About this property

  • This impressive detached property seamlessly incorporates a Grade II-listed lodge dating back to the 1830s and more modern additions from the 1970s. The property was once the former lodge house to the neighbouring St Ibbs House and offers considerable character, with its thatched roof, handsome arched windows and doors, half-panelled walls and solid wood floors. The original charm of the building is beautifully combined with elegant, modern décor and a versatile layout which extends to a substantial 3153 sq ft across two floors.

    The house has been meticulously updated to an exceptional standard and has mostly neutral décor throughout, which promotes the excellent natural light afforded by the tall windows and high ceilings. The interiors have been fully renovated and further improvements include new electrical and plumbing systems and engineered wood flooring throughout the ground floor.

    The accommodation is laid out in a thoughtful style, with the heart of the home based around a parabolic curve which houses the kitchen, installed by Albany Interiors in 2021 with bespoke cabinetry, Dekton fire retardant surfaces and a variety of appliances. A large and welcoming reception hall leads to the formal sitting room and adjoining conservatory, home office, and open plan kitchen and dining room. There is a games room, which offers flexible use. Utility room and shower room.

    Upstairs there is a principal bedroom which shares an interconnecting bathroom with a further double bedroom, three additional generous double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The well-established plot is situated on a convenient road with excellent links to Hitchin, and being well enclosed by mature trees around the boundary it has a very secluded feel, further enhanced by being surrounded by open farmland. The house is approached via a gated entrance, and offers ample off-street parking, in addition to access to the double garage and assorted outbuildings behind, which include a workshop, Greenhouse and three useful storage spaces.

    Above the garage there is a further space which could be developed to create a playroom or home office. The park-like gardens are about two acres, with a further five acres to purchase by separate negotiation and are beautifully landscaped. The garden is ideally suited to entertaining in the warmer months, with a large terrace adjoining the house providing a perfect spot for outdoor dining.

    Agents note: The furniture in a couple of the images has been virtually staged.
