This stunning, detached house has been entirely reconstructed to an exceptional specification by local craftsmen. Offered with a 10 year building warranty, it presents charming and versatile living accommodation in a semi-rural yet convenient location with beautiful views of the Chilterns countryside. Entered through the front door into a bright entrance lobby, there is a generous size utility room to one side with a door to the exterior. The kitchen is spacious, with a generous range of bespoke hand-built units in a painted finish with light polished Quartz work tops. Built-in appliances include an electric Rangemaster cooker, with extractor over, a Bosch fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is a separate pantry cupboard and a large under stairs cupboard. The practical ceramic floor has a wood grain effect. Two sets of double doors allow access onto the rear terrace. A step leads to the family sitting room with an impressive feature fire place with a lined chimney. From the kitchen, past the cloakroom with WC and hand basin, is a study area and a glazed passage to a magnificent vaulted reception room with a feature brick wall and separate door to the front. Upstairs are four double bedrooms. The master has double aspects and an en-suite shower room with heated towel rail. A further double with lovely views also has an en-suite shower room. Two further double bedrooms share the family bathroom, which also has a separate shower unit. Portobello Farm has underfloor heating to the ground floor, with radiators to the remainder of the house provided by an oil fuelled boiler. It is double glazed throughout.
Portobello Farm is situated in a delightful location just 1.4 miles from Chesham town centre with its wide range of shops, including Waitrose and Sainsburys, station and multiple amenities. From Chesham station, the Metropolitan Line (TFL Zone 9) has direct services to Baker Street and The City. To the north, the town of Berkhamsted has a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants along its High Street. Rail services run into London Euston. There is good access to the A41 and M25 for connection to the national motorway network and airports.

The house is approached through metal electric gates onto the Cotswold stone drive with parking for multiple vehicles and access to the detached brick built garage. The garage is fully insulated and could be ideal for use as a studio or home office with a window to the rear and electricity and plumbing already supplied. The front of the property has been landscaped and stocked with a selection of plants. A timber five bar gate leads through to the garden behind the house which has a newly built brick wall on one boundary and is laid to lawn with open fencing to the side and rear. This allows the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside to be fully appreciated. There is a broad expanse of terrace behind the house, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining.
