Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This exceptional and spacious property has been the subject of a complete renovation programme and an extension which has served to create a stunning substantial family house. It has been thoughtfully designed to encompass all modern day living requirements and features a stunning open plan living area with bi-fold doors opening into the garden. The light and airy entrance hall gives access to all the main living rooms, namely the family/living/dining area which has a contemporary feel and opens into the stylish kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive range of Shaker style units, integral appliances and a central island. A double-sided wood-burning stove can be enjoyed from either the kitchen or the drawing room. There is also a study, boot room and downstairs cloakroom as well as a utility room.
The first floor boasts a 33’ principal vaulted bedroom (including dressing area) with light cascading in from the floor to ceiling windows. It also benefits from a well-appointed ensuite bathroom with separate shower. The guest room also enjoys a generous ensuite bathroom whilst the 3 further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. All bedrooms enjoy a wonderful aspect over the gardens and fields beyond. In addition to the main house there is a versatile cabin which can be used for overflow accommodation and which enjoys views directly over the pool and gardens.

Approached via wooden electric gates, which provide privacy, there is a large gravelled parking area which can accommodate numerous vehicles. In addition, there is a triple bay enclosed garage with wooden doors. The delightful gardens wrap around the main house and cabin with far reaching rural views. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with a wide variety of matures shrubs and trees. The swimming pool is private and has an adjoining paved terrace, the ideal spot for al fresco entertaining with ample space for sun-loungers, barbecue and table and chairs.


Elm Wood is situated in a peaceful location between the sought after villages of Hermitage and Bucklebury. Hermitage offers a wide range of facilities including an infant and primary school, a Post Office shop, a Co-op, a petrol station and two public houses. The area has an excellent selection of both state and private schools including the Downs secondary school, Elstree, Downe House, St. Gabriel’s, Brockhurst and Marlston, Horris Hill and Cheam. Recreational facilities locally include the sports complex at Bradfield College (private membership), tennis clubs, two football clubs and a cricket club at Douai Abbey and badminton at Elstree. A comprehensive road network is accessed by the A34, with the M4 and M3 motorways also being accessible.
