Boasting over 4000sqft. of versatile accommodation, and being situated close to Knebworth mainline station, this is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a truly fabulous five bedroom detached Victorian villa with a sunny walled garden, various outbuildings, parking and double garage.

Offering versatile and characterful accommodation throughout, a double garage, three further attractive outbuildings, a large driveway and five spacious bedrooms, this extraordinary residence would be an absolute joy to live in!
Over the years, the entire property has been restored sympathetically by the current owners, retaining all characterful features including the high ceilings and large Victorian windows that flood the house in natural light along with everything that constitutes a grand, yet homely feeling. The accommodation is arranged in such a way that if required, it would suit multi-generation families with separate entrances perfect for annex living.

As you approach this very special property, you can but admire the pretty front garden, wide brick paved driveway and the grand front elevation of this stunning Victorian villa.
As you enter through the recently-restored main front door, porchway and original inner door with attractive stained glass, the bright, spacious main living room is located immediately off the hallway to the right. A beautiful fireplace with Victorian tiles provides a delightful focal point to the room. Enormous windows flood the room with natural light.
The impressive principal kitchen is a little further along the hall to the left. This wonderful room boasts a soft-seating area in which to relax with a striking open fireplace, space for a large dining table and a vast kitchen island. With bespoke units by 'Kevin Rust of Norfolk', the Aga and tiled surround provides another eye-catching focal point to the room along with the double butler sink, overlooking the attractive front garden. Bi-folding doors provide access to a delightful patio and the exquisite walled garden beyond. Large Victorian windows and a skylight mean this is another bright and airy room.
Past the kitchen, a grand, sweeping staircase stands proudly at the end of the hallway. At the foot of the stairs, a smart study to the left leads to a lovely sun room from which views of the beautiful rear garden can be enjoyed. A second door leads to the formal dining room, off of which you will find two further large rooms: a substantial reception room - currently being used as a craft room with external access to the side of the property - and a second characterful, fully-equipped, country kitchen/breakfast room complete with Aga, electric ovens, gas hob and butler sink with direct access to the rear garden via a stable door.
A large boot/utility room with side external access and downstairs cloakroom are located to the right of the staircase on the ground floor as well.

Upstairs, the property's spacious 'Jack and Jill' bathroom is located off the landing at the top of the stairs. It benefits from a large bath in the centre of the room and a separate shower. A second door leads from this bathroom into a large double bedroom with a south-facing aspect. Across the landing is another impressive double bedroom.
Beneath a second set of stairs, which lead up to two further large double bedrooms, both with substantial en-suite shower rooms; a cosy reading nook with delightful window seat nestles.
A huge loft is easily accessed through a door in one shower room and a significantly long eaves storage space can be accessed through a door in the second en-suite which has a particularly impressive shower.
In addition, and benefiting from views over the garden, at the top of the main staircase to the right, there is a dressing room, large en-suite bathroom with separate shower and a bright, lofty bedroom. Interestingly, this bedroom suite can also be accessed from the second kitchen at the rear of the house, via a staircase, once used only by the staff.

Externally, the property is equally striking and memorable. The stunning, wrap-around gardens have a good-sized storage shed, hayloft and further large characterful outbuilding, currently being used as an extremely well-equipped gymnasium. With windows and two stable doors along with power and lighting, this would be perfectly suited for a home office.
The garden is mainly laid to a very well-tended lawn, trimmed with pretty flower beds. There are a number of seating areas to eat and relax in, allowing the sun to be enjoyed in different areas of the beautiful garden as the sun moves round during the day. The large double garage, with power and lighting, completes the delights that this incredible Victorian villa has to offer.
