Botany House is a very attractive village home originally built as one house in the 1860's and split into two in the middle part of the last century. The current owners purchased the house and then added Flint House in 2003, returning it to one large family home.

Situated high in the Chiltern Hills, the area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a vast network of footpaths and bridleways.

The house is approached across stone steps framed by mature yew bushes leading up to the front porch, which leads into the reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor.

Immediately to the right is the formal dining room with a large bay window, open fireplace original high skirting boards, ornate ceiling rose and French doors opening to the garden. The library/reception room also has an open fireplace and fitted shelving with integrated lighting.

From the library/reception room there is access to the stunning orangery/kitchen, constructed by David Salisbury in 2017. This is the heart of this family home with a glass vaulted ceiling and plenty of space to entertain. The kitchen is fitted with beautiful cabinetry with composite stone worktops and integrated Siemens appliances including an induction hob, two ovens and warming drawers. There is a pull-out larder, a double butlers sink with a Perrin and Rowe boiling water tap and a dishwasher, along with the original bread oven (which now houses a fitted cupboard with the restored bread oven door) which was used to bake the bread for the local village.

There is a large central island with breakfast bar seating, a wine fridge, along with a pop-up unit providing mains and usb power. Double doors and windows to each side open out to the patio. Off the kitchen is the laundry/utility room with space for white goods, additional cupboards and a Rayburn. There is underfloor heating throughout the kitchen/orangery, laundry, library and w.c.

The inner hall leads to the sitting room which has two large sash windows with lovely views across Wheeler End Common and an open fireplace. A door leads through to the fifth bedroom/office which also has a bay window looking over the common and a fireplace. An external door leads out to the car-port/bakers yard to the rear of the house. Off the inner hall is a newly fitted cloakroom and boiler room beyond and under the stairs in the main reception hall, a brick staircase gives access to a substantial dry-lined cellar, with a second unlined cellar currently accessed from outside.

From the reception hall the original staircase leads to the first floor landing with an airing cupboard and storage. To the front of the house, above the porch is an enclosed gallery, ideal as a study area.

The principal bedroom has an open fireplace and windows overlooking the countryside. There are four further double bedrooms and two recently refurbished family bathrooms, one with a wet room and the other with a large double-ended Bette bath and walk-in shower.

A first floor store room is accessed via the stairs from the car-port and this offers potential to create a further bedroom, annexe accommodation or an en suite dressing room and a bathroom for the principal bedroom.

All the rooms in the house have beautiful high ceilings. The loft is fully insulated and a brand new heat-pump system fitted in 2020 offering a zero-carbon footprint, significantly reducing heating costs. This is eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive Payments until 2027, currently circa £400 per quarter and index linked.

The gravel driveway has parking for a number of cars and is bordered by brick and flint walls. Steps go up the garden and a pathway leads to the front door. An iron pedestrian gate set into the garden wall provides alternative access.

The garden faces south-west and is mainly laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub beds and borders. To the rear of the orangery/kitchen is a courtyard which leads to the car-port, upstairs storage and an outbuilding.
