Look at that garden! 3.5 acres of verdant paddocks AND it's next door to Ashfold School. Niiiice. Wanna guess the price?!
Fancy yourself as a latter day Barbara from The Good Life? Then this Property Flirt is for you. There’s ample allotment space to grow wonky courgettes that your children will refuse to eat at this delicious house in Dorton, with its whopping 3.5 acres of gardens and paddocks.
The five-bedroom home has – deep breath – formal gardens, a huge vegetable garden, an orchard that’ll send the local WI jam-makers wild with jealousy, a wilderness section (my feral kids would be banished to that bit), an area for bee-keeping, those paddocks which are perfect if your little darling wants a pony AND a barn for your ride-on mower – because pushing a normal mower around this expanse would be like painting the Forth Bridge. It’s also got two outbuildings, with home office or granny flat potential.
What else? The interiors might not be to your taste, but they’re immaculate and it’s in the heart of a pretty, tranquil Bucks village and on the doorstep of Ashfold School, one of the top prep schools in the area.
So, fellow nosey parkers – and budding Barbaras – how much do you think it’s on for then? Find out here, while I adjourn to a sun-lounger and supervise the crack-team of gardeners.
