Former author’s house for sale
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.”
