Property description

A characterful detached Grade ll listed Manor House with a versatile collection of rooms, enriched by many original features. The setting is delightful and the property enjoys views over countryside.

The Manor House is approached via a long sweeping drive that is shared with four barn conversions. This is the perfect family home, comfortably proportioned and great for entertaining.

There are three elegant reception rooms, all have fine fireplaces and high ceilings, whilst large sash picture windows make them bright and airy.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with farmhouse style storage units and granite style counter tops and the breakfast area has exposed beams and a high vaulted ceiling together with a rustic open fireplace with a stepped brick chimney breast, together with an adjoining utility room.

The lower ground floor has been enhanced to provide a spacious study with natural light from the glazed door and window to an external stone staircase.

On the first floor the elegant master bedroom has dual aspect views over countryside and the courtyard. There is a dressing room and en-suite bathroom with both a bath and shower enclosure. Bedroom two is equally well proportioned and triple aspect, having some of the best views in the house. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor and a family bathroom.

On the second floor there is a fifth bedroom and a further bathroom. The property also has a good amount of attic storage.

Externally, the plot is generously proportioned and amounts to approximately 1.25 acres and this includes the land to the left of the access drive leading to Manor house. The main garden is a quintessentially classic English in design, part walled and centres around an extensive lawn. There are flourishing beds of flowers and shrubs with box hedging borders and many mature trees, some are fruit baring. There is parking for multiple vehicles to the front and side of the property.

The thriving village of Markyate is renowned for it's friendly community and offers a range of conveniences catering for your day to day needs, including a junior mixed/infants school and the highly regarded Beechwood Park private school, which is an independent, co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 4 to 13, with a Montessori nursery department. There are also Village stores and characterful pubs. The Village is just a few miles from motorway links and 6 miles from Harpenden, where there is a fast rail line into central London, together with a more comprehensive range of shops and fine educational establishments.

Important note: Planning consent was granted in 2015 to convert Manor House into two dwellings with associated parking. The planning reference is 4/02688/15/ful.
