Description

Originally built in c1624, Woodcock Lodge has had an exciting and varied history dating back to the Royal House of Stuarts in the extended area of the Hatfield House estate. The house was extended in the early 19th century and partitioned into its current configuration in the 1970s. The property for sale enjoys many of the historic attributes including the 17th century stone fireplace found in the beautiful dual aspect drawing room that looks down the gardens at the rear. Throughout one finds original features cleverly and sympathetically combined with those of modern living including bright spacious rooms, updated bathroom and separate shower room, a bespoke kitchen with an oil fired Aga, extensive storage and built in cupboards. In addition there are two useful cellars. Today, Woodcock Lodge is divided into two large houses, of which this is one, and three luxurious apartments. The Lodge is set in around nine and a half acres of partly moated grounds. Number 2 enjoys its own large garden together with the use of the additional three and half acres of wooded grounds. Number 2 also benefits from a double garage and extensive driveway parking. Woodcock Lodge is approached by a long private driveway that provides generous residents' and visitors' parking to the front of the house. Number 2 benefits from parking for three cars in the front driveway and two further cars in front of its own double garage that is found tucked away to the side of the main house. The gardens are a particular feature of the property. To the rear of the house is a large flagstone patio, a wonderful place to sit and while away a sunny day. Beyond the patio lawns extend with the garden leading down to the edge of the moat, approximately 300'. They are laid to lawn with many mature trees including Oaks and Mulberries, shrubs, Yew hedges and sunken flower beds. These gardens are private to number 2 with an additional three and a half acres of woodland with a sunken garden, mature trees, and spring bluebells and daffodils. Residents have "quiet enjoyment rights" over the private woodlands and are able to use them whenever they choose.

Epping Green is a quiet hamlet close to the villages of Little Berkhamsted, Bayford and Newgate Street Village. The area is well known for its country walks and riding facilities, with a selection of good local pubs/restaurants closeby. There is a busy well stocked village shop at Little Berkhamsted and Bayford provides the nearest railway station (approx 2.5 miles away) with a service into London's Kings Cross/Moorgate. The nearby towns of Hertford, Potters Bar and Broxbourne are all within easy reach and offer more extensive facilities as are road links to the A10, M25 and A1(M) . Education in the area is highly regarded with a fine selection of both state and private schooling.
