Marford Farm is situated less than half a mile from the pretty and historic village centre of Wheathampstead, which offers a good range of shops, pubs and a Tesco Express.

Wheathampstead lies about 3.5 miles east of the delightful tree-lined high street of Harpenden with its distinctly village feel, offering supermarkets, numerous boutiques and traditional independent shops, restaurants, bars and bistros.

While St Albans City centre is about 5 miles and offers a wider range of shops and amenities. Harpenden and St Albans are renowned for their private and state schools and both have numerous leisure and sporting facilities.

For the commuter, Harpenden and St Albans provide mainline stations, which provide fast and frequent train services into London St Pancras International (from 25 and 18 minutes respectively). Road communications are excellent with the M1 (junction 9) being just 7 miles distant, and the A1M being 5.5 miles distant. Both motorways provide a direct link to the M25.

Description

Situated at the end of a quiet no-through road and backing on to the River Lea, you would be forgiven to think that you are in the middle of the countryside. However, being just 3.5 miles from Harpenden and 4.8 miles from St Albans, Marford Farm offers the ‘country feel’ with the London connection.

The farmhouse offers great scope if one needed to have space to work from home, a dependent relative to look after or just wanting to utilise the great range of barns for recreational purposes.

The formal and informal gardens offer great space for children and for entertaining guests and a large paddock to the east of the house offers grazing for livestock, or for those with an equine interest.

Agents note: Adjacent to the double garage is a modern agricultural barn, which is not included in the sale. The barn will be converted into 3 residential units by a third party. Plans and drawings can be supplied upon request. An overage provision may apply – please contact Savills for further information
