    About this property

    • This stunning and attractive home is located in a peaceful, semi-rural location but within easy reach of village amenities in Markyate and just a short drive from Harpenden. The property was built in the 1960s and later extended in 2016 to create a substantial and beautifully appointed residence of about 3950 sq ft. Great care and attention has been taken over the décor, which is modern and bright yet complements the rural setting. Of particular note is the impressive open plan kitchen and family room, within the new extension: the ceiling is crowned by exposed timber beams, the floor is laid to porcelain tile and the centrepiece is an attractive gas fireplace which can be viewed from both sides. The room is zoned into cooking, dining and relaxing areas, creating a fantastic room for big family celebrations, complete with a bar and a well-appointed kitchen.

      There are four additional reception areas providing a wealth of space and versatility for family time and entertaining at home, each one attractively appointed in its own individual style.

      There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, two en suite, plus a separate bathroom and w.c., with a fourth bedroom on the first floor. The accommodation also includes a library, pantry/utility room, laundry room, further utility room and boot room.
      The house is set in a quiet setting surrounded by open countryside, over which there are magnificent views. The gardens are landscaped to include a paved courtyard, fenced in to provide a fantastic outside entertaining space. The lawns are well tended and bordered by mature trees and hedges, while a gravel driveway leads up to the house and provides ample off-street parking.
