Before you even step over the threshold, an acre of land within which the house sits is there to absorb and enjoy. Consisting of several gardens, a croquet lawn with a beautiful backdrop of hillside and woods beyond; a courtyard patio that is perfect for enjoying the afternoon sun; an orchard and allotment area with apples and pears; a greenhouse and a vegetable patch. Most charming is the 'inner garden' - an area enclosed by the original, listed iron railings that surround the house. This is a perfectly safe haven.
One enters the hallway via a well- proportioned front door with ivy clad walls to either side, to discover the most ancient area of the property. Original flagstones, a huge open fireplace and exposed beams set the tone. abundant character and endless original features, which are clearly the reason why it would make such a fantastic renovation project and future home.
To the left is the formal, wood panelled drawing room with a large fireplace and unusual round bay window that looks onto the inner garden. To the right, a cloakroom and, beyond that, a dual aspect sitting room with wood burner and superb views onto Francis Woods. Behind the staircase, at the back of the entrance hall, is a study/playroom with an original built in corner cupboard and chimney. It would make a perfect 'snug', were the fireplace to be reinstated.
Steps lead down to a large dining room. Again, the chimney recess could accommodate an Aga. A kitchen and utility room lie beyond, the latter housing a second fridge and appliances, as well as plenty of wall and base units. The kitchen, which has a large range oven and handmade elm and oak units, leads onto a boot room with outside access.
Upstairs, original wide oak floorboards lead to six individual double bedrooms. The master has many exposed beams, a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two is double aspect. Bedroom three overlooks the courtyard patio. A family bathroom, separate WC and linen cupboard are also found off the long, wide landing. Bedrooms four, five and six between them feature wonderfully high ceilings, exposed beams, a fireplace, revealing the original construction of the house, which dates back to the 1490s.

Chesham can be described as having one foot in London and the other in Buckinghamshire.
Lively and colourful, it has a cosmopolitan air yet shares Buckinghamshire's most prized features: the inspiring countryside, the rare peace and the ancient feel of England's traditions.
Smart and increasingly well served by familiar High Street shops, Chesham's independent retailers provide everything residents need. A quality butcher, housewares shop, chemist and baker complement the coffee shops and supermarkets.
Known locally for its schools (prep school and grammar school) the wide expanses of the country are no more than five minutes' drive from the centre.
The dual identity of Chesham makes it an informed choice for those leaving urban centres but wishing to remain connected to the hum and variety the larger town brings.
