The property consists of two individual and elegant family houses on either side of a cobbled courtyard. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and enjoying splendid views of the Chiltern countryside, with the popular and thriving town of Berkhamsted less than 2 miles away.
Originally part of a large farm estate that was split up in the early 60's, Norcott Lodge (1856) is now a stylish 6 bedroom house and on the other side of the courtyard, the Coach House (Grade II Listed), is a substantial 4 bedroom house. Both offering modern amenities with exceptional interiors and splendid features such as vaulted ceilings, minstrel galleries, inglenook fireplaces and roof terraces.
In the same ownership for the last 30 years, they have been designed, lived in and enjoyed together by three generations of the same family.
There is a large triple garage block with a studio above and the property is approached by a long gravel drive. There is parking space for numerous cars at the front of the house.
Both properties nestle beneath a gentle hill, which leads across to Northchurch Common. The private landscaped gardens to Norcott Lodge lie to the west and north of the house and comprise extensive lawned areas including a large level section that was once a grass tennis court, but now perfect for a children's play area. There are pretty, thoughtfully designed terraces dotted around the house ensuring that there is always somewhere to sit on sunny days.
For Norcott Coach House, two attractive terraces provide excellent outdoor space for those summer evenings and BBQ's. There is a small lawned garden with timber shed.
Garage block / studio / snooker room / gym
There is a single and double bay garage block, wood store and housing for the oil tank attached. The first floor is currently used as a recreational area with a full size snooker table and a gym area. It has its own independent central heating system and a shower room. All main services are in place should it be needed as further ancillary family, guest or staff accommodation.
