An incredibly striking house, but this 1930s Stanley Hamp-designed Whitelands art deco property in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire has been updated considerably.
The house is grade II-listed, the work of Stanley Hamp of Collcutt and Hamp and dating back to 1934. At first glance, it might look like little has changed since that date. But you would be wrong to assume that.
According to the agent, the house has been ‘completely re-configured and converted’ by the current owners, the result being ‘fantastic accommodation designed for today’s families’.
Of course, that approach in a property like this immediately splits the audience. Much of the ‘shell’ is untouched, but period features look thin on the ground. If you want that, you might want to look elsewhere. or just change the decor and put some back in.
However, if you want some modern-era living essentials in a period building, this might be for you as it stands.
As for space, that starts with the the reception hall, leading towards the kitchen / breakfast / family room with a breakfast bar and built-in appliances. Beyond that are the other reception rooms, the (added) glass orangery / atrium looking out onto the rear gardens, the formal dining room, a separate TV / cinema room and a study, which also has a glass exterior.
On the first floor you will find the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
You also get a 0.45 acre plot, which includes an in-and-out driveway, the detached double garage and of course, the rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders and mature trees. There is also a summerhouse there too.
£2,250,000 is the guide price here.
