This exceptional property is situated in the heart of Chesham's Old Town conservation area. Thought to date from the late 13th or early 14th century, this Grade 2 listed cottage has been the subject of sympathetic renovation whilst adding the conveniences of modern living to the building’s historic fabric. The cottage takes its name from the likelihood that the timber frame comprised the solar, or private, wing of a medieval hall house, which is now adjacent in 46 Church Street. The front door leads from Church Street into the kitchen and dining area, which has attractive French limestone flooring and a range of floor and wall kitchen units with solid surface worktops. An internal lobby leads past a cloakroom, with wc and hand basin, to the reception room with views to the rear courtyard. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom, with a magnificent crown post roof, has double aspect to the front and rear and a bath tub as a focal feature. There is an en-suite shower room with wc and basin. Bedroom two has views to the rear and an en-suite shower room. Further stairs lead to an additional room in the loft space, which could be used as bedroom three or as a study. The house has areas of exposed brickwork and the original beams throughout. Additional features include under floor heating to the ground floor and to all bathrooms, gas central heating (with optional remote control) and Cat5e networking throughout. The property also comes with a 10 year structural warranty.
The property is situated under half a mile from Chesham town centre and the Metropolitan line station (with services to Baker Street & Aldgate). Chesham also offers an excellent range of shopping and recreational amenities, including Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. The Elgiva Theatre provides a diverse programme of films, theatre and other entertainment. Lowndes Park is nearby, providing lovely lakeside walks. Access to the A41 is five a half miles to the north and M25 Junction 18 is approximately 7 miles distant at Chorleywood, both allowing access to the national motorway network and international airports.
Immediately to the rear of the property there is a private paved space in the south facing communal courtyard for a container garden and exterior seating. There are two allocated parking spaces adjacent to this area.
