This landmark Grade II* period home sits at the heart of one of Hertfordshire's most favoured villages, in need of complete renovation; with active planning for a kitchen extension.
Pictured in Pevsner The buildings of Hertfordshire this delightful and charming home still retains the jewels of the past with hidden painted Tudor walls behind feature panelling. On entering through the front doors you are welcomed to a bright reception hall with access direct to the beautifully maintained garden. The hall also has a coat cupboard and access to the large cellar.
On either side of the hall is the formal dining room, and drawing room respectively, with an additional third reception room currently used as a family room/study. To the southern side of the house is a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and a door leading to the rear lobby.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC centred around the part galleried landing. There are two staircases to access the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and various eaves storage areas.
Externally, the house sits in a mature and beautifully landscaped garden extending to around 0.75 of an acre. Within these grounds sit a range of outbuildings providing storage, garaging and utility areas. The rear of the garden backs onto paddocks and there is an area set aside for a vegetable plot.
Amongst the grounds are various mature fruit trees and other shrubs with neatly trimmed lawns and flower bed borders. Across the rear of the house is a charming covered loggia which enjoys a westerly aspect over the gardens.
