Shardeloes - building and history
A landmark as much as a national treasure. This Grade I listed building presides over Amersham and provided suitably ostentatious accommodation for the staggeringly wealthy Lord of the Manor for whom it was built.
The grandest names in architecture, house and garden design are associated with Shardeloes. Forward thinking Stiff Leadbetter Robert Adam, Humphrey Repton and Capability Brown all have links with this imposing building.
Its grand beginnings, Grand National scandal and a fragile future after the Second World War when threatened with demolition rightly identify this as one of Amersham's most interesting assets.
Classic lines and influences from Roman and Greek architecture give Shardeloes its grand façade. With probably the finest view in Amersham, Shardeloes stands in approximately 50 acres of land. The gardens themselves incorporating the picturesque lake, were Grade II listed in 1987 and overlook woodland, hills and copses across the Misbourne Valley.
During the Second World War Shardeloes was used as a maternity unit and more than 3000 babies were born there including Sir Tim Rice.
Without parallel in its elevated position, any resident of Shardeloes will look out on the same tended and staggeringly beautiful view that residents have done for over 300 years.
Easy, contemporary décor in this first-floor luxury apartment cannot disguise the classic lines and timeless design of Shardeloes.
It's no overstatement to say the outlook is magnificent. Breath-taking and unparalleled views reaching far across the valley and lake are testament to generations of care and attention.
Its elegant décor is entirely fitting for the style and age of the house; rooms are generously-sized and despite its evident grandeur, the apartment has an undoubtedly homely feel.
The luxurious and ultra-modern kitchen; bespoke bathrooms; private parking and the master bedroom with en-suite show the apartment to accommodate all aspects of 21st century living.
In addition, the communal tended grounds in excess of 200 acres and stunning countryside walks leave little to the imagination.
Thoughtful and intelligent conversion alone ensures this apartment possesses the most vital elements; the grandeur and appeal of a house this age and stature and supremely suitable accommodation for any resident hoping to have it all.

There is a good reason why Old Amersham is such a desirable location - for couples, families, businesses, TV and film companies.
An ancient market town, it is one of the few to hold an annual Charter Fair (each September) instated in the 13th century; it is the location for scenes in Four Weddings and a Funeral, episodes of Midsomer Murders and more recently Celebrity Masterchef; there are meeting and eating places to satisfy all tastes and educational facilities which are second to none in the country.
The location, which borders a rural landscape, also has a cosmopolitan feel that is enhanced by the boutique shops, independent retailers and coffee shops. A wider range of shopping and eating is in larger nearby towns such as Aylesbury, Watford and HighWycombe, all within a 35 minute drive from Old Amersham.
Essential links to London by road and rail are convenient and close by. Amersham Station is under a mile away and runs regular trains to London Marylebone on the Chiltern line or the Metropolitan line into Baker Street which takes just 35 minutes).
The M40 and M25 are within ten minutes' drive from the property giving easy access to all other areas whether travelling in or further out.
Not to be underestimated are the delights of the local area. Open farms, museums, fetes, carnivals and farmers' markets make this thoroughly country but with a feel of being on the edge of the city.
