Steeped in history is this stunning 5-bedroom family home, beyond private gates, offering contemporary, light and airy spacious living, set on circa 1 acre of delightful grounds. Having undergone a sympathetic renovation and enlargement project in recent times the property now boasts approx. 5,000 sq ft of quality accommodation. The large (30' x 21') reception room was, once upon a time, Lord Salisbury's Eton Fives court when the property belonged to Hatfield House Estate and the viewing gallery makes for a great chill out area or, as the current vendors have experienced, an ideal DJ booth! What can easily be a tremendous party house with the free-flowing rooms and large outdoor space, this home still retains a genuine homely feel and is just as enticing as a quiet retreat as it is for those enjoying livelier times! The stylish kitchen, with vaulted ceiling, is fitted with 2 integrated ovens and dishwasher plus lots of cupboard space and island unit with breakfast bar. The kitchen flows through to the dining room where there is additional cupboard space and integrated coffee machine and wine fridge! The north wing, which could easily become a separate annexe, consists of a study and a gym/studio (22'11 x 13') and W.C. on the ground floor. The mezzanine level is a games/media room but, as it has an en-suite, this could be a perfect bedroom. For those who may require single storey living, the master bedroom suite is on the ground floor. Of great proportions the bedroom area is 25'2 x 13'7, there is a large dressing room and superb 5-piece en-suite bathroom. To complement the ground floor, there is a utility room and a grand entrance hall to welcome the new owners and guests alike. The additional 4 bedrooms are on the first floor, one of these also has a dressing room and en-suite, along with a family bathroom to service the other 3 bedrooms. Entered via electric gates there is a large gravel and a block paved driveway allowing parking for many vehicles. Unassuming from the front, you'll be surprised by what's in store when you step inside this special home! There is plenty of entertainment space on the large composite decking area overlooking the gardens. The rest is mainly laid to lawn, an ideal spot for children to have lots of fun, with mature shrub and tree borders offering a high level of seclusion. To the rear of the garden is a greenhouse and vegetable plot.
