This historic apartment has been refurbished to a high standard and is perfect for those looking to retire or simply for a quieter life thanks to its 10 acres of landscaped communal gardens.
Why buy this home?
Wavendon House is steeped in history dating back to the 18th Century and was believed to be designed by Richard Woods who was well known in his day, working for many aristocratic clients. It derives from a house known as the Grange, that in turn had been a manor of the medieval Woburn Abbey.
Wavendon was used as an outstation of Bletchley Park during the Second World War, both in providing residential accommodation for many of the WRNS force who worked there, and in housing number of the Bombes, the decoding/computing machines that were an essential part of Bletchley Park’s work.
In 1961 the house and its ancillary buildings were converted for use as a residential special school, the main house was extended and new buildings were constructed in the vicinity. All have since been converted to domestic use and some further residential buildings and garages have been added within the grounds.
This specific apartment is located on the first floor and has been lovingly refurbished making it in ‘turnkey’ condition.
The ensuite has been removed from the master bedroom instead creating a more useful dressing room, meaning the room can benefit from a larger bed. The second bedroom is a comfortable double, meaning it can also be used as a study or second reception room like how the current owners are utilising it.
The bathroom is a thing of beauty with a luxury shower unit installed and large vanity units which complement the kitchen.
The kitchen itself has integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The under counter lighting shows off the mosaic pattern on the splashback tiles perfectly.
The living space is a comfortable size and has dual aspect views over the greenery surrounding the apartment.
The 10 acres of landscaped communal grounds includes a stunning re-build walled garden, large lake and plenty of seating areas. Residents are permitted to hold event with a couple of hundred of guests on the grounds at no charge.
Parking is provided by ample communal spaces in front of the apartment as well as a garage with light and power – ideal for classic car enthusiasts.
