The story

Pulling back the bi-folding doors on to the sunny garden, Ann and Michael Allen step out on to the terrace for lunch. Their outstanding home has been designed to offer exceptional indoor and outdoor living, with space to relax, dine and entertain both inside and out. Rhodene has been their home for almost 40 years now and has been a wonderful place to enjoy with their family. "It has been a lovely home," Ann admits. "It is a great place for children: our two daughters loved having parties here when they were in their teens and now my grandchildren enjoy it too. It is a wonderful house and the garden is beautiful and private. We will miss everything about it when we leave."

GREAT LOCATION
Rhodene, which is slightly elevated, was built in 1935 and has only ever had three sets of owners. The Allens were living in Denham when they first went to look at the house. "I saw it in the paper and then drove around looking for it - we had always thought this was such a nice road," she recalls. "We then came to see it and my husband said he loved it: it was the right property and in the right area." The Denham location of Rhodene suited the family well. "It was good to find somewhere with all the benefits of living in a village and yet also within easy reach of motorways and Denham Green Station," she adds.

EXCELLENT SPACE
Over the decades they have lived at Rhodene, they have enhanced the home significantly. "We extended within the first year or so of being here," Ann recalls. "Then later on - when my husband bought a snooker table and we needed somewhere to put it - we enlarged the house again." Today, Rhodene offers very generous living space. The entrance hall at the front gives into a bay-fronted snug to the left and the large, open-plan family and dining room to the right. The kitchen is at the centre of the house while at the back, spanning almost the entire width of the property, is the drawing room with its bi-folding doors. There is also a utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor.

OPEN AND AIRY
Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms, together with the family bathroom, which has a shower and a bath. The long master bedroom has its own en suite washroom and dressing area. Rhodene has a spacious, airy feeling throughout, Ann observes: "I love the open-plan feel on the ground floor, and the way the house opens up on to the garden," she admits. "Everything is painted in pale colours to make the most of the natural light - the back room is especially light, with its bi-folding doors and skylight windows."

FLEXIBLE ROOMS
The generous space at Rhodene means there is always somewhere to relax quietly or to welcome friends and family. "We tend to be in the back room most of the time, where we like to have all the doors and windows open on a fine day," she says. "In the mornings, however, it is nice to sit in the front room, which is east-facing; this also doubles up as a bedroom for when our grandchildren come to stay." This room has been a very flexible space over the years - it has been a dining room, sitting room and playroom. "We have changed it around a lot over the years, depending on our requirements at the time," she adds.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS
The house is cool in summer and warm in winter, she adds. "It is a very easy home to live in, especially as the kitchen is in the middle of the house." Numerous parties have been held at Rhodene. "The girls have had their parties and there have been lots of family occasions here too," she says. Visitors have found it easy to reach the house and the family have enjoyed their proximity to the station, enabling them to pop down to London whenever they choose. "It only takes 20 minutes to get into Marylebone," Ann points out. "We can also get to places like Oxford and Henley very easily, and it is great to be within easy reach of Heathrow Airport if you want to be able to hop on a plane and head off somewhere else."

Setting the scene

The property is approached over a paved brick drive, where there is parking for numerous cars and which has access to the garage. The level rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and plenty of places to sit out. The garden is enclosed by hedging and has well-stocked flower borders.

Whats nearby

Known for its friendly and thriving community spirit, Denham Village survives as a peaceful and unspoiled oasis of rural calm, despite being less than 20 miles from Westminster. There are five pubs, some serving food, such as The Swan Inn gastro-pub as well as dedicated restaurants such as Biggles and The Falcon Inn. Fran's Cottage is a tea shop with home-made cakes set by the canal and only accessible by foot through the woods or by canal barge. Because of this fantastically convenient position and its beautiful historic architecture, this highly photogenic village is very popular with many showbiz and political celebrities alike.

Within easy reach

Denham is convenient for access to London with both the A40 and an excellent train service that takes you into London Marylebone in approximately 20 minutes. Access to the M25, A40, M4, M1 and A40 are all within a 10 mile radius providing good access to Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted Airports. Private and commercial pilots can also use nearby Denham Aerodrome. Denham Country Park offers many opportunities for informal recreation and the famous Denham Golf Club is reputedly the only golf course to have its own railway station. Buckinghamshire and Middlesex are renowned for excellent schooling, in both the state and public sectors.
