‘Georgian Regency’ country house to rent for £20,000 per month in a Buckinghamshire village voted ‘the best in England’
Built circa 1810 on the site of a medieval manor house where Oliver Cromwell allegedly stayed in 1642, ‘The Stone’ at Pheasant Hill, Chalfont St. Giles in Buckinghamshire is a classically proportioned three bay, yellow stock brick country house.
Dominated by a central Doric porch and of three bays, this Grade II listed, 10,025 square house features accommodation over four floors that includes 6 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It has a Marston and Laringer orangery, a professional state of the art 4K 3D ‘viewing theatre,’ two wine stores and two kitchens that would make Marco Pierre White jealous even.
Outside, aside from a 45-foot long heated swimming pool, there is a barbeque area with a wood fired pizza oven and within the 4.5 acre plot also there are formal gardens, a walled garden and woodland areas.
Converted into a maternity home during or just after the Second World War, ‘The Stone’ subsequently was divided into seven flats in the 1970s. It was sold in October 2001 for £1.65 million ($2.11 million, €1.91 million or درهم7.74 million) and reverted back to a single family residence.
Agents Knight Frank seek £20,000 per month ($25,600, €23,200 or درهم93,900 per month) for the property on a furnished or unfurnished basis. They describe it as being 20 minutes from Heathrow and 20 minutes by train from Central London.
