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 two offers everything that you would expect from a apartment of this era. High ceilings and gorgeous big bright windows bring light and grandeur to this dual aspect property, along with its exquisite Georgian frontage. This elegant apartment has well laid out accommodation comprising a large panelled reception room with feature fireplace and a separate study area overlooking the communal gardens. The kitchen includes granite work tops and integrated appliances. The master bedroom has twin sash windows with window seats and built in wardrobes and the recently remodelled shower room features polished plaster walls and heated floor.
Outside, communal gardens lead to a garage block at the rear where there is a single allocated garage with fitted storage cupboards and an additional parking space.
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 in front of the private single garage, with expansive communal gardens at the end of the estate, maintained to a high very 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.
