    About this property

    • Rosebery House is a substantial detached property which extends to approximately 5600 sq.ft and is situated in a prime Harpenden position within easy reach of amenities and transport links. The Victorian red brick property affords a striking first impression, with its handsome mock Tudor elevations, and offers a wealth of original features including tiled flooring in the entrance hall, original Victorian fireplaces and high ceilings. The property was built around 1900, was the former vicarage for St. Nicholas' church and later extended, first in the 1960s and again in 1994, and was until recently run as a care home. The accommodation layout and setting make this an exciting opportunity for redevelopment, either into individual apartments or to create a stunning single family residence (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). Though much of the interior has been removed for sale, the building is in excellent condition and has been well maintained.

      The ground floor is light filled and wonderfully spacious, with four separate generously sized reception rooms, a large kitchen to the rear and an adjoining dining room. There is also a useful cellar with space for storage. On the first floor there are ten bedrooms and a number of WCs and wash rooms, with a further four bedrooms and a shower room on the top floor.

      Rosebery House is set back from the road behind a good-size block paved driveway which offers parking for a number of cars. To the rear there is a west-facing garden mostly laid to lawn with borders around the edge, large trees providing shade and a generous patio for enjoying the outside space.

      Please note, the EPC is a non domestic assessment. For further information or full EPC report, please contact us.
