Overall Description

This stunning architect designed luxury home combines cutting-edge New England design - with its striking appearance and crisp clean lines - and leading-edge eco-friendly technology to create a stylish family home that has as small an impact to run on both the environment and your pocket as such a substantial property could do. This most impressive home has living accommodation of approximately 5,000 square feet with a light, open and modern feel throughout, especially in the large open-plan kitchen/dining family room, very much the heart of the home, with its double tri-fold doors out to a lovely private and sunny patio overlooking the mature garden and woodland beyond. There are two more receptions on the ground floor as well as a utility, shower room and garage with pump room beneath. There are six large double bedrooms and five more bathrooms (four en-suite) on the next two floors and the layout is extremely flexible with a large reception room on the second floor that would make an excellent kid's play room or gym but has plumbing in place to add a kitchen if you need an annexe for a relative or au-pair. The gardens have direct access into the bluebell woods behind and also contain a fully modernised summerhouse with verandah, an ideal place to work from home or to use as a family cinema or games room. Inside, no stone has been left unturned in terms of the latest technology: the house is wired throughout for Cat 5, Wi-Fi and TV/Sky/Satellite. It has integrated underground water storage tanks including rainwater harvesting to reduce bills and on the roof there are both solar and PV solar panels. The net effect is a very energy efficient and eco-friendly property that is currently energy rated B, which is very unusual in itself, but could attain an amazing A rating simply by adding more solar panels to the roof. If you are looking for a large and highly contemporary family home that is efficient to run and minimises its impact on the environment then this superb property comes highly recommended.

Location

This superb luxury home sits in an enviable location on a quiet lane with direct access to the woodland behind towards the edge of the highly sought-after village of Brookmans Park, yet within walking distance of the excellent range of shops dotted around the village green, as well as Brookmans Park mainline railway station providing regular services to London Kings Cross (38 minutes). Brookmans Park is well known for its high quality housing stock and is in an enviable location surrounded by attractive countryside, so perfect for walking (with footpaths a stone's throw away), yet easily accessible from road and rail networks with the A1 and M25 only under 10 minutes drive away at Hatfield and South Mimms (for more information on the village go to the online newsletter at www.brookmans.com). The village has excellent schools, both the Brookmans Park Primary School and Chancellors School (just up the road) and there are further very well regarded public and private schools in the area including Lochinver School, Stormont, Queenswood, Mount Grace and the Dame Alice Owen's School. There are plenty of excellent golf courses nearby including the Brookmans Park Golf Club, Essendon Golf Club and Brickendon Grange. Brookmans Park sits around 3 miles from Potters Bar and 4 miles from Hatfield both of which have a good range of High Street shops and other facilities. It is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside so ideal for keen walkers or cyclists.
