Tenure: Freehold

An exciting and rare opportunity to purchase a rural Grade II listed period property-combined with a huge array of workshops, outbuildings and further accommodation with 2 self contained annexes. The original house dates back over 500 years and retains original timbers, fireplaces and low ceilings: Secure behind high gates this most private home -whilst partially attached to the adjacent "Forge Cottage"- enjoys mature gardens with ornamental fishponds and waterfalls. Importantly, with a variety of workshops and wide gated vehicular access this property is perfect for, and does currently house a home based business: there are a number of additional outbuildings, some are used currently for further 'extended family' accommodation making this a versatile property in a private setting within the Green Belt.


The house also enjoys a separate small paddock with market garden adjacent to open countryside. Perfect for anyone seeking to cultivate and grow their own produce, an amazing array of fruit and vegetables are currently harvested each summer.

This unique combination of period accommodation and opportunity for the 'workshop-based' home business is located off Wilkins Green Lane, on the eastern fringe of St Albans. It is a great and very rare opportunity to live and work from home in a peaceful, private semi rural yet convenient setting: At the right time of day Brent Cross is under 30 minutes away by car: The M1, M25 and A1 (M) all lie within a couple of miles.

The property is accessed via double gates opening into an extensive gravel courtyard providing parking for several vehicles.

The garden is a real feature of this property, with patio area leading ont extensive lawns with ornamental fishpond and waterfall.
