This beautiful and distinctive home - unique and grade II listed - is today part of an exclusive, private mews development, located in the heart of Northchurch, close to local shops, schools, and playing fields, the canal and country walks, and only a short way from Berkhamsted.
Originally a Georgian manor house, with later Victorian extension, the property has been sympathetically and tastefully improved over the years, whilst still retaining many breathtaking period features. Magnificent, high ceilings with beautiful cornices, panelled walls, fireplaces, a beautiful original staircase, and huge, impressive windows that bathe the house in natural light, are all to be found here.
The spacious accommodation at ground floor level includes a kitchen with attractive handmade wooden units and granite work surfaces, a utility area, traditional cloakroom and a beautiful dining room with fireplace. But it is the sitting room which is perhaps the most impressive; beautifully appointed, it is the epitome of period elegance, with its high ceilings, sizeable fireplace, panelled walls and magnificent triple windows with period shutters.
Below, a spacious cellar is to be found, presenting an opportunity for conversion into additional living space, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Ascending the wide, beautiful staircase up to the upper floors, the spacious, elegant nature of the property continues. The bedrooms are impressive and sizeable; the master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, plus a dressing room/nursery, with scope to convert, perhaps into an en suite. The guest bedroom has an en suite shower room and, finally, two further double bedrooms are served by a traditional family bathroom.
Outside, in the attractive courtyard is a single garage with access leading to a very pretty courtyard garden.
