Situated down a private country lane, bordered by farmland, a wonderful country house set in beautiful gardens with a range of outbuildings a double garage and coach house studio.

Studley Barn was converted and extended nearly thirty years ago from a range of stables into an exceptionally charming house and retains character in abundance with repurposed original exposed timbers and a welcoming cottage feel throughout. More recently the house has had the windows and doors replaced. The accommodation follows a conventional layout with the principal reception rooms leading off an entrance hall. There is a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with a utility room beyond. There is a study and WC, and a dining room with French doors leading to the garden. The sitting room is a spacious room with a Jetmaster open fire as the centrepiece, exposed beams and French doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs there are five bedrooms. The main bedroom is a superb space with a triple aspect enjoying views over farmland to the north and the Chiltern Hills to the south. The ceiling has been vaulted to accentuate the feeling of space with exposed rafters and there is an en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house is approached via a private country lane owned by a local farmer, over which a footpath leads to Murcot. Within the eaves of the oak frame garage is a stunning studio with an entirely glazed gable end that frames a superb view over the adjacent farmland. Within the studio is a wood burning stove and a wet room. At the rear of the house is a set of four stables that provide excellent storage. The house sits within gardens of 0.6 acres with a rural backdrop, and large lawn with wild flower areas, a vegetable patch, a range of fruit trees and a treehouse. A driveway at the front of the house can accommodate a number of cars.
