A substantial period farmhouse and former cow shed requiring extensive refurbishment works, located within the heart of a sought after village close to the Market Town of Buckingham.

Dating back to 1677, this imposing and substantial period Manor Farmhouse and the attached former cow shed offers a tremendous opportunity to create a magnificent family home, with a secluded garden to the rear. The house offers a wealth of character with accommodation over three floors and is in a very poor condition, which as a consequence a section 54 Urgent Works notice has been served by the Local Authority. A scaffold with weatherproof sheeting has been erected to provide temporary protection and support to part of the building and tiles have been removed from a section of roof and stored. The scaffold is included as part of the sale and will become the property of the new owner, it is not leased.



Ground Floor Accommodation:

Entrance hall, sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, dining room, study, galley kitchen, scullery/original kitchen and bathroom.

First Floor Accommodation:

Landing, four bedrooms and stairs to the loft.


The loft is divided into three rooms without windows.

Former Cow Shed:

This long single storey building is attached to the side of the house with direct access into it. In the recent past it has been used as an engineering workshop.


To the front of the building is the old cattle water trough and to the side a driveway leads to the rear of the property where there is an area of hardstanding in front of the workshop/former cow shed and an enclosed rear garden with a variety of trees and shrubs that is somewhat overgrown.


The building is Grade II listed. Listing Number: 1205840.

Auctioneers' Note:

Parts of the building are deemed to be unsafe, therefore these areas will not be available for inspection by viewers and children will NOT be allowed access to any part of the property.
