Set in beautifully landscaped grounds of approx. 1.5 acres, this well-proportioned family home is approached by a private, gated drive which boasts privacy and seclusion. The welcoming entrance hall, with a study and cloakroom to either side, continues to the spacious, galleried sitting room with a brick open fireplace, timber beams and vaulted ceiling. French windows open onto the rear terrace and garden beyond and an intimate dining room is accessed from the other side. The kitchen, refitted two years ago, has a generous range of oak units with granite work surfaces and quarry tile flooring plus spaces for the usual appliances. The breakfast area continues from here, with matching oak cupboards, Cornish slate floor and doors to the patio, ideal for al fresco dining with garden views. A spacious double bedroom with en suite shower room is accessed through the utility area and has potential to be extended into an adjacent outbuilding to create a self contained annexe. Upstairs, the landing is bright and spacious, lending itself for use as an additional sitting or family area. There are four light and airy double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes and a vanity unit, plus the master bedroom with dressing area. The family bathroom has a contemporary suite and separate shower. The airing cupboard and loft have access from the landing and there is double glazing and gas central heating throughout.
The property is located in a semi rural yet convenient location in Ley Hill, two miles from Chesham town centre with its Metropolitan Line station and shopping and leisure facilities. Ley Hill has two popular pubs, a golf course and a highly regarded junior school. Berkhamsted, five and a half miles away, has shopping facilities plus a wide selection of cafes and restaurants and rail service to London Euston. The A41 (approx. 4 miles) provides easy connection to motorways and airports. The area provides highly regarded schools, state and private, including Chesham Preparatory School, Chesham Grammar and Dr Challoner's Grammars. Entrance criteria for state schools is available on www.buckscc.gov.uk.
The house is surrounded by exquisite, well maintained gardens with areas of lawn, flower beds, mature shrubs and trees including a pretty willow. The Cotswold stone driveway provides generous parking and access to two timber carports, one double and a single with an attached log store. A five bar gate beside the house leads to two stables and a shed, currently used for storage. The rear terrace has low brick walls and a built in BBQ with subtle exterior lighting to illuminate evening dining and entertaining. A large pond with decked area is a focal feature and there is a summer house, a copse of fir trees and access to a paddock at the end of the garden.
