Constructed of handsome stuccoed elevations under a pitched slate roof, Thorne Barton Hall is an elegant family home of Victorian origins. More recently, a substantial garage wing has been added with further accommodation above.
Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first floor. Of particular note is the drawing room which has beautiful proportions and like all the principal reception rooms, good high ceilings. The drawing room is centred on an attractive open fireplace and enjoys outstanding views over the gardens, grounds and the Chiltern Hills beyond.
On the first floor the bedrooms are all light and airy. There is currently a separate, self-contained flat which could be incorporated back into the principal accommodation, if required. The garage extension has provided an extensively large first floor room currently used for storage but suitable for a full sized snooker table.
Outside, the gardens and grounds provide a charming, tranquil setting studded with a selection of specimen deciduous and evergreen trees. An ornamental pond provides an attractive focal point, beyond which is the ’all-weather’ tennis court.
To the rear and side of the house is a further area of well-maintained lawn with a magnificent copper beech tree, together with the swimming pool set in a paved surround.
There is a range of timber clad outbuildings providing useful storage for garden machinery situated to the south of the house with a concrete hard standing.
The gravelled driveway leads to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house.
