The Story

PERIOD HOME
Once home to actor Geoffrey Palmer, best known perhaps for his roles in television sitcoms Butterflies and The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin, the house is in good decorative order and is ready to move into. "The older parts of this property could possibly date back as far as the 16th or 17th century but it appears that the rest of the house is Georgian." Hedgerow could certainly hold scope for someone keen to make their own mark on their next home, however, and there are some useful outbuildings on the plot. "In addition to the main house itself, there is a separate studio, which could be ideal for someone keen to work for home, or equally it could become a gym, fitness room or artists studio," he suggests. "There is also a detached double garage here."

A LIGHT HOUSE
The ground floor of the house offers some well-proportioned living space. The property is entered via a reception hall which leads into the study, the dining room and the very long drawing room. Also on this floor is the kitchen breakfast room, which gives on to the utility room.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms plus a family bathroom. The master bedroom is especially large and has an en suite bathroom, together with a walk-in wardrobe.
"The whole house has a lot of character but is also comfortable and light," he says. "Certainly the current owner has been very happy living here."

SCENIC SURROUNDINGS
Hedgerow could be a family house or could also suit a couple or individual seeking a quiet life and the space to entertain.
"The drawing room is a good size and would be great for family gatherings or to have friends over at the weekend. I do also like the kitchen very much in this house too. It is the kind of kitchen you could imagine relaxing in after a long walk." The property could certainly be enhanced by the addition of a conservatory or orangery," he suggests.
"This could adjoin the kitchen and would complement the house; it would be a great place to enjoy the surroundings and scenery from."

BEAUTIFUL PLACE
The current owner has beautifully maintained the garden which includes 21 trees and has been cleverly planted. She relishes the outdoor lifestyle afforded her by the house.
The Chilterns are known for their many footpaths and beauty spots. There are stretches of woodland to enjoy and bridlepaths for those who indulge in equestrian pursuits.
The Lee is a pretty country village, which has an excellent village pub on its green. Together with Lee Common, there is a thriving community with a village shop and well-used village hall. "You can come here and be as involved as you like in the local community," he says. "It is a lovely, friendly place, which makes a good contrast to city life."

EXCELLENT LOCATION
The beauty of The Lee, of course, is also its proximity to Great Missenden. This is a charming, small market town, which is known for its range of restaurants and independent shops, as well as the popular Roald Dahl Museum. "This part of the world is also known for its outstanding schooling," he says. "There are the Challoner's boys and girls grammar schools, as well as Chesham Grammar School, all of which are very highly regarded and sought-after." He adds: "With the M25 M40, M1 and M4 all within easy reach too, this is a very desirable place to live - and Hedgerow could be everything someone wants when it comes to a welcoming country home from which to make the most of it."

Setting the Scene

Hedgerow has the benefits of a large driveway, with a detached double garage.
The house sits in its plot of approximately 0.63 acres. It has an enclosed rear garden, which is largely laid to lawn. There are flower beds, three vegetable patches and a mature orchard with 8 different varieties of old english apples.
The studio is connected to mains electricity and could make a superb office.

Within Easy Reach

Great Missenden train station is just a few minutes drive away and from here you can take the fast train to London Marylebone taking approximately 45 minutes. The M25 M40, M1 and M4 are all within easy reach and in turn make all the London airports easily accessible.
