Location

Vale Farm is set on the edge of Chesham on the corner of Poplar Close where 'town meets country'. Vale Road leads from the bottom of Nashleigh Hill onto the Chiltern hill top villages of Cholesbury & Hawridge which offer numerous country footpaths and bridle ways and the popular Full Moon public house overlooking the common. Chesham town centre with its pedestrianised High Street and Metropolitan line station for the London commuter is about a mile away. Alternative towns such as Berkhamsted & Amersham are both about four miles away. The A41 at Berkhamsted connects with the M25 at J20 giving access to the general motorway network and London airports.

Description

Vale Farm is a most attractive Grade II listed former Tudor farmhouse, offering a wealth of original charm and character features. Set fairly centrally within its idyllic grounds of about an acre, it is encircled by a gravelled driveway, with brick & flint walls and cast iron railings and gates (also listed).

The wide front door opens onto a welcoming reception hall with flagstones and feature fireplace and a stove. Doors lead to the four reception rooms including an elegant wood panelled drawing room with a large rounded bay window overlooking the inner garden and a sitting/family room with brick fireplace and wood burner, with fitted display units either side. Doors open onto a secluded terrace.

There is also a study with fitted book shelves and feature corner cabinet. The formal dining room with an under stairs drinks/china cupboard connects to the kitchen/breakfast room fitted with oak and elm units incorporating a range cooker within a brick chimney breast and space for a small breakfast table and chairs. From here doors lead to a good sized utility room and a separate boot room which also serves as the more practical 'back entrance'.

Upstairs off the long landing with original wide oak floorboards are the six double bedrooms, with high ceilings, exposed beams and some evidence of original 'wattle & daub' in one of the walls. There are two bathrooms including one en suite to the master bedroom which also has a small dressing room.

An undoubted feature of Vale Farm is its gardens and grounds with the more formal inner garden behind the wall and railings. Beyond this are further areas of garden, the area at the rear incorporating a vegetable garden and greenhouse and the one at the front with a lovely back drop of open fields and countryside beyond, often used for croquet. This lawn is flanked by the large 18th century barn with eight open bays which offers great potential, subject to its Grade II listing. There are various sheds and stores as well as a detached garage, in a state of disrepair, near to the entrance.
