A home that blends country house appeal with modern creature comforts, all in a lovely setting on the edge of wonderful St Albans.
We love when homes manage to do two things incredibly well.
The thought of living in a wonderful country house is always enticing, of having a home set in its own grounds, a gated entrance giving privacy and a sense of grandeur.
There is also a draw toward the comforts that come with modern life and build design.
It's a real treat when the two combine, as they do here in Highfield Manor.
This lovely home spreads its carefully designed accommodation across two floors and it has all the creature comforts you hope for, the benefit of purpose built design.
Approaching by car, there is a lovely entrance from Highfield Lane, through gates and along a driveway, with the building revealing itself as you approach.
You can take a lift to the first floor and find the apartment entrance there.
Inside you have the option of how you use the accommodation, three bedrooms if you wish but we imagine it will be more likely that you will have a separate dining room, it's really designed that way and means the bedrooms then are separated from the daytime accommodation neatly. In fact, some may choose to use the study as an occasional room for a guest.
There is an air of class to the approach and that is matched inside.
Oak flooring greets you, a staircase leading up to the master bedroom and ensuite above. The study we mentioned could be appropriated as a further dressing room, although the master bedroom has lots of wardrobe space already.
A Daikin air conditioning system is installed and ceiling speakers point to an integrated sound system.
The kitchen is well appointed and stylish. The main bathroom, which sports a separate shower, sits beside the guest bedroom making life practical.
The main building sits within grounds of around four acres in total.
This is a great spot to find as a retreat from life or as somewhere to be in easy reach of St Albans city centre, without having all the hustle and bustle around you.
It is an easy location to make for the M25 from and London is simple by car or by train.
Tyttenhanger is a small hamlet with a popular pub, The Plough, renowned for serving real ale, it's a simple walk from here.
Highfield Park is nearby too, eighty-two acres of countryside including Mediterranean Garden, Petanque Courts, rose garden, woods, Millenium Maze and it is home to activities through the year.
There are lots of reasons why you will love life here and we'll enjoy showing you around.Get in touch if you like this property.
