Property description

Set in the heart of the village and with elevated views across open fields, the townhouses have been carefully designed, with a traditional brick facade, to blend in with the surrounding period properties. Each home is arranged over four floors, with flexible layouts to suit the needs of contemporary living. The generously-sized rooms have high ceilings and handsome traditional sash windows.

In addition to the eight townhouses, the Close offers an unusually large and stylish two-bedroom detached home. The expansive open-plan living space is ideal for entertaining, leading directly onto the private garden with wonderful views of the countryside beyond. The Close is set behind electric gates and has secure undercroft parking.

Village Life

With its mix of pretty period cottages and more substantial homes, Hertingfordbury is an affluent village highly desired by both local buyers and those from further afield, attracted by the rural lifestyle and sense of community. Mentioned in the Domesday Book as Hertfordingberie, meaning 'Stronghold of the people of Hertford', the village is close enough to medieval Hertford for residents to take advantage of all its amenities while still enjoying country life.

The village church, St Mary's, stands on a spot occupied by a church since the 13th century, overlooking the water meadows that lead down to the River Mimram. On the edge of the village is the 1,000-acre Panshanger Park, listed Grade II by English Heritage and a favourite destination for country walks. The Park has valuable wildlife habitats, farmland and extensive cycle routes such as the Cole Green Way along the old railway line that linked Hertford to Hatfield.

Villagers enjoy a very warm welcome at The White Horse Hotel, from which the development takes its name. The boutique hotel and pub has recently been refurbished and is under new management, promising "a genuine pub that attracts a faithful clientele to a lovely restaurant with real local flavour". There is a Co-operative store conveniently within a five-minute drive, with major supermarkets such as Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer in Hertford.
