Burrow Farm Estate is situated in the Chiltern Hills - some of the most beautiful rolling countryside within striking distance of Marlow, Henley-on-Thames and London. The main house was constructed over three different periods; the earliest being the Fifteenth Century Tudor Wing to the west connected to a Seventeenth Century brick and flint addition along with a later post war wing. The barn adjacent was built in the Fifteenth Century.

The current owners family purchased the farm in 1978 and it has been enjoyed as a family Estate ever since. This is the first time the Estate has been brought to the market in 43 years. Not only a working farm and sporting Estate, it very much doubles as a family home and exceptional property for large scale entertaining. The Estate can be accessed along three separate entrance drives. The new driveway, off the A4155 Marlow/Henley road, provides a most glorious approach to the Grade II listed Manor House adjacent to the impressive party barn. There are two further tree lined driveways entering from the west. The front door leads into the reception hall off which are wonderful entertaining rooms including the triple aspect drawing room, large dining room, family room and sitting room. There is also the large open plan kitchen and breakfast room and study beyond.

The house has excellent bedroom accommodation with a large principal bedroom suite, six further bedrooms, three of which are ensuite and two further bathrooms. Adjacent to Burrow Farm House is the impressive party barn which is Grade II listed and believed to date back to the 15th Century. Not only a striking building, it offers a huge entertaining space with the principal room extending to 65 feet. At the far end of the barn is a two bedroom annexe with open plan kitchen and sitting room.

The gardens are a particular feature at Burrow Farm with immaculate terraced lawns and formal gardens to the south east of the main House with wonderful views through the wooded valley below. To the north of the house is the enclosed swimming pool area with a further hedged garden beyond surrounding the tennis court, rose and kitchen gardens.

A short walk to the north of the principal house is Burrow Farm Cottages. An immaculate Grade II listed House with excellent reception rooms, eight bedrooms and four bathrooms. The property also boasts wonderful gardens to the north-east with immaculate topiary hedging, lawns, summer house, swimming pool with pool house. The property works brilliantly as a secondary house for family members, guest accommodation or has the potential to produce a significant rental income for the Estate. The Grade II listed Chiltern barn to the east of Burrow Farm Cottages is an amazing example of its type. There are further outbuildings which equally have huge potential for a number of uses.
