Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built by a local developer for own occupation in 2011. The property is made up of the main house, a separate detached annexe, stable block, menage and paddocks, occupying in total, eight acres.
The main house has a lovely farmhouse style and has been cleverly arranged over three floors, providing approximately 4700 sq ft of living accommodation. The house boasts generous rooms, a hand crafted bespoke kitchen by local craftsman and sumptuous bathroom suites. On the ground floor there are four reception rooms, plus a home office, a large kitchen/breakfast/family room with doors out to the gardens, plant room and boot room. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all of which have en suites and dressing rooms. There is also a large 28'0 TV room and separate study. The second floor comprises two further bedrooms and bathroom.
Within the grounds of Eight Acre, there is a separate detached annexe, comprising two bedrooms, kitchen/living/dining room and separate bathroom, and is an ideal property for an au pair, parent or a possible rental property to provide additional income. The main feature of the property is the stunning eight acres of land. There are six acres of formal paddocks, a 40' x 20' menage and a fully working stable yard which comprises eight separate boxes including three foaling boxes, a tack room and washdown space. There are two acres of formal gardens. Attached to the stable block there is a separate garage and garage/workshop.
The formal gardens are mainly laid to lawn and have a large selection of various fruit trees, including plum, apple and pear. Within the gardens, there is a wildlife pond and an ornamental pond near the patio.
Eight Acre not only offers substantial family accommodation, it is also a very energy efficient home. The property benefits from renewable energy to include a ground source heat pump, which serves the underfloor heating throughout the house and annexe. Solar thermal panels provide approximately half of the hot water.
Eight Acre is set in the heart of Mackerye End and is an ideal purchase for any family who enjoy a love of horses and wish to experience a tranquil rural feel, but still benefit from living in Harpenden.
In summary, a magnificent family home, exceptionally well presented and we strongly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate the calibre of this fine home and its eight acres.
