Lime Tree House is a stunning Grade II Listed, Georgian fronted house, which is being sold with planning consent in place to completely renovate and modernise this important dwelling. Located in Wendover, the property is a short walk from the train station with fast trains to London Marylebone in 46 minutes.
The 18th Century Georgian façade was added on to an earlier house, as was often the way when homeowners wanted to gentrify their properties. The striking symmetrical façade has Venetian windows and a heavy six
panelled door, making this arguably the prettiest house in Wendover.
As would be expected with the period, there are wonderful features internally including the beautifully panelled rooms, window shutters and intricate carved fireplaces. The dining room, which we believe forms part of the original house, also features a deep inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven. The kitchen, which was fitted by the previous owners,
is a bespoke and hard wood built kitchen by Mark Wilkinson.
As it currently stands, there are six bedrooms in the main house and a self-contained one-bedroom annexe. There is also garaging, car ports and a stunning walled garden of about 0.55 acres.
Lime Tree House, whilst structurally sound, is in need of restoration and
modernising. The current owners have sought listed planning consent for a full refurbishment with extensions to include the creation of a large open plan vaulted kitchen, with a modern glass link between the main house, garages and annexe. The end result will be one of the finest period houses in Buckinghamshire, with beautifully juxtaposing modern elements.
Planning consent was granted on 16th November 2020, application number 20/03880/ALB.
It is worth noting that should the current plans not be to a buyer’s requirements, changes could be made, subject to further planning applications.
