A most desirable detached residence presented in good order, whilst offering excellent potential for modernisation, refurbishment and enlargement (subject to the usual consents). The house was originally constructed in the 1930's and is in a tranquil setting yet convenient for all the local amenities of Amersham. Entered by the front door, with canopy over, which leads into the bright and welcoming entrance hall. From here, the spacious sitting room has a double aspect including a pretty bay window with seating and through access to a study and cloakroom with WC and hand basin beyond. This area has independent access to the front of the house so could be useful as a consulting room. From the hall, the dining room also has double aspect bay windows. The kitchen/breakfast room has rear access via one of two utility rooms. A further downstairs cloakroom with hand basin and WC and hall cupboard complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs, the master bedroom with windows to front and rear has an en suite bathroom. Three further double bedrooms share the family bathroom and separate WC. There is an airing cupboard and access to the loft.
'Kelso' is situated in one of the most sought after residential roads in Amersham on the Hill, which is itself located within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Devonshire Avenue is highly desirable because of its close proximity to both town amenities and the Park and countryside beyond. The Metropolitan/Chiltern line station and the centre of Amersham on the Hill is about half a mile’s walk away, providing the London commuter or visitor with an efficient service into Baker Street or London Marylebone. The town has a comprehensive selection of high street shops including Marks & Spencer and Waitrose food halls. Hervines Park at the end of the road is a special place with over 28.5 acres, including 12 acres of preserved woodland, making it ideal for dog walking, as well as spectating local cricket or football matches. Meanwhile, the historic Amersham Old Town is only a mile down the hill, with its wide sweeping High Street, half timbered buildings, picturesque period cottages and a selection of bars, restaurants and clothing shops.
The house is set centrally in the mature and well maintained garden of half an acre. Approached over a pavement driveway, there is access to the double garage with parking for several vehicles. Behind the garage is a workshop with gardener's WC. There is also a pretty summer house. A delightful selection of trees and shrubs and wide lawn areas make the garden a haven, well screened by hedging for privacy.
