Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to the 16th century Old Rafters has been significantly, yet very sympathetically, extended in more recent years.

DESCRIPTION

A magnificent example of form following function from an age of architectural excellence.
The English cottage is now the most sought after property type. Built for country life and being now in reach of major cities and towns, the cottage lacks nothing. And Old Rafters reveals why.

Its quirky layout includes a pool room with shower, formal drawing room featuring a magnificent Inglenook with beehive chimney, generous grand dining hall, utility room and a superb barn room with exquisite exposed beams and beautiful views over the heated outdoor pool. This could easily be converted into a self-contained annexe, subject to the usual planning consents.

Five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms offer immense scope for the first floor.

The farmhouse style kitchen with breakfast area has a gas fired AGA plus a separate induction hob and leads sensibly on to the grand dining hall.

The home's rustic personality shines through its beams and open fireplaces and vaulted ceilings.

Add to all this private surrounding gardens, parking and a double detached garage and there can be little more to demand from a home in the country.

Not more than 50 minutes from London with train fast routes from Beaconsfield and Amersham, easy, short routes to motorways (M40 and M25) pin this down as desirable in every way that matters today.

COLESHILL iis surely one of Buckinghamshire's treasures.

A hilltop village which the Romans considered significant, it exudes charm and character.
Its colours in all seasons are impressive; from the brilliant white of snowy winters to rich green of the oaks in leaf.

The dignified tone of the bell in the 19th-century church opposite the village hall gives this village a uniquely watched-over feel.

The church, the windmill, the captivating water tower (once featured on Grand Designs) and Coleshill House provide powerful visual reminders of the location, which remain with you once you've left.

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.
