Acquired in the winter of 2010 and then painstakingly restored and renovated over the following three years. The intentions of our clients were simple - to rebuild a dream, period home by combining modern features while maintaining the beauty of an 1836 British Regency property.
Specialist builders, architects, engineers and craftsmen worked tirelessly to complete the landmark project. Little expense was spared in the restoration and interior design of this great house, but ultimately business commitments necessitated that our clients relocate to Singapore and with great reluctance and sadness the property now has to be sold.
Fronted by electronic gates that would do justice to an Ambassadorial residence, The Dower House stands proud. A piece of English history…. a magnificent nine bedroom Regency house. Comprising nearly 6,000 sq ft (550 sq m) and rooted in excess of 1.6 acres with tennis court and panoramic views over the surrounding Hertfordshire countryside.
The Dower House is easily accessible to central London - only 20 minutes by rail and 9 miles by road. Also within easy reach are some of the finest schools in Hertfordshire, including Haberdasher’s Aske’s for both boys and girls and Aldenham School.
Elstree Aerodrome and the fabulous Aldenham Country Park are also nearby, as are the M25 and M1 motorways. The Into Shopping Centre at Watford is approximately 6 miles away.
