Eden Lodge encapsulates the very essence of Victorian architecture. It is a wonderful period property, retaining many charming and original features (such as the brass door furniture) yet perfectly suited to contemporary living. Rooms are generously proportioned with high ceilings and engender a sense of space, often enhanced by attractive sash, bay windows.
A red brick garden path leads to steps approaching the house and the covered entrance. The bespoke stained glass window panes within the front door hint at what might lie behind: a classical, wide reception hall with wooden flooring and a dado rail. The principal reception rooms open off the hall with a traditional drawing room on one side (complete with open fireplace, oak mantelpiece and marble tiles) and the kitchen and dining room on the other. The latter features a 1920s mahogany fireplace. The orangery was added to the rear of the property in 2013. It has underfloor heating and bi-fold doors to the walled garden. There is an extensive cellar, part of which is attractively laid out for wine storage and has red, tiled flooring.
Rising to the first floor, the two bedrooms at the front of the property have large bay windows and fitted wardrobes. The master incorporates an en suite bathroom and the family bathroom is also located on this level. This is an “Art Deco” masterpiece. The fabulous black and white tiling and mirrored bath create an intriguing juxtaposition in this Victorian property.
The period staircase rises unbroken to the top floor and two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All bathrooms feature hansgrohe Rainmaker shower systems and underfloor heating. Uninterrupted views of the verdant walled garden so close to the centre of Rickmansworth can be enjoyed on this level.
Rickmansworth offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, with Watford a little further afield. Highly renowned Moor Park Golf Course is a short distance away, as is The Grove; one of south east England’s most prestigious country clubs. For the keen walker or runner, there is an extensive network of countryside footpaths in the vicinity.
There is a range of high calibre schools in close proximity to Eden Lodge, including Merchant Taylors’ School for boys; The Royal Masonic School for Girls; Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School; Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls; Harrow and the Watford Grammar Schools.

There is a sizeable potting shed and a double garage adjoining the house with stairs to a workshop above.
