A stunning conversion of a substantial former industrial building with 3 floors of open plan living space based on the theme of New York loft style living - in total circa 6,000 sq ft
Higham Road is a mixture of residential and commercial buildings on the edge of Chesham town centre with its pedestrianised High street providing every day shopping facilities, as well as Sainsbury and Waitrose food stores. Nearby Lowndes Park and duck pond setting offers recreational and leisure pursuits. The Metropolitan line station provides a London commuter service to Baker Street in less than one hour. The area is renowned for its excellent educational facilities including Chesham Grammar School, Dr Challoner's Grammar School for boys in Amersham
and High School for girls in Little Chalfont.
The Old Lancôme Factory is a substantial former industrial building, the name derived from when it was occupied by Lancôme, the famous international French fragrance company. It has since been lovingly and skilfully converted, with meticulous attention to design and finish, to create three distinct levels of capacious open plan living space, based on the theme of New York/Manhattan loft-style living.
The stunning result, with features including exposed rafters, iron pillars and vaulted roof, retaining the integrity and rawness', of the original building, provides a total of 6,000 sq ft of space, divided equally over the three levels. The huge space on each level can be adapted and utilised to a buyer's own requirements and overall provides a wonderful environment for both home working and entertaining.
An internal steel staircase provides access to each level, with a second external staircase as an alternative in an emergency. The middle floor is currently the main living space with a well equipped stainless steel commercial style kitchen at the far end, and an adjacent laundry facility.
There are two bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first, served by two luxurious well appointed bath/shower rooms.
The entrance is well screened behind electrically operated entrance gates which together with a high tech CCTV system provides high security. These open onto a forecourt providing off- street parking. The rear provides a walled courtyard-style area including decking for relaxing and al-fresco entertaining.
Note: All artwork including the wardrobe doors off the living room and cupboard doors in the shower rooms are excluded from the sale.
