We haven’t done a ‘Span’ for a while, so this 1960s property on the Eric Lyons-designed Cedar Chase estate in Taplow, Buckinghamshire is a welcome addition to the market.
Cedar Chase is a Span development of 24 houses dating from between 1964 and 1966 and in around 5 acres of landscaped gardens. The agent describes it as ‘one of the most attractive and best kept’ of the thirty estates built by Span in Britain, something certainly borne out by the photos of the estate.
This particular property has originality on its side, perhaps because it has only ever had two owners. That’s definitely going to be a selling point.
Indeed, you’ll notice the original wood parquet flooring as you enter via entrance hall, which also has an original built-in mirror. That leads onto the living room with full height glazed doors, the dining room, a modern kitchen, a utility room and a WC.
Head up to the first floor and you will be greeted by the double-aspect master bedroom with a ‘high raked ceiling’ and views over green belt land towards Windsor. Also found there is a a built-in 1960s desk unit and bed head unit. Two further bedrooms complete the space, along with a family bathroom.
Head outside and there is a rear garden with courtyard terrace area along with a south-facing walled garden with lawn and ‘established plantings’. Go beyond the back gate and you have access to around five acres of mature landscaped private grounds, shared with the other property owners.
If all of that appeals, the asking price is £490,000.
