the middle of its land. The property is adjoining undulating chalk downland farm which is predominantly down to a cereal rotation and it should be noted that a number of local farmers have outdoor pig units with movable pig arcs. The

landscape is interspersed with a number of woodland blocks which enhance the feel of the AONB. Sheepcote Farmhouse comprises a cream rendered house under a slate and tiled roof. It lies in a secluded position with a lawned garden to the front and rear and is approached over a private drive from the Byway. The front door opens

into a bright entrance hall of which lies the well-proportioned sitting rooms with excellent views to the south. Also off the hall is the kitchen/breakfast room with the dining room wood burning stove and bread oven leading into the study. The remaining rooms on the ground floor are an extensive

glazed conservatory, utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor is the south facing master suite, two en-suite bedrooms, two further bedrooms and bathroom. The Farmhouse has excellent views in every direction even though due to its setting it does not have far reaching views over the Downs or Chilterns.


Sheepcote Farmhouse lies about one mile from the A417 and is approached over a byway open to all traffic which is tarmacked along the first section before passing onto a good stone drive up to the entrance gate at the end of the private drive leading to an extensive stoned parking and turning

area. There is a small garden shed for storage but there is plenty of scope to build a garage with additional storage areas. There are mature woods lying to the west and east of the house and the additional land established to cereals could be seeded to form two/three paddocks for horses/

ponies with room for stabling. Any new buildings/structures would be subject to planning permission.
