprehensive range of bespoke built American maple wall and floor units with composite worktops and maple island dining top. A full range of Miele appliances includes two conventional ovens, induction hob, microwave, steam oven, dishwasher, and an American GE fridge/freezer with mirror front panels. Adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room is a wonderful vaulted library/dining room with oak floor and American maple shelving and a staircase to the principal bedroom suite with a glass wall and balcony overlooking the library. To the rear of the library is a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, an ideal guest suite or staff accommodation; there is also access to the utility room with a door to the front of the property.
All bedrooms have en suite bath and/or shower rooms, and the quality and presentation throughout is excellent, with large windows and views of the grounds surrounding the house. From the first floor landing is access to the attic room that has been converted into a fantastic bedroom/sitting room/office space, with Velux windows allowing light to flood in throughout the room.
The gardens are gently sloping and laid mainly to lawn with a wooded area to one side. To the rear of the property is a wide terrace accessed via French windows from the kitchen and sitting room, an ideal space for alfresco entertaining. A lovely heated swimming pool with an electric safety cover together with a pool house and heat exchanger provides a great amenity. The garden is very well screened, providing a sense of quiet privacy. Overall the plot is just over an acre, providing a wonderful mix of lawns, borders and small woodland. Being southwest facing, the rear terrace and gardens are full of sunlight for most of the day.
