This unique family home, situated in Grendon Underwood, is ideal for a growing family. It was lovingly converted by its present owners, who designed it for modern living.

Situated on a 1/3 acre plot with beautiful countryside views, this freehold property benefits from 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, eco-friendly double-glazed windows, oak and stone flooring, double garage and driveway and an eco-friendly air source heat pump which provides the underfloor heating and hot water.


The reception rooms are of a grand scale. The 8.4m long living room is open to the oak vaulted ceiling, and benefits from full height picture windows, providing a light, airy and highly flexible living area.

The kitchen/diner is nearly 10m long and benefits from an impressive range of high gloss floor and wall units, plus a large island, with granite work surfaces. A sweeping wall of full height double doors and windows provide an idyllic view to the countryside and hill beyond. Fitted with ceiling speakers and big enough for a dance floor it is the perfect party kitchen.

The snug is also open to the oak vaulted ceiling, providing a cosy retreat, perfect for watching TV.

The large upstairs study has a minstrel gallery aspect looking over the living room, creating a beautiful working space.

The utility room provides additional storage and a large butlers sink, along with a separate laundry room.

The Master Suite comprises a large bedroom with a high sloping ceiling, a dressing area with mirrored wardrobes and an ensuite shower room.

2 of the other 3 bedrooms also benefit from their own ensuite, one with a shower room, one with a bathroom.


One of 3 houses in a small cul de sac, there is parking for 4 cars plus a double garage. A sloping path up to the front door makes for easy access. To the back of the house is a large sweeping area of decking, accessible on a level from the kitchen and the snug. There is also a large rainbow sandstone patio, perfect for a BBQ.

The large garden gently slopes down to a gate, which backs onto a farmyard. Hedges on each side provide plenty of privacy. The garden is landscaped, with plenty of shrubs and trees around the edges but is mainly laid to lawn.


Cartref Barn is in the heart of Grendon Underwood, which is a small, friendly, rural village, with a highly respected Primary School, a pub, a village shop and a village hall. It is in catchment for all of the excellent Aylesbury Grammar Schools as well as the Outstanding Waddesdon C of E Secondary School.
