Overall Description

This is a large and very well presented Penthouse in this most impressive Victorian Manor House, built in 1897, and converted into luxury apartments from the 1970's. The property is approached down a long driveway and sits amongst three acres of mature gardens with stunning far reaching views across the surrounding Hertfordshire countryside. The apartment retains its period character, including period open fireplaces and high vaulted ceilings, yet has been tastefully modernised to provide a comfortable and contemporary living space just a short drive from excellent road and rail links into London. The property has three reception rooms: a large character sitting room, open-plan dining room and light and airy study for those wanting to work from home. There are three double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, one being en-suite. The apartment has three allocated parking spaces, one right by the front door, and a garage as well as use of the pretty mature gardens. If you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy a quieter more rural lifestyle while remaining close to "civilisation" then this could be the apartment for you.

The property sits in a central location in the heart of the attractive and popular village of Newgate Street which is one of the most desirable villages in the area.
