This characterful Edwardian property, built in 1907, retains the charm and many original features of the era. In an elevated situation, the house has views over Chesham to the countryside beyond. Approached by steps to the front door, the entrance hall has a Karndean floor which extends through to the kitchen. On the right, the double aspect living room has the original square bay window to the front and a multifuel burner, which gives a wonderful, cosy ambience. The kitchen has been extended to the side to create an open-plan dining area, ideal for modern family living, with a door to the garden. It has a generous range of wall and base units with white gloss fronts and contrasting dark wood work surfaces. Appliances include a built-in electric oven and separate microwave, five ring gas hob including a wok burner and a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen is an area housing the fridge and freezer, also a tumble dryer, which leads on to the spacious utility room at the rear with ample additional storage units. There is a door from here to access the rear of the house and further external storage for logs etc. A downstairs cloakroom has a WC and hand basin. Upstairs on the first floor there are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom, which has a powered over-bath shower, WC and wash basin. The master bedroom at the front has views and a large fitted wardrobe. A further staircase leads past a door to access the loft space up to the fourth double bedroom. From the exterior, there is a low-ceilinged cellar under the sitting room. The house benefits from gas central heating.
The property is set back on a residential road, approximately half a mile from Chesham town centre with the Metropolitan line station (TFL Zone 9, direct service to Baker Street and The City), Waitrose and Sainsburys, the Elgiva Theatre and the open-air heated swimming pool. The area is also renowned for its range of independent and state schools, including Chesham Grammar School within half a mile (with adjacent public leisure centre with indoor pool and gym facilities). Admission criteria for state schools can be found on www.buckscc.gov.co.uk. Nearby towns of Amersham and Berkhamsted provide a further range of amenities and rail services. Amersham provides both TFL Zone 9 Metropolitan line and Chiltern Line services to Marylebone whilst Berkhamsted has mainline trains to Euston.

At the front of the property there is a large, brick built double garage with space for two cars and additional storage. It has an electric up and over door and power supply. Accessed from the side, there is a room underneath currently used as an art studio but was previously an inspection pit for the garage above.
