A most intriguing detached residence, individually designed and built in the 1960's, set in a delightful cul de sac with a woodland backdrop. Now offering excellent scope for modernisation and extension, the property offers light and spacious accommodation together with ample parking and a garage. Entering through the front door, with a cloakroom to one side, steps lead down to the spacious living room with separate dining and sitting areas. Picture windows allow natural light to flood in and offer lovely southerly views across the garden, with a double glazed door onto the rear terrace. The adjacent kitchen is fitted with a wide range of wall and base units featuring light wood veneer doors and Formica surfaces. There is an electric hob and oven, plumbed washing machine and one and a half bowl stainless steel sink. Amtico flooring continues to the breakfast area, which has floor to ceiling windows and a door to the rear terrace. The breakfast area was part of an extension, added in 1986, which also provides a double bedroom and shower room with wc and basin in a vanity unit, also a lobby with access to bedroom four and to a side entrance. Up the open tread staircase to the galleried landing, with an airing cupboard and loft access, there is a double bedroom and also the master bedroom, both with a good range of fitted cupboards. The family bathroom, fitted with a white contemporary suite, has a heated towel rail and under floor heating. The house benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.
The property is situated in a quiet cul de sac yet within one and a half miles of Chesham town centre with its extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities, plus amenities. The Metropolitan line station is 1.3 miles away and provides direct services from Chesham to Baker Street and The City. Four miles to the north, the historic market town of Berkhamsted provides an alternative selection of shopping facilities and an impressive choice of cafes and restaurants. Rail services are available from Berkhamsted to London Euston (approximate journey times 35-45 mins). The property is conveniently located for access to the A41 and M25 connecting with the national motorway network and airports. The surrounding area provides an excellent selection of schooling, both state and private, including grammar schools. Admission criteria for state schools can be found on the Buckinghamshire County Council website www.buckscc.gov.uk.
The house has been cleverly set into the landscape to maximise the topography and southerly aspect of the plot, with views to mature woodland beyond the garden. The front of the house is approached by a paved drive, with garden to one side, which provides parking for several cars and also gives access to the garage. There is a wide path to the rear garden which is well maintained with areas of lawn and flower beds stocked with a variety of plants. A paved terrace spans the back of the house, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining.
