Formerly part of the Hambleden Estate, The Old Woodyard is an impressive barn conversion set in an attractive courtyard arranged around a central communal green. The property enjoys an enviable picturesque location between Mill End and Hambleden.

To the ground floor there is a fabulous entrance hall with a rise and turn staircase leading to the galleried landing. The open plan living space continues with steps leading up to the generously proportioned reception room which has a striking double height ceiling with exposed beams and trusses. This room is wonderfully light and airy and has an attractive brick focal fire place with wood burning stove and double French doors leading to the sunny rear paved terrace. The dining area has dual aspect windows and double doors opening onto the side terrace. The stylish farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room features a range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces and an island with further storage and oak worktop. There is a useful adjoining utility room with external side access. A study, elegant en suite double bedroom and a cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. The first floor comprises a further three charming double bedrooms alongside a well-appointed family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle.


The barn enjoys a private walled courtyard garden to the front as well as a delightful south-west facing terrace to the rear and private garden areas to the west and south of the house. The property benefits from two dedicated parking spaces and two Heritage barn car port spaces.

In addition there are wonderful communal gardens, allotments and a paddock shared by the five properties within the Yewden Farm development.


Hambleden occupies a delightful Chilterns setting, offering picturesque riding and walking trails. There is access to the River Thames via Hambleden Lock, and Hambleden Mill Marina is within walking distance for the budding sailor.
