A FINE PERIOD RESIDENCE IN A PROMINENT VILLAGE LOCATION AND IDEALLY PLACED FOR NEARBY WOBURN VILLAGE, THE CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF CLUB AND EXCELLENT COMMUTER LINKS TO THE CAPITAL. Court House is a Grade II listed historical residence with records dating from 1443 and believed to have at one time been used as the County Assize Court. The front elevation was refaced in the nineteenth century in the Jacobean style resulting in the impressive faade which remains today. The stone mullioned windows, gables and large chimney stack give it a manorial appearance and this period feel continues inside with original fireplaces, seventeenth century studded doors and exposed timbers. This is further enhanced with individual and well-proportioned reception rooms with generous ceiling heights allowing lots of natural light and perfect for modern living and entertaining. Careful modernisation has included a refitted kitchen with gas fired AGA and refitted bath and shower room suites with period style sanitaryware. The layout is versatile having two staircases and a ground floor shower room which offers the potential to provide a self-contained annex or the much in demand home office. The gated grounds are secluded with a terraced patio and courtyard and lawns with the original coach house and stables providing covered parking and further potential for conversion to ancillary accommodation. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the Court Houses unique qualities and lifestyle opportunity on offer. ACCOMMODATION A central porch with a flagstone floor leads to the drawing room and dining room. The drawing room has a fine Portland stone style inglenook fireplace with an inset stove, period panelling and exposed floorboards and dual aspect windows. A similarly well-proportioned dining room is ideal for entertaining with an inglenook fireplace and hearth and a door leads down to a cellar. Flowing from here the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has an impressive gas fired Aga which has an additional electric oven to one side, all set into an over mantle housing with a hanging rail. The units are finished in a modern style with work surfaces and inset sink unit with integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. A rear hall provides access to the garden and a useful area for outdoor coats, shoes and wellies etc. At the front of the house, a study has a staircase which rises to the fourth bedroom. From the kitchen, the utility room has a second sink unit with space for a washing machine and a pulley hanging clothes airer. A cupboard houses an Ideal gas fired boiler and hot water cylinder. A further rear hall serves as an independent entrance to a ground floor shower room and a studio/family room offering a self-contained annexe or office suite.
