Enjoying an enviable position, right in the heart of this coveted Buckinghamshire village, nestled between the Church and the Old Rectory, historic Ivinghoe Manor truly is one of the area’s most admired properties.

Lived in and loved by the same owners for more than 60 years, this beautiful Grade II listed home has seen their children and grandchildren grow up here, but now the time has come for a new generation to make it their forever home.

The date of this iconic village property can be traced back to at least 1603, and probably earlier. Originally one house, it then became five terraced cottages around 1850, and was finally turned back into a house in 1907 by the local brewery family, the Roberts. This has led to a most interesting layout and a wonderful scope of possibilities to make it a home for the 21st Century, whilst never losing its incredible character and history.

Wandering from room to room, it is impossible not to be awe-struck by the plethora of period features; parquet flooring, wide Elm floorboards, open fires, window seats, wood panelling, leaded-light windows, wall and ceiling beams, ‘back’ stairs and ‘front’ stairs that join the landing together, and an impressive walk-in pantry as big as a room  –  they all combine to provide a wonderful ambience which is positively tangible from the moment you set foot into the large, welcoming hallway.

Outside, the space and charm continue, and the entire plot extends to around 1.25 acre.

The front lawn and flower beds are pretty as a picture, and the gravel driveway, providing parking for several vehicles, leads to the first of two garages. The large rear courtyard is useful for both additional parking and children’s bike-riding, and there are several original outbuildings.

The magic continues as steps, bordered by pretty flower beds, lead up to the garden, which just keeps on going, past the grassed tennis court, through a pergola, in and out of archways, behind which hide some enchanting topiary, a charming child’s swing and a beautiful, old summer house. Even when you reach the boundary, countryside stretches as far as the eye can see.
