'The North Wing' of 'St Ibbs' is a magnificent example of a period home from the Georgian period and its renovation by the current owners in more recent years has seen the property keep a classic design throughout that, with the high quality contemporary finishing, perfectly complement this rarely available home.

With beautifully maintained grounds of around one and a half acres the property is located in the highly desired village of St Ippolyts, just on the outskirts of Hitchin. Ideally located within easy distance of Hitchin town with all its amenities and also with a mainline station with a regular service to London Kings Cross, perfect if you are a regular commuter.

Your access to the property is via a sweeping gravelled driveway that also gives access to three further homes in this exclusive location. You cannot help but be immediately impressed with the grandeur and beauty of both the property and its surroundings. On entering this home through the entrance hall, which is also used as a snug, you see the quality and size of accommodation on offer, with its high ceilings and luxurious decoration, something you will see feature throughout.
Leading off the snug are your two main reception rooms, the dining room and the drawing room. Both substantial in size and with large windows that let light flood through the home and also with both featuring 'Adam' open fireplaces that create focal points for the rooms.

Also leading off the snug is the kitchen/breakfast room that has been completed with a range of units with granite work surfaces and housing all the needs of the modern kitchen including a ceramic sink, range with double oven and gas hob, plumbing for a dish washer and washing machine. With a breakfast table complementing the fitted units it's a perfect space to have breakfast or why not use the double French doors that lead out to the courtyard garden area. Finally on the ground floor and off the kitchen is that always useful downstairs cloakroom.

Going to the first floor you have a split level landing that leads to five rooms. Firstly you have a perfect study with wood panelling giving you an additional reception room on this floor or of course could offer you a sixth bedroom if required. Three generous double bedrooms include the master suite which is of such a size that the current owners have a sofa area and enjoys the benefit of a Juliet balcony overlooking the grounds. Finally on this floor you have a quality fitted bathroom with three piece suite including a fantastic rain head shower above the bath.

The second floor of accommodation offer this property a further two double bedrooms and is perfect for when you have guests at your home. Both with a feel of a high quality hotel and one room boasting a contemporary glass sink and shower cubicle. After seeing this final floor you remain convinced that everything in this home has been completed to the very highest standard with no cost spared. You just need to move in and make this home your own.

The grounds of this property will not disappoint once you have fallen in love with the property itself, with gardens on three aspects that all benefit from a high degrees of privacy. The front and side gardens are predominately laid to lawn with high hedged borders and the rear has a woodland area along with a secluded 'hidden garden' which has a more traditional home garden feel. To the rear of the property is a beautifully landscaped courtyard which is perfect for eating your summer evening meals or entertaining guests and family gatherings. A car port and detached work shop are the final benefits to this magnificent home along with the driveway that provides a private area for all the family vehicles.
