Gemma thinks:
Victorian charm wrapped up in a characterful cottage.

Victorian cottage? Tick. Village location? Oh yes. Private garden? Absolutely. 8 Daisy Cottages in Lane End, Buckinghamshire has much to shout about.

Gemma loves:
The fantastic village location within easy reach of Marlow and some great schools.

This period end of terrace has been newly refurbished and, with no upward chain, you could be in your new home in next to no time. Situated on a quiet lane in the Chilterns, yet well connected and just down the road from well-heeled Marlow, the location is mighty fine too.

Through the front door you are greeted by a small porch leading to the front room. An ornamental fireplace provides a lovely focal point in the cosy living room, which offers a relaxing retreat by day and sophisticated sanctuary by night.

You could equally choose to use this space as a dining room for casual suppers and occasions alike, or a home office (broadband, as you might expect, is very good). The generous proportions make it wonderfully versatile. Close the glazed door to define the two spaces, or leave open to blend them seamlessly together.

A log burner and brick hearth feature in the open plan dining kitchen, keeping the heart of the home toasty on even the chilliest of days. You’ll also find ample room for a host of household appliances. Light streams in through the window, and access to the garden is easy through the side door.

An open staircase leads to the first floor bedrooms, both with wooden flooring underfoot. The principal double bedroom is en suite, featuring metro tiling, and a modern suite including shower and bath, for quick starts and long soaks.

There’s an additional double bedroom at the front and, like the principal bedroom, it makes organisation easy with fitted wardrobes. There’s also a roomy loft for further storage.

Outside, entertain family and friends in the long garden with al fresco food and drinks. Being an end of terrace, there’s the added benefit of room at the side of the home too. And, at the end of the garden, there’s a sheltered space, which could be altered to create an outdoor seating area, or even an oh-so-cool garden room.

Lane End

Well connected

Lane End

Lane End is one of Buckinghamshire’s loveliest villages, surrounded by the rolling Chiltern Hills – an Area of Natural Beauty – offering picturesque landscapes within a rural setting. Despite its countryside location, it’s still really well connected. Well-heeled Marlow is around 4 miles away, with its bustling High Street of boutique shops and Michelin-starred restaurants.

High Wycombe is where you’ll find all the well-known stores, and its train station provides good links to London and the rest of the railway network. Although it’s hiking and cycling heaven with the beautiful woodlands, hills and scenic trails, the M40 is also close by.

In the village itself, there’s a range of amenities including a convenience store for household essentials, church, post office and local shops. Stop off at the Grouse and Ale after a Sunday walk for good food and drink, where even four legged friends are catered for with treats and fresh water bowls.

A close-knit community feel exudes from the village. Lane End plays host to a variety of community events and activities throughout the year, and the Village Hall is at the hub of life here.

When it comes to the little ones, Lane End Primary School is in the village, and there’s a good choice of secondary options in Marlow and the vicinity, including grammar schools.
