Three bedroom barn conversion in Gorhambury, near St Albans, Hertfordshire
A characterful barn conversion, in a courtyard setting, located just four minutes drive from the historic and highly sought after town of St Albans, and just 30 minutes from the front door to central London
A beautiful 'wow factor' triple height character three bedroom barn conversion with lovely sunset views over open fields, by the Gorhambury Country Estate, St Albans.
The property is just 30 minutes door to door from the rural courtyard entrance to the platform at London St Pancras Station. Absolutely the best of both worlds for a London commuter.
Living room: a beautiful triple height oak framed open plan 32' x 20' living space, with a seven meter chimney, fireplace and new log burner, as well as giant double height windows onto the garden. The room boasts a wealth of original beams.
Kitchen / dining area: Open plan modern kitchen and dining area seating six.
A hardwood staircase leads up to stunning mezzanine master bedroom in the rafters with en-suite family bathroom.
Two further double bedrooms are on the ground floor, one with walk in wardrobe.
Designer downstairs wet room also just installed.
Overall a beautifully presented conversion, a rare and balanced mix of bright, clean and modern interior design complementing beautiful old character features.
The property is the prominent barn set in a graveled courtyard of seven other barns and cottages, behind the equestrian Corner Farm.
To the front the property has five parking spaces and a small courtyard garden.
To the rear is a good sized family garden, with a decked patio, lots of large mature planting making it very private, and backing onto beautiful countryside, open fields and grazing horses.
The garden faces west and is graced by stunning sunsets on the horizon.
A new glazed log cabin outbuilding has just been completed adding a charming office space or gym, or even a guest room in the summer.
The property also comes with a separate vaulted timber and slate roofed garage, which can provide ample 'loft space' storage above and parking or studio / workshop space below.
Arguably the most impressive feature of the barn is its setting, just 4 minutes drive from the historic old town side of highly sought after St Albans, out in lovely open countryside towards the village of Leverstock Green, and just across the road from the new Centurion golf club.
It's also just 4 minutes drive to Waitrose, and some lovely junior schools, and 8 minutes drive to St Albans City station, with its superb 20 minute trains into St Pancras. You can be on the platform in central London just 30 minutes after leaving your rural country barn home.
You're also just a few miles from Apsley Station for trains into Euston, and just a mile from the nearest M1 junction, for the M25, Luton Airport and a direct drive into London.
Overall just about the best location you could get for easy access to everything whilst enjoying the rural country feel.
