Vale House is a fantastic family home situated at the end of its own long private gated drive in a private road in the highly sought after location of Loudwater. Rickmansworth station is 1.5 miles away and provides both the Metropolitan Line to London Baker Street and The City and the Chiltern Turbo to Marylebone. Rickmansworth town centre has an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and the food halls of Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and Tesco too. There is an excellent selection of schools within the area, both state and private. Loudwater is a beautiful location with the river Chess running through its centre. Leisure pursuits are well catered for with the renowned Moor Park Golf Club as well as the public course at Rickmansworth. Chorleywood
Common also has a 9 hole golf course and picturesque walks and
bridle paths and of course there is the popular Rickmansworth
Aquadrome with sailing, play areas and walks. Access to the M25 is at junction 18 with connections to the wider motorway network.


Vale House has been enjoyed by the present owners for over 30
years and it has been sympathetically extended and modernised, and maintained to provide versatile accommodation over three floors.

The house is situated in a secluded location tucked away up a long private drive and there is a beautiful wisteria to the front providing a warm welcome.

Behind the feature front door is a practical wood floor and stairs to the first floor and there is also a tiled cloakroom. There is a lovely triple aspect sitting room with a focal fireplace, french doors open onto the rear garden.

At the centre of the house is the large kitchen/breakfast/family room which is fitted with a range of built-in painted wooden units with granite and wood work tops and an Aga. A fitted dresser sits nicely near the breakfast area and this opens into a lovely snug. There is a large separate utility room with good larder space and a separate boiler room. Next to the family area is a room used as a hobbies room/dining room with an excellent range of built-in cupboards. This in turn leads to the study/office with french doors to a sunny afternoon terrace.

Upstairs there is a triple aspect master bedroom with views over the valley and a generous en suite bathroom.

The guest bedroom is the far side and also has views across the valley and an excellent en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on this floor sharing the fully tiled en suite wet room and separate cloakroom.

On the second floor the stairs open into the games room/den with two double bedrooms either side - a great floor for older children.

Vale House stands on a lovely plot with fine views to the front. There is a long driveway to the triple garage with gravelled/tarmac parking for several cars. In front of the garage is a specimen Kentucky coffee tree. There is a well stocked mature border behind the garaging and a gate to the rear garden. This has been well laid out with a fine terrace, ideal for entertaining with feature borders and a pond leading to the lawn with shrub/hedge boundaries providing a real feel of privacy. To the
side of the lawn is a fabulous summerhouse with light and power and a wild area of garden to the rear. Set at the end of the garden is a timber storage shed and a useful fenced area which could be an ideal vegetable patch.

Square Footage: 3,183 sq ft
