Filgrave is a Hamlet situated approximately 2 miles north of Newport Pagnell with its origins dating back to the Medieval Times. Now situated on the outskirts of the New City of Milton Keynes it benefits from the close proximity to all day to day amenities and commuter links whilst maintaining its peaceful rural setting and tranquillity. 'The Gables' was originally built as a school house in 1856 by William (Praed) Tyringham as part of his modernisation of the village at the time. Also used for church services it continued to be a school until approximately 1900 when it closed and became two houses, 'The Gables' & 'Gables Cottage' as it is today. Situated on the margins of the hamlet, 'The Gables' is set back in an elevated position from the road and mainly surrounded by open fields, bridlepaths and country walks where birds and local wildlife can be enjoyed. The original part of the house was constructed from local stone under clay tiles and still retains the Victorian cast iron cross patterned glazed windows, which on the ground floor are set into delightful stone mullions. Having been much improved by the current and previous owners 'The Gables' now offers in excess of 1,600 sqft of flexible family accommodation set over two floors and with the added benefit of a separate self-contained annexe. Situated on a fully enclosed plot approaching 0.20 of an acres, the mature gardens are situated to both the eastern and southern flanks of the property and offer a high degree of privacy. There are numerous paved areas throughout the garden and fine specimen planting which includes 3 apple, two plum and 1 each fig and apricot trees. A double garage, which is well screened from the property is approached by a double width driveway providing ample parking and storage for the property. Agents Note: Mains Services to the property are Electricity, Water and Telephone with Full Fibre connection. Although Filgrave has mains sewerage this does not extend to 'The Gables' or 'Gables Cottage', these two properties share a modern treatment plant that was recently installed to replace the original septic tank. We are informed that this is cheaper to maintain than annual Anglian Water charges would be. An internal inspection is most highly recommended.
