THE PROPERTY
With its earliest parts dating back to around the reign of Richard the Lionheart, this exceptional, Grade II* Listed residence is one of Hertfordshire`s most historically important buildings.

With its origins in the twelfth century, including its smoke-blackened timbers, this handsome house went on to be remodelled and extended over the next four centuries. Each alteration added its own unique quirk to this handsome building, which today represents a most enchanting mix of medieval character, sympathetically blended with all the modern conveniences of twenty-first century living that one would today desire.

The property is both luxuriously presented and peacefully located, in a wonderful, rural setting, particularly convenient for St Albans, only four miles to the East. The M1 (J8), M25 (J20), Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted are all readily accessible too.

The very generous 2,300 sq ft of accommodation provides a sense of light and space that is particularly unusual for a period home of its kind; the sizeable, sophisticated interior is decadently spacious for a three bedroom home, and most of the rooms also enjoy a dual aspect.

Muted tones, glorious garden views, and open fireplaces are all to be found here, along with a plethora of exposed beams and an enchanting sense of soul. Two, good size reception rooms create the perfect living space, while the gorgeous, farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room is undoubtedly the heart of this fine home.

The first floor is every bit as characterful as the lower floor, with two separate staircases providing access to the three, lovely double bedrooms. The spectacular master bedroom, created by the current owners out of three, orginal, smaller bedrooms, is of breathtaking proportions, and features an adjoining dressing area and a beautiful en suite shower room. A similarly stylish family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms.

To the far end of the house, there is a single-storey, twentieth century garden room. Whilst it has admittedly seen better days, with a little imagination and correct planning consents, it does offer an exciting opportunity for the next owners to develop it and add their own mark to the house – perhaps the latest evolution in the property`s long history of `tweaks` carried out over the centuries.

Outside, the property enjoys grounds totalling approximately 1.6 acres. The large, lawned gardens are extremely private, wrapping around the house. An adjoining paddock area – already securely fenced – would be perfect for a pony, or perhaps a few chickens.

The long, sweeping driveway leads to a very sizeable car parking area, together with a detached, triple garage block. Mature planting and an electrically operated gated entrance provide both a high degree of privacy and also security.

Situated on Westick Row, a highly sought after, rural lane on the edge of Leverstock Green, this beautiful home offers the perfect combination of character, sophistication and convenience.
