Kingsford House is an attractive building of just four apartments situated off a central entrance hallway and landing.
The apartment is situated on the ground floor. The sitting room is at the front, with a high ceiling, and a striking large multi-pane bay window. Stairs lead down to the converted basement room which is now the kitchen. This is a generous area with plenty of room for a dining table; the kitchen units have recently been refitted with integrated appliances.
The bedroom is to the rear, off the ground floor, again with a lovely high ceiling and full length fitted wardrobes. There is an oversized window overlooking the garden.
The rear of Kingsford House has an elegant canopy providing some shade from the southerly aspect. The garden is communal and also provides residents' parking.
Kingsford House is situated in the heart of the Benson. Benson is a highly regarded village, the River Thames and Benson Lock is close-by and there is a useful selection of shops in the village including a Co-Op store, Pharmacy, and No25 - a very nice independent coffee shop. The Three Horseshoes is the local pub and there is a larger pub/restaurant, The Crown, plus a fish and chip shop and takeaway. There are a variety of other independent shops including a barber, hairdresser and health centre and village church, St. Marys. All combine to create a vibrant village centre and welcoming community feel. The well-regarded Waterfront Café is on the edge of the village and has a wonderful reputation for al fresco dining by the river.
The surrounding countryside is beautiful with the Chiltern hills close and some lovely walks from the village itself, into the hills or along the river.
