This charming Grade II listed home, built in the Victorian Gothic style, was formerly the lodge at Chesham Bois Manor.
This unique property was originally the lodge for Chesham Bois Manor, built in the Victorian Gothic style in 1880 and now Grade II listed.
Chesham Bois Manor was built by architect J Wallis Chapman for prominent Chesham resident John William Garrett-Pegge. The neo-gothic 20-room mansion was originally called Chesham House but was renamed in around 1908.
John Garrett-Pegge was a respected Justice of the Peace and was associated with many local institutions and organisations, including Chesham Cottage Hospital and Chesham School. He was vice president of Chesham Football Club; Chesham Cricket Club, Chesham Choral Society and Chiltern Hills and Southern Bucks Agricultural Association.
The lodge today has been extended and modernised but still retains its charm, with exterior flint-knapped walls and stone mullion windows in the original parts.
The entrance hall has oak strip flooring and leads into the dining area of the kitchen. This is a wonderfully light room with a ceiling lantern, attractive cream painted units, granite surfaces and a timber topped dresser with wine rack and glass display cupboards. There is a gas range cooker, dishwasher, built-in microwave and fridge.
The utility room has plumbing for washing machine, a gas boiler, water softener and space for a fridge-freezer.
The sitting room, in the original part of the house, has a coffered-style ceiling and a wood burner. There’s also study which could be used as a bedroom, and a family bathroom.
The master bedroom has lovely double aspect views to the garden and a fully tiled en-suite bathroom. There is another double bedroom and a single bedroom. The bedrooms and bathrooms also benefit from underfloor heating.
