This is one of our Country Houses
This impressive modern family home sits in a key residential no through road off a rural lane. The house benefits from a contemporary interior and has been improved and enhanced by the present owners, noticeably with the addition of an impressive self-contained 41’ leisure complex. The house has an attractive sense of style and comfort with beautifully designed and planned entertaining areas, both inside and outside.
The house is entered via a double front door, into a reception hall with a central staircase rising to a galleried landing. The heart of the house lies around the kitchen/breakfast room with a central island, which opens into an orangery via a pair of double doors. This generous family space consists of a dining area beneath the roof light, flanked by an informal sitting room. The drawing room has a more formal tone, with a central fireplace and a double aspect over the garden. Whilst the self-contained family room is ideal for either younger or older children, seeking a more private study or play area, with the adults able to use the separate study. The reception space to the house is very generous and is enhanced by the 33’ top floor games room. On the first floor, the master bedroom offers a walk in dressing room and en suite bathroom with separate shower, two guest suites and two further family bedrooms. Rising to the second floor is the games room and the sixth bedroom suite. This shower room has a double access, to the games room.
Ladywood House is an impressive family home, combining attractive interiors with welcoming and well-balanced living space over three floors.
Ladywood Close is the ideal combination of a semi-rural neighbourhood, conveniently sited on the edge of two significant towns, offering the best of both worlds. Sitting amongst other impressive modern mansions, this no through road runs
directly off Sarratt Lane, just under 3 miles from the centres of Chorleywood and Rickmansworth. These both offer a full range of amenities including independent coffee shops and cafes. A wealth of high calibre education is in close proximity, including: Merchant Taylors’ School for Boys, the Royal Masonic School for Girls; Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys and Haberdashers’ Aske’s Girls Schools; Harrow School and the Watford Grammar Schools. School coaches and transport are available for many of the above from Rickmansworth Station. Chorleywood, Rickmansworth and Croxley Stations offer fast commuter connections via Network Rail, the Chiltern Mainline and Metropolitan Underground.
Local points of interest include spectacular country walks through the Chess Valley and Chorleywood Common. The Common is homes to the village cricket club and golf club, while rugby, football and hockey clubs are present in Rickmansworth. The Grove is situated at Junction 19 of the M25, one of South East England’s finest country clubs and golf courses.
Generous level gardens are a key feature of the close, but where Ladywood House differs is their self-contained leisure complex in the southerly rear gardens. This includes a lovely heated swimming pool, with roof lights and its own changing facilities. Next to the leisure complex is an attractive timber built barbq area, with comfortable seating. Level lawns with mature specimen trees and shrubs, give the whole setting a high degree of seclusion and privacy and allows family life relaxation and enjoyment.
