RIGINALLY called ‘The Nap’, number 54 Church Street – which dates back to around 1385– is thought to be Chesham’s oldest remaining house.
Grade II listed, it still retains many charming features, such as latched doors, an inglenook fireplace as well as a wealth of exposed beams, timbers and brickwork.
The property is conveniently located in the heart of Chesham’s Old Town within half a mile of the station and shops and easy reach of nearby countryside walks through the 36-acre Lowndes Park on its doorstep or through the Pednor Vale and beyond.
The well presented accommodation comprises: 17ft sitting room with feature fireplace and bay window to the front, a fantastic study recess with integrated shelves and built-in desk unit, high quality and attractive fitted kitchen with a door to the garden, family room with stunning inglenook fireplace home to a delightful wood burning stove, double doors then open to the triple aspect 14ft dining room with two bespoke built-in storage units and also enjoying an outlook over the cottage garden.
The first floor offers a stunning master bedroom with 10ft high vaulted ceiling and bespoke wardrobes/cupboards, second double bedroom and a first floor bathroom. The property also benefits from a super 14ft basement room with window to the front, which is currently used as home office/ workshop – and offers the potential for a variety of uses subject to the relevant consents.
Externally, the property offers a charming low maintenance walled garden providing a great setting to entertain and, unusually, also offers gated side access and brick built garden store.
