Graveley House commands a prominent position at one end of the high street in the historic village of Graveley.

Originally a drovers route which became almost impassable in winter time, the High Street was turnpiked in the 1700's and with the toll monies, the route was much improved and Graveley became a sought after village where Londoners chose to have their country retreats.

Now an attractive village with its two public houses the 'George and Dragon' and the 'Waggon and Horses', Graveley also has an eye-catching and typically English village pond. St Mary's church, which dates to the 12th Century, is situated on the outskirts of the village to the east.

There is a small village primary school, whilst further afield, education is available at nearby Kingshott Preparatory School with a choice of fine schools in Hitchin, Cambridge and Bedford.

The A1M provides access to the motorway network via the M25 (J23), which is just over 18 miles away.

The neighbouring town of Stevenage, comprising New and Old Towns, offers comprehensive shopping facilities, schools for all age groups, a leisure complex, theatre and arts centre and a mainline railway station with fast, regular trains to London Kings Cross.

The elegant Georgian town of Hitchin provides attractive boutique style shops and eateries and also has a large branch of Waitrose.

The property
Graveley House is a stunning period family house, which has just undergone a complete programme of renovation and with the addition of a stunning Orangery, whilst great care being taken to retain the integrity of the period.

Today, Graveley House represents a wonderful and spacious family home with living space set over two principal floors, yet has the added benefits of a large attic area (possible bedroom 6) and a wine cellar, accessed from the kitchen via an automated floor level door.

The finish applied to the house is of a particularly high quality, with great thought given to creating a modern family living environment.

There are many rooms of note, but the kitchen/breakfast room, with the extended garden room/Orangery beyond, is undoubtedly one of the key attributes. The modern lines of the fully fitted kitchen, coupled with the central log burning stove, that separates the kitchen from the garden room, make this a real 'hub' for the house.

Engineered oak floors adorn many of the reception rooms, whilst the study/family room features the original wood panelled walls.

All the bedrooms are of really good proportion, with the master bedroom featuring a luxurious en suite and a separate dressing area. The en suites and family bathrooms are all of a high standard.

Gardens and grounds
Much of the gardens are established, with large areas of lawn sweeping across to the boundary edges. In addition, a formal garden that is flanked by a row of pleached trees adds to the charm and privacy the garden affords.

An extensive limestone terrace extends from the rear and side of the house and is flanked by a low level retaining wall. Matching steps lead up to the lawns and to the formal garden.

Via double wooden gates, a gravel driveway leads up to a turning area and garaging. The garaging is of timber construction and features two open bays and an enclosed bay.

To the front, lawned gardens can be found with a gravel pathway leading to the front door.
