Location

Constables Cottage is situated in an elevated position overlooking Chorleywood Common.

Access to the M25 is at either junction 17 or 18, with connections to the airports and motorway network. There is an excellent choice of schooling within the area, both state and private.

Description

Situated in grounds of approximately 0.3 of an acre, Constables
Cottage is believed to date from the late 17th century and in former times it has been a public house and then the Police Constable's home with a "lock-up" in the garden.

The property is entered through a covered porch into the dining hall which has oak flooring, beamed ceiling and stairs to the first floor serving the master bedroom, bedrooms two and three. To the front is a cosy triple aspect snug with oak flooring and a beamed ceiling. Off the large dining hall there is a family room with cast iron wood burner, quarry tiled floor and door to the garden. The sitting room has a feature inglenook fireplace with quarry tiled hearth and bench seats on either side. Off the rear hallway is a second staircase to the first floor, door to the kitchen and conservatory which has double doors onto a small terrace. The kitchen has a gas AGA, stainless steel sink unit and
a range of wall and base units. There is a useful cellar which can be accessed from externally or internally.

On the first floor the master bedroom enjoys fabulous views over Chorleywood Common and has a pretty cast iron fireplace, a range of fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom. Bedroom two overlooks the Common and has two useful storage cupboards. A second staircase provides access to two further bedrooms. Bedroom three is a double aspect room with a recessed shower enclosure, sink and low level w.c. Bedroom four is located on the second floor and enjoys superb views over Chorleywood Common.

Outside - Constables Cottage enjoys an enviable position and is set in delightful landscaped gardens which are mainly laid to lawn and flanked by mature hedges and trees providing privacy and seclusion. The gardens feature a pond with cascading waterfall, a brick-built arbour, caged vegetable plot and a well. The original police constable's 'lock up' still remains and could be used as an artist's studio. To the front of the property there is a driveway providing off street parking for several vehicles, a detached double garage with electric up and over door, a utility/workshop and further storage units.

Square Footage: 2,337 sq ft
