About The Owner

We bought this property and the nearby thatched cottage where we live, in 1985 when it was virtually derelict. For the first year my husband and I and our two daughters shared one upstairs room as a bedroom and the downstairs kitchen as the only usable rooms in the house as the remainder were uninhabitable.

Over the years we have gradually renovated, repaired and renewed the properties and maintained, designed and planted over 400 trees in the extensive gardens. We are now nearing retirement and hope that by encouraging people to stay in The Stables, the funding generated will allow us to stay within the property for longer.

Why The Owner chose Aylesbury Vale District

This property has been a lifetime's work. We have lived here fore 32 years and know all the nooks and crannies of the buildings as we have renovated and repaired them completely during this time.

The Thatch, next door to The Stables, is where we live and dates back to the 16th century. It is listed as a Grade II building by English Heritage as being of significant historical interest. Consequently there are strict restrictions placed by the local authority on any modifications, repairs or renewals to the building and the thatched roof has be maintained in keeping with the local style of thatch.

The Stables, although old, is not as historic as The Thatch dating back approximately 200 years and as far as we know it did use to be the stables for the horses of the people who lived in

The Thatch.

What makes this house unique

The Stables, although situated in a small village, the village itself is located very close to major amenities and transport links so you have the benefit of living in a historic building within a rural environment but on the edge of modern society.
