About this property

Manor Farmhouse sits in a conservation area, on a magnificent south easterly 1.3-acre plot. The original timber framed house dates back to the early 18th century with later additions. It was part of the historic Knebworth estate until the early 1980's.

Beautiful period residence packed with character and sympathetically updated for modern family living.

There is a spacious reception hall, leading to a delightful drawing room with a feature fireplace. The dining room has a lovely bay window and adjoins the sunny orangery. There is a sitting room with a wood burner. The modern fitted kitchen with an Aga and Pantry has a second staircase to the principal bedroom. The utility room leads to the cloakroom and the back door. Outside there is a large covered and fenced area ideal for storing logs and wellies.

The spacious landing has striking exposed oak timbers. The principal bedroom has a beautiful cast iron fireplace, floor to ceiling sash windows which frame the breath-taking views of the rear garden and countryside beyond, as well as allowing morning sunshine to flood in. The principal bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms two of which have cast iron fireplaces and a recently modernised large family bathroom with a shower and roll top free standing Victorian bath.

A door from the dining room leads to the interconnecting hallway to the annex. Designed to be easily used as a separate dwelling the hallway also has its own front door. This space could easily be utilised as an independent multi-generational living space. The hallway leads into an impressive reception room with vaulted timber ceiling, large fireplace, and doors to the garden. There is a kitchen, shower room and two bedrooms one of which is currently an office.

Outside
The property is set well back from the road on a plot of 1.3 acres. A sweeping carriage driveway with two white five bar gates to the front provides ample parking and a detached double garage with EV charging point. The property sits very comfortably in its plot with pretty neighbouring properties and is opposite the war memorial.

There is natural screening by a mature, curved laurel hedge and trees with clipped box hedging and planted beds providing colour and interest.

The rear garden enjoys a lovely south easterly aspect and is well screened with a terrace providing an ideal space for outdoor entertainment and has spectacular unspoilt views of arable farmland and woods beyond. The garden has been creatively landscaped. It is a particularly notable feature, with an abundance of well stocked flower beds, a manicured lawn, rose arbour, a pond and an ‘all weather’ tennis court. Fresh vegetables are grown in the fenced raised vegetable garden as well as fresh fruit in the fruit net.
