History Of Balls Park  
Acquire a part of Hertford's heritage set amongst 63 acres of glorious parkland!

An immaculately presented apartment situated on the top floor of the magnificent Balls Park Mansion House and forming part of this prestigious Grade I Listed award winning country estate conversion.

The property, which is approached via a truly stunning oak panelled communal entrance hall, has been beautifully appointed throughout with a range of luxury fixtures and original period details. Accommodation comprises a bespoke hand built kitchen boasting fully fitted appliances and stone work surfaces, a pleasant lounge with fireplace and views over the stunning formal gardens, a spacious bedrooms and luxury shower room.

In the 1880's it was let to the Faudel-Phillips family, who purchased it outright in 1901 and made further changes. The estate offices and surviving stable block were built in 1902. In the early 1920s Sir Benjamin Faudel-Phillips commissioned the Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer to enlarge the house, by removing a series of service buildings and constructing a new west wing, mirroring the form of the mansion. The 1710 Coach House was also re-modelled at the same time.

The estate was sold in 1946 and converted in to a teacher training college, serving in an educational capacity for over 50 years, before closure in its final incarnation as the Hertford campus of the University of Hertfordshire in 2002.
