Full description

Tenure: Freehold

OVERALL DESCRIPTION
This attractive detached house dates back to the 1790's, when it was owned by the Cowper family and served as the Lodge for Tewin Water House, and has been much extended and improved since to create what is now a large and comfortable family home.

The property has five double bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms, three receptions and a kitchen/breakfast room, so is a substantial family home in its own right, but also has a layout suited to buyers looking for an integral annexe for an elderly relative.

The seven acres of mature riverside gardens including your very own private lake with island are clearly a major feature of the house which has beautiful views across the river from the main receptions and bedrooms to the woodland opposite and lake beyond, not to mention the soothing sound of water tumbling down the weir.

If you are looking for something a bit special, a unique environment in which to bring up a family away from the hustle and bustle of city living, then Tewin Lodge could well be the house for you.

LOCATION
The property sits on the banks of the river Mimram just a five to ten minutes walk from the sought-after village of Tewin with it's village shop, two pubs and village green with cricket pitch (go to the excellent village web site www.tewinvillage.co.uk for full details of village amenities and activities).

The location is beautifully rural and yet the house is very well positioned for local rail and road links being around a five minute drive from Welwyn North, Welwyn Garden City and Hertford North stations with their regular services to Kings Cross (Welwyn line) and Moorgate (Hertford line). The A1, A414 and A10 are also between five and ten minutes drive away, so the house is ideal for people who want to live a rural lifestyle but still be close to "civilisation".

The property sits between the historic county town of Hertford and Welwyn Garden City with it's excellent shopping including the Howard Centre, John Lewis and Debenhams department stores, Waitrose and Sainsburys.

There are excellent schools at all levels in the area, including the Tewin Cowper C of E Primary school in the village and Sherrardswood School in Digswell, so the location is perfect for growing families.

The property is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside (an area of river immediately downstream is a Site of Special Scientific Interest) so it is ideal for nature lovers and keen walkers and cyclists.
