Full description

Hoppers Barn is a stunning 17th century barn conversion with a separate 2 bedroom self-contained annexe, and has a history dating back to 1628. Situated in the heart of Datchworth Green, one of Hertfordshire’s most desirable and peaceful rural villages, Hoppers Barn offers 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms (4 en-suite), providing light, spacious and flexible family accommodation.

Introduction - An impressive high vaulted ceiling, with many original timber beams, spans the length and breadth of the main reception area which incorporates a sitting room, dining room and snug area. With 10ft windows and three sets of double doors leading onto the south-facing garden, this makes a wonderfully light and spacious area for relaxing or entertaining. A spiral staircase leads to a spacious study area on a mezzanine level.

The substantial kitchen/breakfast room is finished with high end appliances, porcelain flooring with underfloor heating, a central island incorporating an induction hob, and a delightful leather banquette seating/dining area.

The light and spacious master bedroom includes a modern en-suite wet room with a separate walk in shower, a wood-burning stove and shuttered double doors leading onto the garden.

Upstairs includes a large guest bedroom offering spacious fitted wardrobes and a modern en suite wet room, two additional double bedrooms and a family bathroom with freestanding claw-foot slipper bath.

A large self-contained two bedroom annexe comprises a double bedroom with en suite wet room and double doors opening onto a separate terrace area, laundry room and wine store on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a large living/dining room with open plan kitchen and a further double bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Externally, the property is approached via electric gates, leading to a large shingle driveway offering off street parking for several vehicles and a double detached garage.

The brick and flint fully walled grounds extend to approx. one third of an acre, and are beautifully landscaped and extremely private. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders and mature trees. The heated outdoor swimming pool (approx. 10m x 5m) has been recently upgraded and includes an electric safety cover. A pool house in the garden contains the boiler and pump equipment and an air source heat pump provides inexpensive heating for the pool.

The village itself provides good local amenities including a shop, an award winning pub, tea rooms, an additional pub, a church and a village green with a sports club offering rugby/cricket/tennis.
More comprehensive amenities can be found in nearby Welwyn whilst there is very good shopping in nearby Welwyn Garden City and St Albans.
