    About this property

    • Ashmount House in Much Hadham was previously the police house and has not been publically for sale since it was acquired by the present owners around 20 years ago. During this time they have sympathetically updated and extended the house to provide the current accommodation which presents very well throughout. There are good sized reception areas and bedroom space and the house itself is set back from the road by a gated frontage with a large parking and turning area leading to the garage.

      The entrance hallway and lounge have parquet wood block flooring with a guest cloakroom under the stairs. The main reception area is to the front which is a double sized room with a fireplace having an inset multi-fuel wood burning stove. This room enjoys a lovely view over the countryside to the front. Double doors lead to the dining room which in turn opens onto the kitchen and rear garden. The kitchen itself has a range of free-standing bespoke units with space for a range-style cooker and plumbing for the usual appliances. Adjacent to this is a utility/boot room which has return access to the hallway and the integral garage.

      Moving upstairs, there are four decent sized bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes, with the master bedroom having a modern en suite bathroom with a separate shower. The family bathroom/WC serves the remaining bedrooms.
      On the outside, the rear garden is neatly landscaped with a wonderful selection of mature shrubs, trees and flowerbed borders. A meandering path leads from the patio to the rear where you'll find a garden shed, utility area and custom built workshop. A covered pergola has space for a hot tub underneath (hot tub available by separate negotiation). There is side access leading back to the front if required.

    I love the view over the fields and the woods to the front of this house, it provides year-round interest and is very much sought after. Sidehill Woods themselves are filled with bluebells in the spring. The house has been lovingly maintained over the years and is ideal for a family looking to enjoy practical living space in a most popular village.
