Built in the 1930s, Chelwood is a fine and impressive house. It is approached via a pair of electrically operated wooden gates which give access to a spacious gravel driveway and parking
space for a number of vehicles. An attractive covered porch opens onto the reception hall and the magnificent underground wine cellar created by Spiral Cellars. This epitomises the professional standard of décor throughout the property, also
demonstrated by the impressive mouldings in many of the rooms. The principal ground floor rooms open off the reception hall and lend themselves to entertaining with an open-plan kitchen and dining room adjoining the recently added orangery. It was designed by Malbrook and built in 2015, creating a wonderfully light and airy space with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden.
Underfloor heating makes this an enjoyable place to relax in winter as well. The kitchen has painted units under neutral granite work surfaces and hardwood flooring. The drawing room has a
coal effect gas fire and the family room has an open Baxi fire. Rising to the first floor, three bedrooms with en suite bath or shower rooms overlook the gardens at the rear of the property.
The master bedroom is a delight with a spacious en suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. There are two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms on the second floor, as well
as a study. These rooms lend themselves to guest or teenage accommodation, ensuring a certain amount of privacy.
This property is ideally situated to take advantage of all that Beaconsfield and the Old Town have to offer whilst also providing a fast rail service into London. There is a wealth of restaurants and cafés close to hand as well as a range of shops including
Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. Sporting interests are catered for by David Lloyd in Wooburn Green with a gym, tennis courts and a swimming pool. Additional sports facilities are offered by Stoke Park and there are good quality golf courses locally, including Beaconsfield, Burnham Beeches and The Lambourne. There are a number of highly regarded private and state schools in the area. Boys’ schools include Davenies in Beaconsfield
itself, The Beacon and Caldicott, as well as the highly regarded Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe and Dr Challoner’s Grammar School in Amersham. Girls’ schools include High March
Preparatory school, Maltman’s Green and Godstowe, as well as Beaconsfield and Dr Challoner’s High Schools.
There is an attractive, newly-built oak-framed double garage to the right of the gravel forecourt as one approaches the property. An exterior staircase leads to a room above which could be used as a living room or bedroom and has an adjoining shower room. To the rear of the house, the level gardens have largely been laid to lawn with an established beech hedge to one side and a yew and holly hedge to the other. There are also some mature trees such as apple and a magnolia. A terrace runs along the rear of the property; an ideal spot for al fresco dining. Towards the
bottom of the garden, a path leads to a contemporary garden room which is currently used as an office.
