This bright, spacious and tranquil one bedroom apartment is situated within this highly desirable private estate on the northwest outskirts of Hertford. The sympathetic conversion of this breathtaking building has created a collection of truly unique spaces retaining many of the original features, such as wood paneling and original double aspect windows, all of which have far reaching beautiful views. All the apartments share the most magnificent communal areas, including a grand carved wooden staircase and huge fireplaces, large halls with beautiful soft furnishings and plants, the detailing such as the intricate brass door handles or the huge flag stone floors are a delight. Being in such a beautiful setting that is so well maintained gives this property a feeling of luxury and grandeur whilst still maintaining a warm and welcoming atmosphere that is so important for a home. The estate is quiet and peaceful, providing a relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of town and work life, at the same time benefiting from being only a short distance from the town centre and excellent train connections into London.
Hertford state schools are among some of the best in the country such as Richard Hale and Presdales, however Heath Mount, Duncombe, Haileybury or St.Joseph’s in the Park are only a short distance should you require Independent or Boarding schools.
Goldings Hall was rebuilt in the 1870’s which was then owned by the merchant banker Robert Smith, son of Abel Smith. Robert was the Sheriff of Hertfordshire at the time. Goldings Hall is Grade II* listed and is part of the prestigious gated Goldings Estate which is approached by a long drive through beautiful grounds. Being set within 110 acres of parkland and rivers, which are on the English Heritage Register, residents benefit from full access to the approximately 60 acres of communal grounds within the estate.
There are plenty of things to keep you busy in the local area from a trip to the theatre or riding on horse-back through sun dappled woods, grabbing a coffee and cake in one of Hertford’s many cafes or enjoying a boat ride along the river taking in the country views. Being so close to London means you can enjoy both town and country life at the same time!
