Pednor Chase is a substantial Edwardian family house with a range of outbuildings, situated along the ridge of Pednor. It sits well within its 20 acres (8 hectares) of formal gardens, grounds and paddocks.
Approached by a long rhododendron-flanked gravel drive, Pednor Chase is a pretty house with well-balanced accommodation of approximately 6,187 sq ft (575 sq m), with a further 4,484 sq ft (417 sq m) of outbuildings.
The house features elegant main rooms and period detailing, including wood panelling and large feature fireplaces. The accommodation is arranged principally over two floors, with a useful second floor space of further bedrooms and/or games rooms.
Built in the early 1900s, the property has some notable history. It was once the home to the Knollys family where Princess Alexandra was reputedly a frequent visitor in the early 20th Century. Her love of rhododendrons lead to the creation of the beautiful rhododendron drive. In the 1980s the house was home to Gary Kurtz, the producer of the original Star Wars movie from 1977.
Approximately 1.8km away from the planned route, the property is unaffected by the proposed HS2 civil engineering project. A detailed route map and further information are available upon request.
The gardens have some very beautiful trees – a magnificent cedar and ancient oak among them and an ornamental pond stocked with koi carp. The property also has a floodlit tennis court, large outdoor heated swimming pool, several stables and a large annexe as well as various outbuildings.
The property and grounds, in particular the tractor shed, offer considerable scope for further development, subject to the necessary consents.
