Overall Description

This most attractive Grade II Listed property has been extended to the side and rear to create what is now a most comfortable and stylishly presented home in one of the most sought-after villages in East Hertfordshire. The property has plenty of period character and yet is also a modern and practical home. There are two main reception rooms, the sitting room having exposed beams and a wood-burning stove, while the dining room has French doors out to the walled garden. There is a downstairs study, perfect for home-working, which overlooks the garden as well as a modern fitted kitchen and a downstairs shower room with WC. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms which have pleasant views to the fields opposite, a modern shower room, under-eaves storage space and two good-sized loft spaces which may have potential for further living accommodation - as has been done next door - subject to the usual consents. To the front of the house is a private drive with off-street parking for three cars as well as a garage with ample space for modern cars (and which may also offer potential for a downstairs en-suite bedroom, subject to consent). The walled garden to the rear is surprisingly secluded and has three outbuildings including two stables (one of which is used as a utility room) and a large Barn which has plenty of scope for use as an office, gym or family space. This is a delightful home is a very good location and so viewing is highly recommended.

The village is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with plenty of footpaths and bridleways, some of which lead to nearby Broxbourne Woods (designated a National Nature Reserve). yet it is also less that a ten minute drive from the A414 heading to the A1, M25 and A10. In summary, it is a quiet and peaceful village location that's easily accessible from London and elsewhere.
