A beautiful brick and flint Grade II listed family home, originally constructed in the 17th century with substantial later additions in the 19th century. The house is situated on a quiet no-through lane, surrounded by beautiful countryside with far reaching views over the Chilterns

Boss Lane House is a beautiful brick and flint Grade II listed family home, originally constructed in the 17th century with substantial later additions in the 19th century. The house has an interesting history and rumours are that Lillie Langtry, the famous British Music Hall singer and stage actress, known for her fashion and socialite friends, most notably the Prince of Wales, resided in the property in the late 1800's. The house was also used as a cabinet war office during World War II and was frequented on a number of occasions by Winston Churchill.

On the ground floor the original oak front door opens into a small entrance lobby with flagstone flooring and doors either side to the study and reception hall. The reception hall has oak-framed casement windows, the original staircase, an elegant inglenook fireplace and original oak flooring. The study also has an inglenook fireplace with oak mantel and extensive built-in wooden shelving.

The heart of this home is the 'Tom Howley' kitchen/ breakfast room, combining the original oak beams with a modern and contemporary feel, with the whole room being flooded with natural light from the orangery roof. There are a range of painted oak units with granite work surfaces over, integrated Miele appliances, a beautiful central island and 'Martin Moore' flooring with underfloor heating. Within the kitchen is a 'utility cupboard' with space for further appliances.
