Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Approached via a sweeping and meandering cherry tree-lined gravel driveway, this delightful period-style home was designed and built for the current owners around 25 years ago. Cleverly blending modern and traditional architecture, there is great attention to detail including gothic arches, solid wood doors, bespoke radiators and period fireplaces.
On entering the property, the reception hallway features a central stock-brick fireplace with an inset gas fire and solid oak staircase rising through the centre of the house providing galleried landings on each level. Double doors lead from the hallway into the kitchen, snug, morning room and utility on the right and the dining room and drawing room to the left.
On the first floor, a galleried landing gives access to four bedrooms and additional landing area overlooking the pool. The triple aspect master suite has far-reaching views, a walk through dressing room area and large en suite bathroom. Currently used as an office, a fifth bedroom (The Bridge Room) occupies the top floor of the house.
Expanding across the full rear width of the house is an exceptional vaulted leisure complex with indoor pool, fully tiled surround and a raised and inset spa bath. The space has an abundance of natural light and doors open onto the gardens, as well as a sunroom, with potential for use as a gymnasium.
Outside a large garage with electric up and over doors has ample storage space offering potential for conversion into a self-contained annexe, home office or studio (subject to planning permission). The beautifully maintained gardens and grounds extend to around 1.48 acres and include a large pond with fountain, mature trees and shrubs and a Virginia creeper covered seating area with views across the countryside.

This pretty and historic Hertfordshire village benefits from three highly regarded public houses, a church and a primary school.
