A magnificent contemporary home with over 4,300 square feet of superb accommodation set in around one acre of gardens with wonderful views.
The current owners had this exceptional property built for them by one of Hertfordshire’s leading construction companies four years ago creating a unique and very special modern home, full of natural light and architectural interest. Designed by a multi-award-winning architect, the property is oak framed and cedar clad with two wings on either side of a curved zinc roofed atrium.
The accommodation is wonderfully free-flowing and has been cleverly designed around open plan living spaces with an interesting and stylish blend of glass, exposed oak beams, engineered oak and Italian sandstone flooring and high-quality and bespoke fittings.
On entering through the front door into the dining hall, one is greeted with a wonderful view across the garden. Leading off the hall are the two reception rooms, both with feature contemporary fireplaces including a “floating “ Gyrofocus fire in the sitting room, and a galleried kitchen/breakfast which is exceptionally well fitted out with Gaggenau appliances, two ovens, built in microwave, built in coffee maker, warming drawer, dishwasher, full height fridge, freezer and wine fridges, polished concrete and stainless steel work surfaces and 5 burner gas hob. On the ground floor is also a large study with full height windows, a laundry room, a cloakroom, a plant room and a useful, large boot room with built in dog kennel.
The owners have created a superb master bedroom suite on the ground floor with his and hers shower rooms and dressing rooms, with extensive hanging and drawer space, leading round to the vaulted bedroom itself. On the first floor, and accessed via a staircase in each wing, are three double bedrooms and two further bath/shower rooms. There is also a mezzanine library space over the family room.
The layout of this individual and aspirational property, which has been featured in Beautiful Homes magazine, has been designed to suit any living requirements with open plan areas combined with separate spaces perfect for families or couples. The finish and style have to be seen to be fully appreciated and viewing is highly recommended.
The property is approached through a remotely controlled five bar electric gate giving access to the gravelled driveway and parking area. There is a further five bar gate opening to the rear gardens. To the front of the house is a detached garage with two bay cart lodge and a closed garage with double doors. Above the garaging is a large room (currently used for storage) with plumbing and wiring offering the perfect space for a granny/teenager flat (subject to conversion), a home office, studio or gym.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and fully enclosed by fencing and mature hedging. Across the back of the house is a large sandstone paved terrace with an external music speaker system. Glazed doors lead out from the reception rooms making the house ideal for entertaining. Delightfully secluded with far reaching rural outlooks, the gardens and terraces are the perfect place for al-fresco dining, relaxation etc.
