Built circa 1715, Elmodesham House is a Grade II listed building with a rich and varied history and has had many guises in the past including a boarding school and Council Chamber. Following the sale of the house in 1986, it was converted into twelve flats and mews houses.
Elmodesham House still retains many of its original features and during the work, a beautiful painted ceiling was discovered and restored, which has been attributed to James Thornhill.
Number eight offers everything that you would expect from house of this era. High ceilings and gorgeously deep windows bring light and grandeur to this mews house, along with the exquisite Georgian panelling. There is solid oak flooring through main living area with slate flooring/under floor heating in the kitchen and bathroom. This elegant apartment has well laid out accommodation comprising entrance hall, cloakroom, one reception room, kitchen/breakfast room (with integrated washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer), double bedroom and bathroom with bath/shower cubicle.
A community in itself, Elmodesham House enjoys the best of both worlds - set in the heart of the historic old town, yet superbly set back from the High Street in a tranquil courtyard environment with a sunny south westerly aspect. In addition to this there is allocated parking (a rarity in the old town), with expansive communal gardens at the end of estate, maintained to a high standard.

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 High Wycombe, 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 just one mile away and runs regular trains to London Marylebone or into Baker Street on the Metropolitan line (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.
