A spectacular Contemporary Architect Designed Family Home set in Secluded Gated Grounds
A spectacular contemporary architect-designed family home set in secluded gated grounds of in all about 1.5 acres. To the main house there is approaching 4000 sq ft of internal living space as well as extensive exterior terraces alongside additional secondary accommodation. All situated in a popular and convenient location just outside St Albans and very well placed for access to St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn and Hemel Hempstead as well as excellent road & rail links and popular schools.
Home House draws its striking design from an arrangement of rectangular forms providing a series of layers, courtyards and walkways - interior and exterior living spaces surrounded by nature. A series of brick columns support an external galleried walkway around the perimeter of the house with covered external rooms at focal points providing shelter and a strong interior exterior connection.
Platform 5, the award winning architect, has successfully delivered a contemporary living space, combining rustic external elements with stylishly appointed interiors and exacting detailing, whilst taking maximum advantage of light, aspect and outlook. The timber clad first floor level is arranged as an informal composition of overlapping roof lines and terraces providing excellent outlooks over the garden, wooded grounds and Crown farmland.
As the property is a very unique and visually stunning piece of work in its own right, the current vendor has capitalised on this to create a business model around the property over recent years, whereby they hire it out for short periods of time to be used in a number of different ways, from video shoots to TV work, film work, fashion shoots etc. This has, over the last few years, provided in excess of £100,000 of income per annum with future bookings in place over the course of 2019. This is something that any future owner could easily carry on and expand in years to come. Please ask for more details.
Home House sits at the end of a private gated tree lined avenue within a woodland clearing with far reaching rural views to one side. Home House and the secondary accommodation, Little House, form a small estate that, while bold in design, connects successfully with the woodland setting. The garden is laid mainly to lawn and features a barbecue, fire pit, many mature trees and driveway parking for numerous vehicles.
From St Albans or Harpenden take the A5183 to Redbourn and then the B487 Redbourn bypass towards Hemel Hempstead. After about 1.5 miles Cherry Tree Lane is a turning to the left as you approach the brow of the hill. Home House is then about 400yds on the left, and can be identified by a pair of electric gates leading to the drive.
From the south take the B487 from Hemel Hempstead towards Redbourn. After leaving the town Cherry Tree Lane is immediately found on the right.Read all
