The Octagon Effect in the Chilterns


Locals are beating a path to view the first Octagon property to be built in Little Chalfont, surrounded by the Chiltern Hills, close to Amersham in Bucks.

This is a very desirable area and one that Octagon have been scrutinising for some time, to find the ideal plot for one of their large detached family homes. Kingswood House, just completed, is situated on the prestigious Harewood Road, and offers everything a growing family could wish for.

The 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom detached property is within walking distance of the extensive array of local village shops, as well as Chalfont and Latimer station, where both Chiltern Trains and the Metropolitan underground service run regular services into the heart of London, a journey which takes around 45 minutes. There is also easy access into London and to Heathrow Airport via the nearby M40 and M25 motorways.

Constructed in pleasing traditional brick with stone detailing, this house is a one off creation from Octagon’s talented in house team of architects and designers. In contrast to the timeless exterior, the interior layout is sleek and contemporary.

Starting in the marble floored entrance hall, which has a dramatic triple height atrium and feature back-lit mirror on the staircase, in itself another design statement, the rich walnut treads and handrail add gravitas to the light-loving glazed balustrades.

Ground floor accommodation is both spacious and stylish, with study, TV Den, dining room, super-sized kitchen and separate utility room. Fitted high gloss linear units in the kitchen incorporate a full range of Miele appliances, plus the essential, energy conserving Quooker tap, which provides boiling water to order. The stone worktop centre island has ample space for a breakfast bar, plus there is an adjoining informal dining area and family sitting room.

The elegant drawing room comes with a charming focal point contemporary gas fireplace, and all the rooms to the rear of the house have French doors opening onto a deep rear paved terrace.

Upstairs in the main house are four double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, the Master’s being clad in sumptuous marble and accessed through a dressing room, fitted with a generous run of built in wardrobes.

On the second floor is bedroom five, a separate family bathroom and giant 35 ft plus playroom, already plumbed for a mini kitchen, so could make the perfect den for snack loving teenagers.

Energy efficient underfloor heating has been installed throughout the main house, along with an air extract ventilation system supported by air-source renewable energy heat pump technology. The adjoining triple garage has first floor accommodation, accessed by its own staircase, making an ideal staff or office suite.

With its secure gated entrance leading onto a wide paved forecourt, Kingswood House sits in a South West backing garden, stunningly landscaped and planted by Octagon’s horticultural consultants, and extending to 0.68 acres.

Kingswood House is priced at £3.95m and open weekends for viewing between 10am – 4pm. Alternatively, to make an appointment please contact Savills on 01494 725636 or click here for further details.
