A pretty four bedroom Edwardian house with some later extensions directly overlooking the very beautiful and unspoilt Bucklebury Common. Set in a peaceful no through lane within an area noted to be of outstanding rural beauty.

The property enjoys some fine views across its grounds to the rear to wooded boundaries and across to Bucklebury Common at the front.
