Cooking with a view – #GBBO heaven at the foot of the Chiltern Hills

Posted 23 September 2015 by Keith Osborne

Wye Dene is a collection of highly desirable New England-style houses set against the backdrop of the Chiltern Hills in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire – and the show home kitchen will impress even the most discerning Great British Bake Off (#GBBO) fan.

The Westside is a phase of 26 luxuriously appointed houses at an exclusive position on the scheme, separated from the main development by a tranquil back stream. A number of properties offer a pleasant waterside location while graceful tree-lined boulevards, footpaths and cycle paths and a children’s play area on the development further enhance the appeal for families.

‘The Horton’ is a brand new show home showcasing the striking New England design with a unique weatherboarded façade and offers nearly 200 sqm of living space. Perfectly designed to accommodate the keen cooks in the family, ‘The Horton’ offers a generous sense of space and plenty of room to manoeuvre in the kitchen and dining room, with an open-plan layout and garden views to be enjoyed while whipping up a storm.

The individually designed, fully fitted Alno kitchen will delight both amateur bakers and accomplished chefs alike. Expansive workspace provides the perfect place to prepare a feast on either granite or Silestone surfaces.  Benefiting from plentiful storage, this delightful kitchen offers numerous cupboards and soft-closing drawers, including deep pan drawers suitable for housing cooking dishes and pans, plus a Le Mans corner storage unit for keeping ingredients in order.

High-quality integrated Bosch appliances include a 5 zone induction hob, a double oven, a combination microwave oven, and a full height fridge/freezer. Plus, an integrated wine cooler ensures beverages can be stored at the optimum temperature before the meal is served.

This superbly appointed kitchen leads onto a spacious dining area which overlooks the garden, with bi-fold doors opening onto a spacious patio area, perfect for alfresco dinner parties.

With underfloor heating throughout the ground floors, ceramic tiled flooring to the kitchen/dining areas, hallways and bathrooms, and fitted carpets to the living rooms, landings and all bedrooms, the home has a luxurious finish that is sure to impress any guest.

Downstairs, bright and spacious living rooms are flooded with natural light – with a large bay window in the living room and large feature windows in the open-plan family room. There is also a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. Guests can also make use of designated off-street parking in addition to a private garage.

Five bedrooms, two with en suites and two main bathrooms, are spread across the upper two floors. 

Built by award-winning developer, Berkeley Homes (Western), this highly sought-after development is just a short walk from the town centre, with a train journey of just 29 minutes into the capital city.

Prices at Wye Dene start from £455,000.
