Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1769 by Sir John Vanhattem as an ‘Eye Catcher’ to house his fossil and ammonite collection (many of which are visible and worked into the limestone and red brick fabric of the building) the property offers a wonderful blend of history and modern convenience. Presenting a rare opportunity to purchase a fascinating Grade II* Listed folly which has been fully renovated and meticulously restored by the current owners to now provide a remarkable home laid out over 3 octagonal floors. Entering the property you are welcomed by an abundance of charm and character with exposed stone and brickwork internal walls providing an impressive and inspiring atmosphere. Following the stairs down from the entrance hall, the kitchen breakfast room offers high ceilings, exposed oak timbers, and under floor heating leading through to the utility. Modern fittings and solid wood work surfaces abound, with a charming gas range cooker set into the fireplace making a pleasant feature. Rising to the first floor, the sitting room is quite a
delight, enjoying views from almost every angle, high ceilings, oak beams and flooring along with a feature fire place. In addition there is a glazed door which leads to the rear terrace and steps down to the garden. The second floor offers two double bedrooms, both ensuite and benefits from under floor heating. The stairs rise further to a roof top terrace which boasts 360 views of the surrounding countryside.

Outside:

Set back within its 3/4 of an acre plot, the property is
accessed via an electric five bar gate and circular gravel drive which provides plentiful parking. In addition, full planning permission is granted to add a detached storage room (planning ref 16/02261/ALB & 16/02259/APP). Flanked to the rear and sides by open fields, the panoramic views of the Aylesbury Vale and Waddesdon Estate are truly breathtaking. The total plot measures 0.75 of an acre and is planted with several mature Oak, Beech, Scots Pine and Holly trees which surround this striking castle.

Location:

The property is situated on the A418 on the outskirts of Dinton, a picturesque village situated at the foothills of the beautifully wooded Chiltern escarpment on the ancient turnpike on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire county borders. There is a village public house, church and combined Church of England village primary school with neighbouring Cuddington taking children from the age of 4 to 11 years. Whilst enjoying a fine rural setting the village benefits from ease of access to the M40 (junction 7) approximately 9 miles and the Haddenham and Thame Parkway Station providing main line railway services to London Marylebone within 3.5 miles.
