The White Brothers were reputable builders in their day, constructing many houses in High Wycombe in the 1920s. This home, given the name "Aynho", was built for one of the brothers and has several additions made to it during the construction making the property unique in its time. The front door opens into an entrance lobby with the understairs storage cupboard and a stunning, lead-lined, stained glass door that opens into the hallway with its winding oak staircase leading to the first floor. There is a dining room with lead-lined bay windows with dual patio doors that open onto the rear garden, and sliding doors opening into the lounge with its bay windows to front. A third reception room provides options for use as a family room, playroom, or study and has windows to front aspect and adjacent to this off the hallway is the guest cloak room. Over-looking the rear garden is the kitchen which is functional comprising a range of base and eye level storage units, sink and drainer, free standing appliances, and a boiler which was installed in 2016. There is back door which opens into a lean-to/conservatory providing access to the garden. On the first floor are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a separate WC. Externally, to the front of the house is a carriage driveway with parking for numerous vehicles, and security gates providing access to further parking and the garage. The rear garden has a patio off the back of the house, with two separate lawn areas which are divided by a mature hedge. The gardens with a shed and workshop have been expertly maintained over the years with a wide array of planting.
West Wycombe Road is one of the main routes into the centre of High Wycombe and therefore the public transport links are frequent into the town centre with its mainline railway station that has fast trains to London Marylebone in under half an hour. The town benefits from a wide range of retail shopping, leisure and hospitality outlets to suit everyone's needs, including the Eden Centre, the excellent Swan Theatre and the new sports centre at Handy Cross. To the north of the house is the popular Chiltern village of Downley; to the west is the famous Golden Ball and Wycombe Caves, with the village of West Wycombe just beyond. High Wycombe has always drawn people from far and wide who look to take advantage of its excellent commuting opportunities by rail as mentioned and by road with both Junctions 3 & 4 of the M40 on its doorstep. Schooling is another major factor with some outstanding primary schools and the highly regarded Wycombe High School for girls, the RGS and John Hampden Grammar School for boys.
