About this property

  • Designed by local architect, Mike Lyons, Verulam House is a pretty, traditional-style detached family house set back from the village lane within its grounds. The house was built by the owners in 2009, constructed of locally quarried Green Sandstone, under a clay tiled roof.

    The central front door opens into a dining hall, with engineered oak floorboards, leading through to a garden room, with French doors onto the terrace and galleried landing above. The wooden floors extend into the sitting room, with lovely garden views, which also boasts a Green Sandstone fireplace.

    The dual aspect kitchen, with a 4-oven Aga, has a range of oak cupboards and worktops and an unusual fossil-set sandstone floor. It continues through to the utility/boot room, with adjacent walk-in larder and door to the driveway. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with adjacent shower room. With the exception of the utility room, the ground floor has underfloor heating.

    The stairs lead up on to a wide galleried landing, with space for a study area. There are three further double bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom.

    Double gates lead onto a spacious gravel driveway in front of the house, with lawn to one side and a vegetable garden to the other. The front elevation of the property is covered in Wisteria, flowering in May. A paved terrace runs the width of the rear elevation, with wide steps up onto the terraced lawn, punctuated with a variety of shrubs and trees, including pink magnolia, white magnolia and fig. The garden boundary consists of mature beech hedging and mixed native hedge, such as hawthorn and hazel.
