Full description

This handsome Edwardian house was originally built as a private house in the early 20th Century. In later years the house was used as a children's home and by the end of the 20th Century, it had fallen into disrepair. An extensive conversion programme took place in 1995, reverting the house to its former use as a private residence. The current owners have substantially re-modelled the house, including rewiring and re-plumbing in 2003/4. Two new 'industrial' boilers were fitted in 2012. More recently, the kitchen/sitting room/breakfast room was redesigned, creating a magnificent family space with bi-folding doors opening onto the covered and heated, paved terrace, ideal for summer evenings.

Of particular note is the beautifully proportioned drawing room measuring 25'11 x 24'8 and centred on an attractive open fireplace.

Wormley Hill House stands in a charming rural position on the outskirts of the village of Wormley. The village provides local facilities including a junior school and shops. More comprehensive facilities can be found in nearby Broxbourne just 2.5 miles distant of Hertford.

Communications are excellent; the A10 is just 2 miles away and Junction 25 of the M25 is 4 miles. Fast and frequent trains leave Broxbourne Station reaching London Liverpool Street in 32 minutes.

There are a wide range of both private and state schools in the district for all ages, including Haileybury College, Heath Mount, Aldenham, St Edmunds and Haberdashers.

The Hertfordshire Golf Club is 0.5 miles away and Brickendon Grange Golf Club 2 miles distant. Hanbury Manor Spa and Country Club is also within 12 miles, and Brocket Hall just 13 miles away.

The gardens and grounds provide an idyllic, mature setting. There is an extensive area of lawn to the front, studded with a selection of mature deciduous and evergreen trees, whilst the gardens to the rear are very private and focus on a charming ornamental pond. There are three double garages adjoining the cottage which would be ideal for a dependent relative.
