VIDEO TOUR An attractive executive family home offering spacious accommodation of 5562 sq ft and enjoying a prime location in a private position only half a mile from the village centre. The property enjoys a delightfully landscaped gated plot of about two thirds of an acre.
The property approached via a leafy private road, originally built on the site of a country estate that was dismantled between the two World Wars. The grounds were then partitioned to create
large, gated plots affording the residents a great amount of privacy. The property was built in the 1990s and stands in The Chilterns Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The double gates open onto a wide and sweeping driveway leading to the front of the house. The house is highly distinctive with an attractive combination of brickwork and tiles, interspersed with exposed vertical beams. The covered porch
opens onto the reception hall which has a wonderfully light and airy feel, typical of the entire house. The drawing room is triple aspect with a Chesneys fireplace. Materials throughout
are of the highest quality and many of the rooms were recently repainted with Farrow & Ball products.
The principal reception rooms overlook the gardens at the rear of the house, making the most of the pleasing outlook. The garden room is perhaps the jewel in the crown. Wide bi-fold
doors open onto the terrace and an adjoining wine room creates not only a talking point but a very attractive focal point.
Al fresco dining is high on the agenda in the summer with a dining area on the terrace and a less formal seating area at the bottom of the garden. The warm, convivial dining room is
equally inviting when it comes to winter entertaining and the state-of-the-art kitchen has hand-painted Veritas units and granite work surfaces.
On the first floor, a galleried landing opens onto the master bedroom suite with his and hers dressing rooms fitted with Carrara marble surfaces and solid walnut cabinets by St Giles Furniture.
There are three further bedrooms on this floor and a spacious cinema/games room and bathroom on the second floor. This room could also be used as a bedroom.
Guest or au pair accommodation is catered for by the annexe over the garage which comprises a large living area, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. Access is gained from the main house
or via a separate external door. The gym on the ground floor, adjacent to the garage, could be converted to a kitchen if desired.
The property is located about third of a mile from the village centre, overlooking greenbelt countryside at the back. Chalfont St Giles has a pretty duck pond and a charming high street lined with 18th century cottages. Attractions include The Chiltern Open Air Museum and Milton Cottage where Milton finished Paradise Lost. Local pubs include The Fox & Hounds, The White Hart and The Merlins Cave. The village offers a deli, a coffee shop, and good day to day shopping, with larger supermarkets in nearby Amersham, Chalfont St Peter and Gerrard’s Cross.
The house is set well back from the road behind eectric wrought iron gates.. In addition to the triple garage, there is ample parking space. The leafy gardens are largely laid to lawn and in the winter months, views stretch
across the valley to the hillside beyond. 0.667 acre / 0.27 hectares in total.
