Full description

Set in picturesque grounds approaching 4 acres, this magnificent 6 bedroom Georgian house has been lovingly renovated and is conveniently situated for access to St Pancras International and the M1. With 5 bathrooms, swimming pool and tennis court.

Great Farm House was built in 1815 for the Duke of Bedford and has been painstakingly restored by the current owners over the past 20 years.

A welcoming reception hall leads to 3 principal reception rooms; drawing and dining rooms overlooking the formal gardens and sitting room with deep bay window and log burner.

At the hub of the house are the kitchen and breakfast room. Bespoke cabinets are topped with dark granite and an oil-fired Aga completes the classic country kitchen feel. A large utility room, fitted with original Georgian floor tiles, can also be found.

The west wing of the house includes a guest bedroom with en suite facilities and further reception room with striking brick chimney breast and vaulted ceiling, which could be converted to an annexe. In addition, there is a large games room. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms (3 offering en suite facilities) and spacious family bathroom with sunken bath.

Extending to about 4 acres, the grounds are exceptional and diverse: landscaped to the front with mature plantings; sylvan grounds sweeping majestically to an elevated position affording country views; covered swimming pool; summerhouse and tennis court. A long gravel driveway leads to a detached triple garage and workshop.
