Five bedroom barn conversion near Cuffley in Hertfordshire with flexible accommodation and within easy commuting distance of London
This must be one of the most conveniently located, quiet rural positions available anywhere within striking distance of London or the eastern counties.
It is on the outskirts of the Hertfordshire village of Goffs Oak and just ten minutes from junction 25 of the M25. The British Rail station at Cuffley is just a five minute drive and the station at Broxbourne is some 15 minutes east.
The complex originally consisted of four barns and has its origins set as far back as 1650 when the front building was reputedly erected as a deer shelter within the royal hunting park of James I. It is believed that the east facing barn, which was originally timber framed, was subject to major renovation in 1769 at which time the back barn was added as a cattle shelter.
The whole site has been sympathetically renovated and restored by the present owners to provide versatile accommodation and is ideally suited to an extended or multi generation family; albeit we are two and it suited our needs perfectly. To be able to accommodate friends and relatives without having the intrusion into our own living space made for harmony and tranquility at such times.
The back barn which has been renovated to the same exacting standards is ripe for conversion into further living accommodation, or as a work area suitable to many businesses.
The fully enclosed courtyard provides ample security against the casual intruder and there are ample parking facilities both within the courtyard and on the adjoining land.
These premises are unique and are best suited to those whose criteria is not for the normal run of the mill. We have done our best to maintain the integrity of these barns whist providing an acceptable usable living environment.
There is scope for a new owner to install within the roof of the east facing barn internal dormers to afford a spectacular unimpaired panoramic view across the valley; quite a simple project, and indeed architects are currently producing an artist's impression of this
Briefly the accommodation extends to some 470 m². Within this area are three bathrooms, two shower rooms, five bedrooms, two kitchens, two utility rooms, two living / dining rooms, garaging and storage, generally what is shown on the available floor plans; use the areas for what best suits you.
There is scope to create separate individual areas of accommodation subject to permission.
It is understood more land might be available by separate negotiation with the adjoining owner.
Needs to be viewed to be appreciated as no amount of words could adequately describe it. For sale only due to my wife and I deciding that the French lifestyle is more agreeable to us.
