About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Country Houses

Although West Callipers is located just a few miles from Kings Langley and excellent commuter services into London, the property has a distinctly rural feel to it thanks, in large part, to the leafy approach to the house via an attractive country lane. Despite the bucolic setting, West Callipers was built in 2014 to a contemporary specification and features many state-of-art attributes such as underfloor heating throughout and a top-of the range sound system connected to all of the principal rooms.

Electrically-operated gates open onto a wide expanse of paved, driveway and lawn with a garden path leading to the front door and the spacious reception hall. The eye is drawn to the large kitchen/family room which flows round to the dining room, creating a generous space for both family life and entertaining. Bi-fold doors lead from the kitchen to the garden at the rear where there is an area of terrace overlooking the lawn. A conservatory graces the front of the house and the current owners are using it as gym. Most of the flooring on the ground floor is porcelain tiling and the banisters as well as many of the doors throughout the property are made of walnut, demonstrating a high level of craftsmanship.

Rising to the first floor, there is a magnificent galleried landing with a balcony to the front of the property, overlooking the attractive plantings set within the lawn and driveway. The landing is a wonderful, light-filled space and provides an appealing and opulent contrast to the walnut balustrade. There are five bedrooms on this level including the master suite which comprises a spacious dressing room and bathroom. The second floor could serve as either guest accommodation, space for an au pair or even as a teenage “retreat”.

Situation
Commonwood is a pretty village with delightful walks and a public house (Cart & Horses). Situated between the beautiful villages of Chipperfield and Sarratt which have a number of local shops catering for daily requirements. Kings Langley has a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities and greater amenities can be found in Watford and Hemel Hempstead. Kings Langley station provides a service into London and the M25 is approximately 3.5 miles distant. Rickmansworth and Chorleywood are a short drive away and there are stations with access to the Metropolitan Line and Chiltern Line train services.

Locally there are several golf courses and plenty of scope for walking and riding. Champneys health resort in Tring and the exclusive Grove Country Club in Watford are close at hand and offer exercise facilities, relaxation and spa therapies. The area is well served with private and state schools, including Berkhamsted and Watford Grammar schools.

Outside
West Callipers sits in a private position fairly centrally on its plot. Landscaped lawns wrap around the house and provide the perfect backdrop for a range of shrubs and trees including magnolia and cherry. There is ample parking space in addition to the two double garages, one of which adjoins two storage rooms.

One of the surprising and unique features of West Callipers is the charming 1950s folly; a miniature half-timbered ‘house’ with a tiled roof, reminiscent of a smaller version of the Liberty department store. Originally it was reputedly the property of the British Shoe Corporation. A tennis court could be built on the large, level space at the front of the property, subject to the usual planning consents.
