This property was once used as a factory by the famous French beauty brand Lancôme. It has now been converted into a Manhattan loft style living space, whilst still preserving the rawness of the original building through exposed rafters, vaulted roofs and iron pillars.

Located in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, the 6,000 square feet property has three distinct and versatile living spaces spread across three floors. It is an open planned house great for both entertaining and working from home.
