Hidden gem in the heart of Beaconsfield with the benefit of stunning gardens and ample parking including a double garage.
Originally built in about 1926 as a school for around 45 pupils, New Gregorys is now a converted, contemporary family home enjoying immense character with an array of original features and bespoke, thoughtful detailing throughout. The renovation, designed by London architects Baynes and Mitchell, has transformed New Gregorys into a stunning five bedroom home, ideal for both family life and entertaining, but also with privacy in mind.
On the ground floor a large, welcoming reception hall adjoins most of the main spaces in the house including the kitchen, study, living and dining rooms. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room, with French doors on to the garden, is beautifully appointed with a central island, integrated appliances and a gas fired AGA. There is a breakfast bar, seating area and plenty of space for a table. Just off the kitchen is a larder and separate boot room with adjacent cloakroom. The kitchen also leads through to the family room, overlooking the garden. Of particular note is the stunning living room, known as the grand hall, full of character having been the original school gymnasium, and enjoys double height ceilings, original oak flooring, school radiators, gym ropes and a wonderful minstrels gallery above. An adjacent formal dining room is cleverly separated by partition doors, allowing for privacy or to create a larger entertaining space.
The principal bedroom suite, on the east facing side of the house, is a secluded, self contained duplex design with a large luxurious bathroom and dressing area downstairs and a bedroom with a further extensive dressing area upstairs. On the west side, the first floor consists of three further bedrooms, one with an en suite and all enjoying access to a balcony. There is also a cinema room, which could be an additional bedroom, a family bathroom with steam shower and a laundry room. Stairs lead to the second floor comprising a bedroom with a spacious en suite shower room, and a charming eaves area, divided into three separate spaces, currently used as an office, music room and store area.
Electric gates open on to a large gravelled parking area at the front of the house with ample parking and a double garage. The gardens wrap around the house and are beautifully landscaped, with external lighting and an irrigation system. To the front is a charming gated courtyard, with a garden store/shed to the side, and to the rear an elegant southerly facing garden, with areas of lawn and a terrace adjoining the house providing ideal outside entertaining space.
