Set in an unrivalled position within the Chess valley and affording stunning views, a rare opportunity to acquire a charming Grade II listed cottage, dating back to Elizabethan times. This attractive home boasts luxurious and flexible living accommodation, having been thoughtfully restored by the current owners and enjoys a picturesque semi-rural lifestyle with the convenience of nearby transport links for the commuter. The property is believed to have been built as a steward's house circa 1640 and over the course of time has evolved into a fabulous family home of great character. Original internal features include decorative leaded light windows, exposed wall and ceiling beams, ornate open fireplaces and wall pargeting.
The internal living accommodation features a large drawing room, which opens into a part brick and wood conservatory with stunning open views. The spacious country-style kitchen with terracotta floor is divided into three areas including a cooking area with oil-fired Aga, dining area and cinema room, combining modern luxuries with period character hallmarks. The first floor is set across two levels, creating interest, and includes a magnificent bathroom with free-standing roll top bath, wood panelling and an original feature fireplace.
Latimer village is set out around a triangular green and includes the impressive Latimer House, built in 1830. Whilst enjoying a peaceful semi-rural setting, the property is ideally located for the larger centres of Little Chalfont (1.5 miles), Amersham (3.6 miles) and Chesham (4.4 miles), which have Metropolitan/Chiltern line stations for the London commuter. The M25 and its connections with the general motorway network and airports is accessible at junction 18, Chorleywood (3.5miles). The area is renowned for its excellent educational facilities including Chenies School; a traditional combined village school from the ages of 4-11.
