DESCRIPTION

Basking in probably one of the finest eras in house building, this 1920s detached house showcases the period to perfection.

The classic geometric styling seems made for its setting in the renowned Chesham Bois woods. Nature and housebuilding technology make an ideal match.

The symmetry continues inside giving a sense of order and logic to the space. Two double bedrooms (the master with its own four-piece en-suite), two singles and a family bathroom upstairs provide all the space necessary.

Downstairs a drawing room, dining room and kitchen with dining/breakfast area, office and cloakroom further enhance the house's well-defined space. Clean and kitchen units, simple décor and quality flooring throughout give this house its classic character.

A gravel drive leading to the integral garage is every bit the country house essential. The garage at 25' in length with storage at the back is almost the entire depth of the house. Ample room for vehicles, storage, a workshop, studio or a quiet space to carry out ongoing projects.

One of its most outstanding pleasures this house offers is the view from every window: the gardens with their sheer variety of plants, shapes, levels and textures frame the house perfectly.

The house's position - facing slightly NE/SW - explains the variety that can be grown here. Rich greenery, mature trees, colour and creative forms in the handsome gardens make the views ever-changing artworks.

Its value is in its age, position and the small number of properties in this exclusive, secluded drive. Everything you expect from Edwardian design is here: symmetry, proportion, a practical use of space and desirability: few properties have so much to offer.

LOCATION

Amersham has two clearly distinguishable parts. The ancient market town (Old Amersham) is quietly alluring. It retains its olde English look and deservedly attracts visitors all year round.

Amersham-on-the-Hill (known as top Amersham to locals) has the feel of a steadily developing modern town. It provides the convenient amenities today's population demands.

The trains from Amersham run right into Baker Street/Marylebone and the roads quickly lure you out towards the open country with its scattering of farms, riding stables, tea shops and footpaths. The Tuesday market and annual French and Italian summer markets are a focal point in the town's calendar.

A pleasantly mixed-age population, Amersham is an increasingly popular choice for families with young children. Parenting becomes significantly easier and children have the childhood they deserve in this ever evolving town.
