This deceptively spacious Grade II listed lodge was built in 1711 and has been sympathetically extended and updated by the current owner to create a charming and practical detached home. Entered under an impressive portico, the front door has the original fanlight above. The entrance hall has a double bedroom to one side and a door to the formal reception room on the other. This is the original part of the house and has retained many period features. A second double bedroom is reached from the dining area. Beyond, an internal lobby has a storage cupboard and the family bathroom to one side. The bathroom, refitted in 2013, provides an over bath shower and white suite. There is a deep cupboard housing laundry appliances and storage space. The bright and airy modern kitchen with underfloor heating, has an ample range of matte cream colour fitted units incorporating a ceramic sink, including a waste disposal unit, dishwasher, electric hob and double oven with extractor, and space for a fridge freezer. There are doors to the rear courtyard and also to the parking area from an open plan hall area which leads directly into the cosy informal reception area. There are steps up to the principal bedroom, which is a generous size, with a range of mirrored wardrobes along one wall, fitted in 2017. An ensuite bathroom has an over bath shower, basin and wc plus a heated towel rail and views out to the patio courtyard.
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.
There is one parking space and a further area where the owner has the right to park. There is also a storage shed for bins. At the rear of the property, a delightful secluded, walled, part cobbled and part flagstone, courtyard is on two levels with steps through a brick archway between. There is access from both the kitchen and the small landing through glazed doors to the courtyard. A summer house and a shed provide additional storage.
