A unique opportunity to acquire a charming character cottage with outstanding rural views, yet conveniently located within two and a half miles from Chesham town centre.
The property is entered by a welcoming conservatory which is utilised as a living area and dining room, offering views over the attractive gardens. Casement doors open into a reception hall/study and a staircase to one side leads to the first floor. The charming sitting room affords a pretty bay window that overlooks the gardens to the front and enjoys a decorative feature fireplace with a wood burning stove. At the heart of the house is a beautifully fitted, contemporary styled kitchen that boasts a full range of eye and base level cupboards and drawers with ample work surfaces together with integrated appliances and space for a tall standing fridge freezer. There is also a large island that incorporates additional storage. All of which is set upon an attractive tiled floor. Beyond the kitchen is a utility with cloakroom whilst to one side, a doorway provides external access to the gardens. Situated on the first floor are two good size bedrooms including a delightful master bedroom with part vaulted ceilings and a balcony that provides stunning views over the neighbouring countryside. There is also a well-appointed family bathroom suite that services these rooms, as well as the third bedroom which is situated on the second floor.
The property is situated in the sought after area of Chartridge, two and a half miles north west of Chesham. The town has a Metropolitan Line station and also offers an excellent range of shopping and recreational amenities, including a Waitrose store and Sainsbury’s, with The Elgiva Theatre providing a wide range of entertainment. The property is situated in an AONB, providing beautiful scenery and many bridle paths for equestrian enthusiasts. Buckinghamshire is renowned for both its state and private schooling, with the property convenient for Chartridge Combined school together with local Grammar schools. Admission criteria can be gained from the Local Authority: www.buckscc.gov.uk.
Off road parking is provided to the front for two vehicles, whilst additional parking and a detached double garage can be found to the rear of the house. The garage itself is currently configured to accommodate one car and there is a store room to one side. Above the garage is a versatile home office with light and power. We believe that this offers excellent potential to convert into a full annexe facility if required and subject to the usual consents. A picket fence and gateway from the drive leads into the formal garden; with neatly kept lawns, surrounded by mature hedging and flowerbeds. Steps up lead onto a paved patio terrace that adjoins the house and provides an ideal entertaining area in the summer months. Beyond the terrace is a further expanse of garden that again offers a good degree of privacy and features a variety of wild flowers and meadow grass, bordered by mature shrubbery and hedging.
