A four bedroom detached house with a two bedroom annexe backing onto private woodland with over 7 acres of grounds including gardens, paddocks, equestrian facilities and a double garage with driveway parking. This property is positioned a little over a mile outside the historic village of Great Missenden, between the Buckinghamshire towns of Amersham and Wendover, in the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding area is known for its rolling countryside, with acres of unspoilt beech woodland on underlying chalk escarpment with associated chalk stream valleys and stretches of grassland. Set off a minor road in the middle of this landscape, Shercot is a red brick house with clay hanging tiles and a clay tiled roof, that was built in the middle of the 20th century with respect for local vernacular architecture. A substantial house, it now requires attention and modernisation, but the lie of the land and the outside facilities make it a particularly appealing prospect for those who love the countryside or have equestrian lifestyles.

About the house

The property is approached from Rignall Road through a timber gate which accesses driveway parking by the side of the house and in front of the double garage. Set well back from the road the house is surrounded by gardens and overlooks pastureland, in the form of paddocks, which rise behind the house towards woodland. The rooms in the house, most of which have lead paned windows, overlook the garden or the driveway. The reception rooms have brick built open fireplaces. Arranged over two floors the main house has an entrance hall with a cloakroom, a kitchen/breakfast room, a sitting room, a family room and a dining room downstairs. On the first floor there are three double and one single bedrooms, two en suite bath or shower rooms and a family bathroom with a separate WC. The annexe has a ground floor sitting room, a kitchen and a cloakroom, as well as a bedroom with an en suite shower room. The first floor has a second bedroom and an en suite bathroom.

Ground Floor

Double timber wooden doors open to an entrance hall. There is a cloakroom under the stairs with a window to the front. A staircase with wooden slatted rails leads up to the first floor landing; in the stair well there is a prominent lead paned feature window overlooking the front garden. The hall has doors to the kitchen and all three reception rooms.

Sitting, Family & Dining Rooms

French doors lead into an L-shaped sitting room which has a more recent brick built open fireplace. Triple aspect, this room has sliding patio doors to the rear garden and windows overlooking the front and side gardens. The dining room can be approached from the kitchen or the hall and has an original brick open fireplace with an arched alcove cupboard to the left of the chimney breast. It has a wooden floor and overlooks the rear garden. The family room has a similar original brick fireplace and also has a window overlooking the rear garden.

Kitchen/Breakfast & Utility Rooms

The kitchen can be accessed through the utility room, the entrance hall, the dining room or the garden back door connecting the annexe. It is dual aspect with windows overlooking the front and in the breakfast area overlooking the drive. There is a peninsular unit with cupboards beneath and a granite work surface. The worksurface continues under the window with an inset double stainless steel sink, tiled splash backs and cupboards beneath. There is a free standing Rangemaster oven and the whole kitchen/breakfast area has ceramic floor tiles. There are further base and wall pine doored units in the breakfast area and downlighting and spotlights in the ceiling. The utility room, which can be accessed from a door to the right of the front door, has two windows overlooking the drive, a glazed door, fluorescent strip lighting and a ceramic tiled floor.

First Floor Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The staircase turns before reaching a square landing at the top with access to the loft above. To the right is bedroom one and to the left is a short corridor with access to three further bedrooms and a family shower room. Bedroom one is a dual aspect double bedroom and has built-in wardrobes. The en suite has a separate WC and basin which leads to a separate bathroom. Bedroom four is a single room with cupboards, overlooking the front. Bedrooms two and three, both double rooms, overlook the rear garden and bedroom two has an en suite three piece bathroom with built in cupboards, while bedroom three has a decorative beamed feature.


Although interconnected, the annexe is completely self-contained and can be separated by locking the door from the kitchen, making it suitable for intergenerational living or for staff. It can be accessed through the annexe front door, overlooking the drive, or through the annexe back door from the garden. There are also other doors into annexe bedroom one or French doors into the annexe sitting room.

Annexe Kitchen

Accessed from the annexe sitting room, and one step up, the annexe kitchen has a window overlooking the drive with a stainless steel sink inset into a roll top work surface that continues round the kitchen over base limed wood effect units underneath, with similar wall units above. There is a tiled splash back, an integrated Select hob with an extractor fan above, a built-in double Neff oven and space and plumbing for a fridge and washing machine. There is a wall mounted Worcester boiler. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom with a basin and a WC. This is accessed from the small annexe hall which opens to the garden. In the same area there is a new meter board.

Annexe Sitting Room & Bedrooms

The dual aspect annexe sitting room, with French doors to the rear garden and windows to the side, has a wood effect laminate floor and an electric fire with a decorative pine surround. A modern turned pine baluster staircase leads to the upstairs annexe bedroom two, a double, dual aspect room, which overlooks the garden and the drive and has an en suite bathroom. Double annexe bedroom one is downstairs and has a window overlooking, as well as a door to, the garden. It has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room with a window onto the drive.


Gardens completely surround the property. Directly in front of the house is a smooth rectangular area of lawn that was perhaps once a tennis court. On one side of this there is an established border, with mature trees and shrubs, which create a screen from the drive. Beyond this lawn, and screening the road from the house, are mature trees and indigenous hedging which enclose the entire plot. Around the paddock boundaries, and dividing the three paddocks, there is also post and rail fencing. Immediately behind the house the rear garden is laid to lawn with wide paths round the house, this lawn extends towards the paddocks, which slope gently upwards towards the belt of private woodland that borders the boundary.


A double garage (approx. 21 ft. by 18 ft.) is set to the right and behind the house at the end of the tarmac drive which slopes up from the road. Built of brick with a tiled roof, it has a double up-and-over door and power connected. There is an integral store (approx. 9.5 ft. by 8 ft.) at the end of the garage with a window and double doors, making it ideal for the storage of tractors and mowers, and a similarly sized workshop with a single door and a window at the back.

Equestrian Facilities

Menage, Stable, Long Shed, and Field Shelters Beyond the formal lawns of the garden is a manage with a shredded rubber and sand surface and enclosed by post and rail fencing. In front of this is a timber stable block comprising three stalls and a tack room. There are two further stables at the end of a system of open bay storage all of which runs for approx. 74 ft. along the boundary behind the garage. There is also a timber long shed (approx. 44 ft. by 10 ft.), currently used for storage. There are two timber field shelters on the paddocks, one is a double stall, one is single.

Planning Permission

Recent planning permission has been granted to build a replacement three storey dwelling in excess of 5,000 sq. ft., ref: PL/22/0927/FA.
