Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Offering immense potential to extend and personalise (STPP), Toad Hall is a large five bedroom country home set within a generous plot and located in the picturesque village of Flaunden.

The house provides great flexibility and adaptability for a new and growing family. The inside of the house downstairs has openly connecting rooms providing a large and flexible living space but which can all be sectioned off if required. The kitchen also has an original cream two oven solid fuel Aga which provides heating for the radiator in the en-suite bathroom above it. The main lounge can be accessed via a bespoke oak stable door and via a large archway. The solid fuel burner stove provides ample heating for the main area of the house. The living room, dining room, hallway, cloakroom and office has new oak flooring throughout.

Each room across the back of the house has direct access to the patio area via its own doors. The kitchen and sunlounge area take you out to the patio with the pergola grapevine and provide a living space that brings the house and garden together. The dining room opens out onto the outside seating area providing a great space for entertaining. The end of the house has a room that is now a music room and snug. The room has provided great flexibility initially being used as a play room and later an au-pair`s bedroom with its own access. This end of the house does have two large rooms and has the potential to provide separate accommodation with its own access.

The property sits next to a footpath that takes you through to the local Norman church and the popular Green Dragon pub, also providing you with walks into the nearby forest down to the lovely River Chess in Latimer Valley. The footpath is also the original Bucks Herts border before the borders were changed. At the crossroads of Hogpits Bottom is the Bricklayers Arms popular for its fine country restaurant. This route also takes you into the local woodland which is popular for walks with dogs and children.

The property sits in approximately 1/3 acre of land which has been thoughtfully sectioned off to provide effectively four garden areas making it safe and secure for families and pets whilst providing access to all areas including the extensive brick garaging, vegetable plot with greenhouse, sheds and large chicken coup, garden office, recreation garden with its play area, highly secure swimming pool and outdoor lounge with patio.


The Hertfordshire village of Flaunden is set in the south of the county, close to the border with Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills.

This idyllic village sits high on a gentle slope looking down towards the valley of the River Chess and lies within a conservation area.

It is situated circa five miles east of the market town of Chesham and 4 miles north of Chorleywood, where the station provides access to London Marylebone (circa 32mins). J19 of the M25 and the A41 are also nearby affording fast access into the Capital.

There are two pubs, the Bricklayers Arms and The Green Dragon which also has a Thai restaurant. The village church, St Mary`s, was built in 1838 and there is a village hall with a well-equipped children`s playground.
