A ‘fan­tas­tic for­ever fam­ily home’ in Lu­tyens style

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

AS A pro­po­nent of the Arts and Crafts move­ment at the turn of the last cen­tury, Sir Ed­win Lu­tyens is re­spon­si­ble for de­sign­ing a broad variety of build­ings, rang­ing from The Ceno­taph at White­hall and the Viceroy’s house in New Delhi to the Ger­rards Cross Me­mo­rial build­ing, not to men­tion a num­ber of highly re­garded coun­try houses through­out the UK.

His style is cel­e­brated for its em­pha­sis on crafts­man­ship and tra­di­tion­ally sim­ple lines and his legacy is en­dur­ing, still in­spir­ing ar­chi­tects in their de­signs today.

One such ex­am­ple is Dene House on West­field Road in Bea­cons­field, which with its clean lines, gen­er­ous pro­por­tions and use of tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als em­u­lates Lu­tyens’ style.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion is ex­tremely ver­sa­tile mak­ing it ideal for for­mal en­ter­tain­ing as well as a more in­for­mal fam­ily life­style. It in­cludes a kitchen/break­fast room, util­ity room, three re­cep­tion rooms and a study on the ground floor; with seven bed­rooms and six bath/shower rooms on the first and se­cond floors.

Out­side, the half acre plot is en­vi­ably lo­cated just over half a mile from the shops and trans­port fa­cil­i­ties of Bea­cons­field New Town.Yet, the seclu­sion of the gar­dens cre­ate the false im­pres­sion of be­ing more iso­lated. As a re­sult, this is a very pri­vate home.

Chris Moor­house, head of Sav­ills in Bea­cons­field, said:“Dene House is a re­ally fan­tas­tic for­ever fam­ily home.The prox­im­ity of Bea­cons­field New Town with its su­perb train link into Lon­don Maryle­bone from 23 min­utes; some of the most highly re­garded schools in the coun­try in­clud­ing tra­di­tional gram­mar schools and the pri­vate Dave­nies school for boys and High March for girls; shops, cafes and restau­rants; makes this a highly de­sir­able prospect for a wide range of buyer.

“In­deed, with the prospect of 20% house price growth by 2021 (although this is likely to be fairly flat over the next cou­ple of years), it presents a won­der­ful in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity for those buy­ers pre­pared to take a longer-term view.This is par­tic­u­larly rel­e­vant for buy­ers mov­ing out of Lon­don where the value gap be­tween the cap­i­tal and the com­muter zone has be­come in­creas­ingly pro­nounced in re­cent times.”

Dene House has seven bed­rooms, six bath/shower rooms, three re­cep­tion rooms, study, kitchen/ break­fast room, util­ity room, de­tached dou­ble garage, drive­way, front and rear gar­dens.

PRI­VATE SET­TING: The half acre plot makes the property feel very se­cluded, even though it is only just over half a mile away from Bea­cons­field New Town.
