Ready to put your own stamp on a house with great bones? This Edwardian family home on a pretty corner plot in Gerrards Cross has potential in spades – but can you guess how much it costs?
Built around 1909, Hillsborough Lodge has an impressive level plot – hello, light-filled corner with long driveway! – with plenty of space to expand and create your dream home. Inside, you’re looking at over 2,500 square feet of space to play with, and a blank canvas to add your own decor personality to.
Downstairs, there’s a large kitchen with massive windows (to best take advantage of that gorgeous green view, naturally) and an attached utility room. With built-in appliances, neutral cabinetry and decor, it’s ready to use ASAP.
On the other side of the large hallway, you’re looking at three reception rooms – a family living room and light and airy dining room, each with their own fireplace, and a study that the current owners are using as a music room with great views of the garden.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms that are ideal for a family, all beautifully finished in neutral tones (although I think a pop of colour or statement wallpaper would work perfectly). There’s also a large family bathroom with a bath, and another bathroom with separate loo (ideal if you want to designate one for kids, one for adults).
Now you’ve whet your whistle, how much do you think it costs? Drop your guesses in the comments below, and then head to the Strutt & Parker website to see if you’re right (no peeking!).
