Property description

Latimer House is an impressive family home built in a classic Georgian style and situated in a very special location being part of a small private country estate, yet only 5.5 miles from the lovely town of Harpenden. The property offers well proportioned and elegantly presented living space over two floors and extends to over 2,800 sqft of living space. The property has many features of note, in particular, a beautiful triple aspect drawing room, spacious well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, five double bedrooms, a stunning southerly facing rear garden and some of the finest views over rolling countryside.

Latimer House is one of only seven houses, which make up Hoo Park. This most select enclave of properties can be approached from two directions through gated entrances. The front drive passes over a beautiful bridge designed by Sir William Chambers – Architect of Somerset House, London.


Mileages Approx: Harpenden 5.5 miles with mainline station to St Pancras International from 22 minutes, Hitchin 7 miles,

Whitwell Hoo, locally known as Hoo Park, sits behind elegant wrought iron gates and is surrounded by wonderful open countryside, which is a pleasing mixture of mature woodlands and pasture. Set in the heart of some of the most beautiful countryside, Whitwell Hoo has a decidedly rural feel, but is still well placed for access to all amenities including those within the nearby village of Kimpton.

The house is very well placed for education with a variety of schools in Harpenden, Preston, Hitchin and further afield at St Albans and Cambridge.

There is lots to keep you busy within both walking and driving distance of the house with numerous footpaths and bridleways criss-crossing the countryside. For those working on their golf handicap, there is a good choice of golf courses to visit at Gustard Wood, Harpenden and Welwyn.
