Full description

A luxurious and historic country residence set amongst the beautiful grounds of Warrenwood Park offering idyllic and secluded living. Situated in landscaped gardens with 28 acres of parkland consisting of walkways, woodlands and paddocks, which have the advantage of having private paths and scenic walks created by the current owners, this magnificent home is approached via a 300 metre driveway lined by mature trees and rhododendron bushes. Positioned behind a secure, gated entrance with detached lodge (which currently is not included in the sale of this property but which is negotiable), the main house offers impressive entertaining and living accommodation.

The beautiful grounds of Warrenwood Park are set in the prime Hertfordshire countryside. The gated entrance opens to the driveway which runs approximately 300 metres to the main house, it passes the Lodge house. Within the grounds lies the barns, paddocks, stables, detached 6 car garage and a Summer House which has the possibility of being converted into a three bedroom bungalow, ideal for staff accommodation. Surrounding the main house is a beautiful landscaped terraced garden, in which a gravelled pathway leads from the large patio area which is accessed from the house through either the dining room or the living room. The pathway passes a central water feature down to the garden boundary. Beyond the boundary of the landscaped garden is the rolling parkland which includes an area of woodland. The woodland remains in its natural element but is maintained as is the tended grass path offering scenic walks amongst these tranquil surrounds.
