AT­ING from 1905, Brack­ens is an el­e­gant seven bed­room Arts and Crafts home in Chal­font St Giles of­fers pur­chasers the op­por­tu­nity to buy a piece of Buck­ing­hamshire his­tory.

Hav­ing orig­i­nally been built as an lav­ish 11 bed­room home, the house in 1929 be­came Short­e­nills Prepara­tory School. In 1940 it was sold as part of the war ef­fort and to­day re­tains an ac­ces­si­ble WW2 bunker in its ex­ten­sive grounds.Af­ter the war, this op­u­lent prop­erty was di­vided into two, with Brack­ens form­ing the ma­jor­ity of the orig­i­nal build­ing. It is un­der­stood that it is be­ing sold for only the sixth time in its long his­tory.

To­day, a wealth of char­ac­ter fea­tures in­clude orig­i­nal doors, cov­ing, dado/ pic­ture rails, grand leaded win­dows, char­ac­ter work­ing fire­places and high ceil­ings.

The stunning par­quet floor­ing has been ren­o­vated by a mas­ter crafts­man. Ac­com­mo­da­tion com­prises four re­cep­tion rooms, kitchen with util­ity, pantry and store rooms, six/seven bed­rooms along with two bath­rooms and two WCs.Th­ese well pro­por­tioned rooms set over three floors have won­der­ful views over well tended gar­dens whilst both its lo­ca­tion and ma­ture bound­aries of trees and bushes cre­ate a high level of pri­vacy.

The prop­erty is on the mar­ket for £2,300,000. Con­tact Winkworth Bea­cons­field on 01494 677978.
