About this property

  • Ballingdon Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed countryside house situated on the edge of the sought after village of Gaddesden Row. Set opposite woodland and adjacent to open countryside, the location offers a great mix of countryside living with convenient access to communication links at Berkhamsted, Harpenden and Hemel Hempstead.

    This pretty cottage is believed to date back to the 15th century and today represents a really lovely family home with immense character and charm. The house is adorned by a wealth of wall and ceiling timbers as well as a hand crafted staircase and landing balustrade. In addition, attractive wooden floors run through much of the house and are complimented by brace and latched doors throughout.

    The accommodation is set over two floors and comprises three well proportioned reception rooms, two of which feature fabulous brick open fireplaces. There is a good sized kitchen/breakfast room featuring a good range of fitted units and a pretty log burning stove.

    On the first floor, four bedrooms and a family shower room can be found with the main bedroom boasting a stylish en suite bathroom with roll topped.

    Outside
    Ballingdon Cottage is approached over a gravel driveway, which sweeps round to the front of the house and provides parking for at least four cars. Set to the side of the driveway are two garages and a storeroom although the rear garage is currently used as a utility/store room and would certainly make for a great home office, if required. Behind the garages is a lovely brick outbuilding, currently used for storing garden machinery, although, again, could be used for other purposes.

    The gardens, both to the front and rear, are an absolute delight and have been managed and cared for to encourage and maintain the diverse array of wildlife found within the gardens. Enjoying a south westerly rear aspect, the rear gardens feature a pretty stone terrace, perfect for outdoor entertaining and with steps that lead up to a mainly laid to lawn garden, which is flanked by a variety of mature trees and hedgerows that provide significant privacy and seclusion from the two neighboring period houses.
