A two bedroom penthouse apartment set within a magnificent Georgian mansion commanding spectacular views and standing in formal grounds and parkland of about 50 acres on the rural fringe of Amersham Old Town overlooking the valley of the River Misbourne.

Shardeloes is a quintessential Grade I listed building of special architectural and historic interest set in around 50 acres of parkland grounds overlooking a lake and Misbourne valley on the edge of Amersham Old Town. The present mansion was once the ancestral home of the Tyrwhitt-Drake family. The Lord of the Manor, William Drake, had the house built between 1758 and 1766, mainly designed by Stiff Leadbetter from Eton who was among a group of architects responding to changing fashion within Country Houses. Wanting the latest dÈcor Drake engaged the rising architect Robert Adam to complete much of the decoration and plasterwork. Further interior work was carried out by James Wyatt from 1773. The house was finally built of stuccoed brick, one and a half storeys high, with a top balustrade and a grand pedimented portico of stone, with Corinthian columns and pilasters in the "Palladian" style.

Subsequently, the house and its adjoining stable block were beautifully and sympathetically restored and converted into apartments and houses in the 1970s, with all owners sharing the freehold. The Estate is Listed Grade I.

Set in the Chilterns, a picturesque and protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Amersham is a vibrant town which offers a superb balance between commuter convenience (the Metropolitan and Chiltern lines offering prompt service to Central London are located about 2.5 miles from the property) and easy access to the surrounding countryside. Historic Old Amersham, set in the valley of the River Misbourne, with a 13th century parish church of St. Mary, characterful old public houses, coaching inns, restaurants and boutique shops and Amersham-on-the-Hill, which grew with the advent of the railway station in the early part of the 20th century which now contains the main shopping area with supermarkets, food halls, restaurants, bars, leisure and sporting facilities.
