About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Country Houses

Killaspy is an intriguing detached residence, built in approximately 1911 to the design of renowned Amersham architect John Kennard with his strong Arts and Crafts influences. As a fine example, Killaspy has a lovely ‘living-room hall’, a key design feature of the Movement with its original oak panelling, parquet flooring and a cosy inglenook. Lived in by the same family for over sixty years, the house offers an excellent opportunity for those looking to create a wonderful bespoke family home for the 21st century. Entered through the front door into an entrance lobby, there is a coat room and cloakroom to one side. The inner hall doubles as a reception room and has a feature inglenook fireplace with Cortauld stove in an iridescent finish and a door to the rear garden. The main sitting room has triple aspects to the front, rear and side and an open fireplace with tiled surround. A further hall gives access to both the spacious dining room, with two feature glazed bookcases, and the kitchen which in turn has a walk in larder, utility room and workshop area beyond. Upstairs the landing runs the length of the house with a range of storage cupboards along one wall. The master bedroom has a double aspect to both front and rear gardens and a vanity unit. The second double bedroom also has a vanity unit. There are three further double bedrooms, all with views to the front garden. There is a family bathroom with four piece suite, a second bathroom with bath and washbasin and a separate wc.

The property is set on the edge of the picturesque Chesham Bois Common, under a mile level walk to the centre of Amersham on the Hill with its shops, restaurants, cafes and facilities including Marks & Spencer Food and Waitrose. Amersham station provides Metropolitan Line services to Baker Street and The City plus Chiltern Line services to Marylebone and Aylesbury. Amersham has excellent communications, within 7 miles of the M25 at junction 18 at Chorleywood and 6 miles from junction 2 of the M40 at Beaconsfield. The area is known for the high standard of its education with both state and private schools in the vicinity. Admission criteria for state schools can be found on the council website www.buckscc.gov.co.uk.

Approached by a gravel drive, the house is set in mature gardens of just under one acre. The double garage has two electric up and over doors. There is a second garage to the rear of the garden in poor condition. The level garden is predominantly lawn with flower beds, a small pond and rockery feature with well established trees, including two beautiful magnolias, and hedging to give great seclusion and privacy. There is also a greenhouse and an outbuilding adjacent to the house for further storage.
