Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase this 17th Century Grade II Listed former farmhouse which has been lovingly restored and added onto over the years to provide a quite stunning family home, whilst benefitting from beautiful gardens to the rear, the whole plot being just over an acre.

Old Grove Farmhouse is tucked away off Common Road and accessed via a private road. The front door brings you into an enclosed porch, from which there is a large entrance hall. Within the original building is a delightful triple aspect sitting room with marble fireplace, a breakfast/dining room with an Aga wood burning stove, linking directly to the farmhouse style fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops, underfloor heating and uninterrupted views over the garden and valley beyond, a spacious utility room with range of wall and floor units, a walk-in larder, and a downstairs toilet. Linked via an oak & glass walkway is a superb solid oak vaulted barn with a large wood burning stove, a window seat overlooking the garden and an elegant spiral staircase up to a mezzanine office floor.

On the first floor of the original building are four bedrooms, en-suite to master and a family bathroom.

There is an abundance of character features throughout this fine period home, with exposed timbers, fireplaces and period details throughout.


Old Grove Farmhouse is situated in the delightful village of Kensworth which benefits from a local school, shops and a village pub. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are within easy reach of both Harpenden and Dunstable along with mainline rail services from Harpenden and Luton Parkway direct into London (St. Pancras International). The M1 motorway is also within convenient distance.


The overall plot extends to just over an acre, with a stunning landscaped garden to the rear overlooking the valley designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty with access to lovely country walks. The garden is laid mainly to lawn, with a pond and two large patio areas for entertaining. To the front of the property is a covered car port which leads to a driveway providing parking for several cars, along with a separate parking area to the front.
