This characterful house is located in a tranquil setting yet convenient for Chesham town centre and station just two miles away. In the same family for many years, the spacious accommodation offers scope for updating and remodelling to suit a modern family (stpp).

There is a range of storage cupboards and a ceramic floor. Continuing through a bright breakfast area, the kitchen has generous oak fronted fitted units with light coloured granite effect work tops and the original parquet floor. It features a gas hob with an extractor fan above, an electric oven, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer.

This, in turn, leads to a double bedroom with a fitted wardrobe and an en suite shower room including both WC and washbasin. Stairs from the inner hall lead up to a spacious landing, where there is a study area and generous eaves storage. A large double bedroom to the rear has a roof light and a window with views to the rear garden.
