HE per­cep­tion that a listed build­ing can­not be changed is a mis­con­cep­tion, says An­drew Cronan, head of Sav­ills Bea­cons­field. “List­ing it­self is not a preser­va­tion or­der, pre­vent­ing change. It sim­ply means that, in or­der to pre­serve and celebrate the ar­chi­tec­tural in­ter­est of a build­ing, ad­di­tional listed build­ing con­sent must be ap­plied for, and granted, be­fore any works are car­ried out, par­tic­u­larly as con­tra­ven­tion of listed build­ing con­sent is a crim­i­nal of­fence with no time lim­i­ta­tion for en­force­ment,” ex­plained An­drew Cronan.

“We have just launched Shell House, in Hedger­ley for sale.This Grade II* listed prop­erty was built in the Re­nais­sance style in 1683 by lo­cal res­i­dent Ed­ward Penn (be­lieved to be a rel­a­tive of the renowned Quaker Wil­liam Penn).

“Now avail­able for only the sec­ond time in its 330-year history, the prop­erty was bought by the cur­rent owner in 1947 and, since then, has not seen many sub­stan­tial changes.

“As such, Shell House presents a pur­chaser with an ex­tremely rare op­por­tu­nity – to ac­quire a pe­riod home with much of its orig­i­nal char­ac­ter and fea­tures in­tact but with the time, vi­sion and fi­nance to bring it into line with 21st cen­tury liv­ing.”

Shell House cur­rently com­prises four/five bed­rooms, two bath/shower rooms, two re­cep­tion rooms, kitchen/ break­fast room, garag­ing, two work­shops, ma­ture land­scaped gar­dens of just un­der three acres.

Guide price £1,950,000. For more in­for­ma­tion call Sav­ills on 01494 731950.
