Description

An extremely unique opportunity to acquire a Grade II listed period farmhouse with associated residential dwellings, outbuildings and equestrian facilities. Once part of the renowned ‘Childwickbury Estate’ the property is perfectly suited for multi-generational living with its three individual residential dwellings known as Shafford Farm, The Old Granary and The Bothy. Additional benefits include a fabulous timber framed barn, a variety  of stables, further outbuildings, a manege and paddocks.

 

It certainly provides that ‘escape to the country’ feel, yet it is only just over two miles from St Albans City Centre and under six miles from Harpenden.

 

For the commuters both Harpenden and St Albans mainline stations are just a short drive away and the M1 motorway is less than four miles away which in turn provides access to the M25 and the North.

EPC rating: Unknown.

Shafford Farmhouse

The principal house is Shafford Farmhouse which is believed to date back to the 16th century and boasts a wealth of period features including exposed beams and a beautiful, vaulted ceiling in the kitchen/breakfast room. The accommodation itself is approaching 2,800 square feet and is arranged over two floors. Starting with the ground floor the space is comprised of a welcoming entrance hall, cloakroom, three flexible reception rooms, a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room, rear lobby and a handy utility. Moving upstairs there are four excellent-sized bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities. Bedroom three has its own cloakroom. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

The Old Granary

The Old Granary is a Grade II listed detached cottage occupying a large southerly facing plot and boasts a wealth of character and charm ranging from stable doors to a simply stunning vaulted ceiling with exposed beams in the master bedroom. Starting from the ground floor the accommodation is briefly comprised of a large entrance hall, two generously sized and flexible reception rooms (one of which can be used as a third bedroom), a farmhouse style kitchen and a bedroom with its own neutrally decorated en-suite shower room. Moving upstairs you will find a superb master bedroom offering an abundance of charm, with ensuite. To the rear there is a beautiful garden enclosed by mature trees and hedging providing a peaceful and private setting. To the front of the cottage there is a shingled parking area.

The Bothy, Barn & Additional Facilities

The final residential dwelling is The Bothy which is a charming studio cottage which would make the perfect annexe or could be used to generate additional income. The space is comprised of a large lounge/dining room, kitchen, inner hall and bathroom. There is also a mezzanine area. Attached to The Bothy there is a sizeable storage barn measuring in excess of 40ft in length and offers the potential for additional accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. The main barn, which is grade II listed, is a simply stunning timber framed building which is often referred to as The Party Barn. It measures in excess of 70ft in length and provides easy access to two further flexible rooms and the paddocks at the rear. This impressive space offers a multitude of opportunities for a would-be purchaser.
