First time on the market for the Longwood 1960s midcentury property in Chorleywood, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.
It shows too. This really is a time capsule, a house that could be from a mid-1960s brochure. But this is a house built in 1965 as it stands in 2015. 50 years has come and gone, but little has altered beyond these four walls.
Longwood sits in a conservation area and within an acre of land. The agents points to the potential of a new home or an extended property in its place. We hope someone falls for it like we have and keeps it pretty much as it is. But with land such a commodity these days, we’re not confident.
So let’s enjoy it while it’s here. The distinctive shape. the long, sloping roof, the exposed brick, the wood panelling, wood panel walls, even that vintage kitchen. All worthy of your appreciation.
As for the space, that is currently laid out with a reception hall, cloakroom, study, drawing room with sliding doors to the garden, dining room, morning room and kitchen on the ground floor.
Head up a level and you’ll find the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a door to a very large eaves storage area.
As we mentioned, a vast amount of outdoor space too, including a private driveway which opens into a large parking area for several cars and the main gardens with lawn, fruit trees, hedging, a paved terrace, loggia, a double garage, single car port and a stable.
£1,750,000 is the asking price.
