Experience the good life
COMPRISING the central portion of a period property dating back to the 17th century, Mapletree Farm East is an attractive brick and flint grade II listed property – one of three converted in 1957.
Offering a wealth of charm and character, this is a property which embodies country living with a touch of ‘The Good Life’-style selfsufficiency thrown in.
Situated in the semi-rural village of Chartridge which has a pub, 18 hole golf course, excellent primary school, bus service to nearby Chesham and a number of public bridleways and footpaths, Mapletree Farm East is a rural retreat yet is in close proximity to all the amenities necessary for modern-day life.
The house itself is set amongst 2.4 acres of grounds which includes a main lawn – perfect for playing croquet; and a fruit orchard and extensive vegetable patch providing an element of self-sufficiency.
In addition, there are two stables with integral tack/feed room, a large hay/wood store and a double workshop. For those with an equestrian interest, there is also the opportunity to purchase an additional 9.5 acres of glorious Chiltern countryside as paddocks are available by separate negotiation.
The accommodation on offer also lends itself to a flexible style of living. It includes an external garage with office above – ideal for the individuals who need to work from home – either on a permanent or semipermanent basis; a barn facing the inner courtyard which has formerly been used as a music and entertaining room. Now in need of some restoration, it offers a purchaser plenty of options for usage.
There is also a newly converted two bedroom annex which is ideal for those seeking multi-generational living or with a requirement for staff or guest accommodation.
Then there is the house itself which, with 4/5 bedrooms, versatile reception space and the period charm of a bygone era, represents the perfect family home.
Nick Pounce, head of Savills Amersham, said:“This property has so much to offer in terms of location, flexibility and opportunity.As a result, it will have broad appeal to a wide variety of buyers.”
Mapletree Farm East offers versatile space within the main house as well as an office, barn and newly converted annex. including barn, open bay garage with office above, summerhouse, 2.4 acres of gardens and grounds.
