Built in 1973 to the plans of the Canadian architect C J W Haines, this expansive five-bedroom house occupies an exceptional rural location in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside. Positioned at the edge of the sought-after village of Chalfont St Peter, the house offers incredible ease of access to the capital, with central London reachable from nearby Gerrards Cross in under 20 minutes. The house has seen extensive modernisation in recent years to offer just under 3,500 sq ft of internal living space spanning two storeys, with half an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens.
A private gated driveway separates the house from a quiet country lane, with the primary entrance at the tip of an external staircase. From the entrance hall the house opens out to present a modern kitchen with wonderful views to the garden. The removal of internal walls has transformed the quality of light and the spatial experience across the upper floor, with strategically placed full-length picture windows framing views of the surrounding countryside and chevron parquet flooring underfoot.
The dining and living room are organised in an-open plan, l-shaped layout, with sliding glass doors leading out to the terrace and an open fireplace with a wall of slate surround. Four of the five bedrooms are positioned on the opposite side of the upper floor, the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, attached dressing room and extensive floor-to-ceiling corner glazing.
A solid-oak staircase leads down to the guest-bedroom suite, kitchenette and second living room area on the ground level which could easily lend itself to a self-contained living space. A bright study or studio is also located on this floor.
Testament to its well-considered design, the layout of the house adapts with ease to the seasons; a solid fuel log-burner creating a wonderfully cosy snug on the lower floor and in warmer months, the space can be opened out entirely, spilling into the garden.
The rear of the house, oriented towards the afternoon sun, offers fabulous upper and lower decked terraces and pockets of seating areas nestled in the split-level garden. Fabulous deep borders, densely planted with tall grasses surround the lawn with the neighbouring woodland providing a picturesque backdrop.
Forming part ‘The Chalfonts’, which also includes Chalfont St Giles and Little Chalfont, Chalfont St Peter has long been considered a very desirable village for its ease of access to both the surrounding countryside, the neighbouring Chiltern hills and Colne Valley Park. Gerrards Cross, less than two miles away, is a characterful town with several supermarkets, several independent eateries and an Everyman Cinema.
The local area is renowned for highly rated standard of schooling, both state and public with a number of highly regarded independent schools for boys and girls. These include Thorpe House, Gayhurst, Davenies and Caldicott for boys and for girls Maltmans Green, St Mary’s, Godstowe, High March and Wycombe Abbey.
Hebden House is perfectly positioned for London commuters, with the train station at Gerrards Cross just an eight minute drive away, providing a direct and regular service to London Marylebone in approximately 19 minutes. There is also easy access to the M40, M25 and broader motorway network. Both Heathrow and Gatwick airports are also easily reachable.
