For­mer au­thor’s house for sale

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - HOMES-SOUTHBUCKS.CO.UK -

THE for­mer home of poet, jour­nal­ist, ac­tor and writer, Arthur Machen, has be­come avail­able to let through Sav­ills.

Although best known for his nov­els The Hill of Dreams and The White Peo­ple, it was through his act­ing that Machen met his sec­ond wife, Dorothy Pure­foy, a mar­riage which brought with it im­mense hap­pi­ness and a move from London to the quin­tes­sen­tial English vil­lage of Amer­sham in 1929.

Sit­u­ated on the High Street of Old Amer­sham, Lyn­wood is a pic­ture per­fect cot­tage where Machen lived from 1929 un­til his death in 1947.

Avail­able to let, the prop­erty of­fers four bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, two re­cep­tion rooms, kitchen/break­fast room and gar­den and is avail­able un­fur­nished for £1,895 per month.

Claire Pin­cott, head of Sav­ills Bea­cons­field and Amer­sham Let­tings, says: “This is a per­fect fam­ily house.

“It of­fers four bed­rooms and a gar­den, both of which are a rar­ity in the old town.

“Add to this its close prox­im­ity to the old town, the sta­tion and the popular pri­mary school of St Mary’s, and it is easy to see why it would ap­peal to a fam­ily.”

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call Sav­ills Bea­cons­field and Amer­sham Let­tings on 01494 731 960.
