About this property

  • Situated at the end of a quiet no-through road and backing onto the River Lea, you would be forgiven to think that you are in the middle of the countryside. However, being just 3.5 miles from Harpenden and 4.8 miles from St Albans, Marford Farm offers the country feel with a London connection.

    The farmhouse offers great scope if one needed to have space to work from home, a dependent relative to look after or just wanting to utilise the great range of barns for recreational purposes.

    The formal and informal gardens offer great space for children and for entertaining guests and a large paddock to the east of the house offers grazing for livestock, or for those with an equine interest.

    Agents note: Adjacent to the double garage is a modern agricultural barn, which is not included in the sale. The barn will be converted into 3 residential units by a third party. Plans and drawings can be supplied upon request. An overage provision may apply, please contact Savills for further information.

    Services: Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
