Sherington is exactly what you’ll see when picturing the perfect place to live, and Willow House is a traditional family home set right in the heart of the village, among an amazing community.
This idyllic location is encompassed by countryside, and there’s no Co-op or Costa here! Squirrel Stores stocks fresh produce and serves delicious coffee, and The White Hart pub hosts quiz nights, a beer and sausage fair, craft markets and art classes. Laud’s Church and the village hall have family-friendly calendars, and there’s a football club and bowls team for those who want to get involved. For children, there’s a primary school in the village, and a bus service to private schooling in Bedford and Northampton.
This is a fantastic place to raise a family. It’s a safe base for children to come and go with ease, and proximity to centres such as Olney and Newport Pagnell is convenient for getting out and about. Milton Keynes is just 15 minutes away by car for an endless array of amenities, and both Bedford and Milton Keynes stations have direct services into London. Sherington is equidistant between Oxford and Cambridge, and The Knoll is where they ‘buried the hatchet’ in 1953 after intense rivalry between the universities.
Built in the very late 1960s and in its current ownership since 2000, the space works exceptionally well for a growing family, and a loft conversion 15 years ago provides teenagers with of privacy to the top floor. The master suite spans the full depth of the footprint, consisting of the bedroom, dressing room and en suite shower room.
The living space consists of three sizeable and flexible reception rooms, and the kitchen is generous enough to have a breakfast area or an island. The layout flows well from room to room, and could be reconfigured to open up if preferred (stp). The owners have converted the back of the garage into a utility room to keep laundry and gardening supplies from the main accommodation.
Great effort has been put into the garden over the years. The mature garden has varied planting, apple and plum trees, and tall trees that screen the plot. Sitting out here, it’s a quiet harmony of bees buzzing in the lavender, birds singing in the trees and bells ringing out from the church.
To the front is the garage and the multi-car driveway. The position of the property is steps from the lychgate, and the front rooms, especially the bedrooms, have wonderful outlooks over the church. Church End is a no through road, and it’s really only dogwalkers who pass on their way to open fields. We think seating in the front garden would make for the ideal spot to watch the sunset as it bathes the house in colour. Bliss.
