Country house has stable yard, paddocks and a staff cottage

FINGEST HOUSE is a wonderful period country house which occupies an idyllic private setting in the heart of the Chilterns, on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border in Fingest.

The earliest part of the house is believed to date from 1790, with later additions over the centuries. The house is listed Grade II, believed to have been designed by the architect JS Gwilt. The hall and dining room are of particular note, mentioned within the listing.

The house is situated within the heart of the village, with glorious views over the gardens and of the rolling countryside and with the benefit of an unusually sunny and private aspect for a village house. The house has been subject to a sympathetic refurbishment over the last six years, and now provides a wonderful family home.

It is one of only a handful of important country houses within the area and therefore represents a rare opportunity.

The house is of rendered painted elevations under a clay tiled roof, approached from the village through large, electric timber gates, to a gravelled driveway and paved forecourt.
