From the agent: "This sublime five-bedroom single-story house, with a separate double garage, is situated on a tranquil plot of approximately one acre, on a no-through road near Stoke Poges on the Buckinghamshire and Berkshire border. Built in the 1950s to replicate the design of the original owners’ property in Malibu, California, the house has been extended and refurbished to an exacting standard by the current owners and now measures over 4,000 square feet internally."

The home presents a handsome facade of black-painted cedar.

Floor-to-ceiling glazing stretches across one of the living rooms, providing easy access to the cedar deck.

The dining room sits near the main entrance, overlooking the driveway, lawn, and gardens.

The principal bath features a large glass shower and an oversized soaking tub.

Wood beams stretch across the ceiling, complementing the refinished hardwood floors.

A recently renewed hardwood deck wraps the rear of the house, offering an idyllic sun-shielded dining area beyond the kitchen.
