This charming period cottage, with origins dating back to the early 1900's, is situated in a delightful rural location with superb views over neighbouring fields and countryside. Located in an AONB yet only 1.8 miles from Chesham town centre and station, this home offers excellent scope for extension and refurbishment (subject to the usual consents). Internally the property offers a wealth of original features, including a brick open fireplace in the dining room, picture rails and wooden flooring in the downstairs reception rooms. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance vestibule and cloakroom to the front with two equally proportioned reception rooms, both of which provide views of the gardens to the front and rear. The fitted kitchen has ample cupboard storage with space for appliances and can be accessed from either the dining room or hall, as well as giving external access to the rear garden. On the first floor are two generous double bedrooms; the triple aspect master bedroom has fully fitted wardrobes and views across the adjacent fields. The second double bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the original cast iron fireplace. Bedroom three is currently used as a study with built in desk and units but could easily revert to its original use. The family bathroom comprises a bath and separate shower unit plus basin and wc. There is a large walk-in storage/airing cupboard.
Field Cottage is situated in a most convenient location within two miles of Chesham town centre with its shops, station and leisure facilities.
