Tenure: Freehold

The Property:

A generous character home offering abundant beautifully presented living and bedroom accommodation along with a fabulous entertainment barn and significant additional outbuildings.


A unique opportunity to purchase a Grade II Listed home of outstanding space, exceptional specification and huge character. The main house was originally two cottages with an attached barn which have been creatively remodelled and extended to create a spectacular five bedroom residence. Original features have been sympathetically enhanced throughout the property and are evident in the abundant exposed beams and original fireplaces. Natural materials have been used throughout to complement the existing features. The impressive reception hall opens up to a double height area with extensive glazing offering fine views over the private courtyard. The reception accommodation includes a more formal section in the original cottage which dates back to about 1750 with a dining room and sitting room which are dominated by the original chimney breast. A more intimate study/TV room is located next to the reception hall. A beautifully crafted kitchen completes the principal downstairs accommodation. The area has been attractively fitted with solid wood hand built units with French doors opening onto the rear garden.
Upstairs the main staircase opens to the landing which has extensive glazing and overlooks the reception hall. The master suite is a hugely impressive feature and includes bedroom, dressing room, private staircase to the living room and a stunning en-suite bathroom. A guest bedroom with shower room also benefits from its own private staircase and inter-connects via a double door arrangement with the master bedroom. The remaining three bedrooms access off the landing and have the use of the modern fitted family bathroom.
Outside the property is accessed by an electric five bar gate to a sweeping driveway leading to an extensive parking area to the front of the house. The grounds have been landscaped and have been separated into distinct areas, which include a large formal front garden, a beautiful courtyard garden sitting between the main house and the entertainment barn and a further raised lawned garden area to the front of the remaining outbuildings suitable for children. The entertainment barn offers versatile and impressive space. The main area measures over 40ft in depth. An office with kitchenette and WC completes the downstairs space. A spiral staircase gives access to the mezzanine area which has the added benefit of a shower room.
CAT 5 cabling is in place within the barn and main house along with an internal telephone system and comprehensive alarm system


Lynch Farm is situated in a delightful hamlet of just a handful of attractive period homes. It is incorporated as part of the larger village of Kensworth which benefits from a local school and shops. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are within easy reach of both Harpenden and Dunstable along with mainline rail services from Harpenden and Luton Parkway into London St Pancras. The M1 is also only a short drive away.
