This Grade II listed characterful cottage is deceptively spacious and has been thoroughly renovated to a high standard. Entered under an archway through a glazed door, the hall has a quarry tiled floor which continues through to the kitchen. There is a range of light colour painted units with timber worktops and tiled splash backs. Integrated appliances include a 6 ring gas hob with extractor over, electric oven fitted this year, a dishwasher, a wine fridge and an instant boiling water tap. There is space and plumbing for a washer dryer and a fridge freezer. The attractive sitting room is to the front of the property and has exposed original beams. An open fireplace is in use and has a brick hearth and fireplace surround. Stairs to the first floor landing lead to the master bedroom with a southerly rear aspect. Further steps from the landing lead to another double bedroom at the front of the house. This room has secondary glazing and three fitted wardrobes. The bathroom was completely refurbished last year and is elegantly fitted with high specification sanitary ware, including a large shower, a roll top bath, plus basin and wc. The floor tiling is by Fired Earth and electric under floor heating has individual controls. There is an adjacent three sided walk in wardrobe with shelving and hanging space for clothes storage. A second staircase leads to a loft room, which would be ideal as a study area, and through a door into another double bedroom under the eaves with a southerly aspect. The house benefits from gas central heating, controlled by a zoned Honeywell thermostat, from a two year old combi boiler. There are several storage cupboards throughout the house and the electrical system was overhauled in the past year.
The historic market town of Amersham enjoys an idyllic setting in the heart of the Chilterns. Within the town is a variety of renowned restaurants, cafes and pubs together with boutique clothing shops. There is also a Tesco superstore within half a mile.

London and Heathrow can be accessed via junction 2 of the M40 (Beaconsfield) or the M25 at junction 18 (Chorleywood), both of which are within 7 miles.

To the rear, a south facing tiered patio garden is a real sun trap and provides opportunities for secluded outdoor dining and relaxing in clement weather. There is a shed and covered shelter for storage to one side.
