This charming cottage dates back to the mid 1700`s and is arranged over three floors. It boasts a host of original features and has been well looked after.
The front door leads into the superb living room with large Inglenook fireplace and exposed beams being just some of the period features on show throughout the house.
The well fitted kitchen leads out on to a private walled garden which offers plenty of space for outdoor entertaining, with the added benefit of an outbuilding. This outdoor sunny space is quite a find in Old Amersham.
Upstairs leads to two further floors containing two double bedrooms and storage cupboards. The master bedroom has exposed beams and a beautiful fireplace. The second bedroom has large exposed timbers which really show the character of this delightful home.
Whilst historic properties have a reputation for being compact and dark, the space here is well proportioned and flooded with light. A delightful bonus is the garden and the close proximity to Amersham`s boutique shops and upmarket restaurants.
The property is in good decorative order, with painted walls and wooden flooring throughout the ground floor, and neutral coloured carpet upstairs.
There is nothing to compare with the feel of an established property; the building`s resilience and the affection for it which develops in its residents, means this home has an added dimension which is lacking in most other properties.
Age and charm; a chic location; the standing of a Grade II listed building; on all counts, this cottage has an attraction which is increasingly rare.
Viewing is highly recommended.

There is a good reason why Old Amersham is such a desirable location - for couples, families, businesses, TV and film companies.
An ancient market town, it is one of the few to hold an annual Charter Fair (each September) instated in the 13th century; it is the location for scenes in Four Weddings and a Funeral, episodes of Midsomer Murders and more recently Celebrity Masterchef; there are meeting and eating places to satisfy all tastes and educational facilities which are second to none in the country.
The location, which borders a rural landscape, also has a cosmopolitan feel that is enhanced by the boutique shops, independent retailers and coffee shops. A wider range of shopping and eating is in larger nearby towns such as Aylesbury, Watford and HighWycombe, all within a 35 minute drive from Old Amersham.
Essential links to London by road and rail are convenient and close by. Amersham Station is under a mile away and runs regular trains to London Marylebone on the Chiltern line or the Metropolitan line into Baker Street which takes just 35 minutes).
The M40 and M25 are within ten minutes` drive from the property giving easy access to all other areas whether travelling in or further out.
Not to be underestimated are the delights of the local area. Open farms, museums, fetes, carnivals and farmers` markets make this thoroughly country but with a feel of being on the edge of the city.
