A fabulous three/four bedroom ground floor apartment forming part of this stunning regency mansion dating from 1898 and built for Lady Ela Sackville Russell, the daughter of the 9th Duke of Bedford.
The property was sympathetically converted into apartments in the late 1990's. The house retains a wealth of character features including fireplaces, wood panelling and high ceilings that contribute to the overall feeling of grandeur. Accessed from the ground floor there is a large wood panelled sitting room/dining room with windows overlooking the communal grounds, a stunning master bedroom with feature fireplace and an en-suite bathroom. There are also 2 further bedrooms before the large (18'4 x 17'9) open plan kitchen with doors onto a private courtyard. There is a further bedroom, bathroom and sitting room in all in excess of 2,200 Sq. ft.
The property is 1 mile away from the lively centre of Chorleywood, which has a good selection of local suppliers, such as a butcher, baker, bookshop and newsagent, combined with a variety of cafes and restaurants. The mainline station is within the town centre and usefully serves both the Chiltern mainline and Metropolitan underground. Nearby schooling is of a high calibre, with the ‘Good’ local primary school half a mile away, in addition to Merchant Taylors School for Boys, the Royal Masonic School for Girls and the Watford Grammar Schools. Chorleywood Common is worthy of special mention, encompassing 200 acres of wooded common land. Chorleywood golf course maintains a nine hole course on the common as is the Chorleywood Cricket club for seniors and juniors. Moor Park golf course and The Grove, one of South East England’s top Country Clubs and golf courses, are a short drive away.
There are three private parking spaces to the front of the house, with plenty of additional 'visitor parking'. The house is in the midst of extensive formal gardens and historic parkland extending down to the Chess valley.
