This unique and enchanting property is located in the village of Coleshill, convenient for the shopping and amenities of both Amersham and Beaconsfield yet in a gloriously rural environment. Originally 16th century, the house has been significantly yet sympathetically extended in more recent years. Presented in immaculate condition, the house is entered through a small lobby and stout oak door into a quarry tiled dining hall with wood burner. From here, a study with views to the front and an open fireplace leads to the drawing room which features a magnificent inglenook with beehive chimney and log storage area. The farmhouse style kitchen with breakfast area has a gas fired AGA plus a separate induction hob and a combined oven/microwave. There are extensive cupboards, the base units with granite surfaces, and a large food store with external ventilation. Through an internal hallway, an arch doorway leads into a spectacular reception room known as the barn room. A stunning vaulted ceiling and an open fireplace make this a special place for entertaining and family gatherings. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a boot room to the rear terrace, a generous sized utility room, downstairs cloakroom with WC and hand basin, a secure store room and a wine store. On the first floor, the master bedroom has a dressing room and adjacent en-suite shower room. Two double bedrooms and a single bedroom share the family bathroom. Accessed via a separate staircase from the barn room is a further double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. There is gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
