The Property:

This elegant five-bedroom house is set within approximately 1.36 acres of exquisite private gardens and meadows, with the River Lea fashioning a border to this remarkable plot that is set on the cusp of the Harpenden parish.


This is a beautiful home extending to approximately 3,000 sq ft, which has undergone a full programme of refurbishment in the modern classic style to include; a stunning, yet practical bespoke kitchen, an orangery style family room bursting with afternoon light, and a generous sitting room which takes maximum advantage of the lovely views across the river and over pastures beyond. The heart of the house is to be found in the orangery, which is a triumph in its design. Essentially open plan to the kitchen and representing the 'hub' of the house for informal day to day living. The sitting room, with its elegantly restrained décor and focal fireplace, forms one wing of the house and benefits from windows on three sides, creating a bright and spacious room with a far reaching vista over the surrounding countryside. At the other end of the house is a generously sized principal bedroom and en-suite with bi-folding doors that lead to a private patio and that showcase the most glorious views. A formal dining room, guest WC, boot room, study and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, the main bedroom benefits from a well-appointed en suite bathroom featuring a roll top bath and superb wet room style shower. There are 3 further bedrooms, each with original fireplaces, which share a family bathroom, with the benefit of a separate shower. Externally, the gardens and wild flower meadow are a particular feature and are set with the backdrop of the meandering river. Nestled amongst trees is an attractive Japanese shaped summer house that is currently being used as a home gym. At the end of the garden, just next to the river, is a delightful folly of an old-style timber built garden room, with its own turntable which turns to follow the sun from dawn till dusk. All in all, a spectacular and rare opportunity to acquire this wonderful family home.


Hunters Gate presents an idyllic setting on picturesque countryside offering the ambience of its rural position with the convenience of being just a mile from Harpenden Town Centre. The views from the house are superb with rolling countryside and pastureland surrounding this magnificent residence. The convenience of its Hertfordshire location provides an excellent choice of local Harpenden catchment schools, with St Georges, Sir John Lawes and Katherine Warington Schools just under a mile away. Harpenden's Town Centre offers an array of boutique shops, restaurants and facilities with the mainline station allowing direct access to St Pancras International in 26 minutes.
