Superbly presented home backing onto greenbelt fields
This attractive period house is located in Batchworth Heath on a private road with views over fields to the rear and a copse to the front. Despite having a semi-rural feel, the house is well situated for both Northwood and Rickmansworth town centres while the nearest Metropolitan Line station is found approximately 1.3 miles away in Moor Park.
The owners have extended and refurbished the property to a high standard and it now offers a compelling blend of period charm and modern fitments and convenience, all presented in excellent decorative order. The sedum roofed kitchen/family room extension to the rear is a particular feature and is sure to be the heart of the house for most incoming buyers.
An entrance lobby leads to the sitting room with fireplace with log burner and storage cupboard. Behind this, double doors open to an inner hallway with staircase, extensive storage and coat cupboards. To the rear of the house is a fantastic kitchen/family room with underfloor heating and extensive glazing with electric blinds offering enviable views of the gardens. The stylish kitchen by KBA Kitchens is fitted in a shaker style and painted in Farrow and Ball colours. Integrated appliances include double full height Neff fridge and freezers, dishwasher, and electric range oven with induction hob. A large island unit houses a sink and further Neff combination microwave electric oven with grill. The room affords space for both dining and seating areas and has an inset electric living flame fire. Pocket doors give access to a large dining room with inglenook style fireplace and gas living flame fire. Also on the ground floor is a boot room, study and bathroom.
A very generous principal bedroom suite occupies one half of the first floor and has its own staircase access. The space comprises a bedroom with wardrobes and window to rear, dressing room with wardrobes, en suite shower room with rainwater showerhead and further storage room with fitted shoe racks.
The second and third bedroom have a landing accessed from their own staircase and the second bedroom has wardrobes and an en suite shower room with rainwater shower head. The third bedroom has wardrobes and interconnecting doors to the main bedroom, giving flexibility of use as a further dressing room or nursery.
The gardens are just as well maintained as the house and have the benefit of facing south and back onto fields which often contain horses. The gardens are set up for entertaining and to take advantage of the southerly aspect, with two large paved patio areas, neat lawns, sleeper enclosed flower beds and attractive brick and flint walling. There is also an outhouse providing storage in three separate parts.
To the front of the house is a driveway with parking for three cars and access to the integral garage. The garage has an electrically operated up and over door, newly fitted Worcester gas boiler and a fitted utility area to the rear with space and plumbing for washer and drier. There is also a water softener. A door opens into a covered and gated side passageway that runs from front to rear of the house and gives access to the house through the boot room.
