This three bedroom semi-detached house is in a convenient and popular location between Amersham on the Hill and Old Amersham with easy access to local facilities and schools. Requiring updating, it has great potential to extend, subject to planning permission, to create a spacious and versatile family home. Steps lead up to the enclosed porch and through an obscure glazed front door into the entrance hall. On the left, the sitting room currently has a feature fireplace and the original quarry tiled window sill with an arch to the dining room beyond. From here, a door gives access into a lean-to conservatory at the rear. The kitchen has a range of light colour wall and base units with laminate surfaces units, an electric cooker and a wall mounted Vaillant gas boiler. A door leads into the study beyond, which in turn has doors to the rear patio area and another to steps down into the integral garage. Stairs rise to the landing where there are two double bedrooms, plus a single, all with built in cupboards. The front bedrooms have far reaching views to farmland and woods in the distance. There is a shower with wash basin and an adjacent separate WC. An airing cupboard with a hot water cylinder and a hatch to the loft are both accessed from the landing. The house benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.
Situated in a sought-after location, the house is convenient for the varied shops, amenities and the station at Amersham on the Hill, just under a mile away. Old Amersham, with its boutique shopping and many pubs and restaurants, and also a Tesco superstore, is also one mile away. There is a convenient 'shortcut' to the train station at Amersham (TFL Zone 9) which provides Metropolitan Line links to Baker Street and the City, and also Chiltern Line trains to London Marylebone. Amersham is located approx. 7 miles from the M25 junction 18 at Chorleywood and approx. 6 miles from the M40 junction 2 at Beaconsfield. The property also falls within the catchment of several leading grammar schools; including Dr Challoner's Grammar (for boys, co-ed 6th form), Dr Challoner's High (for girls) and Chesham Grammar (mixed). There is also a good selection of junior and private schools locally. Admission criteria for state schools is found on www.buckscc.gov.co.uk.
The house is set in a slightly elevated position with a block paved drive to the front providing off street parking for vehicles and access to the garage. It is edged by flower beds planted with a variety of low shrubs and a brick wall at the front boundary. At the rear of the house, the garden has been terraced and has a small area of lawn with the remainder concrete paved. This was previously hard standing for two greenhouses and a shed which have now been removed. A lean-to greenhouse backs onto the study. The garage has a manual up and over door and has a boarded high-level storage space.
