Chalk Dell House is a substantial five bedroom detached family home which was originally built in 1912 set within an acre plot on the edge of Rickmansworth town centre on the way to Northwood. Extended in recent years, the property also includes an indoor swimming pool and a versatile range of garages housing up to twenty five vehicles. The front door opens into an enclosed porch which in turn opens to the elegant sitting room which has a feature fireplace with open fire and a built in gas starter. Bi-fold doors open to the study and is a perfect room for working from home and boasts a bespoke range of fitted cupboards, shelving and a matching desk. French doors open to the terrace. The dining room has a feature Art Deco fireplace, space for a large dining table and enjoys views over the front garden. From the sitting room is an inner hall through to the study and kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room is certainly the 'hub' of the house and has a large granite island with an inset two ring gas hob with contemporary extractor above and an inset sink. There is an integrated dishwasher, single oven with a separate warming drawer, microwave and coffee machine. A Sandyford traditionally-crafted gas range cooker is set within the brick fireplace. The back wall of the kitchen still has the original floor to ceiling pine cupboards and servants' bells. The window seat and large breakfast area have views over the rear gardens.

The rear gardens are a true delight; private, interesting and thoughtfully landscaped. Lawned grounds extend away from the house and are interspersed with well stocked herbaceous borders. Part way down the garden is an indoor pool with a swim jet, electric cover, a gym area, wet room and cloakroom. There is also a koi carp pond with a water feature.
