A highly desirable chain-free three-bedroom period cottage conveniently located on the village green next to the school. This exceptional home has been tastefully refurbished and extended yet retains all its character and charm, and benefits from a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room which is flooded with natural light. The master bedroom has idyllic views and an en-suite bathroom on the second floor. This mid-terrace property has a delightful cottage garden with a garage, and it is within easy reach of the M25 (J18), and just a short distance to Chorleywood and Rickmansworth Underground stations.
ON THE GROUND FLOOR:
The front door leads into the sitting/dining room and features a working open brick fireplace and bay window to the front. A fitted cupboard conveniently houses the gas, electricity meters and fuse board. Stairs lead to the first floor. The dining area to the rear has views through to the stylish and cleverly designed breakfast area with a window to the garden and a skylight allowing natural light to fill both rooms. The double aspect kitchen has been fitted with cream units, granite worktop with integrated drainer for the stainless-steel sink and granite splashback for the gas hob with a stainless-steel extractor hood above. There's an integrated electric oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and a cupboard housing the washing machine and tumble drier. The Worcester Bosch combination boiler (fitted in 2013) is also housed in one of the kitchen cupboards. A stable-style wooden back door leads to the garden. Slate tiles to the floor complete this cleverly designed extension.
ON THE FIRST FLOOR:
A single bedroom to the rear makes an ideal study and a double bedroom to the front with sash windows offers views across the village Green. There is also a useful storage cupboard on the landing. The family bathroom has a white suite with fixed rainfall showerhead over a small bath with hinged glass shower screen, high gloss marble tiles to the floor and walls, together with a mirrored cabinet with lighting.
ON THE SECOND FLOOR:
A staircase leads to the master bedroom with a Velux window offering idyllic views to the countryside beyond. There is a fitted wardrobe and storage cupboards that have been incorporated into the eaves and space for a wall mounted TV. The en-suite bathroom has a white suite with shower over the bath, high gloss marble tiles to the floor and walls and mirrored cabinet with lighting.
The front garden has a low brick wall to the boundary, a small lawn, shrub border and path to the front door.
The pretty rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with an island flower bed, wooden fence to one side and mixed hedging to the other side. An area of decking adjacent to the house provides the ideal place to entertain and eat outdoors. The single garage is at the end of the garden with a door for access from here, in addition to a right of way for a vehicle to access the garage via a private road to the right-hand side of the row of cottages.
