Limes Cottage is located behind an electric gate in approximately eight acres of garden and paddocks, and runs adjacent to the River Misbourne.

The property has a wealth of character throughout including exposed timber beams to many of the walls and ceilings, working fireplaces and a large kitchen leading out to the wonderfully mature gardens. The character of this unique family home is teamed with the modern conveniences that modern living commands - some underfloor heating, integrated appliances, a Range cooker and double glazed doors.

As you enter the property, the entrance hall welcomes you into the impressive triple aspect kitchen and breakfast room. The bespoke kitchen units are matched with granite worktops and an oak centre island, giving just a taste of the high quality fittings that can be found throughout the house.

There are three further reception rooms on the ground floor offering good flexible accommodation, plus a utility room and a cloakroom.

Two separate staircases lead to the first floor. One side of the house enjoys an amazing vaulted ceiling master suite with exposed timbers, oak flooring and a fireplace, complete with a large dressing room (or bedroom five) and a dual aspect en-suite bathroom.

There are three further bedrooms and a large family bathroom which can be located from the second set of stairs.

Outside has the added space of outbuildings, a double garage, several stables, a storeroom/boiler house and a gardener's WC.

The front of the house offers a south facing sun terrace, whilst the back garden and paddock lead to the River Misbourne.

This grade II property is a significant find, steeped in history, in an unbeatable location.

LITTLE MISSENDEN is a quiet, underplayed village which has moulded its own identity, lying in the Chilterns AONB next to the River Misbourne.

Whilst close enough to Amersham to benefit from all it offers, Little Missenden is a pleasant distance away for those preferring quieter, more close-knit neighbourhoods.

Whilst enjoying such an enviable location, it surrenders nothing in terms of essential facilities. Two quintessential English pubs, a highly regarded infant school and the beautiful Saxon church of St John the Baptist contribute to the village's charm.

Add to this the renowned annual Little Festival of Music and Arts and you will understand why this picturesque area is beloved to its residents and is a desirable location for TV and for film companies; most notably for Midsomer Murders.

Little Missenden might appear small, quiet and modest but its real value and worth is still a well-kept secret.
