Property flirt! A new-build country house in Chalfont St Giles
New year, new build! If you're after a fresh start in 2022, then this 5-bedder in a pretty Bucks village could be right up your street - but can you guess the price?
If you’re dreaming of a new place to hang your hat (aren’t we all – did you know property searches double in the week between Christmas and New Year?), then may we present this total stunner in a secluded gated development in Chalfont St Giles?
Banwell House is a brand new home packed with all the luxury finishes and mod cons a girl could want, not to mention bags of space – hello, open-plan kitchen-diner! This whopping 29 ft by 21 ft room boasts hand-built bespoke German kitchen cabinetry, Corian stone worktops and Siemens appliances, as well as huge bi-folding doors to take in the light from the garden. Just imagine the entertaining possibilities both indoors and out…
As well as the kitchen-diner, there are three other reception rooms downstairs including a study (ideal if you’re WFH like half the country currently), a family room that could be used as a separate diner or snug for the kids, and an excellently-sized living room with access to the garden and plenty of natural light.
Head upstairs and you have four bedrooms, with a family bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom both kitted out with Philippe Starck & Hans Grohe sanitary ware and Porcelanosa porcelain tiles (we’re particular fans of the double basin here at Muddy – no elbowing your other half for mirror access here). Everything is delightfully neutral and spa-like, just waiting for you to add your own stamp to it.
There’ll be no road noise keeping you up all hours here, either – Banwell House is part of the new gated Penwynne Farm development, which has just four other properties (as well as stretching countryside views).
If you’re not familiar with Chalfont St Giles, then you’ll want to brush up pronto – the Chalfonts villages have long been popular with film legends, rock stars and politicians for their chocolate box charm and links to Amersham, Gerrards Cross and London.
With a location this good and being available for occupation right away, Banwell House is a surefire hit for 2022’s property market – but how much do you think it costs? Leave your guesses in the comments below and then head to the Strutt & Parker website to see if you were right!
