It’s week two in the Great British Bake Off tent and to honour Biscuit Week we’ve found an exceptional piece of history that we’d love to snap up.
This four-bedroom property in Woodcock Hill is part of the former family home of the famous British biscuit brand, McVitie’s. Robert McVitie bought the entire house for £9,500 back in 1907, before it was split into three apartments in the 1950s.
The 18th century house on the edge of Berkhamsted is built in a beautiful pale golden brick and is surrounded by three acres of glorious gardens.
The stunning four-bedroom ground floor apartment within this impressive home overlooks the countryside.
The apartment retains many original features including high ceilings, ornate coving and oak parquet flooring throughout.
From the inner hallway you’ll find the kitchen/breakfast room, which has been hand crafted with a range of shaker style units, integrated appliances and AGA, along with an open plan working space. And lots of Digestives, we hope.
The main reception areas of the apartment lead to the four bedrooms and stairway to the cellar.
There is a charming and characterful family bathroom with a freestanding bath tub and an old fashioned cistern toilet.
