    About this property

    • Internally the house offers much period character yet is not listed. This includes high vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, stock brick fireplaces and a traditional thatched roof and timber clad exterior.

      A double set of gates opens to reveal a parking area to the front of the house with the glazed atrium leading into the galleried entrance hallway. This gives access to the principal reception areas. These include a living room with fireplace that leads into an additional sunroom/play room with bi-folding doors onto the garden. There is also a study and guest cloakroom. Forming the central part of the house is a vaulted, two storey high dining room, also with bi-folding doors and a feature stock brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove. Both this and the hallway connect with the everyday family living area which is centred around the well-appointed kitchen with island unit. This leads into a large vaulted family room opening onto the terrace and gardens beyond. Here there is also a utility/boot room with garden access.

      Moving upstairs, the current configuration of the house provides four very good bedrooms. The principal bedroom having a sumptuous en suite shower room. A family bathroom can also be used as an en suite to one of the remaining bedrooms. Many of these rooms enjoy views over the countryside beyond the gardens.

      On the outside, the gardens for the main house themselves extend to just over an acre with a large wraparound slate patio providing a fantastic entertainment space. This includes seating areas and a covered outdoor BBQ /bar area, which is wired for wifi and sky television. A secondary access just past the main house provides a substantial parking area with a bonded resin parking drive just adjacent to the kitchen.

      A four bay garage with up and over doors has a further area of garden just behind with part of the ground and first floor converted to provide a self-contained annexe comprising of a kitchenette, shower, sauna and WC on the ground floor with a large open plan living area above – currently used as a gym / occasional guest bedroom.

      The additional field adjacent to the house provides just under 4 acres. Accessible via the separate drive is a large agricultural barn offering much potential either for use as equestrian facilities or a potential leisure suite.

      The plans to convert the loft space would provide a sumptuous principal suite with a glazed gable end giving views over the surrounding countryside. This would use a continuation of the current staircase providing a bedroom, dressing area and a large and private bathroom. Planning permission granted via East Herts District Council under reference 3/20/0555/CLPO copies available upon request.
