Ayot St Lawrence remains a quiet and idyllic village only accessible along country lanes and is very popular with visitors and walkers

Notwithstanding the two distinctly different churches and the Brocket Arms public house, the main draw of the village is Shaw’s Corner. This Edwardian villa, built as a rectory, was George Bernard Shaw's home from 1906 until his death in 1950

The town centres of Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City and St. Albans are within easy reach and all provide comprehensive shopping and travel facilities

Communications in the area are excellent. The A1 is about 5.4 miles distant and from Welwyn Garden City, there are frequent trains to London Kings Cross and the City (about 30 minutes), and from Harpenden into St Pancras International from 22 minutes. Major airports are very accessible, with London Luton airport about 9.3 miles, Stansted 30 miles and Heathrow 38 miles

There is a fantastic selection of golf courses in the area including Brockett Hall with its superb Auberge du Lac restaurant, Knebworth, Mid Herts at nearby Gustard Wood and the challenging course at Hammonds End, Harpenden

Good schools are numerous and include Haileybury College and Heath Mount Preparatory School, both in Hertford, Aldwickbury Preparatory School and St Hildas Girls school at Harpenden, and St. Albans High School for Girls and the St Albans Boys at St. Albans

Description

After a drive down pretty tree-lined country lanes, you arrive at Amesbury, which is set privately on a corner with a public bridleway bordering one hedge boundary ideal for dog walkers and horse riders alike.

Amesbury, built at the turn of the 20th Century, has, over the past 18 months, undergone a complete programme of renovation and extension, and now offers a stunning country house set within delightful private gardens on the edge of this sought after Hertfordshire village. With views over fields framed by mature trees, you would be forgiven for thinking you had arrived in the middle of rural England.

Outside:
The wonderful garden is not to be missed! Features include mature trees, lawned areas, a wild flower meadow and a small pond, which attract many birds, butterflies and wildlife.

Enjoying terracing on 3 sides of the house, you are spoilt for choice as to where to linger to enjoy the views over the stunning surrounding countryside.
Set towards the entrance gate is a triple garage with electric up and over doors.

Services: Mains water and electricity, private drainage system and oil fired central heating.
