Approached over an impressive gravel carriage driveway, this handsome property sits back from the private road behind a low stone wall and planted shrubbery.
Taking its influences from the Arts and Crafts movement, with delightful multi-paned windows throughout, this imposing house displays a period elegance typical of the surrounding area.
Entering through to the spacious hallway, you are greeted by the wonderful oak panelled walls and flooring. From the hall, doors lead to all, bar one, of the main reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room, making for a great house to entertain family and friends. The sitting room enjoys a dual-aspect and features a large open fire place. From this room, separate doors lead out to the rear garden and also to the leisure area. The study is a perfect room for working from home and boasts a bespoke range of fitted oak cupboards, shelving and matching desk. There is also a gas fire stove to one side.
The dining room is elegant and offers space for a large dining table for those more formal occasions. The kitchen/breakfast room is certainly the hub' of the house and has a very farmhouse' style feel about it. The Aga is set in one corner and is surrounded by a range of crafted wall and base units. There is ample space for a kitchen table and double doors lead out to the rear garden and a door leads through to the bright and spacious family room. This room also boasts a dual-aspect and features a wood burning stove. An inner hall separates the family room from the garaging, but also offers a great storage space for coats and boots and also gives access to the utility room and the basement games room and wine store.
The first floor bedroom accommodation comprises a spacious master bedroom with an elegant en suite bath and shower room, 4 further bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. From 4 of the bedrooms, lovely views over the rear garden can be enjoyed.
NB: Although now lapsed, in 2007 plans for a loft conversion were passed by St Albans District Council original plans available upon request.
Set beneath an impressive timber framed vaulted ceiling is the heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi pool, all lined by mosaic tiles. Two sets of double doors open to the rear garden, and at one end, the changing room, with shower, cloakroom and sauna can be found.
The rear gardens to the house, which face south east, are a true delight; private, interesting and thoughtfully landscaped. Across the rear of the house lies a fabulous flagstone terrace, which features a fish pond and provides ample space for al fresco dining.
Lawned grounds extend away from the house and are interspersed with well stocked herbaceous borders. Part way down the garden, a mature yew hedge crosses the lawns and an opening in the hedge leads to a further area of lawned garden, perfect for children wishing to play games.
A double garage stands to one side with extensive parking on the gravel driveway being provided
