Location

Set within the Chiltern District of Buckinghamshire, Little Chalfont is a part of a group of villages known collectively as 'The Chalfonts'.

Whilst remaining rural in feel, the area is a particularly convenient location for access into London by both road and
rail. Chalfont & Latimer Metropolitan Line station in Little Chalfont is less than half a mile away providing a fast and frequent London commuter service into Baker Street/Marylebone (about
35minutes). The M25 is accessible at J18 Chorleywood, about 4 miles away providing access to the general motorway network, Heathrow airport (20 miles) and Central London (27 miles). Everyday amenities can be found within the village, with more
extensive shopping and restaurants being located at Amersham (2.3 miles) and Beaconsfield (7.9 miles). Some of the best schools in the country can be found locally including Wycombe
Abbey, Dr Challoner's School, Merchant Taylor's and Dr Challoners Grammar School for boys in Amersham and Dr
Challoners, High School for girls also in Little Chalfont. Golf can be found locally in Little Chalfont and close by at Harewood Downs and Beaconsfield. The prestigious racing venues of Ascot
and Windsor are also within close proximity.

Description

Beel House is an elegant Grade II* listed period home with an interesting and eclectic history dating as far back as the
16th century.

Once forming part of The Beel Park Estate, Beel House now sits at the end of a long tree lined driveway centrally within its plot of around 13.5 acres of private gardens and grounds. The main house, predominantly of Georgian elevations, benefits from a
very adaptable layout with a good blend of elegant formal reception rooms and comfortable family living.

Beel House provides an exciting opportunity for a full restoration
project, giving someone the chance to create their own style on a private estate, so close to London.

Leisure facilities
The addition of the swimming pool complex is of particular note and offers a large indoor pool, integrated spa, steam room and changing/shower rooms. A large games room with bar area provides a wonderful alternative entertaining space away from the main house. To the outside, a croquet lawn and an all-weather tennis court complete with a wooden pavilion can be found.

Gardens and grounds
The mature gardens and grounds surrounding Beel House,
lying predominantly to the south west elevations, both compliment the property and offer privacy. Flanked by a
beautiful terrace leading to the formal gardens the property makes full use of the outside space. The grounds are wonderfully diverse including formal areas, wild flower meadows and a walled garden with fruit trees and cages.

A selection of mature trees add to the scene within the grounds including 300 year old Oaks, 3 Cedars of Lebanon and an ancient Tulip tree.

To the far south west elevation, a small deer park can be found providing delightful views from the main house. A range of outbuildings to the southern elevations provide garaging and useful storage with the possibility to convert into further accommodation (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).

Square Footage: 10194 sq ft

Acreage: 13.5 Acres
