Property summary

A delightful cottage in the sought-after village of Askett, this period home was constructed in the mid- 1700s by William Hopcroft, a carpenter and later orchardist to whom a number of village properties are attributed.

Modernized over the years to offer the perfect blend of period charm, character, and modern convenience, the cottage retains many original features including an inglenook fireplace, 18th-century wall painting, and extensive beams. A well was added in the early 1900s. More recent additions include newly leveled upstairs flooring, double glazing, enhanced fireproofing, and electrical improvements. Swish Fibre has laid cables supporting a symmetrical gigabit connection.

Accommodation includes a generous lounge/dining area on the ground floor, alongside a bijou but a capable kitchen with bespoke, hand-made cabinetry, and a garden room to the rear doubling as a discreet utility area. Ample storage is provided through four built-in cupboards.

Upstairs includes, a large bedroom and generously proportioned bathroom, again featuring bespoke, hand-made cabinetry and doors. A loft space provides further storage potential, or the opportunity to create a vaulted ceiling.

Outside to the rear is a small, easy-to-maintain south-west facing garden with a patio and raised beds. Generous frontage includes a car-port, space for a seccond vehicle, wood or bin storage, and a substantial shed. Access is via a shared gravel drive.

This quaint cottage is in the middle of three lovely cottages in the village of Askett, just outside the pretty market town of Princes Risborough.

The village itself is situated on the edge of the Chiltern Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a corresponding range of scenic walks readily available. The village enjoys a public house, with a number of other pubs and well-regarded restaurants within walking distance.

Monks Risborough station is a 5-10 minute walk and provides direct services to London and Aylesbury, nearby Princes Risborough offers faster services to London and Birmingham. Easy road access to the M40, M25, and Heathrow airport.

Princes Risborough offers a Tesco and M&S Simply Food alongside a good range of local shops and cafés, while Aylesbury includes cinemas and a Waitrose.
